Great get away
Great area to see Killarney. Take a carriage ride through the park with Tommy. Knowledgeable and a dry sense of humor. Would recommend the Celtic Dance show Smaller venue and excellent. The staff was friendly and professional. Room was nice and bathroom was great. Great breakfast downstairs. Great for all ages. Jay C New Jersey

4/10 Fair

The hotel is located adjacent to Brewer's Alley - it literally felt like we were trying to sleep in the middle of a pub. There was a huge streetlight angled right into the room, which we were able to block with black out blinds. The noise didn't die down until 3:00 a.m. We were also lured in by the pink gin bar, which was not open. The food at the restaurant was mediocre. We also had to park across the street.

The Ross is a unique hotel with a decor that has a unique flair. The staff are super friendly and assisted us with everything we may have needed help with The rooms are nice, the restaurant is great and the location is awesome right in the middle of a very lively Killarney. We recommend this hotel for individuals and families as well.

4/10 Fair

The hotel is a very nice property with a great location. However, there is pretty much no good soundproof between the windows and the busy streets around them. It was a Thursday night and I could not go to bed until about 2 AM because there were people in the back alleys partying and making noise. Don’t stay here if you want a nice night of sleep
