Fantastic hotel with wonderful staff. With some amazing weather we sat outside in the bar for most of the afternoon. We decided to eat there as well, and the food was very nice. My wife had the beef which was full of flavour with a delicious mash and I went with the fish and chips. The batter was nice and... More

The Europe is one of my absolute favourite hotels, I've stayed 2 or 3 times and it never fails to impress. The decore is so chic and contemporary, I love the lobby areas and the library in particular. The spa is probably the best I've ever experienced, it really it world class. Framed by the picturesque views of the Lakes... More

Just back from hotel europe having frequented it for many years, but not since the renovation was completed. Absolutely fabulous hotel. Fantastic makeover. Warm and comfortable. Situated on an amazing site overlooking the lakes, with beautifully kept grounds and amazing view. Warm welcome by a member of staff who is working at the Europe almost 40 years. Very friendly and...

I visited with my husband for a weekend break. We had a lake view room and the views were well worth the extra money. The room was very spacious and had every amenity I'd expect from a 5 star hotel. Lots of nice areas downstairs to enjoy a quiet drink. Breakfast was lovely, great choice and a funky pancake making... More

Fantastic hotel and views that cant be beaten. However it was too hot in the hotel and also in the room, this definetely needs to be addressed. The breakfast was beautiful, the staff very friendly and will definetely return. Would be nice to have tea facilities in the room also.

I returned to the Europe with my Mother and Sister for an overnight stay on Mother's Day. As always the welcome was warm and not at all pretentious. The hotel was very busy with overnight guests checking out and people lunching, we were checked in by Miriam who had organised a triple room for us. When our room was ready... More

What a fantastic hotel with fantastic staff who just get huge enjoyment pampering their guests. My only complaint was when checking out, my bill had over €125 of additional charges that were not mine. This issue was addressed with speed but no apology! I was looked at as if I was the one who had done something wrong... Pity.

Having stayed in this hotel for over 40 years this was the first time to stay since the hotel had major renovations. It was always 5star and nothing has changed. The staff were very helpful and efficient and the restaurant staff very friendly. The dining room very comfortable but missed the atmosphere not the same as the old decor. Overall... More

I recently (March '14) visited the Europe spa using their 2 Night Experience deal. I chose this over other hotels in Killarney due to the reviews and location. I was not let down. When we arrived the staff were nicely attentive and held a welcoming smile. Throughout the stay they were always polite and nothing was too much bother. A... More

Absolutely fabulous! The Spa and thermal suite are out of this world. The staff are more than helpful, I have never seen such a high standard of service. We had a fantastic stay, our expectations were truly surpassed & we are already looking forward to another stay in paradise in the future! Thank you.
