After the marvelous dinners we had good sleep in the silent rooms. This was a really nice hotel for us golfers with good golf experience from the owner and his wife. The personel was nice and friendly and some of them we will remember for a long time.

Hi Per and thank you so much for the wonderful review here on Trip Advisor - we really do appreciate it

It was a pleasure to look after you all here in the Killeen House last week, and we're delighted that even the weather co-operated over the few days

Now that you have experienced the difference between Irish and Swedish Golf courses, we hope that you will become regulars here every year!

Keep well Per, thank you again for the review and best regards to all the guys. Michael & Geraldine

It has been a few years since I last reviewed this Emerald Isle Gem. Given the economic issues that have beset Ireland as well as the rest of the world, you might expect some properties to show evidence of decline. No so with Killeen House. My wife and I stayed 3 nights during or recent trip. The cleanliness, service, and hospitality retain as high a standard as ever and Michael and Geraldine continue to provide not only extensive travel assistance, but a true feeling of welcome. As for specifics, although the standard rooms are more than adequate, I recommend opting for a Championship room, they are beautifully appointed and spacious. The grounds and gardens are delightful and on a fine late afternoon, I recommend a glass of wine at the gazebo, beautiful views of the peaks. But above all, don't pass up dinner, you will miss one of the finest dining experiences in Ireland. In short, Killeen House has retained it's place as one of the best.

Room Tip: Championship room, 2nd floor corner, quiet and jacuzzi tub

Hi Lou and thanks a million for the sparkling review (your second one over the years) here on Trip Advisor - we really do appreciate it

You and Pat are part of what makes the Killeen House the type of place that it is. At least 75 or so percent of all of our guests are just like you guys, as in either repeat or else direct referral from past guests

And we're delighted that even after 18 (yes, EIGHTEEN!!) visits to Ireland, that you still manage to fine new stuff to delight and entertain you.....

Keep well and all the best to all our friends in PA. Until trip # 19....... Michael & Geraldine

The Killeen house is home away from home. I've never had a more relaxing stay at a hotel or resort.

You can rant all you want about the pool, the spa, the food, the location, etc.
What travelers really want is to feel welcome.
We see it all the time. Maybe a request for a late check out and clerk doesn't have authority to approve. Maybe the laundry wasn't quite right yet the laundry people have left for the day....

Micheal and Geraldine's warm welcoming attitude permiates throughout the staff.

Can't wait to visit again!!!

Hi Scott and thanks a million for the stellar review here on Trip Advisor - we really appreciate your going to the time and trouble to write it and post it up

Thank you especially for pointing out what we all feel here in the Killeen House, and that is that it's the people rather than the physical building that really matters in any Hotel (But we're probably just saying that because we don't have spas, pools, gyms, suites and all that kind of stuff!!!)

Our philosophy is very simple - treat every single guest the way we would like to be treated if we were in their shoes. Rocket science it isn't, but thankfully it seems to work for us pretty well....

Thanks again so much, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Killeen House at some future stage

All the best to all the boys. Michael & Geraldine

Killeen House is the perfect spot to stay for a golf outing in southern Ireland. We booked our entire trip through the hotel including wonderful rooms, tee times at all the best courses and minibus with driver. I was entirely satisfied with every aspect of their arrangements and would confidently recommend the hotel, its restaurant and staff.

Additionally, you cannot talk about the Killeen House without at least mentioning their pub. This little "gem" of a pub became the social center of the property for our golf group as well as others staying at the hotel. It was here that, with the help of a few "family sized" Irish whiskeys, we got to know everyone...like one big, happy family.

Hope to return someday.

Hi and thank you so much for the great review here on Trip Advisor - we're really grateful to you for it

It was a pleasure to look after your group recently and we're delighted that it all went off so well for you all - even the weather more or less co-operated!

For sure, our courses over here are a small little bit different to what you enjoy in Orlando, and we hope you weren't too beaten up by the likes of Waterville, Tralee and Ballybunion!

Thanks again for the great review, and now you know where we are if ever you're coming this way again....

All the best to everyone. Michael & Geraldine

We had the pleasure of spending 4 nights at the Killeen House near Killarney in September of 2012. I was on a golf trip (arrangements facilitated by owner Michael) and it really couldn't have been better. The rooms & bathrooms are generous and especially well-equipped for European standards and the beds and bedding was great. Owner Geraldine (Michael's wife) runs an efficient and very pleasant staff and the food is exceptional- definitely plan at least one evening meal there. The pub is small, maybe too small, but friendly and definitely a good place to have a night cap and good conversation.

This was my second trip to Southern Ireland and I have to admit, my finest. The first trip was with my wife and another couple. We stayed a couple of nights at several locations in Ireland and truly had a marvelous vacation. The one place that stuck in my memories of our vacation that year was our stay at the Killeen House Hotel. The Killeen House might be a small hotel but it had the most comfortable rooms, a fabulous restaurant, the most unique bar than any hotel I've stayed at in Ireland and in a lot of cases, in the world. All that being said, I have to admit the biggest asset of the hotel are it's owners/hosts. Michael and Geraldine Posney are unparalleled in their service and willingness to assist in whatever it takes to provide a memorable experience in Ireland.
My second trip was a golfing trip with seven of my best friends. Nothing against the wives but this was a "guy" thing and we did nothing but eat, sleep and play golf. In the plannig stages I determined that we would use the Killeen House as home base and didn't have to worry about packing and unpacking every day. It was fabulous and the smartest decision we made regarding the whole trip. Michael and Geraldine made sure we had tee times and caddies for all six rounds of golf, motor coach service to transport all eight of us, with golf clubs and luggage, from the time we arrived at Shannon Airport until we were returned to the airport for our trip home. The trip would not have been nearly as successful without the Killeen House Hotel and it's brilliant owners/hosts. Thanks Michael and especially Geraldine.

Hi Philip and thanks a million for the sparkling review - we are really and truly grateful to you for posting it up here on Trip Advisor

The absolute best compliment a place like ours can possibly get is when people choose to come back to you again, which you did, and especially with a different group from the first time. Because then, what you are essentially doing is giving us the loan of your reputation among you friends, and trusting that we will deliver on what you have promised.

Thank you for trusting us and we're delighted that we lived up to your faith in us....

It was a true pleasure to look after you all and one we hope to repeat again in years ahead

Thanks again Philip and all the best to everyone. Michael & Geraldine

My first trip to Ireland was such a fabulous one due much to the experience I had with my sister, Kathy, and good friend, Deirdre, at the Killeen House. Michael and Geraldine were absolutely spectacular with their warm and generous spirit of hospitality. Personally, I have never encoutered a bed and breakfast that had it all like the Killeen House. We later stayed at a castle built in the 1200's and I would rather go back to Michael and Geraldine's Killeen House than stay in the castle again - and I do want to add that the castle was superb. Staying in the Killeen House was like being with old friends that you hated to leave. They take care of all your needs - from where to go and how to get there, to making sure you have the best food and service you could possibly receive anywhere.

Damien, one of our greeters and waiters, and all around accomodation person at the house, is one of the nicest young men I have met. He has the charm, wit, and finese of someone twice his age. Loved him!

Gavin, Marguerite and Ciari (misspelled) were just additional wonderful people. You must have to be extraordinarily terrific to work here! They are excellent at what they do.

I will tell everyone I know to go to Killarney and stay at the Killeen house if you want the very best of hospitality, food, service, and accomodations. Love you guys!!!!!!!!! Betty Furmanick
