We loved the Fairview! It was clean, quiet, close to everything by foot and we had a nice spacious room. The staff are friendly, helpful and seem genuinely happy to engage. It is a very short walk to good restaurants, pubs as well as the train station (easy to roll suitcases there). Make sure you get the breakfast - delicious... More

We had a really nice stay at The Fairview. Killarney is a nice central location with many options for restaurants, pubs, and things to do. The Fairview is centrally located and everything is easily reached by walking. Our first night in the hotel was sleepless--our room for four was tiny and we could hardly open our suitcases. Also there was... More

from the minute we stepped in the door we were treated like old friends, they were so kind and friendly and were up to date on the best places to go and see. Breakfast was silver service and it was amazing. The rooms were beautifully furnished and everything was so fresh and clean. Beds extremely comfortable and the Jacuzzi bath... More

We stayed at the Fairview for 5 nights during July 2015. It was our first visit to Ireland and we were a little apprehensive on the standard of hotels however staying at the Fairview completely put our minds at ease. The hotel is first class in every way, ideally positioned close to the town centre and we would have no... More

After a terrible experience at another local establishment we called in to see whether this place had any rooms available. We were impressed with the proximity to the town and the overall look of the building. We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff, who just couldn't do enough to accommodate us. They listened to our requirements and then happily... More

Reading the reviews for The Fairview I was expecting something fantastic. In actual fact, although it looked lovely and the people were extremely nice, it lacked comfort. It has a beautiful sitting room next to the reception but it was never used, probably because it was freezing due to the outside doors being constantly open. Likewise our bedroom was cold,... More

We stayed here for two nights on our drive through Ireland. The staff went out of their way to make out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The waiter at breakfast was specially friendly and helpful. The location was an easy walk for restaurants and pubs. I would recommend the Fairview as a great place... More

Great hotel rooms with a good size, modern furniture, excellent bathroom. Mattress on the too soft side.... Take your time for a delicious Irish breakfast. Very good and attentive service off hotel staff. Walking distance to all attractions, restaurants and night life in Killarney.
