We had a great night out. As there were a match on television we actually had our meal in the bar. The menu had a nice variety and what we got was lovely. There was great atmosphere in the bar and the staff were mainly extremely nice..

We had one night at this hotel in a spacious but slightly dated (60s decor) room. It was clean, the location was quiet although the room had no outlook as such. Plenty of parking and friendly reception. Evening meal in the hotel restaurant was fine. Not much in Rathkeale itself to recommend it

We stayed in the hotel to celebrate my parents wedding anniversary, and from the outset the staff were extraordinarily friendly, professional, and made the entire party feel welcome and comfortable. The food was equally excellent, as was the entertainment. The room was clean and well equipped, and again the next morning provided a great breakfast, served with a smile. I'd... More

Upon booking I requested a quiet room as I knew there was a function on. We checked in at 10.30pm with no problems. We stayed 2 nights and couldn't complain about anything. Breakfasts were excellent and we ate and enjoyed a meal in the hotel on one of our nights. On the night there was a function on we were... More

When we checked in, the staff failed to tell us that there was a wedding reception there that night for 300 people. After a long flight from California we needed a good night's sleep but that was impossible. A live band played until 2 AM and guests were celebrating just outside our window until nearly 4 AM. Had we known... More

We recently spent two nights at this hotel in Rathkeale. There was a friendly welcome when we arrived at the hotel. The room we had been allocated was very comfortable, also the bed. It would have been useful if there had been a waste bin in the room, as it was there was only a small pedal bin in the... More

We stayed at Rathkeale to be close to the Shannon Airport for our trip home, and it was a great choice. We booked the suite, and it was spacious and beautiful. The staff is very friendly and food at the Bistro was great. We had placed a wake up call, but I awoke 45 minutes prior to that time and... More

The Rathkeale House hotel is more like a Bed and Breakfast in terms of its welcome and hospitality. The owner and manager, Damian, cannot do enough for his guests and is constantly around, looking after their needs. The staff are largely Irish and quite friendly. The room had a comfortable bed, new TV and several brochures on what you could... More
