“Had Our Best Meal & Best Hosts Here!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

I wish I could give 6 stars to Geraldine and Michael of the Killeen House Hotel. We stayed in Killarney center, and had our bus driver take us here for dinner. Michael greeted us at the door like old friends, and it only got better. Michael realised that one of our family friends was a frequent patron of the restuarant, and we put them on the phone together, which both parties thoroughly enjoyed. We had a few drinks served by the very personable Stephen in a golf lovers dream bar. (Filled with 8,000+ golf balls from all over the world). The entire staff was very friendly, as were all of the guests. Geraldine ushered us into the dining room after a few pints. Lily was our server, and she was very responsive and friendly. I had a ceasar salad and the rack of lamb. It was the best meal I had during our entire 8 day stay in Ireland, and to be matter of fact, the best meal I have had on both of my trips to Ireland totaling more than 30 days! Thank you to Geraldine and Michael for such a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back!

Hi Carter and thank you most sincerely for the truly outstanding review here on Trip Advisor - we really appreciate it.

And a special thanks for name-checking so many of our staff Carter - we strongly feel here in the Killeen House that it's the staff that are the cream on this little cake of ours.

The rest of the world operates on a 'six degrees of separation' principle, but as our conversation the other night proved, we Irish only need one and a half degrees....! What a pleasure it was to re-connect with the Legend that is Jim S....

Thanks again Carter and we're delighted Clan O'Donoghue and sundry hangers on and disciples had such a good time with us!

All the best to you all.

Thanx to Michael, Geraldine and their staff. Their hospitality, the perfect food and their interior made us feel at home. Their craftmanship of running the hotel and restaurant are an example of how hotelmanagement ought to be. They have attention for the smallest details. We highly recommend this hotel and we will be back. Teja and Emerence

Our CIE Emerald Supreme tour included dinner at Killeen House. The entire experience was superb.
Before going into the restaurant, we were greeted on our coach. From there, we were escorted into the splendid dining room.
We had a wide choice of excellent food with wonderful, typically Irish friendly service. The dining room itself is extremely comfortable.
Kudos to the excellent management and staff of Killeen House for a memorable evening.

After considerable tripadvisor research I booked the Killeen House for two nights for my wife/me and two new American friends that we recently met on a cruise. (Very anxious to impress them !!).
I got it right !!, but more importantly Mike, Geraldene, Steve and staff GOT IT RIGHT !!
Mike met us in the car park, a big smile, an outstreached hand and we were instant friends. We exchanged first names ONCE, and from then on, everyone knew our names first time, never a mistake.
Location........................Perfect for golf, Perfect for touring.
Rooms...........................Beautiful (If you're from the USA, cute and dandy)
Rozzers Restaurant........Delightful (The Fish Chowder, like we had on Fishermans Warf)
Breakfast.......................A work of art. (Michelin Star standard)
Staff..............................Well trained and 'just right' on when to appear.
Hosts.............................Informative, engaging and professional.
When we return to Ireland I won't need tripadvisor !!!
Thanks to everyone

Wow John - what a spectacular review!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write and it post it up here on Trip Advisor. We are very grateful to you.

We're delighted that everything went off so well for you all and especially so that Bill and Joy had such a good time.

We were very conscious that YOU were anxious to give them a memorable time and thankfully they had a ball....! Certainly, Killarney isn't the Galapagos Islands, but in our own way, we're just as interesting!

Thanks again so much John and all the very best of everything to you all.

Great food, peaceful location. The Killeen House Hotel is a grand B&B. The Rozzers restaurant is there so your food will be delightful. A small cozy bar and wonderful surrounding lands of Ireland. A wee bit off the beaten path, but a delight. Host Geraldine and Michael Rosney are very fine people and will do everything in their power to make your stay enjoyable. They have won the “Traveler’s Choice in 2013”.

Stayed here for one night in May with my boyfriend and had a really lovely time. The grounds and interior are beautiful. We booked a standard room but got a complimentary upgrade. Their Championship rooms are just stunning. I would highly recommend booking one. We also had dinner in the restaurant. Everything was delicious. Breakfast the next morning (which we were hardly hungry for!) was also perfect with stunning views of the Kerry mountains off in the distance. The staff are all friendly and helpful.
This place is very romantic and just the right if you want a little indulgence for a night.

As part of a group of 12 we have been golfing in and near Killarney for 3 or 4 days each May for about the past 10 years. Just 3 years ago we "discovered" the Killeen House and it suits us to a tee! The proprietors Geraldine and Michael are charming, their staff are well trained and friendly, the rooms are excellent and the cuisine is out of this world. You'll go a long way to find better. The atmosphere is like a home from home.
