Fabulous hotel in fabulous location. A fairy tale place with great views, food & ambiance. Unique and not a clone like so many hotels are these days. A must if you're visiting Killarney and not too far from town centre

I wanted somewhere to take my wife that had views over a lake, mountains, a four poster bed and an outside hot tub and this ticked all the boxes.

Touring Ireland in August and stayed for one night only but plan to return for a longer stay. This is a fabulous hotel in every respect in a beautiful location. Try the Roman themed room!!!. Surprised it's not rated a 5 star hotel.

We spent three days in May, best hotel service, the staff were really friendly and helpful, the buffet breakfast and dinners were also perfect. Very clean, relaxing, quiet, stunning views of the lake and mountains, Definitely deserves 5 stars.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights with my husband and 3 children . I could not recommend this hotel enough for its outstanding views , friendly and helpful staff and gorgeous food. It is a very child friendly hotel and my kids really enjoyed playing tennis and wandering around the grounds .
