“Beautiful top notch hotel, friendly staff, exquisite food”
Reviewed 17 July 2011

On a recommendation from a local, we checked in to The Lake Hotel, Killarney. It was a splurge but they offered a good deal with hotel & 3-course dinner combo. The back of the hotel faces the lake of Lough Lein and is a short drive to our destination, Muckross House the following morning. Spectacular setting! My husband ran along the shore while I took photographs. The dining room is also set with views to the lake, food absolutely delicious! Staff was polite and accommodating. Although a hotel with lots of rooms, it had a comfortable, cozy and friendly atmosphere about it. High quality elegant furnishings, spotless guest rooms. Can't say enough great things about it! Would definitely return & next time, arrive earlier in the day to enjoy it even more.

Room Tip: request lake view room

Amazing location with breathtaking scenery. Hotel has a real charm about it. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Stayed in a woodland view room but next time would spend the extra money for lake view. Would definitely be worth it. If you're going to Killarney stay here!

Great location - wonderful lake view. Room comfortable if a little dark. Four poster bed - interesting. Old style TV but well positioned. Tea making facilities in room. Late breakfast. Lovely lake views from bar and restaurant. Bar food good. Relaxing seating areas and comfortable library with internet access. Tennis court in front. Relaxing walking area by lake. Small gym and outdoor hot tub. Safe walking path into Killarney. Bike hire nearby-ID required. Safe cycling areas. No swimming pool. Lovely for quiet relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Had balcony room. Balcony small but view of lake good. Think I would like to try 'new part'...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two nights, the hotel staff were very friendly and the room was spacious with a lake view which was too my wives delight. The hotel also offers free internet to their guests which we used to our hearts content.

The breakfast was of a high quality and there was plenty to eat, the view at breakfast was stunning and the complimentary newspaper at breakfast made us feel at home.

This beautiful period hotel will not disappoint and the staff went out of their way to help us. My wife being pregnant required another pillow and she notified reception of this and when we arrived back in our room, her pillow was their. It's the small things in life that give you most pleasure.

A good stay will be had here and you will leave with a smile on your face.

There is no way to out do the view from our room. The service was tops. I felt like part of the gentry.
Loved it, would have spent my whole stay there if I knew! Walking and biking easy to next door National park.....old world charm, with modern conveniences....my niece lost her key four times in ine day and had replacements made with a smile each time! Thank you!

Lake Hotel is a peaceful spot to spend a few nights. Our Deluxe Lake View room in the newer section was beautifully decorated with a great jacuzzi which was fabulous after our long overseas flight. The staff was wonderful and checked us in early on our arrival day. The hotel is a great respite after a long day of touring with a charming bar and a little Irish music too. Breakfast was substantial and the dining room views are spectacular. We selected the B and B and booked online directly with the hotel. The prices for dinner and the room rates were on the higher end for our trip. It is a beautiful spot for an Ireland stay!

Room Tip: Book the newer, Deluxe rooms for the best stay.
