The Ross

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Ciara Treacy runs the show in the uber-stylish The Ross, the Killarney town-centre hotel where her grandmother first established the Treacy reputation as Kerry hoteliers par excellence. It’s a tradition continued by her dad, Padraig, who runs The Killarney Park, alongside her brother, Marcus, and Mr Treacy himself also served his time here in the centre of town.
The Treacy signature is a simple one: it is the art of being ahead of the curve, of understanding what your customer wants even before the customers themselves know it, and then putting your research and your hunches and your experience into operation. So The Ross not only has the slickest style in town, but also has the best cocktails, an area where Irish hotel bars have lagged behind the international trend to hire talented mixologists to give their bar an identity. And the cooking downstairs in the almost-demented glam of the Cellar One restaurant is wise and hip: small plates offer chickpea cakes, or air-dried beef or Kerry lamb lollipops, whilst large plates have cod fillet with Ted Browne’s crab or Skeaghanore duck with duck spring roll. Ms Treacy is making her granny proud.
