The Loch Lein was a friendly and inviting place. Annette, Paul and the whole staff were fantastic. Lovely rooms, quaint bar and an excellent dinning room. Whether it was breakfast or dinner the food was first class. When the time comes to travel back to Ireland the Loch Lein Country House will be on the itinerary.

Loch Lein is the only place to stay when in Killarney!! We have stayed there for 2 years to cycle the annual Ring of Kerry charity cycle and each year we book Loch Lein for the following year as we check out! It's home from home and Paul even got up very very early to have breakfast ready for us... More

We arrived at Loch Lein after a very long journey from Chicago (27 hours due to delays and cancellations) and were a bit down having missed our time in Kilkenny. The folks at Loch Lein went out of their way to welcome us. Our room was perfect, quiet and comfortable, the view of the lake superb and the service second... More

The accommodation were wonderful and that was just the beginning of it. Anne and Paul were the best host full of exceptionally hospitable people we encountered on out 8 nights through Ireland. They went out of their way to make our stay extraordinary. We were scheduled for 2 night and added an additional 2 night. They provided many great recommendations... More

This deserves more than a five star rating, it's a great place with amazing people. The location is perfect and it's in the center of everything. It's also right on the lake. The rooms were just perfect for anything! Everything about it was excellent!

Our family of five spent a night here on a drive around Ireland.The setting is beautiful and relaxing, food delicious, and hosts focused on optimizing the guest experience. The location is perfect to begin the ring drive, as well as to visit the national park. Will stay here again.

We stayed in Loch Lein during our holiday and enjoyed all the creature comforts and more. The spotless facility is beautifully located in a peaceful setting with views of the mountains and a lake with just a few minutes drive from the city center. The service is excellent from the moment the car drives into the lot. The staff is... More

We stayed two nights here part of a nine night trip around southern Ireland. The room was lovely, at the end of the first floor with a bit of a view of the lake. Breakfast was great, a good choice of hot, all cooked fresh, and cold. We had a meal the second evening as it was our wedding anniversary.... More

My wife and I stayed at Loch Lein Country House, near Killarney for 3 nights in early June. We were astounded by the beautiful location, overlooking the large Loch Lein in Killarney Park. The House itself is very tastefully decorated, with a sweeping staircase to the second floor, a sitting parlor for tea, and outdoor tables. Our room had a... More
