“extremly beautiful bar food!!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

we recently stayed here for a night and I could only fault the place on nitty gritty things. for example we got no toast with breakfeast and charged for items we had a deal for. but beond that the hotel was peaceful and clean and the staff was extremely helpful. the dinner in the baileys bistro is absolutely gorgous id go to the hotel for that alone, it is excellent quality. the breakfast is served in the restaurant with the hot food being ordered and the cereals fruit and bakery goods being buffet style. although we went down for our breakfast at 9 oclock in the morning where a lot of the bakery goods such as the crossants and soda bread bread where nearly gone and yet where never refilled. the rooms are extremely generously sized with the handiness of a dvd player being in the telly, which dvds are offered from behind the reception desk. I would definitely revist the hotel again and I recommend it to a friend

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on the 14th June for my nieces wedding and I wanted to review the hotel because I believe in good customer service and excellent staff.I asked for early check in so we could get ready for the wedding and even do there was a wedding the day before this was arranged for us. We arrived at the hotel and the receptionist rang up to see if our room was ready and the phone rang out as the staff up stairs had the hover on so when I explained that we wanted to get ready for the wedding the receptionist ran up stairs to check on the room and it was ready and we were checked in with out delay. Hotel room was lovely and spotless.The wedding itself was fab and all staff in at the reception were excellent all guests were served promptly and pleasantly and especially I think her name was paula she seemed to be in charge serving the food and she also served the wine. She was very helpful with arranging a dinner for my 85 year old mam who is a very fussy eater. This girl told us she is working at the hotel 9 years and I just want to complement her on her customer service while serving our table top class well done Im sorry if I have got her name wrong. Also next morning breakfast was top class and again the lady that served us( I did not get her name) but she seemed to be in charge that morning but again excellent customer service. So we have to give top marks to this hotel well done to all we will come and stay again.

My Husband & I booked a last minute trip to Kildare and we are very glad that we did.
Hotel was very accommodating and helpful at all times. Food was excellent on both nights we ate I could not fault food or service.
There was live music in the bar on the Wednesday night which we really recommend and also praised on checkout. Rooms probably not as modern as hotel foyer and bar area but they have everything you need and is exceptionally clean.
I forgot my phone charger in the room but on contacting the hotel after checkout they had it for me and posting it back to me.
Staff was very friendly and helpful and gave us directions to the Kildare Village which is definitely worth a visit. We spent 2 nights 3 days at this hotel and we could have stayed longer there are many attractions to see and do within very short drives away. (Japanese Gardens, The National Stud, Newbridge Silver & White Water shopping centre)
Would definitely return to this hotel when we plan our next shopping trip to Kildare Village.

Hi There,
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We have recently just completed our refurbishment on Bailey’s Bar & Bistro. The summer sessions are in full swing on Wednesday nights we love the atmosphere it creates some fantastic musician locally also.
I completely agree the surrounding area has so much to offer. We are in fact introducing a new tour trail with Quick Tours very soon which takes in many local attractions I’m sure you and your husband would really enjoy.
We very much look forward to welcoming you both back soon.
All the best,
Clanard Court Hotel

this hotel is on private grounds a bit away from the town of Athy, easily reached from Dublin by car. Nice outside seating area to enjoy the sunset. Ideal for a relaxing getaway.
While the hotel was very nice, the dinner was absolutely fabulous. The starters - goats cheese salad for one was really nice. The other starter deep fired brie was huge and really good. The main course of Salmon and sea bass with prawns was truly wonderful. Really well cooked and presented with fabulous flavors and generous portions. I would recommend to anyone.
Good selection of reasonably priced wines. Great breakfast too.
