“Best Stay in Ireland!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2010

Kileen House was definitely the best place we stayed while in Ireland. The service was amazing, the room was great, and the bar downstairs was the best. We learned how to pull the proper pint, received a special Anniversary Dessert and had great conversations. Close to everything and great insight to where to visit. If you are anywhere near here...STAY HERE!

Friends in Ohio suggested this hotel, so we followed their advice and planned for two nights at the start of our exploration of the ring of Kerry. Never before or since have we stayed at a hotel that offered such personal care from arrival to departure! We decided to return for another night a week later--at the end of our Kerry circuit. Now, more than a year after our Ireland trip, we still think of our conversations with Michael, Geraldine, and others at Killeen House. Some day we will return!

Wonderful experience - Beautiful place and grounds. We traveled with our three small children (6, 5, and 1) and 2 grandparents. We stayed in 2 of the championship rooms for 3 nights. Rooms were great and staff were amazing! They accomodated us and the kids with everything from a crib in the room, high chair in the dining room, Geraldine taught our 2 older kids how to putt golf balls in the pub, and arranged for a sitter (sister of one of the waitresses) to babysit so we could have an adults night out. Food was amazing both at our dinner in Rozzers, as well as at each breakfast where they served the best scrambled eggs we have ever eaten. Charlie the manager could not have been more accomodating if he tried and we all enjoyed the craic with Geraldine and Michael. Michael and Geraldine were also great resources in planning our stay in Killarney. Others guests were incredibly friendly as well. You don't need to be a golfer or on a golfing vacation to enjoy the Killeen House, but if you are, you'll enjoy it even more. Either way be sure to bring a favorite golf ball for the wall of the pub. We will definitely stay at the Killeen House again when in Killarney.

I really cannot say enough about Killeen House. The staff are wonderful, all of them. You will truly feel at home and it is such a gorgeous part of the country. They have an amazing way of making you feel like you have been there forever, if not as if you are family... important family, and meeting your every need. We had a wonderful time and of all of the places we stayed during our three week tour Killeen House rates at the very top. I would not hesitate to go again. And again. And again. Michael managed to book us all in one room (as I had requested), and with two teenaged boys we still had room to spread out and be comfortable. The restaurant was great and the pub was too. If you need help with anything in the area they will help, so very graciously as well. Charlie is a wonder, indeed the whole staff is superb. Even housekeeping wished us a safe journey and a speedy return. I loved the whole experience. And the location is perfect for so much! We toured the Ring of Kerry, my husband and boys golfed (while I slept in and enjoyed a lovely breakfast in my room), and there is so much else you can reach from there. I could have stayed weeks. An absolute delight. Book it, go, trust me! You will leave wanting only to return and feeling like you have made wonderful friends.

Second visit for my wife and I. Brought another couple with us this time. Probably the most relaxing hotel in the world. Michael and Geraldine are extrodinary hosts. The restaurant has to one of the best in Ireland and seems to keep getting better. Must be a mecca for serious golfers. Surrounding area is possibly of the most beautiful in Ireland. Just a wonderfully comfortable place to spend a few days.

We spent 3 nights at this friendly and inviting country inn. Michael and Gerry, along with their kind "staff", make you feel like you are part of their family. They enjoy what they do and sincerely wanted to make our stay relaxing and memorable. Can't say enough about the hospitality. Don't bother going out for dinner - We have world class restaurants in New York and I would put the restaurant at the Killeen House up against any of them. We ate breakfast and dinner all three nights - no need to go elsewhere. We can't wait to return.

We stayed at the Killeen hotel last july (2009) and enjoyed it a lot. The house is really beautiful and feels like the dream house you always wanted for yourself.
Each member of the staff seems to know your name from the moment you arrive.
The owners are really nice and come to see you everyday to make sure you're happy. I was pregnant at the time so they upgraded us to a bigger room once they had one available. Before we left on our last day; they gave us very good advise on what road to take.
The best thing in this hotel is the breakfast. Expect a variety of options that are really tasty and served with class!!
I can't speak highly enough of this place. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Killarney.
