I spent a short Easter break with my children (9 and 11). I always thought that Irish Hotels never managed to pull off the kids club type holiday, where parents are rendered almost redundant by fun activities with competent kid club staff. Well Kelly's managed to surpass any experience I have had in hotels abroad. The children had a wonderful time (so much so we ended staying there until 6pm after check out!). Now not to paint a picture of a hotel that is only suitable for families, my partner expressed dismay when I said how great it was for families with kids. However I was able to assure her that it was like two hotels, one section for kids, one for couples or singles looking for a destress break. I cannot describe how professional the staff are in accommodating your every need. Whilst I only savoured the food in the Bistro for dinner (ivy for breakfast and lunch) the food is top class at quite affordable prices. I did have a small issue with the bathroom door handle which was not rectified during my stay which i was surprised with. However it does not stop me from saying that it is possibly the best hotel experience in Ireland if not in Europe. Well Done Kelly's.

We had a meal at Kelly's last Friday March 22nd for a family occasion and were delighted with the food and most especially the service. One of the children tipped over a drink and within seconds there were two staff there to clean it up. The quality of the children's menu is excellent and the portion sizes were spot on. There were bouncy castles laid on free of charge for the children during the afternoon, which was a welcome surprise as the weather was truly awful and they could not have played outside. Would love to return for an overnight stay in the future.

We were visiting relatives and visited the restaurant for a meal. The food was amazing, nothing was too much trouble either. The owner also came round and visited all the tables which was a lovely touch really recommended.

Kelly's is without doubt a family hotel where generations of guests return with their nearest and dearest and enjoy the familiar surroundings of this long established, family run hotel. Friendly, professional staff members are the key strength of this hotel, and without them it would not be the resort it is. The art collection that adorns every free wall throughout the hotel is worth the trip alone, and walks along the beautiful strand are a must. Rooms in the older part of the building are adequate, warm, well equipped but are certainly not luxurious. Sound is a big issue and I'd recommend you bring ear plugs in order to get a peaceful night's sleep. I had to get up at 1.30am and ask a group of people on the corridor to keep the noise down or move.
The spa is beautifully designed and decorated but somehow feels like a conveyor belt of treatment after treatment.
Dinner is a wonderful experience and the restaurant at Kellys is a master class of Irish artists. Food is again at conveyor belt speed, but suberb in quality, freshness and flavours.
After dinner, people seem to sit about in the corridors and reception rooms with feet up, zimmer frames parked and books in hand - very off putting for the younger generation, but in fairness, the younger generation are in the clear minority at Kellys!
All in all, a chilled family experience for the older generation

Room Tip: Sea facing in the new part of the building

I spent a couple of great days at Kelly's recently. I have been visiting there on and off for the last thirty years. The weather this time was awful but it did not dampen our break, It was lovely and cosy to watch the waves crashing to the beach from our sea view room - and from the sauna! I enjoyed the bridge workshops and the nice relaxed reading room. The staff are excellent - their attention to detail coupled with the warm welcome on arrival was great. I was delighted to see so many familiar faces among the staff.

Also, an item which I had left in the bed-room, was carefully wrapped and posted to me within a few days

Well done to all

Very Satisfied costumer

I stayed here for 2 nights in May 2012. While I couldn't fault anything I do think that the value isn't the best that is out there. This is the only hotel that I have stayed in that charges for toddlers. I don't think that is a good policy. The facilities are top of the class and the beach on site is a real bonus. However, this hotel is not high on my list for a return visit.
