About Rathkeale House Hotel

Nestled in an old orchard, this charming, family run hotel oozes the allure and character of an old world hotel. Large, spacious public areas, high ceilings, earthy colour decor, open fires and the use of wood create a unique atmosphere here in the hotel. We have 26 tastefully-decorated bedrooms, all en-suite, with direct-dial telephone, tea and coffee making facilities, air conditioning, free wi fi, free parking and multi-channel TV. Plenty to make your stay as comfortable as can be.

Relax in the newly refurbished foyer where you can enjoy a leisurely drink or light snack by the warm glow of an open log fire. The hotel grounds are beautiful with a wide combination of shrubs, trees, flowers and a beautiful array of roses all surrounding a fabulous wooden gazebo which is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the tranquil surroundings.

Be it that special treat, evening meal, wedding function or conference it is without doubt an ideal central venue.


The Hotel was re-opened in September 2011 under the ownership of Damien & Brenda O’Grady. Damien, Australian born has returned to his roots as his father was born just outside Rathkeale.

The hotel is a family-run business, so you can be assured of personal attention at all times. Our aim to ensure that your stay will be a truly memorable one, in the hope that we’ll be welcoming you back again in the future.
