Reviewed September 16, 2012

Just returned from a 3 night break in Kellys.
This was our first visit and we were not disappointed in any way. The drive down from the North was an easy 4 hour excursion on very good roads - much more relaxing than booking in for a flight.
All the staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble - sometimes when you prepay service charges you feel short changed because of lack of service - not so here.
Our room was located at the rear of the hotel (not sea facing) and while we were a little disappoimted we soon realised that we had the sun all afternoon and for us it was a good decision.
THe highlight of the holiday was undoubtedly the main dining room where each night we received the best hotel food ever. The imagination of the chefs and the wonderful tastes were on a par with the best restaurants we have experienced. Breakfasts were not that far behind.
The personal touch by the owner, Bill Kelly, was much appreciated.
I would have no problem in recommending this hotel and DV we hope to return.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear have the evening sun.

We have just returned from our September week at this lovely hotel. We are always made feel welcome from arriving at reception, through all staff in dining room, bars, spa, bedrooms and leisure area. Full marks for always managing to have such friendly, helpful staff. Food terrific and wine choice is extensive and fairly priced. Great experience, looking forward to our next visit.

I stayed for 3 nights in Kellys. It was a magical experience. All the staff were so friendly and accomadating, a special word for the head waiter Pat. The dinner each night was brilliant with a different menu each evening. Room was a little on the small size but clean and with all facilities. Breakfast and lunch of the highest quality. I will certainly be back again. Thank you Kellys.

Room Tip: Save your appetite for the dinner menu.

I don't understand all the fuss surrounding this hotel. Sure, it has some fine points - lovely beach, helpful staff, nice pool / gym; BUT its hugely expensive and the rooms are OK at best. I gave it four stars as the rest of my family absolutely love the place. My wife thinks the food is delicious, and the kids love the kids club, mini golf, pool etc. We will be back next year no doubt, but I'm the only one not looking forward to it.

Dear 16024,

We are delighted your family enjoyed the facilities, food and more importantly that my team looked after you well during your recent stay. I regret that Kelly's doesn't seem to tick all your personal boxes. I would appreciate if you could let me know what room you stayed in, we do have many different types and styles of family rooms.

I would like to think we offer good value for money for the product offering, unlike most hotels it is a very inclusive package that we offer at Kelly's with lots of extra facilities and activities, from all meals to complimentary tea/coffees, afternoon tea, aerobic classes, golf lessons etc

I look foward to hearing from you and welcoming you back again in 2013.

Kind regards
Bill Kelly

Had a family meal here, two adults, two kids, ten and eight. Food was great, service excellent and to be honest, while it is not cheap, it is well worth it. My wife had a rib eye steak with gratin dauphinois with cafe de paris butter, it was 14.95 which is very reasonable for such a nice plate of food. Very nice kids menu, even did a small portion of crab claws for one of the kids even though they were not on the kids menu. Overall we were very happy with our experience. Would have no hesitation returning.

Our fourth stay at this lovely hotel. Our irish cousins recommended the hotel and we have returned with them each July for the past 4 years. There are many other returning guests so I think that it says it all. Excellent food and service in the bar & restuarant, clean comfortable rooms, lovely location right on the beach, spacious public rooms overflowing with works of art plus extensive sporting facilities including a great leisure club. We are already planning our next trip.

We had a wonderful holiday in Kellys, I went with the kids and my in laws from australia and it was amazing. The food was delicious. The location on the beach is stunning. The service was top notch and very welcoming, especially Tracy the activities coordinator, who was so welcoming to everyone and created a really friendly fun atmosphere at all the activities from Tennis to croquet. She made our holiday really special. Enter the activities, you get cool prizes and meet some lovely people.
The tennis coach clyde was brilliant, we got tennis lessons every second day and improved a lot.
All in all a fantastic holiday.
