We have stayed at the Lake hotel on several occasions. It had been a number of years since our last visit, so we were dying to get back. Our most recent visit was as nice as ever. Firstly, the scenery is breathtaking. If you pay a bit extra for a superior lakeside room, you really have done yourself a huge favour. The hotel is on Lough Leane, and the stunning mountains are a wonderful backdrop also. The hotel was busy on our stay because there was a party of around 100 hillwalkers staying there for a full week. This meant that the main restaurant was booked out, and other guests ate in an anteroom at the back of the restaurant, or were served restaurant food in the bar. Anyway, it didn't matter. The service was still as efficient and cordial as ever. Nothing is too much of a problem for the staff here. They are so polite and obliging. As for the food in the bar (bistro) and the restaurant, it was stunning. I had a rib eye steak from the restaurant and it was beyond compare. I ate every pick of it. My wife was also very impressed with the food. The breakfast service is great too and the food lovely. For our three nights B&B including one dinner for two, it came in at around €450. It's not cheap, but most of Killarney is pricey. On this trip, we decided to have fun on one of the rainy days by taking a mini tour of other hotels in Killarney. We had a cup of tea or a soft drink in about 7 other hotels. Some of them were nice, but none of them are as nice as the Lake Hotel. No hotel can boast the stunning view or the old world charm that the Lake Hotel boasts. Needless to say we shall return, and will be encouraging our friends to take advantage of a little piece of heaven too
