Friendly service. Free parking (indoor!). Leisure: fully-equipped gym room, in-door swimming pool, sauna... Breakfast: plenty of choice, both salty and sweet. Rooms: big family room, modern decoration. Bathroom: brand new. Location: not far (85 km) from Dublin, ideally if you are taking a flight the day after, for example. In short, very good cost/value ratio!

This hotel is lovely. Food is absolutely amazing everything we got was lovely and reasonably priced. Rooms are OK. Ours wasn't too fancy very basic. The one thing that did annoy me was the curtains when we closed them were all ripped and worn which bothered me. Good comfortable bed

perfect for family of 4 that needed a place to stay that was within an hours drive to Dublin. The hotel had a nice bar/restaurant that had really good food for a reasonable price. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and accommodating.

We have just returned from a 2 night family break in the Killeshin. We booked it out of convenience, not too far to drive, the website looked good and there is a pool. Most of the other guests seemed to be attending conferences in the hotel, which meant the pool was lovely and quiet, not many other families. The pool... More

Stayed for girly weekend recently and had a lovely stay. Nice big rooms, friendly staff and good food at the bar. Also nice to have pool etc available. A little outside town so you need a taxi to get in but not a big issue..enjoyed the stay.
