Room was average, bed was no better than average and there was quite a bit traffic noise from the main road. Leisure facilities were good. Breakfast was good.Special mention to the steak in the bar which was excellent and the service... More

After a tough couple of weeks in work, me and my partner decided to take a nice relaxing weekend away, but this was not the case!! The receptionist who greeted us for check-in on Friday evening was truly lovely and a credit to have working for your hotel. The room was clean other than the cobwebs found in the corners.... More

There were 4 of us in the Kileshin Restaurant for a meal on saturday night. Lovely surroundings and everybody looked to be enjoying themselves. The menu was 3 course for €32 which included a striploin steak. I had a lovely goats cheese brushetta and there was also caesar salad and brocolli soup ordered at the table. The caesar salads looked... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your review, unfortunately we are only in a position to make arrangements when they are booked with us. The organisers of the conference were asked to make lunch arrangements for this group in order to avoid this type of occurrence. It is impossible for us to guess how many of the conference attendees would stay... More

As a regular Sunday lunch customer I would just like to say how disappointed I was to see that the windows in the bar have been frosted. My children love to sit at one of the tables in the window every Sunday but there's no point now. Seems like a very strange thing to do, surely passers by would be... More

Dear Guest, It is disappointing that our upgrade of the bar has upset your children. We frosted the lower windows in the bar to give more privacy for the diners and patrons of the bar. Feedback highlighted the openness was putting patrons off. We will be softening the frosting through stencilling work which may make the area more appealing to... More

This is the 4th time in 12 months I have visited the Killeshin Hotel and the 4th time I am obligated to go to the bar, ask for a menu, and go over to the bar again and order my food or drink. This is despite the availability of two (sometimes 3) bar staff who any time I am there... More
