My husband and I spent the last three days of a 12 day trip though west and southwest Ireland. Before we arrived, Michael (the owner) offered, through email, advise on our trip planning. I knew then, that this place would be something special. It did not disappoint. We did not get a chance to meet Geraldine, Michael's wife, but if she is anything like Michael or the rest of the staff, then she is one special lady. Every aspect of this hotel rates five stars. Walking in the door you are greeted by first name and are made to feel like you have just returned home to your family. The rooms are perfectly appointed, the sitting room is so comfy and cozy, the staff are happy to do what they can to make you comfortable, the breakfast is the best we had (try the waffles-they are great) and the restaurant will rival any found in New York City (the lamb is exceptionally good). I could not find anything to complain about if you paid me large sums of money to find a flaw. Now, if you like the feel of a large hotel, where people politely nod at you but never really acknowledge you, then the Killeen House is not for you. But if you like being treated like an old and welcomed friend, then this is the place to stay. Michael and Geraldine know what they are doing and they do it to perfection. I wish I could remember all the staff's names, but unfortunately only Jessica and Charlies names stick with me. They, like all the staff, are the best...friendly, accomodating, but never intrusive. We decided on the Killeen House based on recommendations from TripAdvisor reviewers. Thank you to all who wrote about this place and guiding us to it. It is a gem not to be missed.
