“Lovely stay and great staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2012

I stayed here for one night as I was attending a family celebration here. The hotel is located just outside Cavan town and has plenty of parking space free of charge. We checked in without any fuss and our room was on the 1st floor. It was very clean and had a lovely en suite bathroom. The meal we had at the party was very good and the restaurant and bar staff were very friendly and helpful.
The lobby area is lovely and spacious with a warm open fire and comfy couches where we could sit and relax and watch the world go by! The breakfast was very good and our tea and toast were topped up without us even needing to ask. I would certainly stay here again. It was a lovely stay.

An average hotel in Cavan town, Actually the hotel is about 10 minutes out of the horrendous traffic of Cavan town. We hadn't made a reservation but reception was efficient and welcoming the room was a bit on the small size but it was only for a night. Bar food was ok we were unfortunate to have been there during a comedy show so with the influx of locals in their finery, some meals on the menu were out. My wife had a bit of a fuss with the chef when she ordered a well done hamburger that came over- rare and the waitress and bar manager claiming it was well done and it was only the dye in the meat that kept it red. This of course is a load of rubbish and catering staff should be a little more honest when mistakes are made. Breakfast was good and choices were also good. All in all an average hotel not the best or worst we have stayed in it is good for a stop over there is no wow factor in the town or hotel.

Room Tip: be away from the area where a show is on

We stayed for one night, the room stank of cigarette smoke, was very small and the open slat saloon swing type double door on the loo was just ridiculous. The food at the wedding ok, breakfast was pretty awful. Check out was very early 11.30am. Overall very bad value for 140 euro, we won't be back!

This hotel won't win any design awards for its exterior appearance, somewhat like a 1970's pre-fab finish which is a pity because once inside there is a very cosy and welcoming atmosphere helped by the extremely friendly and efficient receptionists on the front desk.

We had meals from the bar menu which were good value and well presented, the service was a little slow but that seems to be the norm in Irish country hotels.

The room was spotlessly clean with a flat screen tv and was well heated as were the public areas we came across, the famous swing doors into the bathroom are a bit of an eye sore and whoever dreamt those up was definitely out of touch.

The breakfast was the usual fare from the ubiquitous hot bins.......... what a waste of good food left stewing for God knows how long, when will hotels go back to serving breakfast to their clients at the table, surely there must be a plus to be gained by presenting food which arrives freshly cooked and most importantly looks appetising.

My wife and I have enjoyed another great stay at the Kilmore over the October weekend++. Our check-in was instant and done by a very pleasant and smiling receptionist (Majella). Our room was at the front of the Hotel (as requested) with a view of the rolling countryside, it is also facing easterly so we had the sunrise in the mornings. The sleep quality was very-very good with a very comfortable bed.

We dined there on Monday night in the Hotel Restaurant and both of us agreed that from start to finish the food was really great. The breakfast was also very good with no restrictions to the amount of food you put on your breakfast plate. There is also a complimentary news paper available.

The bathroom was very roomy with fresh smelling towels etc and a very large shower. The cleanliness of the bathroom was very high as was the room and the Hotel in general.

We found the family of staff very attentive and friendly in every respect. All-in-all, we really had a lovely time in the Kilmore which we used as our base for touring in the Cavan area with all it has to offer. Will we be staying there again! YES.
