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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Incredible house in a beautiful location
Stayed for a family gathering and it was the most incredible experience. The house is so beautiful and luxurious. We had the best time in such a stunning location. Jonathon was so helpful and obliging he couldn’t have done more for us. Would highly recommend this house for a group or family getaway, wish we could have stayed longer!

Amazing experience - do not hesitate to book!
Churchtown House is truly in a class of its own. Our Canadian family of 14 stayed here for the week of our wedding, which we also held on the estate. The house itself is magnificent – all the charm of a Georgian manor with the luxury of modern furnishings and impeccable cleanliness. I've stayed in several other manors/castles across Ireland and the UK, but have never come across one as meticulously maintained as Churchtown House. The location is also worth gushing over. Surrounded by stunning parklands which include a fine golf course at the foot of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks. It is also a short drive into Killarney or Killorglin should you wish to enjoy some of the best pubs and restaurants in the country. Whether you're a golfer, a hiker or a keen shopper - you'll be in the right place! Jonathan and his staff couldn't have been more accommodating, whether it was hosting a drinks' reception on the day of our wedding, or cooking us a family BBQ in the days leading up to it. Any of our requests were seen to promptly with an air of friendly professionalism. Our deepest thanks to the entire team - I'm afraid you haven't seen the back of us!

Fabulous
Stayed here for 3 nights for a family staycation. The house is beautiful and immaculately clean. The Christmas decorations really added a great touch and you could tell a lot of time went into decorating the Christmas trees. It was lovely waking up in the morning to the view of the mountains and no noise from the hustle and bustle of the city. Would highly recommend and thank you to Jonathan and Helen for all your hospitality.

The most luxurious, idyllic, comfortable, well organised, brilliant location and perfect hosts w have ever experienced
Churchtown House has to be one of the best accommodation's we have ever stayed in in Ireland. We like our luxury, and this house is 5/6 start hotel quality. The furnishings, the equipment, the rooms, the grounds, even the bedding, bathrooms...absolutely everything was perfect. The house is beautiful and equipped for your every need. The location could not be better, peaceful but within 5 - 10 minutes of Killarney and all the amazing tourist attractions. Elegant Ireland organised our tours and trips superbly and in great luxury. But the absolute biggest pleasure of Churchtown House is Jonathan in Beaufort Golf Club and Restaurant. The walled garden around this beautiful house has an opening directly into the golf club and golf course, and there lives Jonathan and his team. They catered for our every need both practically re their knowledge of the house, but most especially, our meals. We had lunch served and evening meals that Jonathan catered for us on our veranda at the house. Exquisite food and service. We also had little surprise deliveries in the mornings of freshly baked scones, breads and amazing pastries...I cannot express how delicious all our meals were. Jonathan and his team also catered a birthday dinner for us in Churchtown House and the most amazing birthday cake. If there is such a thing as 6 stars, Churchtown House and its hosts would achieve all.

A Majical Christmas Time
We had the absolute pleasure of staying in the beautiful Churchtown House for Christmas. The house was so beautifully decorated, the open fires lit, it was picture perfect. The house and grounds are so inviting, and our wonderful hosts Jonathan & Helen could not have been more helpful. We chose outside catering and Jonathan organised everything for us. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you again and we will be back. Tommy & Sandra O' Mahony

I'm already homesick for Churchtown House!
Photos cannot do justice the beautiful home and grounds of this very special estate! We stayed for two weeks with family and friends and could have stayed for two more! Helen, Fiona and Jonathan did a wonderful job answering our questions, setting up tours and transportation, and preparing delicious breakfasts and cozy suppers. There is so much to do! Exploring the Reeks; the Ring of Kerry or just staying "home" and wandering out the side gate to play golf! We look forward to coming back next Fall!

Wonderful stay!
Just returned from an incredible week at Churchtown House. We were a group of 14 people including babies, teenagers, adults and grandparents, and the property was perfect for all of us. The house is beautiful inside and out, with gorgeous grounds with golf course on one side and grazing sheep on the other, tennis court, large bedrooms, multiple cozy sitting rooms, and a massive kitchen that could accommodate all of us. Fiona arranged everything in advance including tours, in-house chef, and cribs for the babies. Absolutely fantastic!

Absolutely Magical!
Jonathan, Helen and Fiona could not have been more welcoming and hospitable during our stay at the Churchtown House. We had a group of 13 and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Our catered dinner and daily breakfasts were absolutely delightful, and the stunning scenery made us never want to leave. Thank you for the trip of a lifetime!

This Place is something very special
This truly magnificent house surrounded by the most beautiful scenery is indeed something very special. We had the entire house to ourselves which made for a very relaxing break. Fiona who runs the house can look after your every possible need from catering to boat trips! If you are looking for something a little bit special I couldn't recommend Churchtown House enough.....
