This place has more scenery then you can take in, in 1 weekend. On the Kilarney lakes. Quiet and full of charm. The food at their resturant was one of the best meals we had I Ireland. I would highly recommend the extra 2 minute drive out of Kilarney to the Lake Hotel

For most of my family our stay at the Lake Hotel was the highlight. The serene setting overlooking the lake was so soothing. The Lake Hotel has a graceful, gentle feel with very competent service but is subdued and laid back. Great views, good food. Peaceful. Highly recommended.

The hotel has so much character & history which you can see from the old family photographs on the walls. The superior lake view room was really spacious with stunning views. The shower was really powerful & the balcony had the most amazing view. We ate in the bar for lunch. The food was very tasty & homely but maybe... More

We heard so much about the beauty of the County Kerry in Ireland and this specific Lake in the Killarney National Park. The hotel in my opinion is the best out of many contenders. It sits on the beautiful shores of the Lake. My kids loved viewing natural life like deer and birds very early in the morning on the... More

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at the beautiful Lake Hotel.

Hotel was nice but not as nice as we had hoped. Had classic old style and charm, set in a beautiful location. Staff seemed somewhat aloof and unfriendly. We booked a lake view room but instead got a view of the front parking lot. Our room was furnished like some sort of Greek whorehouse, which seemed very odd. We ate... More

Such a wonderful location for a hotel. We ate very well both for breakfast and our evening meals --- in both the bistro and the restaurant. In both locations the service was to be applauded. The room we had (425) was massive when compared to other hotels both in Ireland and abroad. The views from the balcony across the grounds,... More

Was looking for a peaceful, tasteful, balanced get away and The Lake Hotel was it. I only took off 1 star because my 9 year old (who picked the hotel after showing him 2 choices and I couldn't decide) said the internet needs a boost. Get the Lake View it is captivating and I love how the low key room... More
