We went to Ireland to celebrate or 55th (Emerald) anniversary, and chose the Castleross Hotel Restaurant to have our celebratory meal. The food was mediocre, but what really put us off were the children in both the bar and the restaurant - shouting, screaming little monsters - don't parents control their children any more? The staff should have had this... More

The grounds around the hotel are really nice but one draw back is probably the location. If you're looking for somewhere accessible to town by foot I would recommend staying somewhere else... More

Stayed in the holiday homes with my family of 3 children, 5, 2 & 4 mths in Aug 14. We were given no information at check in just the keys to the house & a map. The houses are spacious, have everything needed for a family stay but are very old fashioned. Although clean inside the windows were dirty &... More

Spaciously sized accommodation not cramped at all. Leiaure centre facilities good for all family. Good base for travelling Kerry. Town centre close by for restaurants and music. WiFi is not good and pre-histiric speed but otherwise all good.

I loved everything about this hotel: location, views, service, room comfort. It was an excellent stay . I also enjoyed the history room, which explained the history of this beautiful hotel. Kilarney is a most beautiful area. If you stay here, get out and enjoy the country.

We love the holiday homes, they're so spacious, beautiful location, amazing to see Santa's reindeer crossing the golf course every morning & evening. Magical. My 3 year old will give Rory mcelroy a run for his money.
