The Hotel is situated just of the Curragh Race course and at the top of the town. Lovely food and ambiance. Grounds are lovely for a summers day drink or two. Can be a bit expensive peak season but look out for the special offers

I stopped at the Keadeen for work, as it's the closest to the Whitewater Centre, and had a lovely stay. The flowers inside and outside of the hotel were gorgeous; such a nice touch because I'm used to staying in bland chain hotels.

The breakfast was top quality and wide variety. Probably the best hotel breakfast I've had.

The bedroom was spacious and comfy, good WIFI and good choice of TV channels. Gorgeous old bathroom and nice big bath.

The only compliant I could make was due to the fact there was a race on the following day I struggled to get a seat for dinner, and with the amount of time sat waiting, it took 2 hours to get a main and dessert, but the staff were still nice enough despite being run off their feet. Main course was a bit average, but dessert was beautiful. I'm sure on a quieter evening it would have been exceptional. The groups seemed to be enjoying themselves, but it's not much fun waiting when you're on your own!

Dear Ruth E

Thank you for feedback! We are delighted to be your home away from home!
Unfortunately the week you stayed was Punchestown Races and the night in question everyone came back from the races to eat at the exact same time! We have reviewed this for next year and how we can better improve our service. We apologise for the delay in dining service.

Kind regards
Sharon

I attended the keadeen hotel for a wedding in February 2014, I only stayed for one night and from that night alone I was mesmerised by the first class facilities and staff in the hotel, I Adored the old fashioned style of the frontal exterior, and all the colourful and attractive flowers, the reception felt very welcoming and the receptionist even more so, every room was beautiful, and I was very fond of the design especially of the living room with the fireplace. If I had one negative thing to say about this hotel is that it is slightly hard to find your way around if you are a first time customer, but I'm very glad to see this is countered by labelling separate areas of the hotel with the names of trees, which is another personal touch I love. I was very fond of the barmen serving the drinks, they were very pleasant and humorous, when I finally had to go to sleep, a member of staff was very kind in giving clear directions to my room, which is always appreciated, and the bed was extremely comfortable.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for all occasions, and I will most definitely be coming back again

We stayed here recently whilst in Ireland and had a lovely stay at the hotel. The rooms are a lovely size with plenty of space and a very comfortable bed. Great shower in the bathroom.
The food is of a high standard and breakfast was a delight with a huge spread featuring lots of variety including a large selection of hot dishes as well as cold.
Staff were very attentive and whilst this is a large hotel felt very warm and inviting

The approach to the reception sets the tone - lovely character and appearance,with superb grounds! A very warm and welcoming greeting.Great to have a receptionist with strong local knowledge.Had a good wander around the town on a warm and pleasant evening returning for a drink and dinner in the bar.Menu was quite good and my curry certainly made the mark! An appealing and comfortable lounge for a relax after dinner.Room was spacious with a lovely view over the garden.A bottle of water in the room would have been appreciated.Bed was just so comfortable and I had a great night,s rest.Breakfast next morning was excellent with a wide selection and the warm breakfast was delicious! Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.Thanks!!!

Hi Joe H
Firstly thank you for your opening line ‘Love the Keadeen’, my three favourite words to see in any review and secondly thank you sincerely for being a long standing customer. It humbles us greatly to have such a large loyal customer base and especially those who notice all the extra effort we put in and the attention to detail that goes a long way towards making our hotel what it is.
However given your wonderful opening comments, I am disappointed to go on and read the rest of your review. I can only assume as a long standing customer you have our best interests to heart in voicing your remaining comments. However, I think it is important to note that our food service times and product offering have been fine tuned over the past 43 years and are actively reviewed on a regular basis and adjusted according to actual and perceived demand. One such example is the recent extension of the club bar evening menu service times.

Thank you once again for your feedback.

Kind regards
Sharon
