Reservations:Due to the unforeseen circumstances and the limited options for us to host the World's, rooms at The Gleneagle Hotel & Event Centre are not available until Sunday, October 9th. The hotel will accommodate anyone needing reservations before Sunday at a hotel within walking distance. They will then automatically switch the reservation to a room at the tournament hotel on Sunday, October 9th.

For example, anyone who will be in Ireland on Thursday will have a room reserved at another hotel until Sunday, where they will be moved to the tournament hotel.

The booking system for the WKC 2022 event in Killarney this October is open for reservations. Guests can select from a choice of hotels onsite at the INEC Arena including the Gleneagle Hotel and Gleneagle Apartments. A selection of nearby 4-star hotels and apartments are also available to book with variances in hotel locations, dates available and bedroom options.

All hotels are approved by the Irish Tourist Board and are contracted specifically for this event with a set amount of bedrooms.

Please note – reservations made in this system are made through the Gleneagle Hotel on your behalf. If you book an external hotel, they will not have a copy of your reservation until after the booking window closes on the 29th August.
