“Best place to stay in Ireland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Arrived to an extremely warm welcome from two lovely, hospitable hosts!
Throughout the course of our stay they went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Both the room, the view and the castle were like a scene from Pride and Prejudice. We will definitely be making another visit and would highly recommend it to friends and family.

My husband, 1-year old daughter and I stayed here recently for one night after a last-minute booking. When we arrived, we were greeted by Kathleen, who was both friendly and helpful, asking if there was anything special we needed for our daughter. Our room was spacious, quiet, very clean and overlooked a scenic farm and pasture. In the morning, we took a walk around the stunning gardens and grounds - my daughter especially liked visiting the hens that provided our breakfast eggs. Absolutely everything we ate for breakfast, including the unique egg dishes, homemade scones & jam and stewed rhubarb was delicious. I would highly recommend this place to anyone traveling in the area!

I have just come back from a one night stay in Killiane Castle. It was a visit that was far too short. It has such a homely atmosphere and the owners are so welcoming. It was so much nicer than staying in one of the large faceless hotels in the town. Wonderful experience, will be back.

This was our second stay here, this time with 2 small children.

Firstly, the location is beautifully remote and peaceful. If you want to look out of your bedroom window & see farmland, this is an excellent place to be. The rooms are furnished to a high standard, with a tea lounge downstairs, and a guest lounge with a good selection of books.

The facilities include a great outside space for walking, and croquet & tennis are available. The children particularly liked feeding the chickens!

Breakfast is a wonderful treat, almost anything you could wish for is available and it's ALL delicious. Service is friendly & welcoming, and we'd definitely stay again when we use Rosslare port.

Killiane Castle was a rate find, a last minute booking that turned out to surpass all expectations. Quiet, secluded location, beautifully appointed rooms, charming, friendly host and a great breakfast to boot! Could not recommend more, shame we only got to spend the one night.
Plenty to do, even with young children!

We travelled as a family and stayed in the family room. Accompanying us were our 2 small children. They LOVED it! Much to explore. I liked that it was an actual working farm with cows, chickens and lambs. The owners son let us watch him milk the cows which the kids thought was really neat. I also loved that the hotel was built into castle ruins. The owners set up scaffolding that you could climb up and get inside the in tact areas of it. Really great views from the top! Kathleen, the owner made us an absolutely amazing breakfast and set us on our way back to Dublin to catch our flight back home. We hated to go and will be back again. I will recommend this hotel to everyone I know who is traveling to Ireland.

I usually never write reviews but our experience at Killiane Castle is always the high point of our yearly trip home to Ireland. My wife, three small children (9,5 and 5) and I have stayed here for several years and the kids actually ask me if we're related to the family.

It's an ideal location for young children, open fields, beautiful nature walks, fantastic gardens, vegetable patch, free range eggs, the lot!

Kathleen and the family go out of their way to make sure we have everything we need and then some. The kids can participate in watching the cows getting milked, we can organize Bar-B-Qs in the gardens, sit out in the sun on the benches and tables provided, as the kids run around and play on the lawns, take walks through the woods, etc.

I can't recommend Killiane Castle enough and the main attraction for us is the family who make us feel so welcome every time. 10 out of 10 for service, value, sleep quality, cleanliness, location and rooms and another 10 out of 10 for genuine warmth so can be so lacking in many of the other places we've stayed throughout Ireland.

Room Tip: Great self-catering apartments within castle walls.
