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.
