“Family break”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Overall enjoyed our stay, hotel is quite basic but ideal for families. We stayed in a family suite and it is a great option as there is plenty of space. Kids club, playground and pool were great, however €3 for a jug of Mi-Wadi (very dilute at that) in the hotel bar with our dinner was outrageous and I have never being charged for it before - very disappointing. Also the distance from reception to our room was very far - you would almost need a bike!

Room Tip: Enquire when booking about a room/suite close to reception.

Our tour booked us at this hotel and it was a disappointment. First, there was no air-condition (although I understand that many hotels in Ireland do not have AC); even though the staff have me a fan, I was sweating in the middle of the night. You're about 2 miles away from the town too which got expensive with taxis. It's worth the extra dollars to stay at another hotel closer and perhaps have an AC.

Recently stayed here in family suite. Would highly recommend these suites for families with kids of any age as there is so much space with the 2 rooms. There is an old and new section so when booking make sure you get a room in the new part. (all suites in new part as far as I know) Our 2 kids loved all the activities available-never seen so much for kids to do in any hotel before. Apart from swimming pool and playground, there is a great games room with pool, air hockey, arcade machines, chill out area and a large hall for soccer or basketball-would suit young kids and teenagers. Great location few minutes from town. Food and decor is definitely only 3 star but if you have children it is worth it. Breakfast very basic but probably similar to most 3 star hotels. Staff were friendly but bar/restaurant service was a bit slow-for such a busy time of the year, I thought there should be more floor staff. Not a hotel for a romantic break but would definitely return here again with the kids-they loved it and hated leaving

Room Tip: New section of hotel!!!

I just got back from 3 nights in the hotel Kilareney, and I wish someone had told me about it 10 years ago, it is by far the most child friendly hotel I have ever stayed in, the activities advertised on their website are included when you book a room so there is no hidden charges, they cater for all ages, the children loved it, the pool, the playroom, the movie, the animal show, the bouncy castles, the music, the list goes on, we got snacks and treats from a well stocked deli across the road,and spent hours at Kennedys pet farm, less than a 5 minute drive from hotel, so the location is also ideal

Room Tip: pay a little extra and book a suite, its worth it

On entering you will notice that the place is more like a daycare than a hotel, this hotel has a lot of buildings and contains a large ammont of people , the hotel has a small pool that is full of small kids hyped up , most rooms have a 5 minute walk of confusing corridors and lifts from the reception, the hotel is also a far walk from the town, we got a refund after an hour here, don't stay here!!

Room Tip: Do not stay here
