What more can you ask for than views of the Lakes of Killarney, the mountains, a Castle and wild deer!! I stay in this hotel regularly and the deer rarely let me down. They are in the lake or on the grass outside you window most mornings and evenings. The Deluxe rooms are large and gorgeous, with magnificent views. The bathrooms have a whirlpool bath and a separate shower with fantastic pressure. The breakfast is normal Irish hotel fare, but you're looking out at the castle, the lake and the mountains. The bar food is very good and not too expensive. The main restaurant is "Old World" style and the food is usually of high quality. They do dinner, B & B deals that make it quite reasonable. I far prefer the Deluxe rooms to the old rooms which are quite small and a bit dated. Staff are mostly friendly, but I have met a surly barman once or twice over the years! The owner is a true gentleman - the family have run the hotel for about 100 years, so they know what it is to be hoteliers. All in all, this is one of my favourite hotels in Ireland - it's all about the view!
Choose the Deluxe rooms, 2ed or 3ed floors for best views.

Thank you for taking the time to post such a lovely warm review about your recent stay with us here at the Lake Hotel. Thank you also for choosing to stay with us regularly which we take as a great compliment to the hotel. Our family are in the Irish hotel trade for over 100 years now and we are proud to continue that tradition today and for the years to come. We are very lucky with the views from the hotel alright and of course the nature which surrounds us. The deer are a favourite with our guests as there aren’t many locations where you can pull back the curtains and see a herd of wild deer grazing outside. Thank you for your kind comments regarding our team here at the hotel. We are very proud of them as we feel that they always go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that our guests have a comfortable and memorable stay with us here in the Kingdom. I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you and your family back soon again.
