. Rooms lovely, if you can excuse the noise from next door. Found it odd that you could have an omelette for breakfast in your room but not in the dining room. Would say that was the only thing letting them down. Would like a pancake or omelette choice for breakfast. Our evening meal was superb and I can be...

Really nice hotel! Had the room with the hot tub which was great to relax. Staff were really lovely to deal with. Saw loads of deer from our balcony and our walk around the lake on the grounds. Only flaw...little overpriced with minimal amenities.

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay here. Close enough to Killarney, but you don't feel like you're in the hustle bustle of the town. Great walking/running trails nearby, which is good because the gym is very minimal with very limited equipment. Hotel restaurant is good. Muckross Estate is less than 1 mile away, not to be missed!

Its such a charming hotel...the old world wood floors, a colonial bar, with antique chests and nick-knacks, old chandeliers. Its one of those places that slows down time and allows you to reconnect with yourself. I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. I could probably do a week every year in this hotel sitting outdoors and staring at the lake....

Splendid dining in November; window seats, looking out at McCarthy Mór's castle in the fading light. Great variety of game, fish and steaks. Our selections done to perfection. Attendance by Olivia and Anthony was well judged and discreet. A memorable evening.

I've stayed her 5 times both with and without kids. It's a beautiful hotel with lovely ground and amazing service. Got a suite once (not cheap but worth it when I could afford it).
