“Comfortable and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here for a wedding nearby. The staff met us on arrival with an umbrella and looked after the luggage. There followed 3 days of warm hospitality in very comfortable environs. The staff were very helpful. The room was large, comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast was very good. The Country House has fabulous views over the lake and is very convenient to the town of Killarney.

We booked on the strength of previous reviews and were not disappointed. We will be back again.

Following a successful family stay at Loch Lein some 4 years ago we were looking for a venue for a special family celebration and remembering the great service and attention to detail from our previous event we opted for the familiar. We were not disappointed in any way. Paul was particularly helpful in advising on local service providers we needed for the event and in planning the dinner menu etc ahead of the event. I'm not sure how he managed it but the weather was fantastic on the day itself which has led to wonderful family photos given the already fabulous setting of the hotel. The dinner was once again excellent with top marks to the chef. The staff make all their hard work look effortless. Well done to Paul Annette and staff for helping to make some wonderful family memories from a lovely eveny. I would recommend the hotel as an ideal location for a small family wedding. Engaged couples might consider the picturesque Fossa RC church just down the road teamed with Loch Lein as a stunning scene setter for their special day.

Room Tip: All rooms to the front of the hotel have stunning views over the lake with the mountains rising beyo...

A breathtaking view of the lake and beautiful mountains greeted us upon arrival at Loch Lein.The warmth of the welcome from Paul, Annette and Sean was equally impressive. We recently stayed for two nights and were treated like family, nothing was a problem, and extraordinary efforts were made by the staff to ensure all of the guests were kept happy. Rooms were large, bright and comfortable. The food was excellent throughout. This is a very relaxing and peaceful place.We would recommend a visit.

We attended a special wedding anniversary function recently , on arrival we were greeted warmly by Annette and Paul who showed us around with great enthusiasm .The house itself is homely and comfortable with beautiful gardens and a friendly atmosphere.
We ate in the restaurant and cannot recommend the food highly enough from the fresh home made bread to the innovative menu which was mouthwateringly delicious,
A trip to Loic Lein Country House is a must, the food and service is just exceptional.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and Paul, Annette and staff worked really hard to make this a memorable celebration .

We arrived after a long drive to a wonderful view of the lake and a couple sitting in the garden drinking tea.... And then we went inside the property and were greeted with wonderful hospitality and service. Sean was outstanding and we felt as though Annette and Paul had invited us into their home. The breakfast was wonderful and the setting was fabulous. We were on a whirlwind golf trip, which in Ireland means that you have to bring extra balls, and Paul was kind enough to give us an extra supply for our next round. It was a delightful experience and on our list for a return visit.

A beautiful Inn and travel respite near Killarney. It overlooks a pasture and lake, offers great food and the innkeeper/owner is helpful in every way. This is a must place to stay when visiting Ireland.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a lake view.

We were completely impressed with our 3-day stay at Loch Lein and so glad we booked in such a beautiful setting on the lake instead of in town. The house itself is lovely and atmospheric. Our room was enormous and comfortable and had a great view onto the lake; the bathroom was also large with a separate shower and tub. We felt pampered from the first offer of coffee or tea in our room when we arrived, and the level of service continued throughout. Food was delicious, both breakfast and the one dinner we had at the hotel. Annette and Paul and Sean could not have been more gracious; when we needed to see a doctor, they handled it almost instantly, and were attentive and concerned about it going well. They washed some jeans for us and refused to charge anything, because it was such a “little thing.” My only criticism is that the wifi was kind of iffy in the room; I had to walk around to try to get a connection and I hope they’ll get to fixing that, as it’s so important these days. Otherwise, nary a quibble. We only wished another day that we could spend just relaxing around the hotel and grounds and enjoying the scenery. Can’t imagine anyone not loving this place. Would stay there again in a nano-second.
