We were part of a tour group of 44 folks. We couldn't have been more pleased with the service and the wonderful dinner meal. Thank you, Mike and Geraldine for a marvelous time. You and your wait staff are the best!

I can’t say enough great things about our stay here at the Killeen House. It was the best experience of our entire trip in Ireland. The setting was peaceful, serene, and perfect for our family group of 7! The first evening we sat out on the front lawn and enjoyed some wine and cheese we had brought with us. The following day we walked the entire Gap of Dunloe (thanks Geraldine for the recommendation) and upon returning we were tired, hungry, and wanted to watch some World Cup soccer. No problem at the Killeen House! Lorca set up our lunch in the living room area where we could relax on couches and comfy chairs, eat and watch soccer. Both evenings we dined at their restaurant, Rozzers. The food was fantastic (especially the lamb) and the service was fabulous and…fun! We laughed and enjoyed our meals thoroughly. And then, of course, the pub…more laughs with Michael and Steven! My husband was happy to leave his golf tag with Michael to hang on their wall. I hope some day we can return to Ireland and the wonderful Killeen House!

Wow!!!

What a spectacular headline for us to see first thing in the morning - in fact it's a bit intimidating too!

Thank you so much for the outstanding review - we are very grateful to you.

It was our absolute pleasure to look after you all and we're delighted that you all had such a good and memorable time with is here in the Killeen House.

The weather Gods were very kind to you - and the Soccer Gods were too...! Didn't the USA do brilliantly well in the world Cup? They may not have won it, but they have certainly covered themselves in glory for the part they played and the manner in which they played it!

Thanks again Kathleen and all the very best to you all.

Geraldine and Michael are the perfect hosts along with excellent very obliging staff. Our luggage was taken up to the room and an afternoon tea tray was provided in the very comfortable lounge. Our room was on the small side and near the road, but that was our fault for not stipulating our exact needs
Eating in the restaurant was a gourmet experience, and as my wife had her arm in a sling following an accident back home, the attention to detail when her food was presented was amazing.
Nothing was too much trouble. Advice for day outings etc. was inspirational. We think it the perfect place for a golf break and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this charming hotel.
For the night life should it be required, a ten minute run into Killarney.

Room Tip: The east side we think would be a better choice

Good morning Norman and thank you for your great review here on trip Advisor -= we really do appreciate your taking the time and effort to write it and post it up.

It was a pleasure to look after you both ion your recent visit, and we're delighted that you had such a good time with us. We suspect that our 'organic' food may have played a big part in the overall experience too.....!

Now that you've discovered the joys and beauties of the Kingdom of Kerry, we hope that Pauline and yourself might come back and see us again at some future stage.

Thanks again and all the very best to both of you, especially Pauline and we hope her recovery is speeding along....

What a wonderful place! It is as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside. They have a nice garden outside and the view is of a green pasture with cows, and old church and the mountains of the ring of Kerry - breathtaking. they have a nice little bar where you can pour your own beer (you just write down what you had on a peice of paper and leave it for them) . The rooms were very nice with knock you over water pressure in teh showers. the sitting room is also beautiful. It is about a 7 minute cab ride to downtown (you do NOT want to drink and drive in ireland) and on the way you pass a nice meadow with a great look out of the ring of kerry lakes and mountains - ask your cab driver to stop for a photo. We did not eat in the restaurant, though I heard it is wonderful. My mother liked a poetry book she had been reading in the sitting room and mentioned it to Geraldine as we were checking out and she gave the book to my mother. Wonderful people and a great place to plan your Ring of Kerry adventures. We stayed there 2 nights and loved it.

What a wonderful review! Thanks so much for taking the time to write and post it here on Trip Advisor - we really appreciate it.

We enjoyed looking after you all and we're delighted that you so obviously enjoyed it too...!

The book of poetry you mention is a collection by Michael D. O'Higgins, who has since gone on to become the President of Ireland. We can't say too much about his poetry because it's a bit over our heads - but he's been a great President so far!

Thanks again and we hope the rest of your Irish Jaunt went off well for you all.

Stayed 2 nights in June with my wife and 9 year old daughter. The experience was just what we had been told. Amazingly friendly staff and Michael and Geraldine the owners were there and checking on us the whole time. They know how to make you feel at home and really showed what Irish hospitality was all about. They made sure our daughter was taken care of and included in the conversations as well as showing her some of the games in the bar to keep her entertained (she never did get the golf ball on the tee snow globe). We were in Ireland for 10 days total and this was our favorite place by far. We ate dinners at the bar and had great food and excellent service and company. The breakfast was great and we never waited for anything. The room was plenty big for the three of us and was clean and well kept. Michael helped us with our plans and gave great advice on what to see and do. For a relaxing, feel at home place with great people that take time to spend with the guests - this is your spot. Would recommend for anyone traveling to Killarney.

Thank you very much for the great review here on Trip Advisor - we really and truly do appreciate it!

It was our absolute pleasure to look after you all and we're delighted that your stay with us went off so well. Our only little regret is that Ruby didn't get the ball 'teed up'...but that might just be the excuse you need to come back and visit us again!

Hope the rest of the trip went off just as well and that you're now safely back home in beautiful Utah...!

Again, sincere thanks for the great review.

I had the pleasure of staying at this Hotel for 5 nights in may of 2014. I was recommended to us by a friend that had stayed there in the past. My room was a little on the small side for 2 adults but we were offered a larger room and declined. Those that had the larger rooms were very happy with their room size. I found the food to be outstanding. The staff went out of their way to come in early and serve breakfast an hour before they would normally open up in order to accommodate our requirement to go golfing early. The breakfast menu had a good variety to choose from and they will make up anything that you ask for if it is not on the menu. The meals that I had were the best during my 2 week stay in Ireland. All of the staff went out of their way to smile and make sure that we were enjoying every aspect of our stay. This gem is located an easy distance from the bustling little town of Killarney and close to some very good golf courses. The cosy little bar is a great place to have a night cap and review the days events. I was on a golf trip with friends but I would recommend this Hotel for couples and families as well. I give it a 10 out of 10.

Room Tip: If you are not a couple choose the larger rooms.

Hi Billy and sincere thanks for the outstanding review here on Trip Advisor - we are extremely grateful to you for going to all the time and trouble of writing it and posting it up here on Trip Advisor.

We're delighted that you enjoyed the stay, and it was our pleasure to look after you Billy.

As you mention, here in the Killeen House we have two room types, our Standards and our deluxe Championships. The Standards are the rooms that were in place when we bought the Killeen House on the first day (away back in 1992). They are small rooms by modern standards, and they are also the reason we are rated as a 3 star property rather than a 4 star property. But we strive to keep them well and renovate and refurbish them frequently.

The eight Championship rooms that we built on to the Hotel are much larger and more well appointed than the Standards (and a bit more expensive to stay in obviously!). We would happily compare them with any 4 star (and maybe the odd 5 star!) hotel bedroom in Ireland.

Thank you also for mentioning the overall service, food and ambiance Billy. That whole area is totally down to the people who work so hard here, and we are especially proud of what a nice - not to mind professional - bunch we have working with us!

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

I had the opportunity to spend a few days at Killeen House while on a golf trip with 11 friends, and what a wonderful stay it was!!! I stayed in a "Championship" Room and it was everything I hoped for and more... large room, very comfortable beds, lots of natural light and a good sized washroom. The restaurant and pub served fresh, delicious meals and the beers on tap were always frosty and fresh! The staff was excellent; friendly, knowledgable and enjoyable to talk with.

Although the accomodations and food were top notch, what I really appreciated more than anything was the "above-the-call" service and hospitality! We checked in late in the afternoon and were warmly greeted by the owners, Geraldine and Michael... arriving downstairs for breakfast the next morning we were all welcomed with a personal "Good Morning", followed by our name, greeting from Geraldine and Michael!! This was common throughout our stay, morning, noon and night! While relaxing in the wonderful sitting room downstairs, Michael would drop by for a chat and offered assistance for all of our needs!

I wouldn't hesitate recommending Killeen House to all; golfers, bikers, sightseers, and those needing a place to crash for the night, etc. etc.!

Room Tip: Book a "Championship" Room....
