    Friendly staff

    The staff were really helpful. the food at breakfast and dinner served was very good.

  • Couple

    Very reasonable for price, friendly staff. Food in restaurant good with good portions and value for money. Fantastic shower, don't think I ever felt such pressure!!

    Could hear music from nightclub Saturday night in room, this did not bother us as heavy sleepers. No on site car parking, but ample free car parking on street.

    A good base for touring North Kerry Region.

    Lack of Leisure Facilities, Basic Breakfast, rooms a bit dated.

  • Family with children

    very courteous staff and lovely food

    no parking,but on street parking was good

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Charming atmosphere, nice lobby and bar, good bar food, comfortable rooms with all the neccessary equipment, perfect location close to kerry airport (7min by car)

    rooms at very end of 1st floor (over the kitchen) are very uncomfortabel because of permanent destortion by growl and hum of a ventilation system (till late night and from early morning on) Try to avoid these rooms.

  • Single

    Clean room, good hot shower and close to Kerry airport (10 mins)

  • Couple

    Convienience. It is in the town of my partners family.

    Breakfast is too expensive

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Staff very helpful & polite,rooms more than adequate great bath, excellent atmosphere in bars & restaurant

    The road front room was very noisey

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Hotel was near to athletic track which was main reason for booking

    Unfortunalely noise from disco/function at night made it difficult for children to get a decent nights sleep- would not book again unless sure we could get a room not over function room

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    The hotel has luxurious and worthy like interior in the hall but in inner it is more 'business' like with long corridors and a lot of the same like rooms. Room itself was clean and spacious with tea kettle and satelite tv. Location of the hotel was very central on the beginning of main street. A lot of parking spaces are located along wide main street.

    Views from room was very depressing to partly rosted iron roofs and backyards of mainstreet shops. There was a little bit of sidedishes on hot breakfast which not included the room price. Because low season there was lower number of staff members working and so sometimes we had to wait service. Hotel pub is only one isolated corner of large dining room.

    Location was ideal for our visit. Have relations in Castleisland and we were attendinding a family funeral. Have eaten in the hotel on every visit to Castleiland (since the hotel opened) and have never been disapointed with the food or the standard of the service provided. This visit was the first time that we used the hotel for accommadation( normally stay with family) and could not fault it for the price we paid. Castleisland is an ideal centre for visitors who wish to vist County Kerry, being only 17 miles from Killarny and 12 miles from Trallee. In the past it was a very busy market town, but the recent bypass has affected the town and its trade, which is a shame. It has plenty of facilities for the sporting visitors, an excellant sports field, with athletic stadium, local golf and fishing can be arranged.

    Parking at the hotel. You can park outside the hotel for up to 3 hours during the day, although there is a free public car park a few minutes walk away. Knowing the town and location fairly well I believe it has space behind the hotel which could be used for guest parking, but I may be wrong.
