This hotel is ideally located almost in the center of Killarney, close to all pubs, restaurants and shops. The staff are most welcoming and helpful, spotlessly clean throughout. Although the hotel does not have its own car park you can park in a public car park one minutes walk away where €3 gives you 24 hour parking. Can highly recommend... More

Absolutely delighted with our last minute decision to stay at the Fairview!! Stayed in room 209 which is a junior suite. Have to say it was the most comfortable bed I have ever stayed in, didn't want to leave it. The bathroom featured a jacuzzi bath which was so relaxing. Breakfast was delicious, with a wide choice of options to... More

After a neighbouring award-winning five star hotel messed up our booking we were left in Kerry with a dog and no accommodation. I called the Fairview and with great relief found a room for my friend, my pup and me. On arrival I was offered a room with a door into an enclosed yard for my pup to roam. Aside... More

Fantastic hotel. My wife and I stayed in the Fairview for a long weekend to tour the Ring of Kerry. A great hotel with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Good location being walking distance to bars and restaurants. Excellent Irish breakfast to kick start your day. A big thank you to Les who looked after is very well.

Stayed at the Fairview for 6 days, 5 nights. It was absolutely perfect. The breakfast (included) was delicious!! It was cooked to order every day and was a great way to start a day of sightseeing. The Fairview is located right in the middle of everything so dinner at pubs is easy. Our room was spacious and immaculate. Lots of... More

I have stayed here on 3 previous occasions and the place feels 5* without the 5* prices. The owner/manager couldn't be more helpful. There is a drop-off area outside and a large car park about 1 minute away (I am a slow walker!) The room i was allocated 2 weeks ago was the most impressive Penthouse room and it was... More
