“What a great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

We travelled as a group of eight from Athlone to play golf in Killarney and our stay in Michael and Geraldine's Killeen House Hotel was a most enjoyable and memorable experience.
We enjoyed the very friendly and warm welcome on arrival and we certainly appreciated the collective efforts of proprietors and staff that made sure our every need was looked after.
The atmosphere in the hotel, the food and the service left absolutely nothing to be desired and we will most certainly make a return visit.

Room Tip: just ask when booking as the efforts to look after your needs starts right here

Hello and thank you very much for the superb review - we really appreciate your taking the time to write it and put it up on Trip Advisor

Probably the best compliment that places like ours can get is when people choose to come back to us again, so we are especially happy to hear you're planning on yet another sojourn with us here in Killarney at some future date.

You know where we are and we look forward to welcoming you back, Please give us a bit of advance notice though - good Amarone doesn't grow on every old vine you know.....!

Thanks again and regards to all the boys. Michael & Geraldine

I usually write lengthy reviews but I'll keep this short and sweet. This is the only place we stay at when we come to Killarney. If you want top notch service, accomodation, food, atmosphere and HOSPITALITY - look no further.

Thanks Geraldine, Michael and Damien! You keep us coming back and looking forward to returning before we even leave.

Room Tip: Spend the extra bit of money and get a Championship room (#308 is the best but the other ones we'...

What a lovely - and fantastic - review. Thank you very much, we truly appreciate it

As usual, it was great to have you back in the Killeen House (even if you did take your own sweet time about it!!) and I hope that you'll both have a blast for the rest of your jaunt around this side of the World.

Who knows - you might even enjoy St Andrew's as much as you enjoyed Dooks - although you might not either!

Keep well and see you again soon hopefully. Michael & Geraldine

Have just got back from a trip to Killarney with a golfing group. We all lodged at Killeen House Hotel and enjoyed the warm hospitality of Michael and Geraldine and their latest addition to the staff, who is a natural in the hotel industry. Breakfast was prepared to order and very tasty indeed, preparing us for a hard day at the golf course. Delicious snacks were available in the pub on request, and dinners from chef Paul were first class, making good use of local ingredients. Our hosts were examples of what the hotel industry should be; any slight problem was dealt with immediately. I feel honoured to be part of the Killeen House family and will be back - hopefully accompanied by my husband next time.

What a lovely review, and thank you so very much for taking the time out to write it - we are truly grateful to you

It was a big pleasure and a simple task to look after you all, because you were such a happy and cheerful bunch of golfing enthusiasts - and I just know that Germany now has 12 better golfers than they had just a couple of short weeks ago (and maybe Irish golf courses have more lost balls too.....!)

Now that you have discovered the Killeen House we hope you won't be a stranger to us. If ever you get the urge to re-visit Ireland's South-west, know that the NEW DOOR will always be open for you......

Thanks again and very best regards. Michael & Geraldine

My wife and I have just stayed at the Killeen House for four nights. We picked this hotel from a list of 39 in the area based on the video clip on their website, it appealed to our sense of humour. So we decided to stay at the Killeen rather than our usual choice of a four star hotel. This was definitely a good decision. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. We were addressed by our first names and all staff introduced themselves by name, and remembered ours.
The hotel was very clean, even in the corners, something you don't always get. The decoration was very good and not the mass produced look you get in the chain hotels.
The food was excellent. We ate in the restaurant on two nights and could not fault the standard of the food. The choice was good and we both thoroughly enjoyed all three courses. On the other two nights we did not leave the hotel to look for somewhere else to eat, as the bar food was prepared to the same standard.
The hotel is owned and run by Michael and Geraldine, who are people who actually understand customer service. They speak to you as a real person, by name, and not just a room number, in fact we were never asked for a room number. This approach is also instilled in the staff, we were impressed by the friendliness of Karen and Damien who were very good at giving us ideas of were to go in the area.
Having stayed in many hotels for both business and pleasure, the Killeen House was a welcome change as it was friendly, without being intrusive, relaxed but professional and definitely made you feel at home.

Hello and thank you very much for your kind and excellent review - we really appreciate it

After your drive down the length of the country it was a pleasure to meet and look after you and help you to relax and enjoy your four days in the Kingdom

And thank you especially for your superb photographs of our food - they look almost good enough to eat.......!!! Good job you didn't leave that camera behind you - it might have had a long trip (via Michael) to the lost property department

Thanks again and all the best to Carrickfergus! Michael & Geraldine

I'm particular about my hotels and so glad I booked this little gem! We were greeting at the front door the moment we drove up. That's a first! As I walked in the front door it felt like home and so my two night experience at the "Best Little Hotel in Ireland" began. Our host, Geraldine and Michael, were welcoming, warm, and just down right fantastic! We opted for the newer "Championship" rooms, nice sized room with comfy beds and large bathroom. But I did see other rooms and they were just as nice. I would feel comfortable telling you to book any room here and you will be happy! Some of the amenities: Free internet in the day room and free wi-fi in the guest rooms. Breakfast was made-to-order with a great selection. By the time we returned after sightseeing we were too tired to eat in their 4-star resturant "Rozzers" so we opted for a pub dinner! Both meals were fantastic. However, if you want to order from the Rozzzers menu and eat in the pub you may.

So in a nutshell you are guaranteed a wonderful stay at the Killeen House. Tell Michael and Geraldine that Terri from Baton Rouge sent ya! You might get a nice seat in the pub! On my next trip to Ireland I'll stay there for a week as there is so much to see and do in the area. Lots of hiking in the Killarney Parks and great golf! I'm looking forwrd to my return to the Killeen House!

Hi and thank you so much for the superb review - we really appreciate your taking the time to write and post such a glowing recommendation

It was a pleasure (and a lot of fun) looking after you both, one we hope we might even get to repeat at some future stage here in the Killeen House

We're delighted your trip to Ireland went off so well for you, and now that you've arrived safely home to Red Stick (?) please say a big Hi to any stray weathermen you might meet on the streets over there for us!

Thanks again and all the best to you both. Michael & Geraldine

Spent two nights here in early April when they first opened for the year. I couldn't tell that by the service and hospitality, it was superb! We were upgraded to the Champion Suite and it was a wonderful room. The hosts, Micheal and Geraldine were extermely helpful in their knowledge of the area. This is a great place to stay and will certainly return if the opportunity presents itself again.

What a classy review - thank you very much and we truly appreciate your taking the time to write and post it

And thank you in particular for emphasising the warmth and friendliness aspect of your stay. We have kind of based our business (or maybe more accurately, our vocation!) over the last twenty one years around the three pillars good food, good friendship and, last but definitely not least, good water pressure in the showers!

And please tell Lorraine that for one of her future vacations she should dump you guys and come back to us with a gang of her gal pals - we'd love to see her!!

Thanks again and best to you all. Michael & Geraldine
