Conveniently situated, a brisk ten minute walk to the city centre. We received a friendly welcome and were invited to take tea and cake on arrival. I was rather unsure about paying in advance but let it go. Our room was poorly furnished and rather cramped; the en suite was tiny, very little room between sink and shower, and sink... More

This Guest House is excellent value for money and ideally located right across the road from the beautiful University College Cork campus and 5mins walk from Cork city centre. The hostess was warm, welcoming, and very keen to make sure we had everything we needed. The breakfast was delicious and the rooms were cosy and - spotlessly - clean. Highly... More

Couldnt have had a better hostess. She lent us her UK adaptor as all we had was a European adapter. Breakfast was great and the rooms were clean. Would definitely return and highly recommend. -Dan Murphy

This hotel is throwback to the 70 s retro and not in a good way. It is shabby and needs a facelift . Walls are pater thin rooms very small and poorly furnished beds are allele double but are very small . Will not be back cleaning standards here are well below par .

It's been some time since we stayed at the Fairview Guest House, but we were most pleased with the facility and the full Irish breakfast. We were less than impressed with the desk person and the restraint staff. They were efficient, but not very friendly, but overall it was a most pleasant stay. If we ever return to Killarney, we...

The 'double' bed was only four foot wide, which is really a large single. When I turned around, the guy who showed me to the apartment had gone - I couldn't be bothered complaining, as it was such a kip, they weren't going to be able to do anything about it at that time. I stayed the minimum time in... More

We like this hotel very much however we were a bit lost finding the place so we called the desk for help. The help was mainly - just ask someone on the street everyone knows the Killarney House. :-) Next day we asked for directions to a local attraction, she was friendly and walked us to the street side and...

I have stayed at this B&B at least 3 times, and on all 3 occasions I thought the place was really nice. Was given a good sized room as we had lots of luggage. Bedsheets were clean and crisp and the were changed everyday. Amenities were all top of the line and hand manufactured. There is a really nice living... More
