Great place to stay and dance in Killarney Ireland

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 20, 2008

We have travelled from Australia five times in the last 7 years(2011) to the Ballroom dancing week which is held twice a year at the Gleneagle. We only found out about it from a friend who is Irish and has been many times. Most of the folk who attend are Irish so you get to meet the "locals",who I might add are delighted to welcome us.

The price for the week is a really good deal which includes meals,accommodation,dancing lessons, a gala night, and music in the evenings with a real band. The music makes you want to dance.

There are other types of dancing breaks as well which you will find on their website.

The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. If you arrive by train there is a bus to meet you at the station. There are ample car parks. There is also a bus shuttle into town ...if you are fit town is within walking distance. And of course Shannon airport is not far away as well as hire cars and taxis.

Yes I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

Unique Quality: You will find most of what you want at the hotel: pleasant surrounds , coffee shop (makes great Irish coffee).dining rooms, a gift shop, a beauty parlour, dance areas,and regular entertainment in the evenings. Often you see the jaunting cars go by on their way home... you can hear the clip clop of the horses feet ..their drivers tired after a busy day .

There is a venue in the hotel where international artists such as Daniel O'Donnell appear regularly.
Trips to the Lakes, Ring of Kerry , and other attractions can be arranged at the Hotel as well.

Nearby is the sister hotel The Brehon which I was told is very nice, built recently , and probably a bit more upmarket . We are very happy with the Glen Eagle.

This is 2011 and the economic downturn is starting to bite. The Glen Eagle seems to be coping but I see signs of some cutbacks...esp in the dining room. Meals are cheaper and not as classy as in the past

Directions: Arrive by train and you will be met by the glen eagle bus.
Drive along Muckross Road (out of town) and the hotel is on the left
