“extended adventure in rathkeale”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Our 2 day visit extended to 8 days....this hotel is perfect for touring all the sights of Southern Ireland...It is the best kept secret the hotel is comfortable spotlessly clean and caters for marvellous food congenial and helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble for Damien and all the staff at the hotel. It was such a surprise to find an Aussie running this hotel and bringing his Australian charm and uniqueness as well as his irish heritage making this experience a once in a life time one for us. The bike riding trail that runs close to the back of the hotel was a highlight for us enabling us to see even more of the Irish countryside as well as some much needed exercise to combat all that marvellous food and of course the Irish hospitality in the well appointed bars in Rathkeale House Hotel.

Room Tip: Any room would be a good selection as this hotel is not near any high traffic area and is surrounded...

Room was comfortable. clean and well kept. Staff were excellent and provided helpful hints on sights to see nearby. Breakfast and dinner choices were good, food was plentiful and wholesome. Wine choices were good and prices reasonable. Bar had some nooks to get away from (some of) the noise. Plenty of car parking. Hotel is run by an Australian (Irish). Local village has no other real options for dining. Location is good for sightseeing/activities within 2 hour drive.

My boyfriend and I stayed in Rathkeale House Hotel as we were attending a wedding in Adare- a 10 minute drive away. The staff at the hotel were absolutely fantastic, the receptionist/manager assisted with my hair crisis and did a fabulous job; she happened to have a qualification in hairdressing luckily for me! We got a good deal on the suite which was fabulous- the room was large, pristine and quiet. We had trouble with hot water which was promptly resolved on telling reception. The breakfast each morning was super and so was the friendly service. The staff really went above and beyond to help, even calling in their accountant to bring a set of jump leads when I left the lights on in my car and the battery went flat! The car park is very spacious which made everything easier and the hotel itself is very easy to find from the main road. There does not seem to be much in Rathkeale itself, but the hotel's close proximity to Adare meant it was perfect for us. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The suite was brilliant- I'm glad I paid a tad extra for this luxury!

Just got back from Ireland and Paris. This is one of the best kept secrets in Ireland. The hotel was ready and waiting to accommodate the guests. I was amazed how quiet the rooms were. There was a wedding at the hotel which went on all night (the irish know how to live) but you would never know it. The employees went above and beyond the call of duty. The gardens are so well manicured my children had the best time just running outside. It did not matter what time of day or night it was the staff always had a smile on there face and went out of there way to make our stay memorable. The food and service was top notch. I would highly recommend you take the time and visit Rathkeale and stay at this very affordable hotel. You will not be disappointed. The irish are the friendliest people but the people of Rathkeale are very special. i was very impressed with the culture and the community feeling you get in this town in West Limerick. It shows at this hotel. You all are rock stars. Thanks from your Las Vegas friends.

Room Tip: We stayed for four nights so I stayed on the first floor.

I stayed in the Rathkeale House Hotel in August 2013 for 2 nights. I was attending horse trials in Crecora. There was a regional darts competition on over the weekend I was there but you wouldn't have known as there was no disturbance in the bedrooms at all. The staff were very friendly and once aware I was traveling alone went out of their way to ensue I had everything I needed. Although reception was always staffed help was moments away. Food was also very good. The room was a little tired but took nothing from my stay. I would certainly stay in this hotel again.

Arrived late and everything welcoming and ready. Lots of parking and no bother with checkin. The room was really quiet, bed very comfortable and had an excellent sleep. Breakfast choice really good and it arrived freshly cooked and was very well presented and tasted very good . Service from check in to departure was perfect. No fuss or bother, just got it right for me from start to finish. It's very easy to find off the primary route, and very quiet
