“Great rooms with a great location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2011

I stayed two nights and have found the overall experience to be very good. The rooms are beautiful. At €55.00 per night it was well worth the price. Centrally located, very clean and cozy. Only negatives: the shower only has a half door leaving the end of the tub exposed and making the floor wet, the beds are not the most comfortable, you have to insert your room key into a slot to get power to the room. If you have left any items behind to charge, they won't because the room's electricity is turned off while your away. Found that very inconvenient.

I liked this guesthouse very much, because the place is very clean, the rooms are large, confortable (large beds) and nicely decorated. The Bathroom was very large and the bath had jacuzzi.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with en suite baths

I only had the pleasure of staying at The Fairview for one night, and can't wait to return. The room was spacious and clean, and had all of the amenities I could ask for (including fantastic water pressure in the shower). The staff was incredibly kind and accommodating, and went above and beyond to help my friends and I with tour plans and accommodations. The hotel is situated in the perfect location (walking distance to shops, pubs and restaurants). They paid for our overnight parking (down the street, walking distance to the lot) as well. During our trip, it became the hotel we compared all other hotels to. I would strongly recommend The Fairview (and already have) to anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay while in Killarney.

My friends and I stayed at the Fairview for only one night during a 10 day whirlwind tour of Ireland in March 2011. It was hands-down the best hotel/guesthouse we stayed at during our trip!!! The staff was welcoming and kind, always offering a suggestion about good places to eat or see in Killarney. The rooms were gorgeous and very clean and the atmosphere at the Fairview was tranquil and quaint (it felt more like a 4 star hotel than a guesthouse). And, in terms of location, you couldn't find a more centrally located place to lay your head. We absolutely loved the experience (so much so that we recommended it to other travelers we met along the way) and I would highly recommend this hotel/guesthouse to anyone that is looking for great service, comfort, friendly staff, clean (and large) rooms, all at a very good/affordable price!

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.
