“Great Castle Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

My wife and I did a 8 night trip where we stayed at 4 different Castle Hotels. Kilronan by far was the best and most beautiful we stayed in. We loved our room, the bet was amazing (best one the whole trip), and the grounds were just beautiful. I would totally recommend Kilronan. Loved it!

Having stayed in many hotels in Ireland Kilronan Castle is the first that truly blew me away. The location is rural and very beautiful. The views of the lake is amazing and it's truly a walkers paradise.

The decore is beautiful and well maintained and our room was lovely, very comfortable and spacious. However some bottles water and a biscuits in the room would be nice.

We used the spa which was great but very busy when we were there. Our treatments were amazing.

We ate twice in the palm court and once in the bar. The menu is limited however the food was very tasty. However the service was not great, this issue with service being poor appeared to be isolated within this area as the service in the breakfast room, at reception and in the spa was outstanding.

Kilronan Castle itself is an excellent hotel, absolutely too class. The winner however is the grounds, lake and surrounding area. With two very young kids, it was a great place to stay and explore the beauty of Ireland. I would definitely recommend it our friends. Loved it!

My husband and I recently stayed overnight in Kilronan Castle on a special deal. The surroundings are truly magnificent with the hotel overlooking a beautiful, tranquil lake and public areas furnished appropriately for a castle. Our room was overlooking the lake and had an extremely comfortable bed and fabulous bathroom with walk in shower and bath.
We had afternoon tea in the splendid drawing room and an excellent dinner in the restaurant. Breakfast was cooked to order and there was a wide choice. Staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. We were lucky with the weather and had a leisurely stroll around the lake before dinner.
Kilronan is definitely in my top ten hotels in Ireland. We didn't get to the spa but it looked wonderful.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms in the castle give you a chance to relax in beautiful surroundings and were quiet.

Got a deal to stay at Kilronan Castle and it certainly lived up to its good name, the castle stands very imposing on beautiful grounds beside a lake. Our room was large and fabulous we asked for a twin and got 2 large double beds in an enormous room with a great big bathroom (fab for us ladies). Dinner in the restaurant was a little expensive about €30.00 for a main course so we decided to eat in the bar its called the drawing room. The menu was limited but everything we had was absolutely delicious especially the steak €20.00 and the warm goats cheese tart yum! There was a good wine selection. The decor is all very stately and castle like with dark wooden panels and beautiful artwork. The leisure center was good although the water in the Jacuzzi was slightly cool!. We used the spa as well and this was great. Above all the staff were extremely friendly, polite and helpful. We went for some great walks in the grounds all clearly marked out. The only very minor criticism that we would have was that there was no water in the rooms (even a bottle of tap water would of been great) or no biscuits with the tea and coffee facilities other that that we would highly recommend Kilronan Castle and we will most definitely be back.!

Just back from a weekend at this hotel where we really enjoyed our time there. The rooms were beautiful , very comfortable and exceptionally clean. The bathroom was great, good showers and good ventilation. Dinner was a great experience, it was excellent! The breakfast was beautiful, really relaxed and in lovely surroundings. Would definitely go back there. Nice bar too
The Spa. Booked a manicure and pedicure. This was done in a room in a busy hallway leading to the leisure centre. as it was glass we could be seen by all. I was not impressed at all with the manicure and pedicure I would even say that it was one of the worst I have ever had. On top of that we were charged €15 to go into the thermal suite after paying €90 for the manicure and pedicure. The thermal suite was lovely and it was in these treatment rooms I would have expected to have had my treatments. If I return I will not be booking treatments . Overall the hotel and the staff were lovely.

Room Tip: Look for one away from where they recycle the bottles, wedding on Saturday and during the night they...

My wife and visited this lovely old world hotel back in the depth of winter and it was a super weekend stay awY from it all. Based in the Heart of the country you are able to totally chill away from it all.
The reception is a beautiful grand old room that makes you feel like you have arrived at somewhere important yet very relaxed.
The rooms were simply decorated and suited the overall look and feel of the hotel and a king size bed that was a dream to sleep in.
We ate in the main restaurant one of the nights and we have to say that it was a treat sitting in the old room been waited on hand and foot, super service and food to match.
If your looking for an old world treat visit this old castle in the middle of the country.
Well done all the staff keep it up. Thanks for a lovely weekend.
