A luxury break in a fantastic setting which provides a relaxing base from which to view some of the best views and natural heritage that Ireland has to offer Early morning views, from our room, of the deer feeding on the lake just enhanced this trip and the friendly and helpful nature of the staff was outstanding.

Amazing location with beautiful views of the lake and the red deer which pass through. Attentive, friendly staff. Nicely appointed room with more great views. Dinner was superb and a cut above usual hotel meals. Elegantly presented and cooked to perfection. Overall a fantastic stay and highly recommended.

I review a lot of places on TA and I normally give credit to where credit is due- this is not one of these reviews. Firstly I have never heard of any hotel imposing a minimum 2 night stay rule especially when we received a voucher as a gift. A room website offered a single night stay but the hotel... More

What an amazing location! Pulling off the road into the driveway you couldn't imagine the view this hotel has, even grazing deer can be spotted from ones balcony. Killarney is a wonderful place with plenty to see and this hotel is the perfect base for that! Serene and picturesque, admire the beauty from your bath overlooking the incredible Kilarney national...

A fantastic hotel set on beautiful Lough Leane lake in Killarney. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a jacuzzi tub in the room. Meals were fabulous and the service excellent. Only downside is mattress tended to be soft, but found that throughout Ireland. Would highly recommend this place.
