“The Best Experience”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

This was my second time staying at the Killeen House, the first being 9 years ago. Our experience this time was as grand as the first, an indication that the level of service is ingrained and constant.

DermotMB captured it brilliantly; the Killen House does everything just a little bit better. From the moment you walk in and are greeted by either Michael or Geraldine to the moment you leave you feel as if your enjoyment and comfort is the most important thing in their day.

The entire staff is friendly and more than competent, able to answer any question or fill any need at any time of the day, and this includes well into the night.

Their pub is comfortable and filled with great guests, a lot of laughter and some very cold pints. And as the website says, closing time is November. If you are a golfer looking to either boast or commiserate about the day's round of golf this is the place.

The restaurant Rozzers is fantastic, starting with the full breakfast right through the dinners with a wonderful variety of food, all very high quality and expertly prepared. We ate in the restaurant three out of the four nights were in Ireland and will do the same when we return.

I do not have a thing I would change about either of my experiences at this wonderful B&B and it was an integral piece of the success of our trip to Ireland.

Thank you very much for the stupendous review here on Trip Advisor Rich - we really appreciate it.

It was an absolute pleasure to look after your group and it was especially nice that you were one of our many repeat guests - although you certainly took your time about coming back.....! Nine years in between visits - was it something Michael said???

We are very conscious that when individuals such as yourself put a group together and bring them to the Killeen House, that you are also giving us a loan of the reputation you have among these people. They are trusting you to make the right decisions for them and then in turn you are trusting us here in the Killeen House to deliver on what you have promised. That can soemtimes be a tall order, but there is a fantastic sense of personal and job satisfaction when we satisfy everyone!

Thanks again Rich - and please don't wait another nine years before once more darkening our doorstep again!

All the best to everyone - especially Tommy who we expect will be a scratch golfer before too much longer......!

We stayed at Killeen House for 4 or 5 nights. The weather was awful but the hospitality and the venue were warm. We arrived late, tired and stressed (in the dark and in the rain) the first night as the GPS Coordinates we had been given (by others, not Killeen) led us up the "garden path" (in this case a golf course path). Very quickly Gavin had us settled into our room and something helpful from the bar to settle our nerves. The room was pleasant with views across the countryside, the lounge, bar and dining room were were first class but with a homey, friendly, welcoming feel (not chintzy nor too cool or funky). The chef and food suppliers are as strong as the hosts Michael and Geraldine.

Hi guys and thanks a million for the great review here on Trip Advisor - we really appreciate it.

It's a pity that you're not here now though, because the sun is splitting the rocks and melting the tarmac all over the country! It's just an amazing contrast to the miserable and rotten weather you had over your four nights with us last month....

Glad though tnat overall you had a great time on your trip and we hope you're now safely home in Australia, laden down with many happy memories of a wonderful holiday.

Thanks again and all the very best to you both.

This was a beautiful little traditional hotel around five to six minutes drive from Killarney centre.The grounds were immaculate and there were lovely little Irish themes around the garden such as a typical Irish wether station.

The staff were very friendly and helpful without exception. The rooms were of a very good size and were comfortable and clean. Breakfasts were tasty including kippers, fish, continental and traditional English/Irish food.

It was a lovely experience to drive home after a lively night in a typical Irish pub with live music to this beautiful setting. The price was on the high side in comparison with other similar hotels that were closer to town but this was only a small constructive criticism.

Hi Maree and thank you very much for your super review here on Trip Advisor - we really do appreciate it.

We're delighted that you enjoyed your time with us and that we were able to add to your store of happy memories for the Irish leg of your holiday experience.

We hear you loud and clear about prices Maree and we are constantly offering the best prices we can for our guests, while at the same time trying to ensure we don't end up with big losses at season's end (as we did in spades for three of the last four years....)

The fact of the matter is that there is nothing cheap for anyone in any sector of the Irish economy and all business' are constantly walking a very thin line between survival and extinction

However all this stuff is of no concern of people like you Maree and it's down to people like us to look after you as well as we can and hopefully send you home smiling!

Thanks again for the great review and all the best.

If the difference between being very good and excellent is doing everything fractionally better than everybody else so that all the fractional differences add up to something very significant then Killeen House is truly excellent.

From the warmth of the welcome to the final goodbye the whole experience was amazing - the excellence of the food, the beautiful bedrooms, the friendly welcoming service - Michael, Geraldine and all the team make it all look easy and enjoyable.

True Exellence.

Wow Brendan.....!

We wouldn't even know how to adequately respond to such a truly outstanding review.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write it and post it up here on Trip Advisor.

We have always pursued a policy of under-promising and over-delivering here in the Killeen House, and the only problem with reviews such as yours is that it makes it impossible for us to keep our policy in place, because you are so incredibly lavish in your praise and comments!

But we love them anyway and sincerely thank you for them!

We look forward to welcoming Mary and yourself back to the Killeen House in the not too distant future - hopefully before the sun sets on our 2013 season.

All the best.

It was a pleasure to look after you all and we hope you weren't too badly physically and psychologically beaten up by the "big boy" golf courses you played over here in God's Own Country....!

Stayed early June - Everything was delightful: we arrived tired after a long days drive. We were warmly welcomed (including our little dog). Food superb, good size bedroom, interesting bar, genuinely friendly staff. We felt immediatley relaxed and had a fabulous two day stay. A big thank you to Michael, Geraldine, Louise and all the staff (especially at breakfast table) and of course the Master Chef!
We look forward to returning avec le chien.

The charm and character of this placed are unmatched. Pictures don't do it justice. The staff are extremely welcoming and make you feel right at home. We arrived after a very long, rainy day to fresh banana bread and coffee -- it hit the spot! The room was comfortable and inviting (perfect for an afternoon nap). My husband and I ate dinner at the hotel's restaurant. For lack of a better word, the food gave my husband and I foodgasms. The salmon was the best salmon I have ever had -- maybe the best meal I've ever had. The goat cheese appetizer was also out of this world good. After dinner, we went to see a breathtaking view (about a 10 minute walk away). Although it was raining (an Irish mist, as the staff would say), the view made you want to cry. We went horseback riding the next morning (a must-do). All in all, the Killeen House was perfect. I'm not really sure how someone could write a bad review about this place.

What a wonderful review and thank you so much for taking the time to write it all and post it up here on Trip Advisor - we are very grateful to you.

And thank you for introducing us to a brand new word - Foodgasm!!!

Now we maybe finally understand why so many of our guests walk out of Rozzers restaurant with a particular type of smile on their faces.....!

It was a pleasure to serve you both and we hope you returned home to PA laden down with an abundance of happy Irish memories.

Thank you again - and please feel free to tell all your friends about us.....!
