“Super Stay in Every Way!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for a week and have nothing but praise for this hotel and the
people who manage it and all the staff who work there. The pictures on this site do not do it justice.
We stayed in two different rooms as we got upgraded in the midst of our stay. Both rooms were
very tastefully decorated and comfortable in every way. The restaurant is superb. The lounge
area and outdoors very inviting. The owners were extremely helpful with plans for our daily
travel no matter our interests. A stay here is a treat in every way. My husband and I are world
travelers with a son in the hospitality business. We had a wonderful stay so I write this with some
understanding of what it takes to run a very special hotel.

Hi Janet and a million thanks for the fantastic review - it was very thoughtful and kind of you to write it and post it up here on Trip Advisor.

It was a thorough pleasure to look after you all for the week here in the Killeen House and we're delighted that everything went off so well for you, and especially that the weather co-operated so well with you on the golfing days.

Now that you have discovered us (thank you Bill M!) we hope we'll have the opportunity to welcome you back to God's Own Country at some future stage - after all, there's a course or two left in the area yet to be enjoyed and conquered!

Thanks again Janet and all the best to the other three muskateers!

"Honey I'm Home"
This was my 4th stay with the Killeen House and as usuall Geraldine,Michael and Staff could not have been more hospitable. My family and friends think I should buy the place since I talk so much about it and always have to stay here when in Ireland.From the moment I pull in that driveway a sence of happiness and relaxation takes over. On this trip we had 15 Golfing buddies
to keep in line,but Geraldine,just like our mothers,had no problem checking us in,helping other quests, getting our food orders and getting all seated in an orderly fashion.
The Food is SUBERB and would compare to any of your favorite places!

Room Tip: I have stayed in a different room every trip and they all are very nice. Some rooms are bigger than...

What a wonderful review - thank you...thank you...thank you...!!!

the absolute best compliment that a place like ours can get is when a guest comes back to us again. And the next best compliment is when a guest refers us to friends. So a multiple repeater and a multiple referrer just like you is as important to us and as appreciated as any guest possibly can be - again, thank you!

It was a pleasure to look after you all and to welcome back a few familiar faces, topped up with a few new faces.

And we're delighted that the whole trip went off so well for everyone, with even the weather playing it's part for a change!

As for your very interesting comment about buying the place - why not have a chat with Ken and the boys, and then come together and make us the proverbial offer we can't refuse!! Michael and (MOM) Geraldine would love to hear from you!!!

Thanks again and all the best to the nicest bunch of Boston Boys that we know!

This is a sweet place, caters especially to the golfing crowd. The hosts could not have been nicer or more friendly
Reputation is based in large part on the kitchen, among the best you'll find in Ireland. Fine dining dinners and excellent breakfasts. Killeen House especially suitable for couples, as flowery decor meant to please women guests more than men. Not the place for a bunch of guys playing 36 a day, but ideal for slightly older crowd.

Hi SC and sincere thanks for the overall great review of your recent stay with us here in the Killeen House - we truly appreciate it.

We're delighted that you enjoyed the visit and thank you especially for highlighting the food part of our operation, which is an area we take special pride in running to the highest level we possibly can.

But unless an awful lot of guys have told us an awful lots of little white lies over the last twenty years, you're wrong to say that we're not the place for a bunch of guys golfing on the magnificent golf courses of the Southwest of Ireland....!

This year, golf guests will probably account for about 40 percent of all of our business in the Killeen House. Of that 40 percent, at least 80 percent of them are groups of four or eight guys over in Ireland on what Geraldine calls 'male bonding breaks'!! And thankfully many of tyhem are either repeat guests, or else referrals from past guests.

You're right about the age profile though - the clear majority of all of our guests would tend to be a little bit north of their mid thirties! But much younger people also thankfully seem to have a great time with us too.

Regardless, in our experience and no matter who are guests are, it's all about friendliness, food and good water pressure in the showers.... If we can manage to get those three things consistently right, then we feel that we will be able to properly look after all of our guests.

Thanks again for the review and we hope you have arrived safely home with an abundance of happy memories fo your recent Irish holiday experience.

All the best.

We were lucky enough to spend a night in the Killeen House Hotel last week and are looking forward to going back. The welcome, food, bar and bedroom were all first class. We felt like we were old friends returning rather than first timers to the place and Michael, Geraldine and staff really know how to make you feel comfortable and the restaurant serves food at a very high level. This year we have stayed at the Muckross Park and the Killarney Plaza and last year at the Aghadoe Heights Hotel and we will be going back to the Killeen House when down again. Really great place and a deserves all the credit it gets. A romantic spot - you wont be disappointed.

Hi Des and sincere thanks for the sparkling review here on Trip Advisor - we're really grateful to you for going to the trouble of writing and posting it up.

It was a pleasure to look after you both and we are honoured that you compared us so favorably with our more famous and fancy friends and colleagues here in Killarney

Michael maintains that we get a lot of our inspiration for how we treat our guests from the old "Cheers" sitcom on TV, where they sang in the intro tune that "you want to be where everybody knows your name".....! Geraldine says that it's all about treating people the way you'd like to be treated if you were in their shoes. So when you bring those two attitudes together, you end with with a Killeen House type of welcome!

Thanks again for the great review Des and you know where we are when next you plan to visit the Kingdom. (And we hope Dublin come second in the big match on Sunday!!)

Geraldine and Michael know how to provide a great experience. Don't be put off with the distance from town -- Killeen House is a 3 mile walk (near a paved path through beautiful country that leads directy to town) or short drive from Killarney: lowing cows, lovely and lush green fields and a warm, wonderful, friendy and accommodating staff enthused to help and serve you are your reward. My room was a single which was quite comfortable. The busy bar and restaurant, both patronized by locals and visitors, have a menu with outstanding choices which are all carefully prepared and are tasty, tasty. Breakfast included with the lodging spares nothing; generous servings of hot and cold foods.

What a wonderful and straightforward review Sam - thank you very much! We truly are grateful to you for taking the time to put it all together and posting it up here on Trip Advisor.

Lest you convey a slightly wrong impression, we are in fact just under four miles from the Town Centre of Killarney, but for those so inclined, it is a beautiful walk. The first part of it - less than a quarter of the overall - is along country roadside, but then you enter our amazing Killarney National Park and the remainder is along beautiful parkland and woodland trails.

Also, every single room rate we quote here in the Killeen House includes a full Irish breakfast.

Because we are so removed from other breakfast options out here in the countryside, we feel it would be unfair to charge room only rates!

Thanks again for the great review Sam, and we trust the rest of your Irish vacation went off extremely well and that you are now safely home in MN, hopefully with many happy memories of your time among us.

All the best.

We stayed for 3 nights at Killeen House this summer and didn't want to leave ! The proprietors are friendly, helpful, and so genuine. We look forward to a return visit to golf at more of the outstanding courses in the area , and explore the many areas we didn't have time to see. The restaurant is outstanding, the service excellent - can't say enough positive remarks . We will highly recommend to friends and family.

And we were especially pleased that you listened to Michael about which golf courses to play Lynda...otherwise there might have been a different outcome!

My wife and I just finished an 8 day run through Ireland. We stayed at the Killeen House for 2 of those nights and it was by far our favorite place to stay. The hospitality was just excellent. The owners are both so friendly and kind and their warm welcomes are very genuine. The same goes for their other staff. The bar is a great spot to hang out and chat with others about your day's adventures. We also ate dinner in there one evening and their pub grub was exceptional. The food in the restaurant was excellent for dinner and breakfast. It really was the perfect base for us to explore the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula and many other locations across our 3 days in the region. The name of the place is perfectly representative of the place also. It looks like a house, has rooms like a hotel, but feels like a B&B with a fine restaurant and nice pub all built in! Do not miss it!

These weren't complaints for me, but just noting them for other travelers... As with most hotels in Ireland, there is no AC in the room. There aren't a lot of TV channels to choose from, but that's hardly the point of a trip to Ireland is it?

Room Tip: We were on the 1st floor and had no issues with noise from bar/restaurant or common areas personally...

Hi Richard and sincere thanks for the fantastic review here on Trip Advisor - we are really grateful to you for it.

And thank you especially for highlighting one of the attractions of our Hotel that we often overlook, and that is it's great location from the point of view of touring the entire region.

Killarney (and the Killeen House of course!) is a great hub in which to stay, and each day for four or five consecutive days, you can take off in different directions, to see and enjoy such amazing experiences as the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula, the Gap of Dunloe, Cork & Blarney and of course the jewel in the Crown of Kerry Tourism that is the Killarney National Park.

We're very happy that you enjoyed all aspects of your stay with us and that we played our part in hopefully creating many happy memories of a special Irish vacation.

Thanks again and all the very best.
