We stayed in the Europe for a weekend break and it was just fabulous! The pool, indoor/outdoor jacuzzi and salt water pool were a real treat. What made the stay really special was the high level of coeliac awareness and excellent dining options for my gluten free husband. He was utterly spoiled. The Europe in my new favourite hotel in...

After a 5 hour drive to get to this hotel, all we wanted to do was check in and get to our room. Reception staff were welcoming and friendly and asked us if we had a long journey. We were given a hot flannel for our hands and asked if we would like any help with our bags. As this... More

We spent 3 nights at The Europe Hotel and we were not disappointed. The setting of the hotel is breathtaking with a view that you would never tire of. The hotel from the outside is not that impressive but the interior makes up for it with spacious, luxurious lounge areas, a library, bar, shop and great eating facilities. The SPA... More

The service was impeccable, and the stay was incredibly comfortable. Everything was highly enjoyable: food, spa, bike hire, general friendliness. Podraig at the Concierge provided invaluable suggestions and local tips, and was helpful and warm. The spa treatment was the best I have ever had, particularly Valerie. All the staff were wonderful, and I was impressed with the executive chef... More

My mom fell in love with the property the second we stepped out of the car. The hotel is a blend of modern, clean lines with rich colors on the interior. The receptionist Patrick was downright adorable. Very knowledgeable about day trips and other excursions. However, I was some what unimpressed with my spa experience. When I had my massage,... More

Relaxing on our oversized balcony, enjoying views of the lake, sun rises, sun sets and wildlife. A super home base for day trips to challenging, nearby golf courses like Tralee and Waterville. Hotel staff is very accommodating. The hotel design and construction is second to none. Every room is sold but we feel privacy and pampering. We also had a... More

We stayed two nights the past weekend and when you drive up you don't realise how special it is inside. The lobby is just breathtaking with the amaxing view of the lake. Our lake view room was lovely. There are two bars, one really modern (and as my boyfriend described it "girlie") and one lounge bar which is old country... More

This is simply one of the best hotels you will find anywhere. I have been staying in this wonderful property since 1979 and it gets better and better every year. The scenery, even on a 'soft' Irish day is incomparable. The decor is classic contemporary. The service is second to none. Food is modern and professionally served. The Spa, Fitness... More

First class all the way - our welcome was warm and friendly, the staff was knowledgable and helpful. Our rooms (two deluxe - one with king, one with two doubles - with extra bed in each) for our family of 6 were beautifully appointed and spacious. We opted for open windows and no balcony to allow for more interior space... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the shores of Lough Lein, The 5 Star Europe Hotel and Resort has been welcoming guests for over fifty years and has reopened after a 70m face lift which includes the stunning 4,600 sq.m. spa called ESPA at The Europe. From the moment you cross the threshold of the hotel you step into another world. A magnificent two story atrium with glass doors leads onto a garden terrace with a view of the lake and the mountains beyond which leaves you breathless. ... more   less
