I recently visited Killarney with friends on an Ulsterbus Tour and we stayed in the Gleneagle Hotel
I had been told many wonderful stories about visits by others who had stayed so I was hoping we would not be disappointed.
From the moment we arrived we met kind efficent staff looking after all our needs.Reception staff were welcoming and helpful advising us about our rooms. One room was not quite ready but the call was made very quickly to advise its availability for the occupant.
Two rooms were refurbished very nicely and the third room was not but the occupants were told it was on the list for update. They had a most beautiful view to compensate for the furnishings and decor.
The dining room ran like clockwork with a team of pleasant capable staff managed by Ricky.
The menu was very adequate and varied each evening and each course was delivered to the table without delay. We loved having an individual dish of vegetables with our main courses.
A starter , main and dessert was served each evening followed by coffee or tea. The food was of excellent quality just as i had been told by many previous guests.
There are two sittings each evening, 6pm and 7.30pm. For a special occasion the booking staff will try if possible to accomodate a change of time but guests were understanding if this was not possible due to the numbers going through for meals.
There was music each evening and this was pleasant to listen to, and to admire the dancers who took to the floor.
We also used the pool, steam and sauna and they were clean and enjoyable.
I had 2 small problems in my room and they were rectified immediately , once reported.
We all enjoyed our trip to this hotel and would be happy to recommend it and we certainly look forward to another visit.
