“Awesome Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2012

Well what I can I say that has not already been said, this place is amazing.
We had planned to stay 2 Nights with the option of a third. We ended up spending 5 Nights here.
This place really felt like home.

I had originally booked a room with a lake view, but because i added an extra night (then another 2) we ended up staying in a room with a partial lake view. This was not Anette's fault but my own because i did such a late a booking (actually the first night we had arrived without a reservation). Helpful Anette accommadted us without hesitation.

The rooms are spotless, huge and most definitely the best lighting in any hotel i have ever stayed. If there is one thing that annoys me about hotels it is the dark rooms. This room (106) was so well lit.
There was a lovely sitting area in our room as well.
The view from our room - although only partial lake view was still amazing.
Our bathroom was beautiful. Shower was a bit on the small side, but the water pressure was amazing and the water temp too. It stayed consistent throughout the shower. To often water temp dips or the pressure is inconsistent, but not here.
We also had a bath in the bathroom and the vanity area around the sink was spacious.

The property is spectacular. The gardens are neat and well kept

Although a drive from Killarney - about 10min, it is still worth staying here. Just for the peace and quiet and the warmth of this hotel

The only negative, and this is NOT a make or break, was the limited TV channels, however one is on holiday and out most of the day, so it is not an essential and once again does not detract from the BEST HOTEL we stayed at on our trip of two weeks.

There is absolutely no doubt as to where you should stay when staying in the Killarney area. This place gets 10 in my books

We did the Dingle Peninsula, Ring of Kerry and Ring of Beara from here. It was a comfortable day trip for all three excursions.

We recently held a family celebration in Loch Lein Country House hotel. We had such a fantastic time thanks to Paul and Annette and everything that they did for us. They really went over and above the call of duty in helping us to organise the event and it made the day all the more special for it.

In addition to the party celebrations our overall stay in Loch Lein was excellent. We were allocated a huge room on the ground floor with stunning views out towards the lake, it was great to have such a big room as we had our little girl with us. Paul and Annette also arranged a babysitter for us on the night of the party so we were able to relax and enjoy the celebrations.

The hotel is in a beautiful setting and the rooms are all immaculate and well kept. The breakfast is delicious with lots of fresh produce and beautifully cooked. All the staff are extremely attentive and we were very looked after so well.

I would highly recommend Loch Lein for anyone staying in the Killarney area.

Thank you Paul and Annette for everything!

Thank you both Annette and Paul for looking after us so well! We enjoyed our weekend at Loch Lein very much. We enjoyed all the extras and personal service as mentioned by other reviewers here. Annette made reservations for us in restaurants she recommended to us, Paul gave us lots of information and tips on where to visit and the tea and cake we received after returning from a day out sightseeing was really appreciated! The hotel is just like in the picture with beautiful views. It is also very peaceful and tranquil as it is off the main road so there is no traffic. Our room was a suite really with views of the lake, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The dining room also has views of the lake and is a lovely room. There was plenty of choice for breakfast with freshly prepared cooked options, which you won't get in many larger hotels these days. I will definitely be staying in Loch Lein again.

Loch Lein House is a terrific place to stay if you are visiting the Killarney area. It is set on beautiful grounds and offers great views. The staff members are all tremendous. It is evident from the moment one sets foot on the property what pride the folks there take in their work. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and more than willing to help us with anything we needed. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

We rate our experience here excellent++! As we drove into the drive, we were greeted by beautiful lake vistas, gorgeous landscapes, an amazing hotel and our gracious host! Our room was spectacular with views of the lake and mountains. The bathroom was luxurious!! (Wish we could live here!!) Service was tops! Dinner in the restaurant was superb as was the breakfast! Our wish was their command! A wonderful place!! Ring of Kerry nearby, too!

We were fortunate to stay at Loch Lein Country House for a few nights in September. Paul and Annette were fabulous hosts. Our room was spacious and very nice with an absolute beautiful view of the river. The hospitality extended to us was so welcoming and definitely appreciated. Paul was very helpful with our questions about where to go and his suggestions were spot on. Breakfast and dinner was delicious! We wish we could have stayed longer to just enjoy the amenities of Loch Lein Country House more! We definitely recommend this as a must stay while vacationing in Killarney!

Our one night stay here was fabulous. The location is quiet, but with a beautiful view of the lake. I took a morning walk along the lake which was very enjoyable. The staff was so helpful with dinner recommendation in Killarney and directions. Breakfast was excellent. We were on a 19 day trip in the U.K./Ireland and our room here was one of the best anywhere. If you are traveling in this part of Ireland, I highly recommend you stay at Loch Lein Country House.
