“A Little Piece of Irish Heaven”
Reviewed 17 September 2011

If you want the ultimate in a small hotel setting with warmth, comraderie, exquisite food and clean well furnised accomodations and plenty of hot water don't miss the Kileen House Hotel. Your hosts Geraldine and Michael Rosney are ever present and will provide you with whatever your needs are. Within a 5 iron from downtown Kilarney (albeit a pretty good 5 iron) it provides access to some of the greatest golf courses in Ireland and to the Lakes of Killarney with alll the views and majesty that you could want. The small "family" honor system bar offers the opportunity to meet and know the other guests and establish friendships that seem to last a lifetime. We have been there multiple times and it just gets better and better with each visit.

Room Tip: The "Championship " rooms are a good deal more spacious than the "Standard" room...

Before I left for Ireland, it hadn't occured to me that staying at Killeen House would be an integral part of the whole Irish experience. Thanks to Geraldine, Michael and all of the wonderful people that work with them, my 8 days in their hotel was such a delightful part of the trip. Killeen House is not just a place to have breakfast and sleep; it's a warm, inviting home away from home. The rooms are so comfy, the food - breakfast, lunch and dinner, is outstanding. And there's always someone to greet you at the door when you "come home"!

We recently had the pleasure of staying at Killeen House in Killarney and can't rave enough about it. You are made to feel most welcome right from the moment you walk in the door. The hospitality, service and just overall amazing atmosphere is unmatched anywhere we have ever been before. Michael, Geraldine and all the staff are very warm, welcoming and can't do enough for you. We truly felt this was our home away from home...
Aside from the hospitality was the great location. You could easily make this your base while seeing the amazing sights of Ireland, not to mention the excellent golf courses nearby.
Be prepared to have some amazing meals in Rozzers as well....

Having been to Ireland to golf on three different ocassions I have had the opportunity to stay in may places. However, for that feeling of comfort, open armed hospitality (Michael and Geraldine and staff) and great atmosphere just open the front door and begin an unmatched experience. Contribute a ball to their wall display in the bar, sit and relax in their living room after a day of touring or golf, debate the pros and cons of each course with Michael and Geraldine at the bar or at dinner. In every instance you will feel like part of the 'family', a warm, welcoming and caring group it is. Don't miss it!

we have stayed at the killen house hotel 5 times in the last 15 years and just returned after a 5 year hiatus. everything that was so good before remains but somehow seems even better. the location is perfect with easy access to downtown killarney, killarney national park (riding and hiking), the ring of kerry and excellent golf courses. there are some excellent restaurants in killarney but the best is located at the killeen house hotel. rozzers restaurant offers gourmet dining and for those who want a simpler meal they have added a new lighter fare menu.

what most sets the killen house apart though are your hosts michael and geraldine rosney and their staff. welcoming, friendly, always accomodating and always professional. returning to the killeen house feels like coming home.

We haven't stayed at the hotel as we have a holiday home locally, but we can testify that the restaurant and bar food is very good. The staff are always helpful, friendly and attentive whenever we eat there.

Killeen house is situated outside the town center of Killarney close to several world class golf courses. We stayed in the hotel for 8 nights and tried some of the demanding links courses. Even if we do not look upon our selves as golf champions we stayed in one of the "championship rooms" that was clean and spacious. Great breakfast was served in the charming breakfast/dinner rooms.
We also tried out the dinner menu twice. The food as well as the wine was excellent.
Further, the service from the staff and owners was perfect through our stay! The owners even gave us their transport golf bag since ours was run over by an Avis employee.
We recommend Killeen house especially for golfers who want to stay in a charming atmosphere outside the city center.
