The setting was beautiful, the service was ok, having to book the pool was a pain especially with a 4 year old who always wants to be in the pool and then only gets 15 minutes when you get a time slot once a day.

Excellent location with a walyway to Killarney via the National park. Friendly staff and good facilities. Rooms facing onto the golf course/lake view have a lovely view however privacy is a problem as kids were running on the grass area outside the window and there is no blinds on the windows.

The Castleford hotel is lovely, the hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. The room was spotless and very comfortable. My husband really enjoyed the leisure facilities. Breakfast was great and the view from the dining room was beautiful. There was entertainment in the bar at night and the atmosphere was lovely. I would highly recommend this hotel and look forward to staying soon again.

Aine scored 5 / 5 on 10/09/2017

This break wasn't under the happiest of circumstances as a normal trip to Killarney is for me and mum. We had a family funeral and we also had a special request that needed to be accommodated in order for us to stay over. From the moment I phoned the Castleross Hotel, both Daniel and Joan couldn't have been more helpful. Mum is a puppy walker for the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind and had her second puppy, Toby back on holidays for the week. He is currently a working Assistance Dog in Dublin with a family with a severely autistic son. We needed the hotel to accommodate not only us but our working dog Toby in order for us not to have to face a 4 hour return journey 2 days in a row under difficult circumstances. The hotel couldn't have been more accommodating and welcoming from the moment mom stepped foot in the hotel to the moment we left. Mum had a lovely meal but as I was working late i didn't reach the hotel until after the removal after 10 pm, my only disappointment was that there wouldn't be any option for me to dine at that hour even if it were only a sandwich but luckily i did mention this when booking and was made aware that food would not be available after 9pm in the hotel so I wasn't under any illusion and brought something in case i'd waste away! Mum and I had a lovely drink in the bar before retiring to bed. The room itself was really lovely, we stayed in room 228, modern fresh a beautiful modern bathroom with a fab shower. I must say the towels were incredible and so fluffy and soft like hotel towels should be. After a good nights sleep and a lovely walk in the morning with Toby we headed for the dining room for what only can be described as a delightful breakfast buffet set in a dining room, I only wish was my own living room. A view to be savored even on a mixed cloudy/showery day. Ozzy was very welcoming on arrival and showed us to our table. There was a lovely varied spread and to be fair anyone who could find fault really would be a nit picker!!! We had a 3 course delightful breakfast with nice coffee and a view to die for. My only sadness was the circumstances we were staying here under and the length of our stay also. I had never been to this hotel before but I will definitely be back and think it is a spectacular venue for couples, seniors and families alike. Once our baba arrives in Jan, and the hotel re opens in March, I will be really looking forward to coming back with my husband and new arrival. Keep up the excellent work. Thank you for a lovely stay and being so accommodating from start to finish.

Joanne scored 5 / 5 on 21/07/2017

Brilliant hotel for families, staff are so friendly and genuine, food in Mulligan's Bar was great, there was music there but we didn't stay, went for a walk instead, hotel room was clean, perfect for family, swimming was great, the grounds are fabulous, have a walk around, meet the locals walking on the paths, meet the Deer and rabbits. I will definitely return for a longer stay with my family and explore more. Room was a nice temperature, and no noise at night. Breakfast was served in the restaurant and I forgot to mention the breaktaking views, overlooking golf course, woods and lakes. Again thanks to the great staff, makes so much difference when the staff are so friendly, welcoming and yet professional.

Sarah scored 3 / 5 on 28/05/2015

We stayed in Castlerosse during the week. Initially we were very disappointed with the hotel. On check in, there was no evidence of our booking. The staff were nice but asked me was I sure we were at the right hotel! We were eventually allocated our room but got a bad feeling as the corridors were very old fashioned looking! Our room was very dated to say the least! We couldn't wait to get out of the room so we went walking! This is where things picked up and began to look a bit better! The walks around the hotel are fantastic, as are the pool, food and scenery. If you can live with the very dated room in the hotel- you will enjoy your stay! I would definitely return if the rooms got a re-vamp!!

Brendan scored 4 / 5 on 19/05/2015

BB 19 May 2015 This was my first stay at the Castlerosse and i must admit it was a very pleasant one. I was among a party of 6 who stayed for an overnight. We climbed Carrauntoohil in the morning and checked into the hotel for a nice relaxing swim, sauna, steamroom and jacuzzi in the late afternoon, before having a lovely evening meal with complimentary drink of our choice. The staff were very friendly and fun. The Hotel is situated in a beautiful location just outside Killarney and overlooks the lakes, mountains and golf course. Scenery was spectacular. The entire party all had a very enjoyable stay and all agreed that we would most definitely go back again.

Db scored 2 / 5 on 21/04/2015

Castlerosse Hotel is situated in a lovely part of Killarney on the Fossa Road. However a lot of aspects of the hotel leave me very disappointed. We rented two bikes. First of all the first bike we got the wheel was buckled and had to turn around and swap, the next bike we got the seat was broken so had to endure a days cycling with a seat too low. On our Dinner we got " Chicken Strips " for starters. These literally are chicken strips you would get in a packet from a shop. It was a disgrace. The Steak was gorgeous but our desserts were both frozen solid, actual ice on the inside of the cheesecake. Then I got coffee which was cold. However for the lack of quality in the food, the staff were lovely and very friendly. The room was perfect for a one night stop over.

Cath scored 5 / 5 on 01/08/2013

We had the most enjoyable couple of days at the Castlerosse Hotel. Location is just breath-taking! Our family room was big and comfortable. We ate in the bar and sampled the early bird menu which was very reasonable, food was delicious. Staff were very friendly. This was a very child friendly hotel. They have a kids club which ran a full days schedule. Fab leisure centre and swimming pool. Breakfast was excellent, the breakfast room/restaurant has stunning views. We stayed on a Monday night and there was live entertainment in the bar. They served free squash (cordial) for the kids. There is a walking/cycling path that runs from the hotel through to Killarney town - a very easy cycle and a very pleasant walk. I would definitely recommend Castlerosse Hotel if you are planning a trip to Killarney.. we certainly hope to return again.

Jeannette scored 4 / 5 on 14/05/2013

We decided to head away on a last minute break and we came across this hotel. Being frequent visitors to Killarney, this hotel was a lovely surprise. Very easy to find, and literaly only a few Km away from Killarney town. Location was fabulous and view breathtaking. Hotel decor was a bit tired looking, but not shabby and it added to whole experience, with that lived-in feel. As much as it is advertised as a Golf Resort, it makes the ideal family get away location. Our children loved the kiddies play park, soccer/basket ball court and Tennis court. The swimming pool was lovely and the kiddies pool was super for our little guy. We also enjoyed the steam room, sauna and hottub as well as the jetspray seating area. Mulligans Bar and Restaurant was busy when we arrived due to a function, but staff were very very efficient and friendly. Food was spectacular, and presented beautifully. Range of food on kids menu very well done and very appealing to kids. Breakfast was served the following morning in the upstairs restaurant with the most beautiful scenic views of the lakes and mountains. Choice of food was very tasty and plentyful. Bedrooms a bit basic, however, very comfortable. On the only negative we had was the lack of hot water in the bedrooms for showers/baths. Apart from that we have a really great time and would definately come back. It ticked all the boxes for cleanliness, comfort and homly surroundings.

stayed at the castleross this weekend and i have to say it was the best weekend i have had in killarney in 25 years and i have had good ones. the hotel was fantastic. the food was amazing , portion sizes were good and a 4 coarse meal was €25 per person. rooms were spacious , pool water was very warm ,had no problem to get into the water. but the best of all was the entertainment in the night time.there was an amazing sing song in the bar and dancing. Vikki my 12 year old was called up to sing about 4 songs, but she is a fantastic singer , almost everyone in the bar that could sing ,sang. the athmosphere was eletcric. in future i will be staying at the castleross hotel adn i would recomend it to anyone for the sat night sing song if nothing else.

Miichelle scored 4 / 5 on 22/08/2012

stayed here for 1 night. the room was great, clean and comfortable. the staff were really lovely. There was a lovely buzz about the place as there was a vintage motor bike event on, so lots of going on. the kids enjoyed the pool but i would have liked for more life guard availability. while i know it's my responsibilty to watch my kids i would have loved if this was available, especially as there were so many families there. i cant go in the water so i sweated for 2 hours on the poolside not taking my eyes off them. the breakfast was great, and the view was breathtaking....and all in all a very nice hotel

Joe scored 5 / 5 on 30/07/2012

The Castlerosse Hotel was a wonderful break away from the city bustle. It was quiet, peaceful and we had an amazing view of the mountains. We did a last minute booking with Lidl breaks and it turned out to be amazing. Even though we got the night real cheap, you would never know it when we got assigned to our room. It was beautiful. The breakfast was even included and the buffet was great. We went to the bar that evening and listened to Irish Folk music and had dinner. Everything was 5 star. Our hotel was perfectly located between the Gap of Dunloe and Ross Castle. It doesn't get better than this.

Wellie scored 4 / 5 on 30/07/2012
