Loved the rustic feel. Our room was great and the entire house and pub was very fun. Great staff and fun to be around Right in town so extremely convenient to everything. Had an excellent meal in the restaurant for one of our dinners and a first rate breakfast each morning the place to stay when in town for golf

We popped in for a bite to eat on our trip and we were promptly attended to by a lovely waiter who took us to our table. This place has great ambience and warmth. Great service, attentive staff and great food. Even though the restaurant was very busy or orders were taken and no delays were experienced. Would definitely recommend... More

Spent two nights here and the owner was very accommodating. The rooms were good but being an older building one can hear the floors creek when someone walks in the room above. Unfortunately they had a prom night for the young kids in town and the party went on til the wee hours of the morning and nobody got any... More

The service in this venue is crap.I tried to book a table one day having gone in at approx 5.30 pm.I was assured by the manager that a seat would be waiting for me on my return at 7.30 pm.This was completely untrue. Having finally got a seat at the bar counter,I waited for an hour for the joint of... More

Joan & John are so consistent with the hospitality they put out, it makes you keep wanting to return. I always refer Kilcooley's to anyone traveling to Ballybunion. Food always a special treat as well, make it a stop along your travels. Brian is a great addition as he is always working hard and always a pleasant face to see.

It's a very nice restaurant with a great garden. But to wait an hour for food, was very disappointing however it was lovely. Overall I would say it's average as the wait lets the nice food down when your starving. Perhaps visit on a quiet day after a beach walk 😀 Would recommend to family's and tourists as the location...

Stayed in the Kilcooly House on our way to the Ring of Kerry. The weather was awful and arriving in the hotel felt like finding a refuge. The owener greeted us with a warm smile and welcome. The hotel itself is beautiful - a real country house feel. We ate in the bar and the food was great. Excellent breakfast,... More

Just want to give a heartfelt thanks to John, Joan and all the staff at Kilcooly's for a wonderful weekend. I stayed at the Country House the night before my wedding on the 17th of July and everyone was so welcoming and helpful.
