Loch Lein Country House
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Fossa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2011

We spent three nights last spring in this comfortable country house, in a room looking out on the beautiful garden, the lake and the hills beyond. Our hosts Paul and Annette made us feel more like guests in their home than simply hotel residents, while offering us helpful recommendations for day-trip itineraries and restaurants in Killarney – although their own proved to be one of the best. We can heartily recommend it to anyone planning a trip around Ireland.

Stayed: May 2011, travelled with family

My son (15 yrs old) and I stayed at Loch Lein, and were very pleased. Paul and Annette, and staff, go out of their way to help travelers find their way to the best that County Kerry has to offer. Service is excellent, and the overall setting is spectacular sitting as it does with a lake and mountain view. We would stay there again without hesitation

Having rather cheekily asked if we could have a loch view (having read someone else's review!), we were given the biggest room in the hotel, it was absolutely enormous, and yes, it had a lovely view of the loch! Great welcome at this hotel, and excellent evening meals both nights we were there. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Tea and coffee (and cake!) were produced on request. Delicious breakfast in a sunny dining room. Comfiest bed ever. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

We spent 5 days with my friend in Loch Lein at the middle of July. Have to say that I have travelled extensively throughout Europe but Loch Lein really stands out. It has a breathtaking location with amazing views of the Lakes (still, you should have a car), rooms were huge, the place has a really homely feeling - it was like staying with friends.

Still, despite location and the rooms what really makes Loch Lein unique is Paul and Annette. In all my travels I have never met a better pair of hotel managers. They talk to their guests, they try to make everything they can to help you, organize your trip, book taxis, restaurants and tours. It is truly they that have made this stay a unique one. Their warm smile, their sense of humor is what we took away with from this trip, and what will make us visit Loch Lein again and again. As mentioned above, it was like staying with friends - and they made it all happen.

Killarney and the west of Ireland are amazingly beautiful. It is not a cheap destination. Tours and restaurants are on the somewhat pricy side. Still the west of Ireland is amongst the most beautiful and unique places in the world. And the Irish are so friendly, with a wicked sense of humor...

The rooms are quiet and clean and have lovely views across the lake. The management are very hard working and keen to please. The breakfast is very good - including strong coffee if you ask for it.

Paul and Annette make you feel so welcome from the moment you arrive. Thanks to them both for all their kind assistance and the tasty bacon sandwich! The grounds and the views are postcard perfect, the room was spacious and all was so well maintained. The food is well done, did I mention the bacon sandwich?! Really can't say enough good things and would recommend the spot time and again.

Hotel exceeded our expectations with the quality of service and location. Owners and staff very friendly, personable and informed. Helped plan our daily activities and trips very well.Rooms were, large, laid out well and easy.
The location in front of a serene lake makes it very comfortable to just sit and watch the world go by. Breakfast selection is sumptuous and filling.

Hopefully the owners will install bathroom exhaust fans when feasible and upgrade the mattresses. Except for these minor issues recommend staying in Loch Lein very highly.
