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

Simply amazing! The hotel is beautiful and impeccably clean and the grounds and the walk to the lake stunning! The staff were extremely attentive and friendly and the food was extremely tasty. We stayed in room seven and there must be a problem with the drains as it did smell like bins! We would have asked to move but we... More

This is a country house is set in beautiful gardens looking over the lake. This alone is a reason to stay- the gardens and patios make maximum use of this wonderful setting. Our room was of a good size with excellent bathroom, certainly up to the mark of the cost which is not cheap. In beautiful weather we decided to... More

Had a hard time finding it at first. The Sat/Nav we have couldn't pull it up. Turn left at the Centra in Killorglin and after a few kilometers you will see a sign for the hotel. We used it as a base for 4 nights to tour all around Ring of Kerry and Dingle. Probably only needed 3 nights. The... More

It was definitely the "hill of fairies". We lived a dream in a castle surrounded by beautiful gardens and a romantic lake in the midst of a mystical forest. We even saw a couple of deers. Our room in the main building was all new, spacious, cozy, so clean, with a comfortable bed and crispy linens, not to mention the... More

Fabulous hospitality in this out of the way, peaceful and beautiful property. Only 10 minutes from Kilorglin and perched on the banks of a lake in a pretty forested location. The room was spacious and cosy and the three course dinner delicious and filling. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt at home here. Great base for exploring the... More

This magnificent home and its gardens sits on a beautiful lough with brown trout. The grounds are perfect for strolls, and the living areas of the manor house are nice for relaxing after a walk or before or after dinner. The food and service were first rate. We stayed in the recently remodeled adjacent property. Our room was a little... More

When you arrive you see a beautiful manor house looming down a long driveway sitting on the edge of a wonderful lake... and it only gets better. The interiors of the hotel are decorated with antiques and fine textiles. The rooms are lite at night with the glow of fireplaces. It is truly enchanting. The food is excellent[ we ate... More
