Kylemore Pass Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Kylemore
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 7, 2012

This hotel is set in beautiful surroundings with spectacular views. It is absolutely spotless inside. However, every nook and cranny is packed with 'things' - books,ornaments,plates,pictures,old bottles,teddies etc etc. Nothing matches and everything clashes and I found it overloaded the senses. Now that is just my personal opinion and others might like it! Stuart was very friendly, helpful and professional and he seemed to be doing everything. He was in the bar at night and serving breakfast and doing reception the next morning.We had a meal in the bar and it was just ok and a bit pricey for what it was. Breakfast was first class, Dogs are welcome which is a big plus for dog owners.

We called in for some food whilst staying in the area. The staff were friendly enough but the food felt a little over priced for an average bar meal, eaten in a dark grubby feeling bar. We wouldn't have thought to return.

Like a much loved grandmother's house this hotel is warm, cosy and absolutely spotless!! The owners are extremely welcoming and waking up to the mountains is the best way to start any day. It was too short a stay this time but we will be back!

I and my family have spend few days in Kylemore Pass Hotel, and we've really enjoyed our stay. The owners, Rose and Stuart are really nice and have always time for speak with us and propose some wlaks or activities to do.
Rooms are clean and cute, and the restaurant food is succulent!

we stay there nearly every year for over 22 years now with the family, the area is amazing, quiet, relaxing, takes your mind off the fast paced city life and allows you to relax. the staff are brilliant. Stuart and Rose have been friends of the family for years and have great knowledge of the areas and can tell you where the best places to go are for whatever your needs.

We just retuned from a very pleasant long-weekend break at the Kylemore Pass Hotel.The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean.We did not have an evening meal there during our stay but certainly breakfast was fine.(It was slightly unusual in that breakfast was pre-ordered the night before..but freshly cooked to be ready at the required time.I'm sure a change of mind wouldn't have been a problem) The views from the dining room were beautiful,a pair of binoculars available on the window for a closer look !
The 'tour de force' for us was that we were able to bring our dogs with us and keep them in our room.Several other guests had their dogs as well.The dogs were as welcome as the rest of us !
The 'Sailors Bar' is very cosy with an amazing collection of bottled beers and all sorts of interesting knick knacks,despite being non-drinkers ourselves we found it a comfortable place to pass the time.We were told without asking that our dogs were welcome to come in too!
There are loads of books and even board games throughout he hotel.
All staff were very helpful and pleasant.
