This was a nice alternative to a larger Kerry hotel. Our room was really lovely, even though it was small it was perfectly appointed and we could've stayed there for days. We enjoyed learning about the Morris textiles and wallpapers that have been used in the renovation of Mrs. Gordon's house. The public rooms are really inviting and would make... More

Lovely location on a lake off a narrow winding road. Not too large and has an intimate feel. Setting, amenities, and staff make one feel welcome. Food is excellent. After dinner drinks in the lounge, reading, or on Saturdays listening to a visiting violinist. This is a place to relax after a full day of wandering through the picturesque environs.... More

Slow down unplug and let the beauty of this lovely old Manor House and the stunning lake wash over you. Prepare to be forced to relax. Lovely breakfasts but dinner not at all up to the mark! Great staff.

This place is stunning. I went with my husband and parents and none of us wanted to leave! Highlights are the views over the lake, walks through the gardens, the featherbeds and linens in the bedrooms, the overall decor and comfy sitting rooms downstairs. We are planning on going back asap. They packed us a delicious picnic for our trip... More

Ard na Sidhe (ANS) was the first stop on our Irish honeymoon beginning June 13. Were exhausted flying in from JFK to Shannon night before, then driving to Killorglin stressing out about finding ANS. Reality is that it quite easy to find: just obey the instructions: go west on route N70 (also called Ring of Kerry Road) from second roundabout... More

This is an old stone hunting lodge perfectly set along Caragh lake about 30 minute form the hubbub of Killarney. Getting here is a bit of a search, but we made it on roads just wide enough for one car. The setting is beautiful in the midst of a well designed and maintained garden (we are both landscape architects and... More
