Reviewed September 2, 2010

This was my third trip to the Fairview in Killarney and each one has been something special. We drove down from Dublin airport on Friday night, only arriving at 1.30 am (thanks again James for waiting up for us) and were just given our keys to go to bed, with the promise that we could check in properly the next day. Where else do you get that kind of trust and customer focus this day and age.

Rooms are fantastic, we had 209 and I can surely recommend it. Especially if, like me, nice bathrooms and a comfortable bed are your thing.

Best traditional cooked breakfast Ive ever had in a restaurant, served promptly and friendly

Great location. We were able to walk around the town, to the outlet shopping centre, to the centre to get on a horse and cart, and certainly close enough to all the pubs and nightlife without being too close.

Thanks again Fairview for keeping such a high standard. We will see you again!

This guesthouse is a rareity; Fantastic prices (genuinely amazing value for money), beautiful rooms decorated to a tee.. Breakfast in the dining room was just delicious! Great menu and buffet. :-) Great service provided by helpful and accommodating staff upstairs, at reception and in the restaurant!! The location is literally perfect. Right in the heart of my favourite town, and yet this haven is so peaceful. Will definitely be returning for another visit, thanks to all there for their hospitality.

We stayed two nights at the Fairview and I was very impressed with it and with the owners. The rooms were very lovely. There was ample space and individualized touches to each room that made them seem much more than hotel rooms. This is not a Holiday Inn with the same artwork on each wall. The owners were very kind and helpful. We really enjoyed chatting with them both. The Fairview is very centrally located so that even my elderly father could easily walk to nearby pubs. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

I would highly recommend the penthouse suite of fairview hotel, stayed there at a very good rate (upgraded with an extra charge on arrival). Breakfast was also very nice. Penthouse was so good that we didnt want to leave it, make the most of our time there.

We spent two nights at the Fairview as we traveled around the southern half of Ireland. The room was everything we could ask for and the location was very convenient in Killarney. It was beautiful, clean and well maintained. Would highly recommend it.
