Guesthouses and B&Bs
Strolling distance from town but far enough away to be quiet, Meadowlands is an unexpectedly romantic four-star hotel, with an onsite bar and restaurant in case you just want to stay put. Rooms are done out in autumnal hues and service is spot-on...
Crystal Springs B&B
You can cast a line from the timber deck of this wonderfully relaxing riverside B&B or just laze about on the adjacent lawn...
Dingle Bay Hotel
It's business chic with flourishes in the 25 light, modern rooms, which are crammed with amenities. Prices fall significantly in the quieter months.
Brandon Hotel & Spa
If you want corporate big-hotel anonymity, the Brandon is the place. Pricey but with good facilities, including a spa and leisure centre, the smart rooms have cream colour-schemes.
The friendly, family-run Imperial is not as stylish as the Grand but has modern bedrooms and good facilities, including a wood-panelled bar offering trad sessions on Friday and Saturday.
The Listowel Arms Hotel
Listowel's only full-service hotel is a family-run affair in a Georgian building that balances touches of grandeur with country charm. Furnished with antiques and marble sinks, the 42 rooms overlook the river and the racecourse...
This unrepentantly modern, 29-room boutique hotel cheekily uses its older sibling the Killarney Park Hotel's pool and spa...
So commanding it doesn't need an address, the pillared, ivy-covered Malton in the centre of town is a throwback to Victorian elegance – at least from the outside – with pompous service to match...
The 34 bedrooms range from those with 1920s Celtic deco furniture to more modern rooms with black-and-white bathrooms and the bath in a sweeping alcove. Trad sessions fire up in Buckley’s Bar on many nights and Sunday lunchtimes.
Killarney Royal Hotel
A great midrange option close to the action, Murphy's 20 rooms have been stylishly refurbished – ask for one overlooking the street. If it's lashing rain, you won't have to leave as there's a highly respected restaurant and pub onsite...
Grand Hotel Tralee
Built in 1928, the Grand is just that. At night, it's lit up like a beckoning refuge, which it is, but it maintains the feel of a proper county-town hotel in its public areas. The 44 rooms have had a stylish refit.
Killarney Plaza Hotel & Spa
Dominating the view of the south end of Main St, on the edge of Killarney National Park, this large, 198-room hotel is built in a brilliant white traditional style...
Dingle Benners Hotel
A Dingle institution, melding old-world elegance, local touches and modern comforts in the quiet rooms, lounge, library and refurbished, very popular Mrs Benners Bar...
Travel Inn Killarney
The Headley barons’ former residence, built in the 18th century and set in 75 acres of woodland, is regal quarters for a 170-bed hostel...
Killarney Self Catering Haven Suites
Great central base. Contemporary apartments open onto balconies and have full kitchens.
Sheen Falls Lodge
The Marquis of Landsdowne's former summer residence still feels like an aristocrats' playground, with a spa and 66 rooms with DVD players and Italian marble bathrooms, and views of the falls and across Kenmare Bay to Carrantuohil...
Done out in beautiful timbers, the individually decorated rooms (some with classical printed wallpaper, some with contemporary sofas and glass) at this boutique guesthouse offer better bang for your buck than bigger, less personal places around town...
An elegant Georgian facade fronts this friendly hostel and B&B. The grandeur has faded, but there are a sizeable kitchen and lounge. The dorms, named after Irish scribblers, have their own bathrooms as do the private rooms...
Killarney Railway Hostel
Fronted by a terrace with picnic tables, this tucked-away place near the train station is about as inviting as hostels get, with bunks nestling in nooks, and maps and cycling itineraries on the walls...
This modern building exudes all the character of an auditor at work but inside the pink bedding is worthy of Barbie’s dream house. The common spaces are comfortable and the elevated location provides good sea views.
Simple and sweet, this IHH affiliate is a good walking base. The jaunty yellow exterior and pink sheets will put vim in your vigour.
One of several on this strip close to town, Ashville is spotless. The owners take deep pride in their place and the 18 rooms are comfortable and well equipped. It’s very quiet.
