“An Irish 5 star experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

At last a five star experience that has not lost sight of what it means to be Irish. In the land of a thousand welcomes the Aghadoe Heights Hotel and Spa have hit the nail on the head. From arrival to departure the attention to detail and standard of service are second to none. Highly trained staff are just waiting to lavish you and tend to your every need, nothing appears to be too much bother. The relaxing atmosphere allows you to enjoy the majestic views of the lakes and mountains every which way you turn. A big thank you in particular to: Marie, for the lift into town, Claire, for the extra sugar, Amanda for the facial of the century, Darren for the best 'Shelbourne ' Mojito, keep muddling! And Brendan for living in hope - good luck with the road to Croke Park!!

My husband and I have returned to this hotel every year for the past eight years. The only thing that matches the stunning views of killarney's lakes from almost every window in the hotel is the exceptional service. This is a hotel that does not only meet your needs, it anticipates them. I highly recommend the golfers massage in their award winning spa. This hugely restorative massage was the best I've ever had. We also really enjoyed Stephens highly informative whiskey tasting in the lounge. We dined both in the lounge and in the dining room. The food in both was impeccable. This chef shows real passion. I cannot wait to to return to this wonderful hotel.

I stayed here with 4 colleagues for two nights. The property is wonderful, but the service was hands-down the best I've ever experienced. I've never seen such commitment and passion from a staff before. They made our stay one of the most memorable I've ever had. Well done!

We arrived at this contemporary resort located on a high bluff overlooking Loch Leane. The mountain and lake vistas are stunning and the rooms are comfortable and very clean. The dining venue, Lake Restaurant serves a great breakfast and better dinner. The hotel boasts a swimming and hot pool, spa and exercise facility. A walk around the grounds reveals one of St, Finians early churches, the Aghadoe Church, a wonderful ruin very close by. This hotel is located just a short distance outside Kilarney so one can take advantage of the nearby town and then enjoy the quiet of the hotel. A nice place to spend some time and enjoy the Ring of Kerry while you visit.

Room Tip: Get a lake view

What more can I say about this fantastic Hotel that hasn't already been said. 5 Stars doesn't seem adequate to rate this hotel. The rooms are very spacious, the food is amazing, staff are amongst the friendliest I have come across in all my travels. From the moment we arrived to the moment we were dropped back off at the train station, staff really couldn't do more for us. The Spa is out of this world so relaxing. The hotel is not only fabulous but so quiet as well, we stayed at a very busy weekend but you wouldn't know it was sold out!
Every single staff member is friendly and approachable but a big special thank you to the staff in the Heights Bar so attentive and friendly and made my mother feel very special for her birthday weekend. Well done Aghadoe Heights I cannot wait to come back for another visit.

Room Tip: Lake View rooms have spectacular views.

It had it all.The best hotel staff.The best food.The best rooms.The manager upgraded us to a suite which was so wonderful.The room (351) was amazing,so comfortable and big.The staff could not have been nicer.The pool area was perfect. The hotel just had a lovely, warm, homely feel. When we left, we were relaxed and so happy.Thank you so much for everything :)

I have stayed in 5 star hotels throughout the world and many of them could learn from the service we received here.

This is the second time we have stayed and from the moment you arrive to departure the staff at this hotel are simply 5 star nothing is too much trouble and the Hotel is possibly is in the best location in Ireland.

My family and I have made a pact that every year we are booking a weeks holiday at this hotel, we had ajoining spacious rooms (Need some updating) but very pleasant views.

The kids aged from 9 to 13 were all catered for and loved the pool together with my wife who enjoyed the Spa.

Cannot recommend this hotel enough - Well Done to the management and Staff

Room Tip: Top floor if at all possible !
