Hard to know where to start praising this great hotel. It is tucked away in a lovely location and looks down on to an impressive lake and surrounding countryside. The grounds of the house itself are lovely and takes you back to another time with all the exotic plants and trees. The building is lovingly kept and the adjacent 'coach... More

This is the most amazing place that I have ever stayed. The rooms were very well appointed. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was wonderful. The food for dinner and breakfast were just amazing. Now on to the location! The view and grounds were just breathtaking.

Ard na Sidhe is in a fantastic location by a lakeside and the views from the house are wonderful. We had a garden room in the annex, which was modern and very comfortable with a terrace for sitting out. The extensive grounds are perfect for a pre-dinner stroll down to the lakeside. We had a drink before dinner in the... More

Travelled to ard na sidhe after spending two days in Co Cork, the hotel is reasonably sign posted from killorlgin to its remote setting. The hotel and setting is simply amazing, on arrival we took a walk around its grounds all the way down to carragh lake where the hotel has it's own dock and rowing boats. Everything about this...

What a lovely romantic country manor-turned-hotel. It's quite small with only 10 main rooms and 8 annex rooms, which we stayed in for a night after doing full day Ring of Kerry. It's "in" Killorglin but actually far from the town and right beside Lake Caragh, which gives it its strong romantic appeal. The rooms are large, with a cute... More

We stayed at this spectacular hotel for only one night, wishing we had booked it for longer. The setting on Lake Caragh is wonderful, secluded, and featuring some of Ireland's most beautiful scenery in the area. The gardens are majestic! Rooms are large, with large beds, and bathrooms apportioned with the finest ceramic and metal features. Breakfast was delicious and... More

Came here for 2 nights on my second 10 day trip around Ireland. This was hands down my favorite hotel we stayed and I rave about it to anyone that asks about my trip. It was romantic and remote, but not so far from town as to be inconvenient. The views were spectacular, the room was immaculate and romantic, and... More

This is a solid 4-star hotel. We stayed in the main house in one of the larger rooms. The bed is comfortable, the room clean, lovely white duvet covers, small sitting area, fireplace with large candle glowing. There is a wonderfully deep clawed foot soaking tub, heated floor and nice bath products and robes. The setting on the lake is... More

We booked ourselves into this beautiful century old country manor for five days so that we could explore the Ring of Kerry and other neighboring sights. Ard Na Sidhe lived up to all our expectations and more. It has extensive gardens and a huge lake with many walks to discover the grounds and activities like boating. It was lovely just... More

Beautiful old manor house set in lovely gardens, with trails out along the lake to stroll. I even saw a 6 point stag. The room was spacious, clean, plenty of plugs to recharge electronics. The restaurant served a huge hot breakfast and the dinner was elegant. Afterwards we sat in the drawing room for a harp concert. It was a... More
