The hotel was wonderful - modern, clean and very nice people. Great location - right in city center -walk to shops and restaurants - fabulous breakfast and dinner. We will definitely stay there again when were in Killarney.

Fairview "Guest House" is one of the two best hotels (out of many) I have stayed at, in Ireland and considerably the cheaper. Right in the centre of Killarney, excellent food, beautifully equipped rooms, some with jacuzzi baths at only Euro10 a night extra. The breakfast is excellent, including fish, an unusual option in Ireland but a welcome note to a Scot. Wifi is available, as well, for a slight charge. When I bring tours to Ireland, I always try to make Killarney a destination in my itineraries and Fairview is always where I choose for my guests and most especially, FOR ME!.

Rooms top class.
Restaurant food excellent, but expensive.
Only downfall but a big one was the gentleman at the front desk who just seemed to want to grab your credit card and for you to go.
Would come back again and give the place top marks if that man could be fired!

We were a late arrival and directed here by the Tourist Office. Lovely place to stay-we were quoted 45 Euros per person for a standard room but were talked into the Executive suite with jacuzzi for 50 Euros each. This also included the full Irish breakfast . The room was large with full tea and coffee making facilities and ice bucket. The bathroom with jacuzzi was a great experiece-it'll soon sort out any aches and pains. Location is fine -plenty of shops and pubs within a stone's throw. No parking but there is a public card park 2 minutes up the road wih low charges.
We did eat in the restaurant but their interpretation of a 4 course meal is not mine-the 4th course was tea or coffee !!! Still the food was fine.
I am mindful to say that Ireland is very expensive-we went last year and all B&Bs seemed to be 35 Euros a piece now everything is 45 Euros each and eating out is very expensive too.
Staff in the hotel were very pleasant and there was an abundance of tourist information-leaflets, brochures etc available.

We only stayed 2 nights but would have loved to stay longer. Beautiful hotel and beautiful room. Didn't have a view of any sort but the decor was lovely. It was quiet which was great for us. Also a fantastic location, right in the centre of town - close to everything. The dining room for breakfast was also lovely and the breakfast was more than adequate. Can't understand how anyone could complain about this place at all. We paid 80 euros per night for a family room which was a walk-in rate. Definitely good value at that price.

The place was very nice but as we did not feel welcome at all, we never got a friendly smile and felt we were being watch the entire time since we were under the age of 30!!!! The owner was specially rude he never smiled or asked us if we had enjoyed our stayed. The hotel is suitable for people over 40!! Parkind is NOT included!! Breakfast was burned!!! Pretty place but not worth it and DONT GET UP GRADE! JACUZZI NOT WORTH IT!!!

My partner and I booked into this establishment for one night after a long early morning flight from Germany. All we were looking forward to was a nice shower and a cup of tea in a comfy room.
How dissapointed we were ! The room overlooked the roof of an annex and was bare in the extreme. There was a funny smell and the television didnt work and were greeted by a posse of blue flys .
I went downstairs to enquire as to loaning an extension power lead and the Maitre D offered me a fine selection of phone chargers obviously left behind by other guests.
She claimed not to know what an extension lead was, but also claimed that there were sockets beside the bed if needs be. There werent.
When I returned to the room my partner and I decided that the best course of action was to leave.
When we attempted to alight the establishment we were accosted by what can only be described as a hostile dragon who set about to condescend and verbally abuse my partner.
Basil Fawlty wouldnt get a look in !
To make matters worse she had the audacity to charge us despite our misgivings and her coarse behaviour.
