A friend and I stayed for one night and the experience at the Fairview was excellent. Room was tidy and the bed comfortable, it was quiet, and the front desk was ready to offer any help or suggestions of things to do/places to eat. Very centrally located. Would certainly return.

The breakfast was excellent and the hotel staff was the best--very kind... More

This hotel had a great exterior and nice interior. Beds were good, but not the best. Bathrooms had plenty of room for me and my husband. Good service, and a full breakfast which included ordering something hot from the menu. This hotel is literally right beside The Shire Bar which is really cool! The bar was inspired by Lord of...

We booked last minute as I was traveling back from Tralee after having minor knee surgery. The room was far superior to the 4 Star Hotel I had stayed in the night before. Everything was great from the bed to bathroom the place just oozes class. The breakfast was top notch and had every thing there anyone could want! Thank... More
