21 bedroom hotel in the heart of Kildare town and only thirty minutes from Dublin, the Kildare House Hotel has the welcoming ambiance of a Country House Hotel with the advantage of being perfectly located in the heart of Kildare town.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Old fashioned hotel but It was warm and comfortable, shower was weak pressure. Had pizzas in the bar they were very nice. The car park is a disaster only small amount of spaces and on the main road you literally nearly have to stand on the road to open the boot of the car..

My stay at this hotel was lovely, easy and pleasurable. When I arrived, I checked in with a very friendly man. The keys to the bedrooms were old-style (i.e., lock and key, versus electronic) which I found nice and quaint. The bedroom was immaculately clean, as was the bathroom - which also looked to be newly-refurbished! The mattress was extremely comfortable and I found that the bedsheets weren't the typical scratchy variety you get in the usual hotel, but were actually nice and soft - not exactly 'brushed cotton', but quite close. As a person that is very sensitive to scratchy bedsheets, I really appreciated this. The proximity of the hotel to Kildare Village and also to Dublin was great! The breakfast in the morning was so tasty; tea was served promptly on arrival and I ordered the French toast with maple syrup and bacon. Food was delicious. I didn't eat dinner in the hotel the previous night as I was in the neighbouring county Dublin until late. There was hot /cold water in the showers on demand and there were lovely shower gels/shampoos all laid out nicely. The bedrooms had tea/coffee making facilities with nice, big ceramic mugs at your disposal (unlike the typical small-and-white variety of mug often offered at hotels). The electric fire was on in the lobby until late and I was sorry I didn't get in from Dublin before 11pm as I would've loved to have tried a cocktail from Soul Burger!!! Bedclothes and towels smelled lovely and fresh. Room was quiet at nighttime but there was a bit of noise from traffic passing outside - also, blackout curtains mightn't go amiss! All in all, a great stay and brilliant family-run hotel - I will recommend it to friends/family and will be back.

Booked this family run hotel based on previous positive reviews. I can only reiterate that the service and quality of the hotel were first class. Staying for a week in late February we checked in early on a Monday afternoon. From the greeting at the desk to a drink in the bar later the staff were exceptional. Breakfast each day was freshly cooked and very tasty. The room was well furnished and fairly large with more than enough space to relax when reading (or waiting for your wife to get ready). Bringing friends for dinner only confirmed the quality of the food. Attentive and knowledgeable staff it was a pleasure to stay and look forward to returning. As an aside the area is well catered for in terms of shopping with a purpose built shopping village built a ten minutes walk from the hotel.

Lovely hotel, friendly staff. One of the most comfortable, softest. beds I have ever slept in !! I'd go back just to sleep in the bed ! Didn't worry me, but there is no lift. Cheerful man on reception offered to carry my bag up though ! Two restaurants on site.

Firstly I must start with a huge thank you to Martin who helped us out hugely before we arrived and during our stay. He was a total gent and really went above and beyond for us. The restaurant staff were also brilliant, extremely friendly and chatty. Food was beautiful and very good value for money. The hotel is beautiful and me and my family will definitely return in the future. Thanks again for everything Martin..

We went for dinner here last night and I have to say it's one of the best meals I have eaten out in a very long time. We opted for the Dine for Two Meal and I had the wings to start and then the Thai Stir-fry with chicken if you like spice this is the choice for you it was beautiful. My husband had Garlic Mushrooms and the Salmon Special and again was so delicious. The whole night was made even better by the service we received and seen through the restaurant the waiting staff were so attentive pleasant which heightened the enjoyment of our evening. We will definitely be returning again.
