Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We arrived before check in time but we were allowed to use the facilities while we were waiting for our room. The pools and thermal spa are amazing particularly the outside pool. The location looking over the lake and mountains of killarney are sensational. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was fabulous. We... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights 21st-24th July. An amazing hotel with wonder facilities, wonderful staff, wonderful food and absolutely wonderful views. This is probably the best hotel we have stayed in, in Ireland, slightly ahead of the Four Seasons in Dublin and Castlemartyr in Cork based on its wonderful lakeside views.

Golf side hotel room is average especially given its a five star hotel. Balcony was filthy. Food is average. Pool area is lovely. Spa area is lovely. Hotel location is excellent. Hotel grounds and view of the lake are amazing.

From the minute you step into the hotel you are met with amazing views of the lake and mountains courtesy of the full glass windows. The staff couldn't be nicer, taking our bags while we had lunch and then spa treatments. Our keys were dropped to the spa reception area so we could make our way directly from there to... More

Visited early July and we were very impressive with the standard of service, impeccable facilities and breathtakingly spectacular location. From the moment we arrived we were made feel welcome, all our needs were anticipated and we settled in immediately. It's all the little things that add up to a really great experience. We cannot wait to visit again.

Had a fantastic stay at the Europe. Staff are all lovely, they go out of there way to make your time as pleasant as possible. Views from our room were just beautiful. Spa is great, we spent a lot of time in the infinity pool and steam room. Breakfast was delicious. Can't fault anything.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights midweek recently. We really wanted to see if the hotel would be suitable as a family break hotel later in the year. As a couple, we were very impressed with the comfort levels of the room, the gardens, the communal areas and particularly the pool, sauna, steam room, gym and changing areas.... More
