Called for diner on the way back from Galway. Got looked up and down like we were not good enough. No reasonably priced options on the menu. Wait for food was 40 minutes and when it came the chips would have broke your teeth. Clearly had been re-cooked and re-cooked.Staff rolled their eyes at each other every time someone walked in and pointed, whispered and giggled behind several diners backs. Never felt so unwelcome and uncomfortable. Only stayed because we thought food would have been worth waiting for. The toilets were also very dirty. Didn't stay and never will.

Stayed in this hotel over the Christmas. It was a lovely hotel and staff very helpful and pleasant. Reception girls were very nice. Rooms were warm and comfortable and food was very tasty. Will be back again soon. Looking forward to it.

★★★★★Thank you so much to all in the Hotel Kilmore for an unforgetable day this day last week...just wish we could do it all over again. The welcome on arrival was lovely & seeing the hotel decorated so festive added to the ambience. The reception room was perfect (I love the fact there is 3 different levels which means no one has a bad table) The food was outstanding...for starter we chose brie with a rich port & cranberry sauce followed by Creamy pumpkin soup with smoked bacon & a parmesan croûton. Main course we had a choice of sirloin steak or chicken wrapped in bacon served with stuffing & a pink champagne & basil cream served with vegetables that our guests were also blown away with especially the spiced red cabbage & creamy garlic potatoes. Dessert was Apple & Cinnamon Crumble or Chocolate & Orange Torte. From start to finish the food was excellent...even breakfast in bed the next morning was beautiful. If you are looking at this hotel & in doubt whether to go with it...just do it I can safely say you will not regret it.

Attended a wedding here in late December. The reception area was very festive, the room comfortable and staff pleasant. Bar prices were high - maybe because of the "captive audience" i.e the large crowd there for the wedding reception??? Had to check my change twice! Food was good and the service excellent. Breakfast was the usual - hot and plentful. Would return there again.

Booked in after recommendation from work colleague.
The rooms are very clean and modern, the beds very comfortable and the free wifi works very well.
We ate in the bar, and have to say a great steak served by friendly staff.
If you are in the area for business or pleasure I highly recommend you stay here.
I know I will be the next time I'm in the area.

This review relates purely to the food served in the bar area.

Visited with family plus parents on a Monday night.

Quiet, efficient service. Choice of food available was very good, a wide range. I ended up choosing a beef fajita, with onion rings and French fries as side orders. Portions were huge. Must say though that the fajita lacked much in the way of spiciness or strong flavour, it was pretty workmanlike. Nothing to write home about. My wife quite enjoyed the burger and fries on offer though.

Eating out in Cavan is not easy due to the severe shortage of 'quality' dining establishments. This venue is one of a very small shortlist of places there that I would say is ok to try out, just don't set your expectations sky high.

I had my wedding reception here in 2008 and it was amazing! The food is out of this world, no one went home hungry. The staff were great and as we live in England a lot of trust was put upon the hotel to deliver and they delivered! they were very very good if your thinking of having your wedding reception here DO IT! we come back every year since our wedding day for dinner there and it just gets better and better ( we see my family too). Its very well located on the Dublin road and is easy to find, loads of parking and lovely rooms Cavan is an amazing county and this hotel makes it perfect.
