Killarney Royal Hotel

“There is much to comment The Killarney Royal; It enjoys a prime street frontage on the approach to the town and its attractive exterior really makes a statement.” - AA Inspector

Our Inspector's view

This town centre boutique property dates from 1900, and while it retains much of the charm and character of that period, it is bang up to date in terms of comfort in its spacious bedrooms. Traditional in style, they are all air conditioned, and have all the modern conveniences and connectivity you’d expect. The busy Royal Bar & Bistro is a favourite with locals, popping in for coffee or afternoon tea. The Candle Room is the atmospheric restaurant, open for dinner. Parking and leisure facilities are available on a complimentary basis to residents at their sister hotel less than a five-minute walk away.

About the area

Discover County Kerry

Ireland’s most easterly county, Kerry, features a coastline of many inlets and peninsulas. It’s also home to the country’s highest mountains – the three peaks of the quaintly-named MacGillycuddy's Reeks range; highest first, they are Carrauntoohil, Beenkeragh and Caher.

The Reeks are part of the Killarney National Park, which covers 26,000 acres, and was Ireland’s first. Californian William Bowers Bourn bought the Muckross estate in 1911 and presented it to the nation in 1932. The park encompasses three island-spotted lakes: Lough Leane, or Lower Lake, Muckross or Middle Lake, and Upper Lake. 

Killarney itself has been a popular holiday spot since Victorian times. These days it fills to bursting point in summer and there’s a regular programme of festivals. The stately Catholic Cathedral, St Mary’s, is on the western edge. The oldest public building is Killarney House, which dates back to the 1740s.

Tralee is the county town of Kerry, the northeast gateway to the Dingle Peninsula and known for its Rose of Tralee International Festival. The town was founded in the 13th century by the Earls of Desmond.
