Conveniently located for a nearby event myself and 2 friends were attending, Kilbree House served its purpose of giving us somewhere clean to rest our heads. But at 70Euros per head (yes, that's right, 210Euros for a triple room for the night!), we were absolutely gobsmacked, and a little disappointed we hadn't checked into the full service 5-star hotel suite down the road!
3 of us shared a room, and surprisingly, had to make do with a double and a single bed (rather than 3 beds as expected). The place was ghastly outdated (floral tiles and a maroon toilet bowl!), and did not at all give the friendly warm welcome feeling that your average B&B would provide. The breakfast was VERY basic: cereal and an apparently microwaved hot breakfast (or toasted cheese sandwhich if you chose). A far cry from the buffets of fresh fruit, juice and cheese boards you would be offered elsewhere.
We questioned the rate, as normally a discount would be offered for a triple room (particularly given we didn't even have our own beds each). The owner seemed unphased and thought it perfectly normal to charge 210 euro for a room. We, I guess, have ourselves to blame for not clarifying the cost upon booking, as we had booked several rooms (the others were double rooms, and quoted as 140 per room).
Take my word - there are far better places to stay!
