“The Fairview”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This was an exceptional guest house located within walking distance of the shops and restaurants. The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The facility was beautiful and comfortable. A lightbulb went out in our room and blew a fuse and a staff member was there within a minute of the call and knew exactly what to do, taking 15 seconds. We had the full Irish breakfast and it was very good, however we did not eat at the restaurant next door which is operated by the same company. It looked to be quite elegant. I highly recommend this guesthouse and would return.

My lasting impression is one of order and cleanliness, if cleanliness is truly next to godliness these people are already in heaven. We got an upgrade to a junior suite which was very comfortable and well appointed but I am fairly confident that this would be the case with all the rooms. All the staff we came into contact with were on the ball and friendly. A good breakfast choice to suit all tastes and the quality of the breakfast was good. At last a place to stay that lives up to its star rating would highly recommend if you are in Killarney.

We just spent a fantastic family weekend in Killarney celebrating our parents Golden Wedding Anniversary. We stayed in The Fairview which was one of the nicest hotel/guesthouses we've ever stayed in. Jimmy and the rest of the staff were lovely and couldn't do enough to help. The service was second to none. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful and served with a smile! We will certainly be back.

Just back from a wonderful family weekend in Killarney, one of the friendliest towns I have ever been to. We had 5 rooms at the Fairview Hotel and were celebrating our Parents Golden Wedding Anniversary. Jimmy, Les and Anne Marie could not have been nicer and helped us make the weekend special for our amazing parents, including sending them a very thoughtful gift. The accommodation, service, food and hospitality were excellent and we have all vowed to go back. Thank you for looking after us so well and making it such a happy memory for us all.
Much appreciated. Aoife

The Fairview was the perfect location for our stay in Killarney. The rooms were very comfortable and large enough. We were at the end of the hallway which was a bit noisy first thing in the morning because of houskeeping going in and out of their closet. The room was quite clean and all of our needs were met. Parking was just up the road, although it was only 1/2 block and very close by. Breakfast was not the best we had in Ireland, but there was a good amount of options.
