“Romantic and beautiful hotel in spectacular lakeside setting”
Reviewed 21 October 2011

We were welcomed and served on our visit by the owners who were always there to help. The atmosphere is like being in a large country home with all the modern amenities. The bathroom was large with a tub and walk-in shower. The room was large and beautifully appointed. The chef prepared excellent breakfasts and dinners with delicious choices and all meals were elegantly served in the dining room with a view. The location was around 5 minutes from the downtown, but the quiet location and amazing vistas were worth it. I don't know how much it cost because our 3 night stay there was included in the tour we were on, but whatever it was, it was worth it.

Loch Lein Country House thoroughly deserves all the 5* ratings it receives. Spacious rooms spotlessly clean, extremely friendly service, quiet location a short distance from Killarney, excellent breakfast, comfortable lounge. No tea/coffee making facilities but if you ask tea and coffee (plus cake!) will be brought free of charge to your room. If you have a flat tyre, Paul will even change the wheel for you! I cannot recommend it too highly.

Room Tip: Worth paying the extra to get a lake view.

We stayed at this country hotel for 2 nights on our way south. We found a very warm welcome and a nice, well equipped large room facing the lake. It has a nice relaxed atmosphere, a nice little lounge area, is beautifully clean and the grounds well kept with lovely views of the lake and the hills beyond. Breakfast was excellent but rather strangely dinner did not seem to be on offer on either night but we found a nice restaurant in Killarney where there is plenty of choice of places to eat and at Kate Kearney’s Cottage, a wonderful bustling pub at the Gap of Dunloe another night. Highly recommended as a place to stay in the Killarney area.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the lake and the mountains

Loch Lein Country House definitely deserves 5 stars. The quiet country setting is only few minutes from downtown Killarney. Our room was large & overlooked the Loch. The breakfast perfect. Everyone treated us like royalty.

The gentleman Paul who greeted us was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean with spectacular view and elegant decor. The breakfast was served with personal attention and delightful taste. The lady of the house even gave us two free pints of beer :)

The Loch Lein Country House was highly recommended, in a beautiful location away from the hubbub of Killarney. The country house, with about 30 rooms had a wonderful living room with a fireplace and comfy chairs and sofas where you could sit and visit and a wonderful view of the loch. You couldn't actually walk to the loch; it's on private property, but it's pretty for picture taking. And the cows are happy to pose for photos at the edge of the fence. The rooms were spacious, elegant, comfortable with large windows looking out on the splendid scenery. This place was a relaxing respite on a two-week tour of Ireland and Scotland. Don't expect the luxuries from a big-city hotel. No wireless internet in the rooms, no coffee in the rooms, and too few television channels. This is a genuine getaway from reality. We arrived at the end of season and the owners had decided to shut down the dining room for dinner. We had been planning on dinner in the lovely dining room our first night, and so were disappointed to have to leave to go find a restaurant. Oh well. The Golden Nugget is just down the street and has fine bar food and lots of televisions.

My husband and I stayed at Loch Lein Country House for 4 nights. It was right in the middle of our 15 day trip around the Southwest of Ireland and it was the perfect place to stay and relax. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable and the views of the lake and countryside are amazing.

Paul and Annette are wonderful hosts…friendly, helpful and a delight to talk to. The breakfast was very tasty and the menu had many choices to choose from…our favorite the house special omelet. You could sit at the dining room all morning just admiring the view.

The guesthouse is located a short drive from Killarney’s beautiful town center, so it's easy to get to. The town center has many places to shop and great pubs.

Loch Lein was our favorite accommodation during our trip. We highly recommended.

Room Tip: Request a room with lake view.
