First the hotel. It is an amazing experience, beautiful views of the lake, and worth paying extra for that beautiful view! The staff was excellent, and our room was fantastic: clean, roomy, comfortable and beautiful! Make sure to enjoy the parlor in the late afternoon on the comfy sofas with a fire in the fireplace while enjoying a pot of... More

The Lake Hotel is located in Ireland's national park, very beautiful scenery with mountains in the background. The hotel is a little ways out of town so we took cabs to get to town to go out to dinner. Our only complaint is that the beds were extremely uncomfortable (2nd floor). They were small (queen not king size) and on... More

Just returned from an overnight in this fantastic hotel. Very friendly and efficient staff at check in. Had a lovely meal in the Castlelough Restaurant. Rooms on the top floor are very spacious and have lovely views of the lake. Well worth a visit

On a recent visit to Killarney, I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful hotel set in Muckross Park. My room located at garden level had spectacular views of the mountains and lakes, the food was great, reasonably priced and the staff most courteous and helpful...looking forward to a return visit in the not too distant future!

I stayed 3 nights at this terrific hotel with a friend while on vacation. Couldn't recommend it more. The grounds behind the property offer fantastic views of the lake and mountains beyond. Visible from both the restaurant/bar and our in-room balcony too. Easy access to the National park and Ring of Kerry (just minutes from Muckross, Torc waterfall and not... More

Fabulous hotel, fabulous property, and fabulous location -- simply fabulous. Great staff and service too, with very good restaurants, dining, and pub. Just off N71/Muckross Road (Ring of Kerry) on Lough Leane, just 2 miles from Killarney town - yet "a world away", Amazingly well-priced for such a top-rate place.

Booked this as a treat for our 10th wedding anniversary master deluxe lake view the hotel was gorgeous views spectacular apart from the rain! Dinner in the bistro bar was gorgeous very tasty. The only down side bed was to soft for my back and my favourite drink mojito were a bit expensive at €9.50 overall lovely treat!
