My sister and I decided to book a hotel near the airort at the end of our trip to Ireland, so we could catch an early flight out the next morning. We made a great choice! Kettles exceeded our expectations in every way!

The place was immaculate from top to bottom. The rooms were well appointed and the beds were comfortable. Reception was great -- and very helpful. Deserving special mention were Kiera and Meghan at the reception desk and Sylvia, who was our waitress in the restaurant for both lunch and dinner. Overall service was excellent.

This was our best bargain in all of Ireland, insamuch as it cost us only 39 Euros a night for each of our rooms.

Everything went very smoothly from arrival to departure. We are happy to recommend this hotel and would definitely return again..

Anyone travelling from Dublin airport or looking a quiet night away, this is def the place. My family and I stayed the night before flying to Orlando.

The welcome was warm, the room was great and the food wasnt bad either, if you dont mind a bit of a wait. It was just what we wanted. The cost of carparking at the airport for 3 weeks is 117 euro, the cost of staying in Kettles is 99 euro for two adults and two children, b & b, carparking for three weeks and tranfers to and from the airport. The staff are amazing and do look after all the guests from the tallest to the smallest, even the noisey ones are tollerated.

Many thanks to everyone and hope to see you all again.

Hi to all,we stayed here on a few occasions over the years as I would live near to this hotel.I have been there for many an evening occasion always great and for big celebrations such as confirmations and my wedding.The hotel staff/management are 100% genuine especially Audrey (wedding planner),no problem to big or small,professional and such a beautiful hotel,it is immaculate and food was fab,try roast beef and yorkshire pudding followed by french vacherin for dessert,everyone was impressed with the food & drink.Function room is great its beautiful.As for the rooms they are eqally great,clean and really nicely presented and the bridal suite is stunning,really sumptious and huge,like a luxury apartment its an absolute credit to the hotel.Overall Kettles Country House summed up my wedding day perfectly and would definitely recommend a night or 2 stay and you wont be disappointed if you choose this as your wedding venue.Genuine family run hotel.Keep up the good work.

My best friend is getting married in Kettles over the Christmas and she was adamant about not wanting a hens and being made a show of so we decided a few of us girls would head to Kettles for dinner and drinks just to mark the occassion. I phoned in advance to reserve a table and I was put through to the wedding coordinator (think her name was Audrey). Very nice girl, ended up giving us really good deal on rooms so we booked in for the night. Ah it was great fun, place is lovely, we got to see the bridal suite and reception room, omg its fab. The restaurant wasn't opened so we ate in the lounge which was great craic. There was a one man band on who wasn't best to start and dont know if he improved or if it was the drinks but he sure got the place rockin in the end. There was just a great atmosphere in the place, everyone seemed to know each other. We'd a really nice time and Debbie had a ball which was what was most important. I cant wait for the wedding now, it will be such a great session. A defo thumbs up if anyone was thinking of staying here.

We stayed at this hotel following a family wedding. The staff were very efficient, friendly and helpful. The food served at the wedding was lovely and the breakfast next morning was equally nice. Our bedroom was large with a double and a single bed. The bathroom was a good size and was nice. The only criticism would be the very tiny space to hang your clothes up. Other than that i would definitely recommend this hotel.

Have stayed in this hotel for a few nights now and have to say was really disappointed. I have never encountered so many problems in one place - no wifi as advertised, radiators not working in the bedrooms so storage heaters used instead, telephones not working in bedroom, taps coming off the sink, remote control not working, the list goes on. The hotel on the surface looks really nice - but the basics have gone by the wayside. Shame as the staff on reception were very helpful but obviously covering tracks of poor upkeeping and maintenaince . Overall, a stressful experience as was wondering what would happen next!!
