I revisited Lochlein Country House for a family celebration this year and once again it did not disappoint.The location is idyllic, close to the banks of the lower Lakes of Killarney and its stunning backdrop of the Macgillycuddy Reeks, we were fortunate with the weather which showed the lakes at their best, a view that's hard to beat and steeped in fabulous tales of Irish folklore too (see if you can find Tír na n-Óg, the Land of Eternal Youth, it's close by they say!)
We found the hotel perfect for a peaceful relaxing stay or small gatherings like ours, probably more convenient for those who have a car as it's a couple of miles outside town. Everything was great from start to finish. If you’re a neat freak like me you’ll be happy to hear that the rooms are spotless, you will honestly feel like no one has stayed there before. And breakfast is a wonderful array of hot or cold dishes so you won't go hungry. We recommend the full Irish breakfast which will set you up perfectly for an easy ramble or challenging hike round the area (or enjoy boating and tours of Muckross House in Killarney). We also enjoyed evening dining with our party and the food was exceptional, succulent meat, tender fish and fresh seasonal veg every time. As for the desserts? Well, there are no words... but we'll be back for more... The icing on the cake is hotel hosts Paul and Annette who are a fountain of local knowledge and always there when you need them but completely unobtrusive if you want to work away at your own pace. We'll certainly be back again to stay at this well-kept secret - sadly one that we feel compelled to share with you ;-)
