If you are looking for a romantic night away this is the place to go. My husband and myself stayed last night. The food is fantastic the staff are so friendly the views are stunning. We stayed in one of the deluxe suites with a balcony and jacuzzi in the bed room.
It's a quite hotel but if you want to venture to others bars the main town isn't to far way.
It's ideal if you just want to chill and relax. Highly recommend this hotel.

Dear Guest
Thank you for your lovely review on your stay with us at The Lake Hotel and for rating us do highly. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us so much. We are so lucky to be situated in such a fantastic location on the shore of Lough Lein, surrounded by our national Park with such lovely walks and things to see and do right on our doorstep.
It is always so nice to have a romantic break away, and it great to hear that you both enjoyed your stay with us. I hope it is not too long before we have the pleasure of welcoming you back again and you have as an enjoyable stay as the last.
Warm Regards

The Lake Hotel is a pleasant Oasis away from downtown Killarney, which has become a tourist trap. We were there when a popular singer was in town, but the taxi drivers we used ,said it was always crowded this way. So, being on the edge of town in this beautiful hotel, away from every thing was a very pleasant respite from the crowds. The room was spacious, new and well appointed. ( ask to be in the new wing, which is where we stayed) great accommodation and friendly staff. This was not part of our Castle tour, but could have easily have qualified to be a part of it

Room tip: Ask to stay in the new wing

During the Summer months, yes killarney can be quiet busy in the town center, so we are delighted that we can be a choice for people to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town, and yet still be able to enjoy all that Killarney has to offer.
I hope it is not too long before we have the pleasure of welcoming you back again and you have as an enjoyable stay as the last.

This place has more scenery then you can take in, in 1 weekend. On the Kilarney lakes. Quiet and full of charm. The food at their resturant was one of the best meals we had I Ireland. I would highly recommend the extra 2 minute drive out of Kilarney to the Lake Hotel

For most of my family our stay at the Lake Hotel was the highlight. The serene setting overlooking the lake was so soothing. The Lake Hotel has a graceful, gentle feel with very competent service but is subdued and laid back. Great views, good food. Peaceful. Highly recommended.

Room tip: Go for a Lake view room

Our 5th visit to this hotel and always more than statisfied. The setting is just stunning with fabulous lake views, the hotel itself has an old world feel to it which really helps with switching off from hussle of everyday life. Superior lake view rooms lovely and spacious, all meals we ate were really good and majority of staff genuinely friendly and helpful. I would without hesitation highly recommend this hotel.

Room tip: Superior lake view room - spacious with fabulous views
