“Happy new year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

I'd like to thank all at Kettles hotel for a great New Year's Eve party. There was 22 of us booked in for food, which was fantastic as always. This is the place to be now. We partied long into the night. The rooms were great again, no hassle to check out early and breakfast was served later then usual which helped with the hang over. Happy new year guys and see you again soon for those steaks

As i'd been here before I brought our work party here for christmas. The deal was great and it was a mixed party night in the ballroom. We had a great time again and the food was great value. There was. Glitter everywhere and I'd like to thank everyone at the hotel and wish them a happy new year

Popped in Was passing. Decided to have a bite was impressed by the quality on offer for bar food. Was not overly hungry and so asked could I have 2 starters and was accommodated. The pate and the Brie were delightful will return to sample some of their more substantial dishes

We stayed here for a night on our trip to Ireland two weeks ago. I'ts very close to the airport and we had rented a car so access was easy for us and we also had free parking at the hotel. The staff at the hotel were very welcoming and we ate in the restaurant that night as it was open til 10pm. The food was very nice and the guinness irish bread was a treat (we couldn't find it anywhere else in Ireland on our trip as nice). The room was spacious and clean and we enjoyed our stay. We skipped breakfast as we had an early start, but it looked like a great choice. Thanks to Sebastion for showing us how to work the sat nav. Would recommend.

Myself and my husband stayed in kettles a number of weeks ago when we were flying out of Dublin Airport as we could leave the car free of charge. We arrived the night before, dropped the bags & went straight into the "snug" for a drink. The atmosphere around it was amazing and the barman donal was extremely friendly. We could not believe such a amazing little bar in a Hotel. We then moved up to the lounge where clodagh looked after us from start to finish, what an asset to the business. The food was mouth-watering & extremely good value. We hit the bed early so to be fresh for our flight and had a very comfortable nights sleep. We had a brilliant holiday and decided to stay in kettles when we came back again for a night where our stay was just as pleasurable. This is an outstanding hotel that has it all, The character, the quality food & drink and without doubt its biggest asset is their staff. We will definitely be back soon :)

This hotel is quite rural, and only practicable if you have a car. If you have, Kettles is well situated for access to the airport and the north of the city. Accommodation is fine, and the breakfasts are excellent (though the Saturday breakfast seems to be a very leisurely affair, with staff only starting to serve at 8.30am!). The bar food looked fine and seemed to be going down well with the diners, but we decided to try the good-value Early Bird menu upstairs instead - a big mistake! The garlic mushrooms had been deep-fried in oil that seemed to be well past its sell-by date and were inedible - I struggled manfully to eat a small amount before giving up on them, spouse refused even try one. Main course of steak was somewhat better, being more or less edible, but far from enjoyable. Accompanying chips were huge but tasteless! Waiter was very apologetic and the bill was reduced to compensate for awful mushrooms and poor main course. It's a pity that this bad meal spoiled an otherwise satisfactory stay. My advice: stick with the bar food! We would stay in Kettles again, but no more Early Birds!

I booked two a room for my partner and I, second room for my partners parents who had came over from Liverpool !! This Was the worst start to our day !! Manager barbara was dealing with us and we found her unprofessional and unfriendly !! We had booked our rooms months in advance, also other guests had problems with there room booking !! This is the last thing you want happening on a big day like this !!!! This set a bad atmosphere for my family and I.
