Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review about your recent stay with us and for marking us so highly on your report. It is always a pleasure to hear that our guests left us feeling happy with the products and services that they received during their visit with us.

I appreciate your comments regarding our team here at the hotel of whom we are very proud. Our team often go out of their way to ensure our guests holidays with us are a success and that they experience a home away from home ambiance during their visits to us so it is lovely to hear that this doesn’t go unnoticed. I hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the hotel soon again and thank you once again for this lovely report.

My wife and I stayed here on a three night deal in a very hot July 2013. The room was not ready upon arrival but reception contacted housekeeping straight away and room was ready within 30 mins. Room was very clean and well equipped, although TVs could do with updating. poor picture quality on many stations. Location is superb overlooking Muckross Lake, in the evenings sitting outside looking at the lake, there are many red deer nearby who come up yo within 50 feet of you to graze. lovely sense of history about the place with many pertinent photographs and documents chronicling the history of the place. staff are friendly and co-operative and the quality of food in the restaurant is very good. Nice base for a stay in Killarney.

Room Tip: Ask for Lake view room with balcony.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review about your recent stay with us and for choosing the Lake Hotel for your holiday in Killarney. Wasn’t the weather fantastic this month? It was like Costa de la Killarney here with the unbroken sunshine and tropical climate a real treat. I’m glad that your room was made ready for you quickly on arrival as we always want our guests to start enjoying their holiday from the minute they arrive in the hotel. Thank you for your lovely comments regarding our location and the views from the hotel. We are very lucky to look out at the beautiful lake and surrounding mountains together with the native wildlife such as the deer, otters, squirrels, birds and of course the newly re-introduced white tailed eagles. The McCarthy Mór Castle adds to the sense of history of the hotel along with the memorabilia that we have displayed throughout the building. Thank you also for your kind comments regarding our team here at the hotel I will pass those on to them. I hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the hotel soon again and thank you once again for this lovely report.
Kind Regards,
Niall Huggard – General Manager

Regrettably, we only spent 2 nights in this wonderful hotel, as we were passing through, but we will most certainly return in the near future. The staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient, the view onto the lake was a world beater and the restaurant food wood equal any worldwide 5 star hotel. We were sorry to leave.

I cannot find one single fault with this hotel. The scenery is just out of this world and so too is the hotel.

I would 100% recommend it to anyone visiting Kerry.

Spectacular, we'll definitely return.

Thank you

We have just returned from our stay at the Lake Hotel in Killarney...and I am so fulfilled at the wonderful stay we had.
Not only the beauty and cleanliness of the hotel and it's surroundings...but the wonderful staff, who cannot do enough for you. They all take time to explain, the trips and the surroundings to make the most of your stay. Nothing is too much.
Secondly, it must be said, that the restaurant is fabulous...The food was nothing short of exquisite!
I have personally eaten in many top London hotels, and believe me this restaurant comes very close.
Restaurant staff are efficient and friendly, and the manager of the restaurant directs his team with ease, making the environment a pleasure!
And lastly, it's location...Backing onto the lake, we were able to watch natural wildlife, and the picturesque scene from our balcony, next to the national park, and of course the wonderful enchanting town centre.
Congratulations Lake Hotel, and thank you so much for making us a memory we will never forget....

Room Tip: Choose lake view...Its not to be missed...
