Our family spent two nights at Ard na Sidhe during our two week vacation in Ireland this August. Hands down, this was our favorite place. The staff was very warm and accommodating and Jennifer, the manager, was an outstanding representative of the property. Everything about the experience was memorable--the rooms had lovely views, comfortable beds and bedding, and all the... More

Exquisite property, perfect service. Idyllic. My mother and I stayed at Hotel Ard na Sidhe for two nights out of our two week trip through Ireland, and they were by far our best. After arriving late one night, the staff was more than accommodating in showing us two room choices, and then serving tea and scones to relax us from... More

We spent two weeks going around the coast of Ireland and Ard na Sidhe was the best experience of a great trip. Coming near the end, the tranquility and beauty of the house and grounds were refreshing to both the body and soul. Although County Kerry has much to offer, including the Ring and Killarney National Park, make sure to... More

We have just spent 4 nights in this lovely hotel. Faultless! Charming staff, beautiful sitting and dining rooms. The dinner and breakfast were delicious, with plenty of choice. The gardens are laid out in a series of picturesque paths, which lead down to the lake - very pretty, especially at sunset.

If anyone is staying in this part of Kerry especially for a romantic or special break I would highly recommend this hotel. The location speaks for itself and the hotel is exceptional. Room, food, service were all without fault when we stayed here. Probably a bit quiet for children, but any staying when we were there seemed to enjoy it... More

The hotel is in a restored mansion that was a romantic "folly" of a noble woman - looking much older than it is. The restoration has has been tasteful and to an extremely high standard. The hotel has a beautiful location at the lake far removed from the hustle of the world - very peaceful! (The road to it is... More

Spent a couple of nights there on our two-week summer vacation in Ireland. Really friendly staff, beautiful place and the room we had was georgious. So scenic at the lake - could spend more time there. Hard to get back to the real life. Food was excellent and evenings before the cheminee - what more would one want.
