“Has the 4 Gs”
Reviewed 16 July 2009

Good location, good food, good staff, good facilities. We were warmly received and everyone made a point of remembering our names. The owner, Michael really has the personality and management perfect, Janet and the other staff were right on, and Charlie in the bar remembered not to remember the jokes I told and laughed heartily. Though not the most elaborate facility, the general comfort level was exceptional and the dining room produced delicious and interesting meals, the Irish breakfast included.

Rarely do you find a place that exceeds your reasonable expecations at every single turn, but such is the case with the Killeen House. Start with a high quality facility, add a staff that genuinely cares about your stay and your satisfaction, add in management thate seamlessly mixes humor with a real set to their business, mix in a top shelf kitchen staff and a menu that is varied and fantastic, and set it all in the middle of a setting where you expect leprechauns to greet you every morning and you have The Killeen House. Upgrades in every element. Roomy, yet intimate. Quiet. Service oriented and clever. We can't wait to return there!

Killeen House attracts a lot of golfers -- because there are many courses nearby. However, it's so charming and romantic that it's the ideal place for couples looking for that magical getaway. My wife and I stayed for several days -- and were enfolded by the friendliness of Geraldine and Michael -- the owners -- and everybody else on the staff. The rooms are very attractive, the surrounding countryside has ruins, sheep, horses and grand vistas of the Killarney lakes. It's just five minutes from the crowds of Killarney, but at Killeen House you're in a soothing, entrancing world.

I use TripAdvisor often, and this is probably the highest rated hotel I have ever seen, so our expectations were quite high. Our expectations were met, for the most part. The staff is incredible. We arrived late after much driving and were greeted by Charlie as if we were family. Throughout our two night stay, everyone we came across went out of their way to help with a sightseeing recommendation or draw a map. We had a large room for our family of four (the largest of our entire trip to Ireland), with a huge bathroom. Breakfast was fantastic with lots of choices. The hotel is a little out of the way, but is an easy five or six minute drive into Killarney. The only (very minor) complaint I would have is that if you are not a golfer, you may feel a little left out, as this place seems to be golf central, with golf balls on the walls, golf art, etc. I really wanted to give this place four stars, just to break the cycle, but it is well deserving of all five stars.

After reading the many incredible reviews of the Killeen House the expectations for my stay were very high, but Michael, Geraldine and their staff beat them by a wide margin.

I was traveling with my father for his birthday. We stayed at Killeen House for three nights, we had reserved one room with two beds. The staff impressed from the beginning when, because an extra room was available, they suggested my father and I each have our own separate rooms for no extra charge!

The food at the restaurant (Rozziers?) was by far the best we had during our 7 day visit to Ireland. It was so good that we ate dinner there for three nights in a row. Living in NYC my food standards are high... I found the rest of Ireland not so good, but Killeen House meals became a highlight of each day. Excellent food by any standard, not just by Irish comparison.

Whatever request we had, was met with a smile and an assurance that it would quickly be done... and it always was.

Free use of their computer with high speed internet access helped making some last minute flight changes.

Best hospitality of any small hotel I have visited worldwide. Will be back.

My brothers and I took my father to Ireland for his 60th birthday and could not have been happier with the Killeen House. The pour your own drink bar was a nice way to relax at your own pace after a round of golf. Also, the restaurant has great food and stays open a little later than most eateries in the area. The beds were comfortable and the shower pressure good. Most importantly, the staff and owners are great and made our stay that much better. We had no problems at the Killeen House and would not stay anywhere else in the area if we ever return.

Our group of 14 chose the Killeen House Hotel for a five night stay at the suggestion of our trip planner. Mike and Geraldine Rosney and their staff went above and beyond to make certain our stay was most enjoyable. They really are interested in making your visit the best possible experience. Geraldine was particularly interested in seeing that our wives were enjoying their visit and offered numerous helpful suggestions on activities while the guys were playing golf. The food was superb and quality was as good as any place I have ever dined. The atmosphere here is one of comfort, quaintness, impeccable service and I would not hesitate to stay here again.
