The Fairview was our choice (two adults, two young people) for four days in Killarney and the surrounding area. Our family loved it for: friendly, helpful staff; comfortable, spotless accommodation; hearty breakfasts. Situated in the heart of Killarney, extremely convenient to all the amenities that this vibrant town has to offer. Our room was at the back of the hotel... More

Stayed last week, beautiful hotel, very clean, updated decor. We had a great room with beautiful view of the city. A little noisy, but not too bad. Bed wasn't too comfortable, very soft and we like a firmed bed. The only king bed we stayed in all week in Ireland that you could tell was 2 twins and wasn't comfortable... More

This is a great choice for a centralized home-base if you want to play a variety of local golf courses. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast service is superb. There are a variety of room configurations with high-end ememities.

12 of us stayed here for our big golfing trip to Southwest Ireland. Stayed at the Fairview for three nights. It was wonderful. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, great people and a good breakfast each morning. Pretty quiet considering it is in the middle of the town center. But it is close to everything. Highly recommend it.

Decent place to stay if you're visiting Killarney. Got family room for myself & two kids. Room was basic enough, but the jacuzzi bath was a definite hit with the kids. Easy walk (2-3 mins!) into the middle of town. Staff very good, breakfast good but crowded. Not a cheap place to stay, but given the overall prices in Killarney,... More

The hotel is pretty central for evening social life. Delicious breakfast beautifully prepared. The. Bedroom however was fairly basic and the bed and pillows were pretty uncomfortable. Free Parking is available (6.00pm to 8.30am) at a local parking lot just 100 meters from the hotel.

Had a wonderful time , stayed just up the road in the Copper Kettle which is an extension of the Fairview - beautiful room with lovely bathroom opposite car park that costs just 3 euros to park all day and night , full irish breakfast in the mornings was spot on and the location couldn't have been better in order...

Loved every minute - go for the penthouse. Breakfast can be a bit crowded so schedule a time! We loved the view and the staff was wonderful! The breakfast is totally worth it - both healthy and decadent options!

A beautiful and moderatly priced hotel, very elegant, very comfortable and perfectly located in the centre of town. Excellent service and a fantastic breakfast which is included. The advice on a daytrip given by Les resulted in a most enjoyable day for us - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this hotel and would love to come back.

The Fairview is a boutique hotel in the heart of Killarney which is moderately priced. The rooms are comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was terrific and there was free parking and wifi. Centrally located. Would stay there again.
