“Little Gem!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

A nice, small sized Hotel which is located a wee bit off the beaten track. It's set in a pretty idyllic location with Horses roaming the surrounding Fields.
Following 2 minor hiccups upon checking into the Room (which were promptly sorted, so I won't even mention them) i treated myself to a light meal & refreshments in the Bar. The food & drink was lovely & the staff throughout the Hotel were very friendly.
Room was clean, functional & spacious & rates here are competitive.

Arrived on 26th June for 2 nights booked in after 9.30pm no food available also no room service sandwiches. Reception helpful on booking in. Room very clean and breakfast very good and served by good staff. Be aware the hotel is out in the country a good way from Dublin, but a bus service runs from outside the hotel (wait at the crossroads no bus stop sign but bus will stop ) the cost E2.65 each way these buses are approx every 4 hours and last bus back from Dublin centre approx 11.15pm. On our last morning I enquired if it was possible for us to stay another night, unfortunately the computers had gone down, the receptionist was horrendously harrased to the point of rudeness, which spoilt a rather pleasant time we had had.
All in all nice hotel but to far away from Dublin so for this reason would not stay again.

Just stayed for a two night short break. And cannot complain
Hotel was very clean an tidy with good food all be it the rooms were quite warm but it was clammy outside. Would recommend to anyone. This was convenient as we went to Kildare shopping village and Dublin City centre so is a good base for a bit of exploring.

Stayed for last 2 nights of trip & were very happy that we had booked Kettles.
Very clean & comfortable rooms with every possible amenity catered to.
We didn't have time for breakfast either day,but it all looked very nice.
Would happily stay again.

On the 19th of June I attended my brother’s wedding with my husband and two small children. The accommodation was wonderful and spacious and incredibly comfortable. The decor was new and fresh. The room plan was well thought out to accommodate parents with small children (sleeping area on one side of the room and a very comfy sitting area on the other).

During our stay we had lunch, breakfast and dinner and not one complaint about the food... I would definitely recommend the Open Prawn Sandwiches... I usually find the amount of prawns pitiful but not on this occasion... yum.

The staff were wonderful. From the receptionists who were incredibly helpful when my father was taken ill. The event manager who was on hand at any given moment, who made things flow effortlessly and night security who assisted with sleepy children after a long night dancing. I had occasion in dealing with all of them throughout our stay and I have to admit, I cannot remember the last time I received such wonderful customer service. A genuine want to help in any way possible and checking in to make sure everything was as it should be.

Plenty of parking and a beautiful garden hidden away at the back of the premises with lots of space for the kids to run around. Great venue for a wedding, yummy food and wonderful staff. Located out in the countryside for the peace and quiet but with a bus services that will take you into the local bustling village in 15 minutes where there are restaurants a plenty, a large shopping centre (the pavilions), pubs for all ages, a nightclub and a cinema. Also a short drive from Tayto Park and Newbridge House and the National Aquatic Centre... I definitely recommend it.

My wife and I booked in here on Sunday and were pleasantly surprised by the amount of people dining in the lounge. We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful receptionist. Our room was very clean with a view over the countryside.
We don't usually eat carvery food preferring a la carte especially in the evening but unusually the carvery was being served up to 8pm so we give it a go and the food was great and good value.
We had a lovely breakfast next morning and nothing was a bother for the waitress who served us exactly what we ordered. As we checked out we chatted to another very friendly and helpful receptionist Toni and we told her we loved the hotel and it deserved a good mention on TRIPADVISOR and to the friendly barman in the lounge who served my wife coctails THANKS

First visit to Kettles Country House Hotel and I was pleased. Hotel has a lovely setting , room was very clean and in good order , food in the restaurant was also good. Staff were polite and helpful however under pressure on Saturday morning as not enough staff to cater with breckfast serving receptionist had to help with clearing tables .
I was disappointed there was no entertainment , especially Saturday night as this hotel is 3 miles from Swords town centre . I know it is the world cup season but on Saturday night a fella was playing records in one part of the bar while the other half of the bar were unaware . It felt as if the Management were catering for locals and not residents. A two piece band to play on a Saturday night should definitely be considered

Room Tip: we stayed in room 209 and this room was quiet
