This is not a review because this house is CLOSED and has been for at least a year. If you wish to verify this contact Kildare Garda (Police) station, which is situated directly across the road from this "hotel" which is locked up & has To Let signs on it. Bord Failte will also verify its closure. I really think... More

The Derby House Hotel is a small but wonderful family run hotel in Kildare Town. We really enjoyed our stay there during the summer. The staffer are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch and evening meals is top notch. We will certainly be back. The Derby House is everything I like about small Irish family run hotels.

The Irish staff and the young Chinese Lady were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean if not a bit worse for ware. The kettle didn't work - not the end of the world. No wireless internet that I could connect to although the hotel literature mentioned DSL connectivity somewhere in the Hotel (I forget where). The family room... More

We stayed there one Monday night for the dancing which very good. Bedroom was terrible, very outdated and uncomfortable. Shower did not work. No toiletries except a large plastic bottle of bubble bath. Breakfast was only so so served in the bar. No use complaining because they take your money on arrival which can be a bad sign. Staff were... More

When I got arrived in Kildare Town, I asked a shop assistant to direct me to the hotel. The look on her face said it all. She felt sorry for me. As I arrived at the extremely quiet hotel, I was greeted by very friendly staff. That I can't fault. The interior is quite shabby and could do with a... More

This hotel offers a comfortable stay in a central part of the town. We had a nice double room which has a nice view in the morning but it is a bit small. Breakfast was lovely home-made Irish breakfast and the staff friendly and helpful. There are no other swimming pool but it has a cosy reasonably priced bar. Had... More

I have recently returned from my cousin's wedding in Kildare, and as I live in Armagh, we decided to stay overnight, as did many of the other wedding guests. The groom block-booked rooms for us and we got a family room, in which there was supposed to be 2 adults and 3 children. When we got to the room, we... More
