The Killeen House Hotel, an award-winning 23-bedroom hotel in Aghadoe, Killarney, has announced its sale to Killarney businessman Patrick Eviston, who owns and operates the Eviston House Hotel and Brook Lodge Hotel in Killarney town centre.

The hotel’s owners Michael and Geraldine Rosney are retiring after more than three decades of ownership. The new management started on Thursday this week and all existing and future bookings and vouchers will be honoured under the new ownership.

The Killeen House Hotel and Rozzers Restaurant has been owned and operated by Geraldine and Michael Rosney since 1992.

The hotel, a former rectory for the nearby historical church, was built in 1838. It has 23 bedrooms and is set on an acre of manicured gardens less than a 10-minute drive from the centre of Killarney.

Since opening, the hotel has won many national and international awards for its charm and unique guest experience.

“We would like to thank all the guests who came to visit us time and time again since we opened our doors in 1992, our ambition was always to ensure that everyone who set foot on the premises was treated to the best of Irish hospitality. We would also like to express our gratitude to all those wonderful people who have worked with us over the course of the last 30 years and have helped to make so many special memories for everyone sending guests home happy with memories that will last a lifetime,” Geraldine and Michael Rosney said.

“We would also like to thank the wonderful local Killarney community for their support over the years and our excellent local suppliers and industry partners who have always supported us and our vision to make the Killeen House a uniquely charming hotel.”

The hotel’s restaurant, Rozzers is regarded as one of Ireland’s best restaurant experiences. Rozzers Restaurant at the Killeen House Hotel has been in Ireland’s Top 10 fine dining restaurants on TripAdvisor for a number of years. Under Head Chef Paul O’Gorman, it was named Ireland’s number one fine dining restaurant in 2019, 2021 and 2022.

O’Gorman, who has been with the hotel for 27 years, will remain in his role and is looking forward to the future under new ownership.
