I went for a long weekend break with my wife and two young kids. We found this hotel ticks all the boxes for anyone looking for the perfect family break. The hotel itself is located in a lovely area with excellent views with plenty of things to do for all the family. The hotel rooms are very spacious and clean and the staff are very helpful.
We had breakfast each morning as well as an evening meal and we found the food to be excellent and of a very high standard. Would certainly plan to return.
The hotel also offered free wifi access in the loby which was also a good feature.

We had heard the location was lovely, a mile from town and on the edge of the national park. It really exceeded expectations - there are lots of lovely short walks in the park you can do from the hotel, which we did every evening before dinner. You can take a path through the park into the twon - takes about 30 mins and is very pretty, though a bit muddy in parts.

Food was lovely, honest hearty food. We ate there most days, and the breakfast was one of the best I've had in any hotel - really set us up for the day.

Staff in the hotel were very friendly, very obliging. They all seemed to have worked there for a while so were very relaxed and knew a lot about the area and the best things to see and do. One of the receptionists really went out of her way for me when I ran out of contact lens solution - giving me hers to use!

The bar was fine - a bit quiet, but as the view was so nice it was a nice place to finish off the evening.

We didn't use the leisure centre, but my husband played the golf course and found it very pleasant.

Lots of families staying, so the place felt lively - there seemed to be a lot of activites put on for them (we're in our fifties so didn't partake!).

Hotel rooms were very comforatble, lovely beds - we didn't have a view so would request one when I go back.

All in all a really relaxing hotel to come back to after a days sightseeing or golfing.

Dear Guest,

It was lovely to hear that you enjoyed your trip to Ireland and Killarney.

We set our standards high here in the hotel and aim to appeal to a variety of age groups including families and over 50’s.

On your next visit, you may like to consider our Golden Years program, it is specifically designed with the Over 50's in mind and features an excellent package with golf, aqua aerobics, sightseeing, drinks, entertainment and much more for an exceptional price. The program runs in the Spring and Autumn and details are on our website.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Killarney and the Castlerosse again in the near future,

Kind Regards,

Triona Hickey

We had 2 golf lodges at the end of May prior to family wedding in Ireland. This was a great choice for our varied age range. The energetic could walk to Killarney, the pool was great for the children and the breakfast was the best value in Ireland in lovely setting overlooking the lake. Rooms in lodges are very spacious and staff helpful. We had a slight problem with fridge and it was changed immediately. Ireland is expensive and we thought this good value. Good location for touring, would use this hotel again

Stayed at the Castlerosse for one night only over the June Bank Holiday weekend. Got an excellent deal by ringing the hotel a few days beforehand. The best value for money I could find in Killarney. The views from the hotel are spectacular. This is a great location for a family break away. Bike rental available as well as lovely walks alongside the lake. Really safe for young children with a lovely playground and tennis/basketball court. Kids Club also available. Buffet breakfast was lovely. The only complaint I could make is that the bar menu from 5pm to 8 pm. is a little limited. Would have no hesitation in recommending the Castlerosse and will definitely go back.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your positive response to the Castlerosse Hotel.

I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that we exceeded your expectations.

I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the bar menu selection. As we have a comprehensive menu in the hotel restaurant, our bar menu is not as extensive as bar menus are in many other hotels, we do, however, feel there is something to suit everyone on the menu.

We feel privileged that the hotel is in such a beautiful location and are delighted that you took advantage of this by walking and cycling through the park and enjoyed the view from the hotel.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Castlerosse soon,

Kind Regards,

Triona Hickey
