Loch Lein Country House
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Fossa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 October 2013

If you are looking for peace and tranquility in a setting that is idyllic with hosts that are the opitimy of Irish hospitality then Loch Lein Country House has it all.
We have stayed many times in and around Killarney, including the 5 star hotels, but we keep returning to Loch Lein because for service, quality and attention to detail we haven't found anywhere to match.
Annette and Paul make everyone welcome and it is their personal touches that make the difference as can be seen from the reviews they get.

Our group stayed at Loch Lein Country House this past September. The rooms were nicely decorated, very clean and spacious. The grounds are beautiful and I wish we would have had time to walk around the area. There is much to explore. There are many sites to visit close to Loch Lein so you can visit the Irish countryside and easily return to the comfort of Loch Lein. We had two breakfasts and one dinner there and even though we were a fairly large group, we were given menu choices. In addition to all the things I mentioned above, for me, the best part was the gracious family that own and run this country house. They made all of us feel so welcome. They truly represent the kindness of the Irish people well. If you are going to be in the Killarney, Ireland area, I strongly encourage you to stay at the Loch Lein Country House.

Perfect location if staying in Killarney area; convenient and easy to do many different day trips from or just to explore Killarney with all its attractions.Terrific hosts, great food and outstanding service; fabulous, spacious and very clean, modern rooms with stunning views (on one of the Killarney lakes). Loch Lien is first class in all respects and one of the very best guesthouses in Ireland (and my wife and I have we have stayed in quite a few as this was our fifth trip to Ireland). Paul and Annette were gracious, very helpful during the three days we were their guests and we will expect to always return to Loch Lien whenever we are in Killarney. It is definitely not your average guesthouse and very deserving of its excellent reputation.

The Country House is actually located on a beautiful lake outside of Kilarney. Our room was extremely large, with a grand sitting area and view out onto the lake. The queen bed was comfortable and breakfast included eggs to order or a "full Irish breakfast." But what made the place extra special was the welcoming and friendly attitude of the hosts. When we inquired where we could get a windshield wiper for our rental car they offered to check it for us. They then cleaned the windshield of some resistant grime and said a wiper wasn't needed. When we offered to pay for the service they declined. The City of Kilarney is charming, but for a relaxing, welcoming stay, Loch Lein can't be beat.

Room Tip: Ask for lake view

My husband & I were traveling with a group from the USA and stayed two nights in September, 2013 at Loch Lein. Our room was wonderful; very roomy, clean, & comfortable. The dinner and breakfasts were also wonderful with very personalized service. We wished we could have stayed longer there to enjoy the quiet and the beautiful scenic surroundings.

We stayed at the Loch Lein Country House two nights. It is a country setting, so the nights were quiet. The rooms were lovely and very up-to-date. We had breakfast both days and one dinner. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. We were treated as valued guests. This stay was a real treat!

We came upon this wonderful county inn by chance, and how fortunate were we. Paul and Annette treated us like royalty and made us all feel very special. They run this establishment extremely proficiently, and everything is 'just right'. The rooms are great, the food fantastic, and the setting is breathtaking, looking onto the Louch Leane waterfront itself. Well done to you both. We hope to return one day.
