“Irish Hospitality at its Very Best”
Reviewed 18 June 2010

Killeen House Hotel and Michael and Geraldine Rosnay (the owners) were some of the highlights of our stay in Ireland. It was the least expensive hotel in which we stayed but it was the best in terms of hospitality and food. The hotel restaurant serves truly excellent breakfasts and dinners with wine prices that are reasonable. Michael gave us accurate and comprehensive travel advice before and during our stay and was a font of useful information about all of Ireland. He and Geraldine were delightful hosts and we are looking forward to a return visit as soon as possible. This is not a 5* establishment and anyone expecting that may be disappointed (nor does it charge 5* rates.) But it is a very restful country inn with exceptionally warm and helpful staff, comfortable but not luxurious rooms, and an excellent location for touring SW Ireland. We are not golfers but nonetheless were made very welcome and attentatively cared for. Had we been golfers, I imagine this would have been heaven-on-earth as the inn is in the midst of several of the best courses in Ireland. In sum, I recommed this inn to anyone who wants a true Irish experience, genuinely warm hosts and some of the best food anywhere.

I have been a client of the Killeen House for a dozen years, either staying there myself, or sending friends and clients. If you want to feel like you are arriving home, stay at the Killeen House. The feeling you have as soon as you arrive makes you want to extend your stay. Whether it is for a golf tour and sightseeing(my recent one) it is a great base to operate from in the Southwest of Ireland. There is a reason why the reviews are so high-it is the best! Incredible owners and staff are there to assist in any way.

PS: The Championship rooms are great!

I booked the Killeen House based on the reviews on trip advisor, and I was amazed that it not only lived up to the hype, but exceeded my expectations! We stayed in three different hotels/B&Bs during our trip to Ireland, and Killeen House was by far our favorite. Although I didn't even have an address for the place when we got to Killarney, I simply stopped at a gas station and asked for directions. I actually thought it was pretty easy to find and loved that it was a little outside of town. The scenery around Killeen House is gorgeous! We had dinner in the restaurant the first night we arrived, and it ended up being one of our favorite meals. It wasn't cheap, but definitely worth it! We ate next to a cozy fireplace and after a couple glasses of wine, we merely had to walk upstairs to our room. It was so relaxing! Mike and Geraldine and the rest of the staff were unbelievably helpful. After our two nights stay, we felt like welcome friends. I have been fortunate enough to stay in quite a few fancy hotels over the years, and I thought the Killeen House rivaled them all in cleanliness and service but still maintained the comfort and quiet we wanted out of a B&B. If you are looking for somewhere to stay that is remotely near Killarney, this should be the place. Thank you Killeen House for your hospitality!

We felt as though they had known us for years throughout our three day stay. The friendly, understated warmth and congeniality was exceptional. Gavin, the new bartender, bellman, etc. was so charming, fun, helpful, and Irish. The restaurant was equally as charming and quaint, but had terrific menu items for both breakfast and dinner. The chef prepared exceptional dishes and you should go there even if you don't stay at the Killeen House. The two owners made sure that we felt welcome and exuded sincerity.

The grounds are lovely and the gazebo is a terrific place for a before or after dinner drink. Our room was warm and had all of the amenities of more upscale hotels we stayed in. This is the hotel to be in, in the Kilarney area. If you want to get a feel for the Irish experience, this is it.

The food is delicious from the Chateaubriand to the porridge. Geraldine and Michael are the owners and hosts. They provide a warm atmosphere where your every need is met. They greeted upon arrival and gave us a warm personal send off. Their daughter, Michelle, was our server during the evening and added to our enjoyment with her sparkling personality. If you are looking for a warm, cozy inn with gourmet food breakfast and dinner, Killeen House is the place to go. The rooms are spacious with all the accompaniments. This was our second visit and we plan a third.

The owner Michael treated our group of four like royalty, while also making us feel as welcome as family. Would highly recommend Killeen House.

A great place to stay. Super friendly staff, excellent restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Michael, the owner, is very concerned that his guests enjoy their stay. A small hotel with a tiny pub that gets very busy. They also teach you how to pour a Guinness if you like. Staff waited up for us one night to see if we wanted anything before bed. Check for specials. No downside.
