Lovely hotel great entertainment and a brilliant breakfast.

We had the most enjoyable stay at The Gleneagle Hotel last weekend. Everyone from the front desk to the cleaning staff were exceptional, so friendly and helpful. Though they work hard long hours, everyone had a smile on their face. We were on the top floor with amazing views of the lakes and mountains. We had 2nts b&b+d which was faultless, we also enjoyed the live entertainment too. We will be back and will most definitely use again. 5* all round

Our family have stayed at the Gleneagle for many years now and have found it second to none as regards comfort and value for money. Due to recent events and the children growing up it seems that I will be travelling alone. They must be complimented on their entertainment program and the beautiful leisure centre. I am looking forward to returning there on the 28 January 18 Many thanks to all the staff for their help and understanding.

Had a gorgeous room at the front of the hotel, with a view of a field of deer. The room had a balcony and was lovely & bright & airy. We paid €80 for the room including breakfast. Very happy.

It was one of the best breaks we have had . Our English visitors were very impressed & intend doing it again . Hotel ,food & staff very good . Entertainment very nice . With the amount of people staying it ran very very smooth . Can't give it enough praise .

My husband and I spent our first time in the Gleneagle Hotel. Rooms were spotless with own kettle for making tea. Very warm. The hotel was full of activity providing music free of charge and special events. We enjoyed our food, wine and Breakfast was equally fantastic. I would highly recommend

by patrick desmond on May 26 2015 15:44

I give the Gleneagle Hotel 4 out of 5. I found the hotel staff very pleasent and there was enough facilities to entertain the kids such as the swimming pool, kids under 5 playing area and the hotel's location close to local amenties such as Muckross House and Torc Waterfall. I enjoyed the breakfast.

by philly on May 11 2015 23:44

A bit Fawlty Towers at check in Room clean and warm with a lovely view You need to bring a towel from your room to use the leisure center which was very enjoyable The food in the restaurant was very good Well presented and tasty Breakfast was also very good Good entertainment in the front bar and residents lounge on both nights The only downside was that there was children still in the front bar at 11.30 on Saturday night Will return again

Lovely hotel but needs to be upgraded. Pity that the courtesy bus only operates up to certain times during the day.

by Linda Elliott on Jun 30 2014 16:28

Very good Value - received my request as the 3 rooms were situated next to each other. Would visit this hotel again

We had a very enjoyable stay in the Gleneagle Hotel in Killarney recently. Our room was comfortable, the food was good and the swimming pool a real treat for us. It was a very good price and we certainly hope to be back. PW Tipperary

by christine mc sweeney on Mar 4 2014 15:00

We were very disappointed with our stay as when we arrived there was a dance championship on for the weekend and the children were running around the hotel until 2 in the morning on both nights

by reviewer21580970 on Feb 24 2014 18:42

Excellent facilities for everyone.

by Tcup on Feb 24 2014 00:41

We stayed here for one night with 2 children and a toddler. This hotel has fantastic activities and entertainment for families. Most of the staff are extremely friendly our greeting was very welcoming. Restaurant food quite simple and nice.We would stay here again though just noted a few things our room was quite small for five of us and dated. Also late check in of 4pm bit inconvenient if you only have one night there and want to make most of your time. Found supplement in restaurant of 10 euro per child especially a toddler bit much for what he ate.Overall good value when you consider their entertainment and facilities.

by mary on Feb 19 2014 21:08

Lovely stay in a beautiful room with a view of the mountains,had a great dinner in restaurant,enjoyed the pool and leisure centre,spent the night in the bar with music for entertainment......loved complaints....will return again without a doubt.

Our 2 night stay in hotel was most enjoyable . Food , bedroom and overall comfort was lovely . Loved the cosy areas for relaxing . Will return there . Have stayed in several hotels in Killarney and the Gleneagle is up there with the best of them

by Brenda on Nov 21 2013 20:42

We stayed for 1 night- Saturday. I was very pleased with the hotel, great value for money. I found the staff very helpful and friendly. The bedrooms were spacious-a double and 2 twin beds in all 3 rooms we booked. The lobby area is nice and there are lots of different areas with couches for relaxing. We had the 2 course dinner as part of the deal. It was a nice meal for the price. I was impressed with the price of the house wines and we liked the red. The breakfast was excellent. We arrived at the busy time and there was a queue, but all was well organised. Great choice of everything and the hot food was freshly cooked.We loved the fruit salad and I liked the small bowels of seeds near the cereals.If I had to make a suggestion it would be that the back door to the bedrooms/ car park could do with freshening up -painting. The rest of the hotel is lovely. Enjoyed the pool and sauna. Thanks to all, esp the hostess in the restaurant, she is very good at her job.

by Eoin on Nov 18 2013 11:14

Very happy with the hotel. Pool was excellent for the kids. Price was very reasonable

by hillwalker on Nov 13 2013 12:30

very impressed with the new look Gleneagle Hotel .even though our room was not one that had been refurbished it was still lovely and comfortable.There are many really nice areas to sit have a coffee, read ,or just people watch,some with lovely open fires just like being at home!We got a nice surprise when we saw that it was free for residents to the inec acustic room where Don Baker was playing(saving us 30euro). The staff were very efficient and friendly and breakfast was very good,however it was missing some pastries which some visitors might like.The evening meal on the other hand was only average but good value at the same time. Its a great hotel to go to in winter or off peak time as there is so many facilities and sense of space which is a bonus when the weather is a issue.Also so good for family groups.

by reviewer42852501 on Nov 12 2013 19:42

The gleneagle is the best hotel ive ever stayed in,we had a fab meal there, and great music provided free to resedents, ile definitely stay there again. Chris from Newmarket Cork.

I stayed here for 1 night on the 9th Nov 2013 with my husband and another couple. Our room was lovely and on the 5th floor. The entertainment in the hotel is superb. You have everything you need in the hotel and theres no need to leave it. We had dinner booked in the restaurant and the food was absolutely gorgeous. Great offers on the house wine too. Pool was also lovely and clean. And breakfast was delcious. I woud definitely recommend this hotel and will be returning soon.

by Grace O Sullivan on Oct 15 2013 13:48

fantastic hotel i would recommend it to anyone and everyone and always do.

by Michael Sheehan on Oct 13 2013 20:50

We enjoyed our stay in the Gleneagle Hotel, the only disappointment was the fifth floor and the air conditioning at the end of the floor staying on until the early hours of the morning. It didn't affect my sleep but my wife found it difficult to get sleep. The room was spacious but would do with freshening up. The food and the service was otherwise very good along with the facilities. All in all I would still return for another visit sometime in the future

by dermot on Oct 10 2013 11:32

We have stayed in the Gleneagles on several occasions ..couldn't fault it ..

by John Galgey on May 30 2013 21:18

My family stayed here for the 2 nights B&B with dinner 1 night deal. We were very satisfied with the room, basic but comfortable and clean. My daughter had a great time in the pool and enjoyed her stay there. There was a darts tournament on at the time and it was a bit noisy late that night and you could hear every footsteps going by our room. The breakfast was excellent and we had a small misunderstanding with my dinner order but the staff were very good with sorting it out and gave us an extra dessert to make up for the small mistake. The bars were good and let my daughter and niece stay there till 10:30 as the were enjoying the music and weren't causing any bother to anyone. I can highly recommend this hotel to anyone with a family for a few nights stay. Thanks today tm for your great deal as we really enjoyed our stay.

by Tracy McElligott on Apr 16 2013 14:30

Great facilities, staff very professional and food is delious, will be returning.

by Mary on Apr 10 2013 19:29

Very enjoyable stay in the Gleneagle and very good value for money. Room was nice with lovely view from balcony. Great entertainment available - Nathan Carter in the ballroom and more music and dancing later in the Green Room. Breakfast was good also and staff very nice. On returning home I realised that I was overcharged as I had paid a deposit when booking and this was not deducted. I rang the hotel and a very nice gentleman on reception was able to rectify this and refunded me my deposit. Looking forward to staying here again.

by mary o connor on Apr 9 2013 16:07

stayed in this hotel last weekend had a lovely time food was fab room was lovely and staff were friendly.

by Jackie on Feb 12 2013 12:24

Nice hotel but a little 'dated' Service in the restaurant on Saturday night was dreadful - the food was cold when it finally arrived. However on Sunday morning breakfast was fine with a great selection. Good leisure facilities but I probably wouldn't stay there again.

by Bernie on Jan 31 2013 15:56

We really enjoyed our time Our room was lovely and our breakfeast was nice too and the music was very good too Tx very much Bernie

by philly on Jan 3 2013 00:53

Reception was a bit confusing when we arrived A table in the middle with a semi circular rope at either side We didn't know where to queue We tried in the middle at either side back to the middle and it all seemed to be wrong as people came from all over and were dealt with before us Having said that the staff were "extremely" good Professional and efficient when they actually got to us Our room was only ok Very dated and worn The radiator in the bathroom underneath the sink was so rusted it was revolting to look at The bath panel was swollen and falling apart from being constantly soaked You could hear people walking up and down the corridor like they were in the same room as us Noise from the bedrooms on either side of us was the same Went to the leisure centre and was told we had to go back to our room for our towels as none were available as they had been wiped out that day as it had been so busy We used our towels and then had to use our hand towels for our showers later Had dinner booked for seven thirty Arrived on time and was seated Then sat for ten minutes without anyone approaching us There was a wine list on the table and went to read it out of boredom more than anything else and just as i put my hand on it, it was grabbed from the table by a member of staff to hand to another customer who was being served at the table next to us We eventually got menus and ordered Our starters were ok My main course of cod was stone cold I couldn't eat it and couldn't get the waitress attention so my husband brought my plate to the man at the door who was seating people At this stage I didn't mind my dinner just being heated in the microwave once it was hot enough to eat It came back to me barely lukewarm We didn't stay for tea or coffee and we definitely did NOT leave a tip We went to see the FUREYs that night and didn't have to pay for it which eased the frustration we had been feeling after our experience in the restaurant Room was noisy when we went to bed from the corridors the rooms near us and from disco type music coming from God knows where We were dreading breakfast the following morning especially with the signs in the lifts giving Green Amber Red times to go to breakfast But found it OK Staff on checkout were again very nice We read that they are renovating but overall we wont be returning in the near future
