Rooms were beautiful

Pros: The staff was amazing. The hotel grounds were gorgeous. The rooms were all tastefully done and the shower had wonderful pressure. The breakfast was very nice and the coffee was some of the best I had in Ireland. Our favorite part was being able to sit by the fire and have a nightcap after a long day sightseeing.
Ard na Sidhe Country House is a great choice for a stay in Killorglin. You can relax with a drink at the bar/lounge, and the restaurant is the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat. Other highlights at this upscale hotel include a terrace and a garden, and rooms offer room service and bathrobes.
Pros: While primarily for adults, I'm sure children are welcome. We loved our hosts Myra and Michael. Myra offered the full Irish Breakfast or a hearty continental. The Irish Breakfast was quite good. When I saw how close N70 was to the house, I thought we might have noise, but we did not, and I am a light sleeper. Good restful stay and wonderful conversations with Myra and Michael. Myra was helpful confirming our arrangements with the boat ride to Skellig Michael, having breakfast ready early so we could make an appointment, and she gave my husband and I a box of chocolates and birthday card when she found out we were both having birthdays while there. Being slightly north of the Ring of Kerry was also welcome because it was more quiet in Castlemaine which also positioned you nicely to Dingle.
Cons: Nothing negative whatever to say.

Seems like all the money was put into the lobby. Rooms need updating. We had dinner which was pretty good but the buffet breakfast was not as good. Eggs were cold and runny. Despite the lack of help, those there did the best to accommodate your needs.
Pros: Lobby was very nice.
Cons: Noise from the street and a dog that barked continuously while trying to sleep. Having to get log ins for the wifi every 2hours for every iPad or iPhone. Having to go to the bar to find someone to assist you at the reception desk as no one was ever there
