The River Island Hotel is a beautiful 3 star with a prime location in the colourful town of Castleisland right in the heart of County Kerry.
This relaxing hotel is not compromised by design or over styled, but a place where the overall effect is relaxed yet contemporary, unusual but homely. A place where fabrics, finishes and luxury home-quality furnishings, will cradle you in comfort.
Castleisland is situated in the Valley of the River Maine and know as ‘the Gateway to the Kingdom’. In Castleisland, you are in the heart of the Siabh Luachra, a part of Ireland that is known and respected for it's love and contributions to traditional Irish music and dance.
Castleisland is a fantastic base for your stay in Kerry. It is a short drive from Kerry Airport (10-15 minutes approx), it is on the main road to Limerick/Shannon and it is also within a short drive from Killarney, Tralee and Dingle. A great base for touring the beautiful south west county of Kerry.
