The staff were friendly and professional. The leisure centre was a nice way to relax. The parking is secure in the basement of the hotel and ample. Breakfast was of a high standard with plenty of choices.

I stayed here recently for one night. None of the staff said hello to me or good morning during my stay. Service was not good in the bar. I had to wait ages to get a menu and had to wait ages before my order was taken. It was hard to get the 2 waitresses attention. They were chatting too...

We only stayed the one night, as on a short trip to Ireland. The staff were probably the most helpful ever!! Nothing to much trouble and everything done with great professionalism. The room was large, clean and comfy. Would definitely stay again.

I just want to say thanks to all the staff involved in arranging our daughters' Communion lunch on Saturday. The waiting staff were superb & made Anna feel like a princess - we all thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The food was, as usual, top class. The Killeshin has outdone itself again.

Stayed for a Saturday overnight stay at the Killeshin Hotel. Reception area is small and compact. Check in was ok, we were told it had been full the previous night and we'd have to wait till after 3 for our room to be ready which I suppose was understandable.

From entering the hotel to leaving the staff were excellent and the bedroom was very clean and comfortable. This is my second visit to the Killeshin and I'm sure it won't be my last as it is a great stop over when shopping n the nearby Kildare Village and Newbridge.
