Enjoyed a family break for 5 days in the Gleneagle. From the minute we checked in staff were friendly and extremly helpfull. For a busy hotel everything runs smoothly, no delays at breakfast time and no problems for dinner. Our kids were kept entertained with the eager eagles club and loved the captain jack show, good fun for mums and dads too. The rooms could do with air conditioning and better sound proofing between the rooms. Having said that the kids were so tired at the end of every day they had no problem getting off to sleep.
The big plus for this hotel is the excellent staff. Fantastic for a familly holliday if you have young children like we do.

The Gleneagle is a large hotel at the edge of the town but still within easy walking distance of the town centre.
The rooms are decent enough, nothing wrong with them but nothing spectacular. Where this hotel really shines is in the entertainment. I brought my mother on a midweek break and she absolutely loved the nightly shows on in the ballroom. Not my personal cup of tea though.
We didn't have any children with us but I think it would be recommended as from what we saw and heard of the kids club they were all having a great time.

Was one of a coach party of 40+ for August Bank holiday 2013. The ease of checkin and getting to rooms late afternoon after travelling from London for almost 24hours - no problems all smoothly done and such helpful and friendly staff - seemed so glad to see us. Enjoyed the leisure facilities, mainly the jacuzzi and sauna, the pool for me was "too crowded" with children - not a criticism as a lot of the guests were families! Rooms comfortable and the food was amazing with a lot of choice. Entertainment was very good, only managed one night, being tired out after the days' tours. Hotel situated in a busy main road across from fields and the background of the fabulous Mcgillacuddy Reeks with its mists which according to locals foretells the weather. Not far away the National Park also trips in the jaunting cars. A thoroughly all round pleasant family run hotel where service was excellent from the staff - hosekeeping, reception and restaurant .I would be pleased to return and reccommend this 3* which felt like a 4*.

Room Tip: Rooms on northside (L-shape) looked onto small garden with fountain also the walkway to the leisure...

Decided to plan an extended family holiday in the Gleneagle..perfect choice. We stayed in the apartments close by parents stayed in the hotel.
Apartments very spacious and well serviced. Hotel rooms a little dated but sufficient.
Kids club very good our kids 6 and 4 loved it the leaders were very attentive and considerate.
parents enjoyed the evening entertainment. perfect location and great mountain views.
Only gripe was the bar food really thought it was poor quality rest of the hotel food restaurant and breakfast were good.
Would recommend with young children and varied aged groups.

Room Tip: ask for mountain views

Although we did not stay in the glen eagles, we stayed nxt door in the Brehon hotel and had full use of the swimming pool and kids club within the eagles.
Our one son age 7 which is totally past the kiddy club thing, but absolutely loved the TEEN ZONE & the EAGER EAGLES with special thanks to all the activity staff especially Samantha.
Hotel was filled with families & older people, just a perfect rest before we hit school nxt week :-)
