“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

We stayed at the Fairview for 3 nights 15th-18th November. The room was huge and the bathroom was perfectly adapted for my husband whose in a wheelchair. The staff were excellent and could not do enough to help us. The breakfast was lovely and there was a lot of choice on the menu. We have stayed in many different hotels in Killarney but the room and facilities at the Fairview are the best we have come across so far and we will definitely be returning in the future.

We stayed at The Fairview for one night Nov 15th 2013 and i must say i was well impressed.The rooms are very well maintained and so cosy.We satyed in a twin room which had very comfortable single and double beds.The bathroom was spotless and the tea and coffee provided was ample for our needs.On the saturday morning we ate a beautiful full Irish breakfast in a relaxing yet welcoming dining room.The location is also a plus for me very central to the town amenities but out of the night time noise which of course you can expect in Killarney at the weekends but we didnt hear a sound and slept like babies..The car park is situated across the street from the hotel which is so handy.So as i said at the start we will definitely be returning to The Fairview...

We stayed in the penthouse suite of the Fairview for 3 night's recently and had a wonderful time.
The room was stunning with 4 poster bed, double jacuzzi, tv in bathroom, a lovely fireplace and more. It would make you not to want to leave.

The staff are extremely friendly and polite. The breakfast was also delicious. While the breakfast room is slightly small we had no problems finding room.

Killarney town centre is literally on your doorstep. Parking is available at a cost of 3 € per 24 hours and is only 2 minutes walk.

One thing I thought was slightly excessive was room service breakfast charge at €13.00 for 2 people

All told the Fairview is a wonderful place to spend a few days in killarney.

Positive: Great stay in the Fairview, characteristic building well maintained, central location but still quiet, a la carte breakfast is not that common, good and friendly service, parking facility, overall good value.
Room for improvement: the mattress of our king bed was due for replacement, sound proofing between the rooms is rather poor although of course pending on your neighbors this could be much better (for instance you can hear the Jacuzzi’s clear)

We stayed at the Fairview Killarney Ireland for two nights in November - the 5th and 6th. We booked a twin bed room and upon arrival the manager offered a superior double, but we (my mother and I) declined. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast choices were great and the service exceptional. Definitely will stay here again.

we stayed in The Fairview in Killarney from the 8th to 11th November. We booked a superior double. When we got there we chatted to the manager and as he was giving us our key he offered an upgrade if we were interested. When he mentioned a jacuzzi bath I was thrilled.
We opted to take it as it was just €20 a night extra for a Junior Suite.
The room was fabulous and the jacuzzi bath was the best I had ever used. The entire hotel was glamorous and spotless.
It works on a Bed and Breakfast which is great as you can then sample what Killarney restaurants have to offer. The staff were friendly and efficient and were able to advise us on local restaurants that serve excellent food for reasonable prices.

I would highly The Fairview to my best friend. We plan to go back again in the new year.

Room Tip: Take an upgrade if it is available. It costs very little and is a wonderful experience.

Stayed here for 3 nights and I have to say it was great accommodation. Rooms were spotless, breakfast tasty with nice choices. I was delighted with the location, right around the corner from the main thoroughfare. Everyone who took care of us there were very nice and accommodating.
We felt very comfortable here. Thanks to all at Fairview for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room ask for one away from the front of the building, ours was near the back.
