Sadly the staff was very impatient and wanted to make us leave as soon as possible. The staff took my starter before I had finished it.... More

Having returned to Killarney after many years away the hotel europe was more enjoyable than ever. The spa is one of exceptional standards with great facilities and friendly staff. The menu was very versatile and the food was top notch. After a long walk around the grounds with the lakeside view I was so glad to fall asleep in such... More

Use the love The Europe hotel because of the amazing decor and beautiful views. Never really been too fond of the staff but the last time I was there really left a bad taste! We sat down in the brasserie on a quiet Thursday round 12pm outside. Table was dirty had to go find a waiter to order drinks. Waited... More

The Europe Hotel is a terrific five star hotel situated right on a lake in Ireland. The view from my room and from the hotel property are exceptional. The staff is very attentive and made sure I was taken care of and didn't lack for anything. For example one night there wasn't any table available in the restaurant and we... More

So we went back again to the Europe! We have been more than 20 times now and again it was just sensational. This time we were given a complimentary upgrade which was a lovely gesture for us loyal customers. No other hotel compares. The scenery, the spa, the food and the bedrooms are all exceptional. The waiters in the little... More

I was a little apprehensive bringing too young children to such an exquisite hotel. My fears were unfounded. Greeted with courtesy and excellent service at reception with both girls receiving special attention and respect.

Lake view, great restaurants, friendly staff, relaxing pools/spa, gorgeous property with extensive gardens. The hotel architecture is German / modern / minimalist which allows you to focus on the beautiful lake and mountains. Staff was always attentive. Our best meals in Ireland were at the French Brasserie. We will definitely return next time we're in Ireland.
