“Awesome. The highlight of our trip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2009

We made the crazy decision to drive from Dublin to Killarney after arriving from BOS at 5 AM. When we finally made it to Killarney several hours later, we were more than exhausted. Paul met us at the door, got us to our beautiful spacious room (family room, one double, 3 twin beds and beautiful lake view). When we asked where we could go for a quick bite before napping for the afternoon, he offered to make us a quick (delicious) omelet so we could eat and sleep...in spite of the fact the kitchen was already closed for breakfast. I guess we looked as exhausted as we felt! I wanted to cry we were so appreciative!

The rest of our visit was just as pleasant. The breakfast was fabulous every day and such a value combined with the great price of the room. Paul and Annette were so helpful in figuring out our itinerary and making suggestions for meals...so warm and pleasant.

After 4 nights, we went back to Dublin, I woke up the 5th day and realized how sad it was not to be greeted downstairs by Paul or Annette...we missed them already!

I can definitely recommend Loch Lein Country House, and plan to go back as soon as can!

I add my congratulations to those of the reviews before me. People make the place - whoever said something like that wasn't wrong. A superb country house hotel coming at the end of a 10 day tour of Ireland with warmth, professionalism and hospitaly of Paul & Annette Corridan of Loch Lein Country House Hotel sealed a great trip.

Superb rooms overlooking the Lake, fabulous food, nothing too much trouble, great books, cosy bar, gorgeous sitting room. Gorgeous paint colours and fabrics - our lounge may well shortly turn into the artful, cosy "pumpkin" colour in the dining area thanks to Paul supplying the colour chart number - not many hosts would bother methinks!

But best of all Paul was a mine of information, gave us driving hints to places we would not have known, general and detailed information, great conversation and a sense of humour tucked away. He tackled our Australian sometimes twisted sense of humour with ease, familiarity and quite capable of giving it all back! Not everyone can do that! Annette also has innate sensitivities to travellers. We confessed to a 3am session at the bar (well behaved and quiet) with new found best friends and Annette's comment was "Well that's the sign of a good holiday".

Did I add internet access? - wi-fi for your own or computer in the lounge area. Perfect.

She was not wrong. The stay made for a superb memory to this special place in Killarney, ireland. Hugely recommended.

Situated a short drive from Killarney along a typically leafed country lane, the locale might need a drive but it looks out over the lake with rolling grass between the lake and the hotel with a sense of Irish country we read about in travel books

We have stayed at many resorts and in fact had a convention next door at the Hotel Europe, but we like Loch Lein the best. It is the best value and had fabulous views and service. The rooms were so modern and roomy and the views were to die for.

Annette and Paul were so gracious and made us feel right at home. We are already planning another trip for next year and plan to make this one of our stops.

This place is so lovely words just don't do it justice! The view, rooms, atmosphere were fantastic. But the place is really special due to the gracious owners, Paul and Annette. They simply go out of their way to make your stay wonderful. The food is incredible! If we are ever lucky enough to go back to Irleand, we will just plant ourselves at Loch Lein for the entire trip!

One of the more expensive hotels on our Ireland trip but we felt it was value for money. We booked a double Lakeview Room (EUR150) which was lovely - comfortable, well-furnished, roomy and the view was stunning. Annette, the host, gave us some great dinner suggestions (unfortunately the restaurant was closed the night we were there) and ideas for sightseeing. The breakfast room also has a lake view to enjoy.

Just returned from a two night stay at the Loch lein country house on the last leg of a week spent touring the west coast of Ireland. Stayed in the big chain hotels along the way which were fine and provided a good but similar standard of accommodation and service. The loch lein however was simply perfection. Its location providing gorgeous views over the Loch and in a quiet secluded lane just a short drive from the centre of Killarney was just so quiet and relaxing. The accommodation is very spacious and beuitfully furnished in calming and comforting fabrics and colours. The public lounge and dining room provides a glorious vista over Loch lein and the hosts Paul and Annette providing valuable local knowledge to help us make the most of our stay. There are so many hotels and guest houses in Killarney to choose from. This must be surely one of the best.

A calm hotel with very comfortable rooms and bathroom with view to Loch Lein lake. The service was very excellent, especially the breakfast was so good with fresh fuits and different dishes. Also our children were filled with enthusiasm. Annett and Paul are very charming hosts. Paul gave us very good suggestions for sight seeing tours. We recommend this hotel and will come back.
