Dont be fooled by the title "guesthouse", this is more like a luxurious 4* hotel. The rooms are beautiful - for as little as 30euro per night with breakfast and the penthouse is amazing for as little as 65euro per night with breakfast. It is also within a few seconds walk of the town - just around the corner from it. Highly recommended!

This is classified as a guesthouse but is actually more luxurious than some hotels. Proprietor does not show the ususal Irish courtesy of acknowledging your presence when you arrive or leave during the duration of yourstay, preferring to pay his whole attention to the interminable telephone calls he is on. Small thing, but politeness and friendliness is a small courtesy that makes life more pleasant. Biggest issue was the heating in the room, it was freezing during the day, then during the night the air-conditioning so dehydrated the atmosphere I lost my voice(!) with no way to control it. Breakfast was good with friendly staff.

There is no shortage of accomodation in Killarney so we would not stay there again.

Four stars is not enough for this excellent guesthouse. We spend 2 weeks travelling throughout Ireland, and this accomodation is by far the best in the country. This accomodation is absolutely spotless. This is by far the cleanest place I have ever stayed in. Every single aspect of our stay was perfection. The service was extraordinary. Food delicious. Great location. Comfortable beds. Spotless rooms.
Great value. We would highly recommend this accomodation.

I stayed at the Fairview in October 2010 and was very pleased. The hotel has an excellent location--within easy walking distance of the train station and the city center. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very clean. The staff are professional and helpful. A hearty and fresh breakfast was included. If I return to Killarney, I will certainly stay at the Fairview again.

We actually tried to ring the bell of a nearby B&B but when there is nobody there the bell rings in the Fairview as the couple own both. The owner came round to the B&B to get us and was extremely friendly. He gave us an amazing deal as it's not peak season. Huge, beautiful room with a huge, beautiful bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and large separate shower unit. Breakfast was included. Good choice of cereal, fruit, yoghurt, juice and bread as well as whatever cooked meal you want including a full Irish. We had a very relaxing stay, the service was excellent and the location is perfect, couldn't get any more central.
