“Two night stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We stayed at a number of different places on our two week trip to Ireland & Loch Lein was one that we were very comfortable at. Everyone was very friendly & helpful. The rooms were very nice & if I were to make a suggestion it would be that they upgrade on the in room television sets.The food was excellent & I miss it already, would go back again in a heartbeat.

This was our second stay with Annette and Paul at the Loch Lein House and we are already making plans to return again next year. The rooms, the view, and the dining room are outstanding. But it is the hospitality of Annete, Paul, and the staff that makes this a must stay when you are in Killarney. This year we brought our friends and they loved it. Thanks everyone at Loch Lein House.

From the moment we arrived, we felt completely comfortable here. Paul (owner with wife Annette) graciously welcomed us and got us settled in our room. He offered us coffee in the beautiful garden area overlooking a freshly-cut hay field and the lake--a courtesy that was repeated two more times during our 4-day stay. All of the public areas and our room were very nicely appointed. The staff members were all cordial and efficient. Clearly, the focus here is on taking care of their guests. The breakfast options were plentiful, the food very tasteful and well-presented in the classic dining room with the pastoral lake view. We had originally intended to stay 3 nights, but after the first two days, we liked it so much, we changed our plans to spend another night. Over our 2-week vacation in Ireland, this was the best, most memorable place we stayed, and we will be back. If you're looking for a quiet, comfortable, and beautiful place to stay in the Killarney area, stay here.

Annette and Paul made us (4 rooms of weary travelers) feel so welcome! From the moment we walked in, it was a wonderful experience. The rooms, the food, the hospitality and even the craic were not to be missed. We so look forward to our next visit. Thank you for an absolutely marvelous holiday. The inn is spotless and so comfortable - you two are the best!

We had an 8 night stay at this lovely family run hotel in Fossa. We were welcomed by Paul and our bags we taken up to our room and as it was a lovely day we were settled in the garden over looking the lake with a welcome glass of wine. Paul has a similar sense of humour as my husband so they got on right from the start and it carried on right through the holiday. We had a lovely room overlooking the lake, breakfast was really good and we could have basically anything we wanted. Evening meal was Tuesday to Saturday, which was served by the lovely Rebecca who always had a smile for us. Tea and freshly brewed coffee was always at hand whenever we wanted it. Annette was there to take our orders for dinner with a smile and interest on what we had done that day and was full of advice on places to visit.
Nothing was too much trouble and it was a pleasure to stay in such a lovely hotel. Thank you Paul and Annette.

I was referred to this hotel by the manager of the Park House Hotel in Galway. We had stayed at the Park House on a previous trip and loved it - I asked the manager if he knew of a hotel in the Killarney area that was of equal quality (old world charm, excellent service, lovely settings, etc.) - he immediately told me to book the Loch Lein Country House.

My first impression upon pulling into the Loch Lein's parking area was that it was a lovely country house in a fairly secluded area - and it had a great view of the lake. While struggling with my luggage, one of the staff literally ran out to help us with the luggage. Just stellar service!

Let me break this stay into sections:

Hotel: Gorgeous, warm, inviting. Lovely sitting / lounge area and a great dining area. I wish we'd had more time to just enjoy and relax here. There are some lovely walks around the hotel down to the lake and woods. I really liked that it's not a huge hotel but a sumptuous, smallish hotel. We made friends with some of the other guests and even went on a few day trips together.

Room: Wow... just that. Huge, lush, wonderful. The bathroom - huge and beautiful. We had a full bath and a standing shower. (Note to staff - sorry my wife washed all her seashells in the bathtub!). Amazing view of the lake. Large, comfy queen bed with a separate sitting area.

Dining: breakfast was wonderful and delicious. I had the full Irish most days while my wife had a variety of meals. Dinner was equally fantastic. Best food we had in the area was here at the hotel.

Staff: They felt like a family, like they really cared about the property and the guests. Our every need was seen to, literally. I am an early riser and Paul (the owner?) had no problem accommodating me for coffee or tea and such well before breakfast was ready. They gave us extremely helpful tips for places to visit, how to avoid traffic and snarls and generally made our stay in the area fantastic.

When we come back, which we will, we will without a doubt re-book here at the Loch Lein.

We recently had three nights in this beautiful Country House. Received a very warm welcome from Paul and Girard who soon had our bags in the room, and a tray of very welcomed tea in the lounge - nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was excellent, and really peaceful. We also enjoyed the breakfast each day, we didn't have dinner there as we were often out late sightseeing.

Paul was most helpful with suggestions on itinerary, and as we were always welcomed back each day by one member of the team interested in where we had been and what we had seen, it became a bit like coming home.

We would most certainly stay there again when we return to Ireland for another holiday.
