“Fabulous Hotel - stunning views”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

We stayed here for a well deserved break from the smallies! We stayed in the original part of the hotel. The bedroom was huge, imaculate and had a balcony. Only gripe is that these rooms really do need to be upgraded. Pine furniture just doesnt cut it for me and I guess people expect a flat screen tv etc. That said, cleanliness is a huge thing for me, and the room was spotless with a stunning view onto the lake. It doesnt get much better. This hotel has a lovely old world feel to it.....serves gorgeous guinness in the bar....compared to acrid pints served in certain pubs in town....the staff are very friendly. The toasted sandwiches in the bar were great...and the food in the restaurant was very nice too. This hotel gives you good value for your buck...and we prefer somewhere like the Lake Hotel which has lots of character. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the new extension rather than the original building

This is a beautiful hotel tucked away in woodland and on the shore of a tranquil lake. this place is magical and has great character. first thing in the morning there were 7 wild deer down by the lake. you will not forget your stay here. make sure you get a room with a view of the lake.

We stayed here in November 2011 for our anniversary, we stayed in one of the amazing Roman themed rooms.
We enjoyed everything from the lovely views of the Kilarney Lakes to the out door hot tub.
All the staff we dealt with were very friendly.

Room Tip: Would recommended trying one of the themed rooms the hotel has to offer.

Myself and my boyfriend have stayed in this hotel 3 times and i thought it was about time i wrote a review. Firsly the views are just magical, on our first visit while out on the bacony a deer came in full view, we were so fascinated we stayed out there ages . We stayed in the master deluxe twice and the four poster lake view once. Both are fantastic rooms. Rooms are very spacious and have a jacuzzi. Slippers and bath robes provided. The Breakfast is great- a real irish breakfast and much more, the breakfast room is also over looking the lake which is lovely. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone especially for people looking to a romantic weekend away together.

Room Tip: Make sure to book a room with a lake view!

I go to Killarney two or three times a year and this is where I chose to stay if im with my girlfriend for the weekend. Its a little further along the Muckross hotel then others so not so good if you want to walk home after a night out. Its perfect for couples, less facilities then some for kids.

Positives
The location is a massive plus though right on Muckross Lake a few minutes walk away from the park.
The restraunt food is very good.
The Hotel is family run. Three brothers from what I can tell and their all very friendly, down to earth and helpful. Like most family run businesses you get the feeling their more genuine in wanting to make your stay a happy one.
This attitude follows though to the staff who are friendly.
Its an older hotel in good condition with characther and charm that newer hotels dont have.
The common areas are really nice and inviting.
Theres a computer room with 3 free to use pc's.
Sometimes you can see deer on the beautiful lakeside grounds.

Negatives
Wifi is only available in the areas near the lobby and computer room.
No swimming pool, though there is a tennis court.
No air conditioning but not really needed in Ireland anyhow.

Room Tip: The woodland view rooms overlook the carpark and arent really special. Its worth paying the extra fo...

We were booked into the hotel for only two nites at first, but after seeing our room and the surrounds of the hotel we added one more night...beautiful four poster bed, great breakfast, lovely dinner, the staff was darling, espescially Steven, the bar man...(still needs to find me a stuffed puffin).. And Michael, one of the owners who is as avid as my husband as a photog, each day gave us a complete map and itinerary of where to find best shots...

It was November, off season, and that made it even more special...Very hard to leave, but we will be back with our sons soon! Loved it! The Gunns from USA

Room Tip: Ask for the four poster suites looking over the water!
