Loch Lein is a wonderfully comfortable place that feels special from the moment you pull up and see the verdant setting, sweep of lawn with (in September) hydrangea in colorful bloom and shimmering lake beyond. Paul welcomed us with tea; his wry sense of humor was quite nice and very genuine. Our room was surprisingly large, with bright, lovely views... More

unfortunately not close to the lake but the grounds were beautiful. we had a large window looking out to the front of the house, grandly decorated inside, like a country manor. Service was excellent, always some one around to ask information from. They also served us coffee and biscuits out on the front lawn.

I stayed here with a group of walkers touring the west country of Ireland. This was our second place to stay and it was wonderful. We had just come from Cork which was much busier and this was a breath of fresh air. Just driving up to the entrance gives you a sense of peace and serenity! The room I... More

Here is all you need to know. We are on the last leg of our Ireland adventure, having left Loch Lein two days ago and we still are talking about it. It isn't so much what they get right (all the other reviews accurately cover this), it is more how they reset your expectations of what ambiance and service should... More

We only stayed a night at the Loch Lein Country House and we left wishing we had stayed for a lot longer. The place is beautiful, well maintained and extremely well located. Everything is a quick drive away. The gentleman running the place (I feel a bit bad for not remembering his name) has to be the best host we... More

We used this accommodation as a base for exploring the local region around Killarney and we are glad we stayed were we did. The room was large and clean and we had wonderful views. The wi-fi worked well and the breakfast every morning was wonderful. We got lucky one night as the guesthouse doesn't always do a dinner service and... More

We had a great stay here. We chose a lakeview room. The grounds are beautiful as is the guesthouse. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The guest house has several public rooms, including the lovely dining room for breakfast (and other meals if you choose to dine there for those). The breakfast was excellent, plenty of options and very... More

Staff and owners are so friendly and accommodating. Service and food was great! Would recommend to everyone who wants a quiet location, off the beaten path but close enough to town to drive there in 5 minutes.

This is a fabulous place. The husband and wife team who run it make you feel like family. Rooms are top notch and comfy. Lobby had the feel like you are in somebody's home. Fantastic view of the lake from many of the rooms. Paul is a wealth of information on what to do in the area and will give... More
