Lovely guest house and very friendly. A homely welcome given. We were upgraded to a suite because it was one of our party's birthday. Had a vegetarian breakfast on offer which was super. Perfectly situated in centre of town.

We spent 3 nights at The Fairview Hotel. The rooms were clean and updated. It was very quiet except at night on the weekend. The street noise was a bit of a problem which we fixed for the most part, by closing the windows. The staff were extremely helpful. I especially want to call out Anne, the night desk person....

Convenient location, friendly staff, clean rooms and great breakfasts in Irish tradition. Avoid front rooms as the traffic noise is incessant...room needs double glazing. Beds not comfortable....my pet hate is two single beds pushed together to make a double bed...never comfortable. Also the sag in the bed indicated mattress was well passed its use by date. Staff kindly provided mattress... More

We toured Ireland and what amazing country particularly the country area and Ring of Kerry. We stayed two nights at The Fairway in Killarney. We received a very hearty welcome at Hotel. It is very central to dine out as well as for shopping. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast outstanding. It is well priced and can recommend.

The Fairview was the perfect location for our golf trip. In the heart of Killarney, walking distance to great shops and restaurants. The rooms were well kept and the staff extremely enjoyable. The morning breakfast was made to order and came out hot and delicious.

We spent 2 nights at the Fairview. The older gentleman at the main desk at check-in is extremely rude. Rooms are very small compared to the pictures. Owen was the only one that was courteous and helpful. I couldn't figure out the air conditioning the room was very stuffy.
