Reviewed 28 March 2012

For anyone undecided about booking Kelly's don't waste anymore time. Having grown up in Kelly's every Easter for 15 years I couldn't recommend the place higher especially to people with young families. The standard of service in somewhere so big is somewhat phenomenal and it's those personal touches that make the difference such as the handshake to welcome you "home" on arrival. Whilst my parents still go twice a year a few years back we returned as a family now much older but the only way things had changed were for the better. A new spa, dining room and much more renovation & inovation had meant Billy Kelly and his team had not stood still in these hardest of times. With great facilities, food, staff, entertainment & overall good Irish craic it's somewhere I hope to bring my kids in the future.

Keep up the good work.

Dear Peter,

Many thanks for your lovely review on Trip Advisor.

It is always a great pleasure to see people returning each year; it gives us confidence that we are providing good customer care and service, which is our priority.

I am delighted you and your family have enjoyed the many facilities we have to offer over the years, we try to maintain high standards introducing new ideas, especially in these difficult times.

It was great to see your parents here at Easter, they were in great form. We hope we will get the opportunity to welcome you back with with the next generation of the Tumilty family in the near future.

With good wishes.
Bill Kelly

First trip with family, and met all our expectations. Stayed there as a child, and now I understand why my parents took us there! It is a great holiday for parents and children. The staff are fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. If we were to be picky, we stayed out of season and entertainment seemed to be aimed at an older age group (we are a young couple).
Food as hoped was fantastic, and we found the whole stay so relaxing we stayed an extra night! While it is expensive, there are no additional/hidden costs once there, and the charge for childrens creche/entertainment is minimal are well worth it! The babysitter the hotel arranged was really very good. You can also listen in to the rooms from any phone (which is not advertised online I think) which is great if one of the kids is asleep or even at night.
We'll be back next year (but maybe during school hols).

Dear Camtraveller-10, Thank you for your very kind review. We were happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit with the family to the Sunny South East, it is wonderful to have the next generation returning.

With different live music every night of the week, it is difficult the to find "the one suits all entertainment", but we will keep a close eye on the offering.

Thank you again for your comments. We look forward to welcoming you back some time next year. Kind regards, Bill Kelly

Stayed in Kellys for a night with my wifes family as they were treating my mother in law for her 80th birthday. What a fantastic hotel this is, it's not the most modern hotel but the service is second to none in Ireland, anyone running a hotel and wondering how to treat their guests should spend a nigh or two here. The food is great and especially good value if you are staying on full or half board as then everything is free and for what you get you will need to spend the rest of the time in the gym to justify eating so much. There is a full range of spa treatments going on for anyone interested and the free pool, sauna and leisure facilities are great also and don't miss out on the outdoors hot tub on the beach outside, we only discovered that the next morning but it was lovely to soak then run in to the surf to cool off and hop back in again. The guests tended to be on the elderly side but there were quite a few young families there as well, the entertainment was also a bit twee but kind of added to the charm of the place. We will definitely return in the summer to make use of the lovely beach on the back door step. Would heartily recommend this hotel as somewhere for a quiet break away from the madness and to be treated like a human being for a while. Brilliant service , lovely helpful staff, rare enough these days in Ireland unfortunately.

I stayed in Kelly's for a mid-week overnight spa break. All i can say is Heaven! It truly is another world in Kelly's. The atmosphere is just so relaxed all throughout the hotel. The service from the time you step trough the front door is fantastic. We enjoyed a wonderful day in the Spa and Thermal pool, followed by dinner in La Marine. The food is excellent and the choice for lunch was brilliant. We had excellent beach front rooms, where we ate our late breakfast and enjoyed the view. We had a wonderful time in Kelly's, i couldn't recommend it highly enough!! Will be returning in October for a romantic break!

Room Tip: Book a sea view room, absolutely fabulous.

Just back from Kelly's after a special weekend for extended family and friends break away. Two special confirmations to be celebrated and what a welcome and helpful staff we met once again from the team at Kelly's. We arrived late on thursday night but there was no trouble with a special meal for kids and adults alike. Great food and wine advice for the weary traveller's. Settled into our rooms which were beautifully re-modelled over the winter. Beautiful decor and tasteful touches made family rooms special. A quick dip in the sea and a long relax in the hot tub set me up. Kids were all happy (from teens to tots). Relax, family and adult time was was had by all. Staff from front desk, restaurant and room maintenance made every effort to to keep the good feeling going all weekend long. Food from the kitchen was stunning which made choosing a real issue! We had a special meal for 15 on Saturday night in Beaches which was managed and catered really well. Many thanks to all again. Booking made for next year! P.S.Make sure to open your window at night to keep cool and listen to the sounds of the sea as you fall asleep!!

Went for a short break - overnight. The break started with midday lunch in the Ivy Room, the food was so fresh, desserts we divine. The afternoon was spent in the Spa and Thermal pool, we just drifted into another world. Totally relaxed, we went for a walk on the beach afterwards and had dinner in La Marine. The whole day was relaxing, staff were friendly and made our stay memorable. Next morning, we treated ourselves to breakfast in the room, sea views - we did not want to leave. I have found the standards in this hotel consistently high. The floral decorations are amazing. Wine list is excellent and not overpriced. The hotel has a really nice garden and water features where you can take an evening stroll. Some really good mid week deals - we will certainly be back
