The lake hotel is definitely worth visiting while In Killarney, the chowder was perfect and the steak was up there with one of the nicest I've had , the hotel is only a two minute drive from the centre of Killarney and only ten minutes from torc waterfall.

From Check In to Check Out I found this hotel to be amongst the best I have stayed at in any country. The receptionists were so welcoming. My room , a Superior Lake View Double was huge and well laid out. The View lived up to the word! Beautiful. I like a power-shower and the shower had lots of power!!
The Bar staff were attentive and great with recommendations. Both staff in both the Bistro and main Restaurant were superb and very engaging. I was staying with my family for a family occasion and the hotel management provided little extras like a room for family photographs. Every effort was made to help the occasion run smoothly.
The food in both restaurants was local and superb. The seafood was very special, as it should be in this part pf the world.
It is a credit to the hotel that some of the original House has been preserved in style and historical displays. Old style doesn't mean old fashioned as this place is run to a very modern standard - a timeless standard!
I look forward to recommending this hotel to friends.

Room Tip: My Superior Lake View room was great. Arrive to breakfast before 9:45am at the weekend to avoid a last-minute queue.

Myself and boyfriend stayed here last week for two nights. It was absolutely brilliant. The staff, the food, the interior, exterior, facilities, breathtaking views, the whole lot were absolutely fabulous!!

We were supposed to check in between 11-12pm but for some reason there was a mix up in communication and our room wasn’t going to be ready until normal check in which was 3pm. I never made a fuss we were happy to eat lunch there and then head off for the ring of Kerry while waiting .

Upon our arrival we were greeted at reception telling us we had been upgraded to a lake view room and our very own jacuzzi. I believe this was the master deluxe room. We were thrilled ! And our bags were already up in our rooms.

They went the extra mile and all staff are so friendly and helpful. It was great to meet the local Kerry barman Ben O Sullivan at night time after dinner and we had a great chat!

We loved every minute of it. It’s a great place for couples, families, the elderly you name it. We will DEFINITELY be returning.

One of my favourite hotels to stay in. It’s the first place I think of when I want to book somewhere to get away and relax. Rooms offering views of the lake are a must. Killarney is quite a busy little town but you feel like you’re miles away from anywhere when you stay at the Lake Hotel. The staff are always so friendly and welcoming, from the receptionists to the housekeepers. Hotel itself is so well decorated. Food is amazing in the restaurant and they will cater to your every need. They have a great selection for breakfast. Plenty of choices for those who want something healthy or if you’re like me something sweet like waffles with Nutella ! I’ve stayed here 3 times in the last year and I can’t wait for my next stay which hopefully won’t be too long away

Took the short trip to Killarney for a one night Easter getaway with my wife and young baby. First time in this relaxing hotel with great food, really attentive staff and even its own Huggard Ale which was a real treat. Location is second to none. The scenic walk to Muckross House was a great suggestion from reception, no trouble with a buggy. Would highly recommend paying the extra for a lake view room too. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Lake view room
