“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

A fantastic Hotel in the most stunning area of Kerry. The Loch and mountain views were amazing.
The Hotel staff were so helpful and attentive and the food was delicious. The breakfast choice was excellent, as were the menus from both restuarants.
The Hotel has been refurbished in recent years and this is still obvious in all areas.
The area around Killarney is very pretty and well worth hiring a car to take in the views.
The spa was perfect too and I thoroughly enjoyed a treatment and relaxing in the hot tub.

Room Tip: Well worth having a 'Lake View' room.

The Europe hotel in Killarney is situated on the lake shore of Killarney with spectacular views over the lakes and mountains.

Over the last couple of years the hotel has been completely refurbished to the highest standard. The spa here is superb and the bar and brasserie look out over the lake. There is also a restaurant in the hotel where the food is some of the best of the local hotels.

The staff in the hotel and first class and the hotel has recently won a prestigious award which they are delighted about.

Well worth a visit if you are in the area, if only for a look and a drink at the bar.

My wife and I have just spent two wonderful nights at the Hotel Europe, our third stay in 22 years. It is a true five star hotel. It is situated on the bank of a beautiful lake with the Purple Mountains looming on the opposite side, on spectacularly and carefully landscaped grounds. The hotel is very modern, obviously continuously upgraded by its German owners, and is lacking in nothing. We dined in both of the restaurants -- the Brasserie and the Panorama -- for dinner and had our breakfasts in the Panorama, the view from which is mesmerizing. The food, in every case, was exceptional and we can honestly say that we have never had a better breakfast. The staff was consistently helpful, led by Daniela in the Panorama and by the out-going breakfast chef whose warmth and eagerness to please ensured a great start to the day. Our room was spacious and spotless with a spectacular view over the lake and --with the cooperation of the weather -- we were able, on our first afternoon, to sit and enjoy a good glass of scotch on the balcony, watching the weather unfold in front of our eyes. This is a destination to which we will yearn to return, hopefully soon.

Huge congratulations to The Europe Hotel for achieving Gold Award Status as the Best 5 Star Hotel In Ireland 2012.

We have visited several times, and they thoroughly deserve this award, it is a fantastic hotel.

Our next trip to this hotel is already in the planning stages, you cannot compare other hotels with it.

Well done to the team.

Room Tip: Front facing Lake View Rooms are the best, but they are all very good.

The Europe was the best hotel we have ever stayed in Ireland. It has surpassed and outclassed any accommodation we have booked. It lived up to it's 5star name in quality and service. The staff need particular praise. They were all genuinely helpful without being over the top. Room view superb. Breakfast was fantastic. We loved everything about this hotel. Many thanks to all the staff.

Room Tip: A lake view is a must. Breathtaking views.

The view is amazing but the food is disappointing and so was the service. For an expensive five star hotel they should do better. Three of us had a meal, 1 vegetarian and 2 meat eaters. We all had different meals off the menu and we all found it less than satisfactory. I can however recommend a fantastic restaurant not to far away at the Berhon Hotel where the food and service put the Europe to shame.
