I give the Fairview high marks. From the time we walked in to when we left. The room was clean. Shower was roomy with great water pressure. Breakfast area was a little tight but the food was good (it was a nice break from always eating continental breakfast). Staff was helpful. Great tour packages linked with the hotel at a good price.

The only downfall was that parking was down the street and the hotel only paid for over night parking. Daily parking was about 3EU.

Stayed here for one night and found the hotel to be spotless, all staff we dealt with were friendly and efficient. Hotel is in a perfect location in centre of town and even though it was fully booked it was quiet at night so got a good sleep. Beds are so comfortable and we had everything we needed in our room. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

This was the best place we stayed at in Ireland during our two week road trip. Perfect location to walk around the charming town, Very nice and clean room. Friendly, helpful staff. Could not ask for more. The only negative would be the parking, There is a stop off in front of the guesthouse to unload and check in but you need to drive about 100 m to park in the council car park [but it ends up only costing 1 Euro]. Really not too inconvenient. Don't let it put you off staying here.

stayed here with my friend last night, we were in Killarney for a concert, the manager James was so helpful, arranged taxi's for us, our room was fabulous so comfortable, this hotel is situated in the heart of killarney, walking distance to all the shops and nightlife, the guest house is extremely clean and very well run, i would recommend it for a romantic break, trip with friends or family, ideal for all types. the guest house is very quiet we were not subjected to any noises. the breakfast was absolutely lovely, and the staff were so well presented and friendly. I would recommend this hotel highly and will most definitely be using it for all my future trips to Killarney

We selected the Fairview for its location, amenities and discount off season price. I definitely feel like we got a bargain-- we stayed in a jr suite and paid a very reasonable price. The room was quite clean and attractive. It wasn't as charming as I would have hoped but the furnishings were nice and the bathroom was very luxurious.
In reading the other reviews we knew to expect a possible service problem, we can certainly see what the complaints were about with regard to the main front desk person. Each of our inquiries were met with very curt replies. It wasn't enough to bother us but if you are someone looking for a nice chat and lots of advice about what to see, the service may bother you.
The breakfasts were good, though I wouldn't consider them great. And a final nitpicky thing-- the "fireplace" in the jr suite is one of those electric flickering flame things that don't put out heat. Nice to look at but not the cozy fireplace we imagined.

It looked like a super cozy place and more likek a hotel then 'guset accomodation'. The Check-In was quick and easy with friendly staff and the room was perfect. We stayed in the Standard category but yet it was spacious enough and the bathroom ( with tube) was very nice. Everything was super clean. Amenities and towels, hairdryer, ice bucket - everything you would need. The location was great - nice pubs and restaurants just a few meters ( really - 5 -10 meters) away from the entrace. Also they provide complimentary over night parking if needed.
Breakfast was plenty ( and included in the rate) with continental breakfast and then a choice of a-la-carte ( Irish Breakfast, Pancakes, Omlette etc) surely everyone would find something for their taste.
The staff was very nice - although in the morning we only found one person taking care of the reception and restaurant and he seemed very busy - but yet very professional and enthusiastic and very quick. Great work Bart!
Would go back anytime! Great place for one night or more!
