“Perfect Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Having previously stayed in Killeen House it came as no surprise to find the warmth of welcome remained as ever. We were greeted by Stephen and shown to our room, recently refurbished and upgraded with a new bathroom and walk in shower and a VERY comfortable bed.
It is always a pleasure to meet Michael and Geraldine and their staff as they care for their guests in their professional and friendly way, in what can only be described as a unique - 'charming' little hotel! The atmosphere, the service and superb quality of food and drink in such a beautiful setting is hard if not impossible to beat.
If you have the opportunity to stay in Killeen House and dine in Rozzers Restaurant don't miss it. Our two night stay was so relaxing it seemed like a week away!

As reviews go they don't get an awful lot better than this one....!

Thank you so much for the wonderful words and even moreso for taking the time and trouble to write them and post them up here on Trip Advisor - we are very grateful to you.

And the best compliment of all that places such as ours can get is when people come back to us as you have done.

We're delighted you enjoyed your second visit as much as your first one and we just know that we'll have the pleasure of your company again when you back back to us for round three....!!

Thanks again so much and all the very best to you both.

Michael & Geraldine

My partner and I had a fantastic stay at Killeen House. I grew up in Ireland and was hoping to give him a real introduction to Irish hospitality - Killeen house delivered beyond every expectation.

The owners (Geraldine and Michael) exhibit a genuine warmth in what they do, from breakfast conversations to advice on a day's driving in the Ring of Kerry, or the best way to get to Galway the next day (that Ferry saved us hours!).

The food was also outstanding, the highlights for me were the breakfast kippers and the homemade trifle. The little golf themed bar is a real treat.

The room was spacious and well appointed. The grounds and surrounding environs are frankly idillic. I would recommend staying here than in Killarney proper (which is only a 10 minute drive anyway).

So in summary, I could not recommend Killeen House more strongly to prospective visitors. Combined with the Ring of Kerry and it's amazing scenery, it'll be the highlight of your holiday!

A group of 6 Business friends visited Rozzers restaurant on 25th April 2015 and what a wonderful treat. About 7 km out from Killarney but well worth the visit if only for the splendid views of the Reeks. but that's not all - the food and its presentation was superb. the Rack of Lamb was divine as was the steak. Geraldine and staff made us feel at home and made our night out so enjoyable.. the wine list there is superb also.

Hi John and thank you so much for this wonderful review here on Trip Advisor - we really appreciate it!

It was great to welcome the ILCU to Killarney yet again, and you all certainly make a vast difference to the buzz around the town for the weekend!

Thanks again so much John - and we look forward to welcoming you all back again in the hopefully not-too-distant future.

The accommodations, food, and service were superb. Geraldine & Michael provided a lot of information and recommendations on things to see and do while in Killarney. They made you feel like family, not just a guest. We stayed only 2 nights but plan to return for a week on our next trip to Ireland. They were rated 4 Stars when we booked the tour package, but they are definitely a 5 Star facility!

I stayed here for 2 nights visiting friends in Killarney 15th-17th April. What an excellent choice it turned out to be. The owners Michael and Geraldine were super hosts and with staff Stephen and Margaret backing them, they go the extra mile to make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. I had dinner one night and the food is excellent with a great menu choice. Breakfasts second to none. Definitely a place I will return to when visiting the area. Lovely en-suite bedrooms. Wi-fi free and excellent. An excellent place to stay.

Hi Eddie and thank you so much for the truly fantastic review here on Trip Advisor - we are very grateful to you!

It's always very nice to see the word 'excellent' appear in any review we get for the Killeen House.

But when we see it appear no less than FOUR times in the one review, then it's humbling indeed!

Thank you again Eddie and now that you've found us, we trust you'll be darkening our doorstep again in the not too distant future...

All the best.

Stayed recently at this wonderful hotel we could not fault it in any way. Had a beautiful dinner and breakfast not to mention the fantastic service and hospitality. Top marks also to the accommodation. We highly recommend and will definitely be back

This hotel is perfect. The staff are very helpful. We stayed in a suite overlooking the lake. The views were stunning. The food was fancy enough for the adults whilst still being suitable for children. This was my second time staying in this hotel,the first time I was a young child, and the good memories of that stay are still with me. Hoping to get back there again.

Hi Galwaysgiirl.

What a fantastic review - but we're wondering if you have posted it for the right Hotel!

Here in the Killeen House, as well as our 15 Standard bedrooms we also have 8 really beautiful deluxe bedrooms. But sad to say, we don't have any suites, and even sadder to say, we don't have any views of Killarney's world renowned Lakes....!

We think maybe the Aghadoe Heights Hotel, the Hotel Europe or the Lake Hotel might be possible places you stayed in?

In any case, we here in the Killeen House are delighted that you enjoyed your Killarney visit - and we'd love to welcome you to our little place if and when you're back in the area.

Thanks again and all the best.
