“Had a great March getaway there and loved everything about it.”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

My wife and I live in the States but on a holiday home to see my parents I booked all four of us in 2 Junior suites for 2 nights.
The suites are more spacious than the regular rooms and were very comfortable and looked beautiful. The room and the bathroom were spacious and immaculately clean.
The breakfast room is small and quaint and the food and service excellent. The staff were friendly and the owners willing to take the time to chat and to point out a good local place to eat. The location is right downtown so it was possible to walk anywhere we wanted to go. Only suggestion: would love to have a drinks machine on site so I wouldn't have to walk to a local store to get water bottles.
It was a perfect way to give ourselves a well deserved treat. I will be back.

Room Tip: If you can book a junior suite, do it for the extra space and comfort. Remember though, you will pro...

Hello DonnachaCorcaigh

Thank you for your comments on your stay in the Fairview. We are very proud of the quality of our Junior Suites and they are a big hit with our guests. The extra space is very welcome and the underfloor heating in the Bathroom is an added luxury. We will take on board your comments regarding the bottled water.

We hope you had a safe trip home and look forward to welcoming you again when you are next in Killarney.

We made a last minute reservation at the Fairview after a long day of touring the Dingle Pennisula. Jimmy at the front desk assured us that a lovely room would be ready for us. This small boutique hotel is full of charm and complete with all the luxuries, including a Jacuzzi and a very comfortable bed. Located in the heart of Killarney, we simply parked the car and had many choices of local pubs and restaurants. The full Irish breakfast was delicious. Hope to see you again Jimmy! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Ask Jimmy at the front desk!

Hi Katherine L,

I remember you very well and am so delighted you had such a good time with us. We always appreciate when guests take time to extol the virtues of a property and you have certainly done us proud. A big factor in the selection of a place to stay is location and the Fairview has the best location in town within an easy walk to Restaurants, Pubs and Shops.

I certainly hope we have an opportunity to welcome you back to Killarney Katherine,

Kind Regards
Jimmy

My wife and children stayed in march 2012. The hotel was very nice. Very clean tastefully decorated room and pleasant staff. The hotel was quiet and very comfortable with good accommodations like free parking, free wifi. It is right downtown Killarney and easy to find with easy access to the attractions all around. Overall a great hotel for the price.

Room Tip: We chose the room with king, twin, and couch.

This is a lovely hotel with a nice boutique feel to it. The room its self was nice but i was expecting better for an executive room but the bathroom was very nice. There was a skylight in the room also which light the room up at 6 in the morning not good when you had a few pint the night before. The breakfast was lovely. I would stay here again but as for a room without a skylight.

Room Tip: Ask for a room without skylight

Hi Connoisseurdrog

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in the Fairview. We are delighted to see that you enjoyed your stay with us and would return to stay with us again. We are sorry you didn't like the skylight but this has proved to be a novelty for a number of guests. We will make sure if you return that you have an alternative Executive Room.

The hotel is situated right in the town centre minutes walk from the High Street. We got a room with a jacuzzi and flat screen TV. Ann warmly welcomed us at reception. She assisted us in planning our entertainment and organised a coach tour round the Ring of Kerry which is well worth it. Our room was beautiful and clean with a king size bed and lovely bathroom. Breakfast was good but was not included in the price. The rooms were well priced. A lovely ambience and thoroughly enjoyable oplace to stay. Highly recommended.

I stayed here for the first time about 7 years ago. I remember at the time that myself and my friend were very impressed with it - lovely modern decor, nice comfortable clean room, great location & excellent value for money. I was slightly concerned when booking this time that it might have become old or shabby in the intervening years. Thankfully my concerns were unfounded. It's just as nice now as it was then. Obviously a lot of thought went into the decor & the results are very aesthetically pleasing. Our room was extremely comfortable & quiet with a spacious, modern, clean bathroom. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
