“excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

stayed on wed 6th feburary, 2 adults and 2kids, staff were friendly and very helpfull,we stayed in a beautful big room with super king size bed with pull out sofa bed which was great for us because we had loads of space in the evening for the kids and plenty sleeping space by night,there was a fine big tv in the room and a gas fire, the bathroom was massive with a jacuzzi bath and a huge power shower, hot towel rail and heated floor, definately the best we have stayed in,staff came up with extra sheets and pillows for us and offered to make the sofa bed, very helpful and friendly girl, breakfast was excellent with plenty of everything in the buffet and on the menu, this hotel was great value for money... we definatly be going back

Room Tip: go for the executive suite i think its called, fab room

Hi Margaret T,

You certainly gave us a great endorsement. Many thanks for that. We are family friendly and our executive room with super kingsize bed and the pull out couch bed is ideal for two adults and two children. You have described perfectly the positives of staying with us - cleanliness, friendliness, location, excellent breakfast and great value for money.

You can be sure that a warm welcome awaits you when next you return to Killarney.

kind regards

Les

Just home from a 3 night stay at the Fairview, booked the junior executive suite was well worth it. Couldn't ask for a better location right in the centre of town. The staff were lovely and friendly, room was spotless and very spacious. Will definitely be returning in the near future and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Stayed in the penthouse of this Guest house during September.To call it a Pent house is a stretch of the Imagination. Its a little more than the size of a family room with a tine lounge area fitted it.As it was a very special treat a bottle of champagne was ordered for the room as a special greeting gift. The charge was e50 for what turned out to be sparkling wine.Staff were not as friendly as one would expect and Im uncertain if it was due to the language barrier.Breakfast room very small and service rushed.Breakfast to me was disappointing due to the service of member of staff,We checked out and the following weekend we stayed somewhere else in Killarney and it was a much nicer experience.

Booked this hotel for a mid-week stay on business. Overall found the hotel to be a decent enough place to stay and the location in the centre of Killarney was fantastic. The welcome from the staff was a little under par from what I would have expected. The room itself was a decent size and was reasonably clean but some more attention wouldnt go amiss. Breakfast was also very good and considering it was included in the price they had a great selection. Overall a good stay and great value for money and will be on the list next time I head to Killarney.

my husband and myself recently stayed at the Fairview for three nights ,we enjoyed our stay but when we arrived home we realised we had left a lead beloning to our camera in our room, when i rang the manager answered, i asked was it found and all he said was housekeeping would know,we were then told that our lead had been found in the room and i was asked to send a S,A,E i could not believe it ,i felt it was very bad customer service and the manner of manager or owner was very stand offish.we always stay in the victoria house hotel but this was closed ,i dont think i would stay in the Fairview again.

Room Tip: i asked for a double ,the bed was very small only a 4ft

My husband and I stayed in the penthouse suite at the hotel, and the penthouse did not disappoint. The bathroom was gorgeous with a gigantic jetted tub, and the living area included a sectional for lounging. I will forever be loyal to this hotel because the staff member who cleaned my room was honest. I left a $500 ring on the nightstand and only realized it once I had traveled 3+ hours to Dublin. Going back wasn't an option. I've left things at hotels before and I've never once gotten them back - even inexpensive items - so I expected much the same when I called the Fairview. I was floored when the hotel manager confirmed that the ring had been turned in and he helped make arrangements to get it back to me. This experience really sweetened my vacation in Ireland, and I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Penthouse was a luxurious treat.

It was a wonderful experience during my stay at Mapple Abhay. Rooms and restrooms were clean. Special attention has been given on hygine and cleaniness of sheets, mattresses and towels. Their restaurant is good. Very warm and cordial staff with good service. Food quality is good. Even the shops in the hotel are good with reasonable rates. I would definitely stay in this hotel in case of travelling to Jodhpur again.
Overall pleasant experience.
