We liked the general friendliness all round, we did not find a single :-(( - face in the hotel. An enjoyable experience. We were disturbed twice after settling in the room, but were more than compensated by the hotel for the inconvenience: 1 bottle of wine with our dinner and 2 mornings breakfasts 'on the house'... we can only recommend the Great Southern in Killarney, and we will be back soon!

This hotel is full of charm!! loved it

We arrived and got upgraded from delux double to a junior suite, which was fantastic. It is very central and has plenty of parking for a small charge. We had dinner in the restaurant the 1st night and it was delicious. We did not try the breakfast. The only thing is that the bedding was very warm and there is no air conditioning but everything else was perfect.
