“Killeen House Never Fails to Impress”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

My husband and I organized and accompanied 12 of our friends on a golf trip to Ireland this past summer. We spent 9 nights in the southwest of Ireland. Five of those nights were at the Killeen House. Our friends who had never stayed there, were very impressed as we knew they would be. Michael and Geraldine and their outstanding staff have never let us down. The food is so fantastic as is the 'craic' in the pub. As is always the case, we didn't want to leave. Our next stop on the itinerary was nice but as everyone said....'it did not hold a candle to Killeen House, especially the food'. When traveling in the southwest of Ireland, this is a definite 'must'!!!

Hi June and thank you most sincerely for this superb review here on Trip Advisor - we really and truly do appreciate it.

For at least three different reasons, you and John are absolutely any Hotel's dream guests!!! You are 'repeaters' who have been with us on numerous occasions down through the years...You trust us enough to give us the loan of your own reputations by bringing along groups of friends to stay with us...and you constantly talk us up with all your friends at home!

And to top it all off - you are purely and simply lovely people!

Thanks again so much June, keep well and we look forward to seeing you both again soon.

M+G.

While on a golfing adventure with three friends in southwest Ireland, I had the good fortune to stay at the Killeen House for several nights in Sept. The accommodations and the food were better than excellent, as was the Guinness served in their pub. Add to that the cheerful folks who work there, and the owners who did everything possible to make our stay there memorable, including helping us secure new tee times the morning after a late evening in Killarney, and you can't help but wonder why you would stay anywhere else. I've been to Ireland many times, and have met many welcoming folks, but none more so than Michael and Geraldine at the Killeen House.

Had a wonderful 3 days at Killeen House in July 2013. Geraldine and Michael were superb hosts and made us feel most welcome. Accommodation and food were excellent.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we would highly recommend Killeen House.

We stayed here in 2009 … I am writing this review in 2013, because our experience here has stayed with us this long. Great food, great people, the best experience we could have ever hoped for. Kileen House is a must see and stop when visiting Ireland. Four years later, we are still talking about it and so glad we made this a stop on our tour of Ireland.

Recently we spent a fantastic week at the Killeen House Hotel. It is in a marvelous setting about 10 minutes outside of Killarney . The accommodations are wonderful ...our room was spacious and clean and very comfortable. The warm and cozy bar is a perfect place for making new friends when stopping in for "a pint" after a day of golf, touring, fishing, or just relaxing. The excellent cuisine is extensive and changes seasonally. Geraldine and Michael Rosney and the entire staff are great hosts and always available to help you plan your day, whether it be golf, fishing or sightseeing. We feel there is no greater value than spending time at the Killen House Hotel . We can't wait to return !!

Hi Becky and John, and thank you both so much for writing and posting this fantastic review of your recent stay with us here on Trip Advisor. We are very grateful to you.

It was a pure joy to accommodate and look after you and it was very gratifying for us to see not alone how much you enjoyed what we here in the Killen House had to offer, but - much more importantly - what Killarney, Kerry and Ireland had to offer.

As far as we're concerend our function in life is to do what we have to do to send all of our guests home from Ireland as happy as we possibly can. Then al we do is pray that they have big mouths, good memories and lots of friends......!!!!

Thank you both again for the wonderful review and we look forward to welcoming you both back the the Killeen House at some future stage.

I spent a few days a the Killeen House in August and have to say it was fantastic. As a frequent traveler, I'm probably more picky then most .... but can absolutely attest to the fact its a first class operation. The rooms were immaculate, the staff was friendly and always available, the bar was lively and the food was outstanding. If you are traveling to Ireland, this is a hotel where you wont be disappointed.

What an outstanding review Bill - one we are truly grateful to you for writing and posting up here on Trip Advisor.

The review headline says it all and it is extremely gratifying for all of us here in the Killeen House to know that we can manage to look after so many of our guests in such a way as to give them happy memories that live long in their minds!

When you spend your money in a store, you walk out the door with something tangible that you can point to and say to everyone that this is what my money got for me. But when you spend it with us here in the Killeen House, all we can give you as you leave us is memories. And the better the memory the better the quality and value of the spend!

Thanks again Bill and all the best to you all.

I stayed at the Killeen House on a golf trip, excellent stay, room was clean, food was great and the Guiness was even better. The owners were great and accommodating, they couldn't have done more to make our trip the best ever. I recommend a stay at the Killeen House.
