We had two nights stay at the lovely fairview . We had a junior suite which was spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated. The bathroom was large and lovely. Breakfast is nice, there's is a good selection of breads, cereals, and a hot breakfast menu. Lots of choice and the breakfast waiter is very cheerful, and friendly. No complaints whatsoever,...

We arrived to The Fairview later than expected after a long day of sight seeing and immediately felt as if we had arrived at home. The gentleman at the front desk right away greeted us and welcomed us to the hotel and town. He quickly got our rooms situated and even offered us an upgraded room. It was spectacular! The... More

Drove around Ireland on a family holiday & ended up in Killarney for a night, we didn't have a booking however they were able to take us in (very reasonable price which included breakfast). The location is great, just a short walk to shops/pubs etc & staff were very friendly & helpful. On our way out Les was able to... More

If you ever intend on going to Killarney, which is beautiful and a must, we cannot recommend enough the Fairview. The staff were fantastic, the rooms stunning and the breakfast exquisite. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and will definitely be going back in the future. Thank you so much Fairview and your team.

Rooms were clean, roomy, and comfortable. This hotel offered one of the better beds to sleep in with a soft yet firm mattress and not too soft pillows. The bathroom was nice and clean with a good tub to soak in after a cold night walking around town. There is parking down the street, less than a 5 minute walk... More

The Fairview is a gem. Best shower of all the hotels we visited. The beds were great. The check in was smooth, the place was clean and bright and the location was perfect. The reception room was charming with a fireplace and comfortable seating.
