Wow.. what a find. Perfectly located in the center of town. Lovely hosts. You can book in from about 3:30pm, however, I arrived early and they offered to hold my luggage. Big beautiful, luxurious rooms. I had the superior room. The hotel is spotlessly clear, big luxurious bathrooms... even in the superior room. I was offered an upgrade to an... More

Very comfortable stay at the Fairview. Breakfast was lovely and plenty of choice. Did not feel rushed at all. Les, who served us, had a great gentle humour and made us feel as though we were guests in his own home.

This is the second occasion we stayed in the Fairview Guesthouse in Killarney & we couldn't fault the place. The location is perfect, the room was a good size & clean (although the shower door was broke). The breakfast was delicious, cooked to order & service was prompt & once again the staff were very friendly. Would highly recommend the... More

It had great service. The staff were very nice and helpful. It seemed quite homely because it was smaller than other hotels. It was very helpful because it was close to the venue for the Irish dancing worlds (which was the reason for our trip). It was situated in the centre of town making it the perfect location for going... More

The Fairview was the perfect spot to stay in Kilarney and the staff were some of the kindest, most accommodating people we met on our trip. The room was spectacular and had a view to boot! Highly recommended!! P.S. the breakfast was delicious!

Location was in the middle of Killarney so very nice for walking around at night. The free breakfast was awesome and very high class. The room was one of the nicest we stayed in while in Ireland. Was priced fairly too.

We require wheelchair accessible accommodation, complete with a roll-in shower. The Fairview had all the amenities we required. It is unusual for us to stay in anything other than a large hotel, so this was a special treat. The location is fabulous as we could walk/wheel all around the downtown. We were close to all the pubs and restaurants. The... More

We spent 2 nights at the fairview in April. We got a warm welcome as we entered the old style cosy hotel, kept in lovely condition and nice and clean. The room was lovely (Junior suite), with wooden floors, comfortable beds and a Jacuzzi bath with a great shower. We also had a lovely breakfast to choose from in the... More
