Stayed here for one night on Sat 21st Feb 2015 with wife and friends for a birthday drink in Killarney. I live near enough to this town but had no knowledge of the hotels. I read the reviews from previous travellers and decided that the Fairview was the one. It is perfectly located in the heart of Killarney enabling you... More

Only intended to stop for one night and ended up there for the week. We stayed in the converted house 200m up from the hotel as it was full when we first arrived. The staff were friendly, helpful and very accomodating with breakfast, the toasted soda bread was like no other. Loved it.

Very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in a Junior Suite. The room was large and very comfortable and nicely decorated; very relaxing! The bathroom was the cleanest I have seen in a long while - gleaming!! The breakfast was superb with plenty of variety! A good location within easy walking distance of restaurants and music bars. A public car... More

great hotel in main area of Killarney. Hotel is in great condition and very well run. Great breakfast as well. You know how there are always a lot of sights of wear and tear? Not here. Everything is looked after carefully by Les Moore the manager and he is constantly busy. Only down side is street noise.

Sweet and well kept hotel, close to parking and city center. Good price via Hotels.com. Very pleased with stay, the only (very minimal) complaint would be that we only got one set of shampoo and shower gel. Would stay again and would recommend.
