“Good but could do better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

Had a family night away at Killashee. Lovely hotel with some great facilities. Kids enjoyed the pool and we had a nice lunch in the courtyard of the bar. The staff are friendly and it's a buzzy spot with regular wedding parties. The restaurant service in Turners needs some focus. The room is missing an experienced hand to lead the team who were a bit lost making it an ok instead of nice meal. The food itself was well liked by our group but for each course we were left waiting too long to get everyone's meal on the table. Breakfast was nice. Would go back.

We are just back from a really enjoyable stay in Killashee. The hotel had been recommended as 'child friendly' and it was our first trip with our 14 month old without bringing his food etc. The welcome was warm, and every one of the waiting staff in the restaurant did everything they could to make sure our evening meal was exactly as we wanted it. Although we ate at 5pm, we got our full 4 course meal as part of our package and everything was done to ensure our baby was kept happy throughout.This morning we were kindly given a late check-out so that 'naptime' could be catered for. This was all with a smile and a 'No problem'. I have never written a review here before but really felt a review was deserved. We will definitely be recommending Killashee, and returning ourselves!

We had our wedding reception in Killashee this year. The day was fantastic due to the brilliant staff and beautiful venue. Every part of the day was exceptional, the grounds were fantastic for pictures, the rooms both in the old house and new part of the hotel were beautiful, the food was delicious and the drinks and food reception rooms looked amazing. We felt completely relaxed from the moment we arrived because we were looked after so well right from the beginning and throughout the day. We loved that we got to spend a few moments in our room, while everyone was asked to move into the reception area, we thought it was a nice touch and gave us a moment to breath and take it all in. We didn't have to ask for anything, it felt to us that the day ran so smoothly. All our guests loved the venue and a few have book other nights and weekends away at the hotel because they loved it so much. It was a perfect day, exactly what you want for your wedding day. Thank you everyone at Killashee

beautiful place to stay would highly recommend it staff were lovely the only negative thing i would say is the lifts are a bit confusing. Everything was great a lot of staff in the hotel so its nice to see so many young people working there. Room service was brilliant regardless of what time it was as we had a late night i still got a meal brought to the room.

To a busy day and frustrating journey.

Having had reasonable experiences at two other hotels in Dublin (see my Camden Court review) I decided to try the countryside beyond the M50. I was recommended two hotels - one on Dublin Bay which was full - and this one.

I will not bore you with my tale of Ryanairs unreasonable behaviour because everyone has that to tell in various forms. Let me just say that I arrived after ten hours travelling and was slightly on edge. The sight of the hotel that greeted me took part of this away - very impressive - and then Laura on reception asked how was my day. A few words of reply gave her the clear indication that the day had not gone well - up to then. Laura however had the remedy - a charming attitude that was like a soothing balm and when I said I needed a drink she pointed me straight to the bar and offered to look after my bag whilst I slaked the first pint or so. Not necessary Laura but thank you.

The room was a short journey away but, hey guys who complain that it was a schlep, how many hotels have you stayed in? Yes, the architecture of the building did not lend itself to straight lines and easy access but it was not that bad - in fact I liked it as I got the impression I was in a private wing.

The room itself was wonderful. Large and airy with all you needed. I prefer a cool room and leaving the window open was perfect for me. The wifi was easy and strong and the tv had enough channels to satisfy all but the perfectionist couch potato

The interior was impressive and the bar friendly and roomy. It served as "Jacks" a restaurant and I ate there each night. My only complaint was that most seats were in poor lighting and I wanted to read. I found a great table though at the edge overlooking the gardens and went there each night.

Now for the food - the chowder was some of the best I have ever had and I ordered it each night - yes, it was that good. Served with a lovely heavy brown wholemeal bread it is unmissable although you may want to season it to taste (that is not a criticism).

I had the fish and chips and the burger and both were very pleasant. However on the last evening I chose three starters. The liver parfait (like a pâté but lighter) was very good, but the black pudding with asparagus and egg was out of this world.

The breakfasts were well presented and full of choice and if I had to find one criticism of the entire stay (and this is only minor) it was on the Wednesday when a manageress ( she wore black and not the red waiter/waitress outfit) took my order without noting it down. She had a 50-50 chance of getting my request of coffee over tea right .... And failed. The order of two fried eggs, two bacon, one sausage and black pudding came as three bacon, one sausage and black pudding! It was put right by the waitress who served me but was a minor wrinkle in an otherwise great stay.

For what ever even of just a break away I would not hesitate to recommend Killashee Country Hotel.

I stayed in Kilashee House Hotel for one night (last Sunday)
we really had a lovely time , The staff were so helpful and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.

The room was lovely , it was a bit chilly though, and when I enquired about it they supplied us with a portable heater until the heating came on . Thats service !

I was a little disapointed that Turners Restaraunt wasnt open on sunday night (sign of the times)
but our meal in Jacks Bar was excellent and we had the lovliest waitress who was so friendly.

It is a pleasure to stay in Kilashee and I would recommend it . Top Marks !

Stayed at the hotel for one night during June bank holiday weekend. First impressions were very good as we approached the hotel up the well manicured grounds. Ample parking at the front of the hotel, very close to the entrance.
Check in was very quick and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
The rooms were very spacious with beautiful antique furniture. The decor of the rooms was in keeping with the period style of the original house.
We availed of some treatments in the Vila spa which is located in a separate building at the rear of the hotel.
They offer a wide range of treatments and overall this was a very enjoyable & relaxing experience.
The restaurant was closed during our stay as it only opens on Friday and Saturday nights, however, we did have dinner in Jack's bistro which is basically the bar area. The menu choice was very good and they was a good bustling athmosphere.
The food was of a very high standard and service was good, again, the staff were very efficient and friendly.
The hotel is just 5 minutes drive to Naas town and about 15 minutes drive from Newbridge so very centrally located for shopping, site seeing and other activities within the county.
Would look forward to returning to the hotel for another stay in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Grayson wing - rooms were very spacious.
