“Wedding”
Reviewed July 15, 2011

A wonderful venue for a wedding and the hotel couldn't do enough to help in preparation and on the day. Obviously we visited beforehand and experienced the general ambiance. also. David Cronin, "Well done and thank you". In general I would recommend it as a high quality hotel for a short stay or major function. Disappointment unlikely.

Beautiful hotel with magnificent lake view. Beautiful grounds/gardens. Interesting design. Decor throughout bright and luxurious - very spacious and great relaxing seating areas. Glass elevators offer great views. Room furnished to a high standard. No tea making facilities. Bathroom great. Separate bath/shower. Magnificent gym and spa leisure facilities. Outdoor vitality pool is very relaxing. Great views from restaurants - although food rather expensive. Buffet breakfast very good but more choice of cooked breakfasts would have been appreciated. Staff efficient and very helpful. 2 spacious indoor tennis courts. Stables and cute children's playground. Lovely walks on the grounds by the lake. Big disappointment was the noise made by the groundsmen - power washing and lawn mowing all the time we were there - really took from the peace and tranquility of the area and not conducive to a 'quiet read of the newspaper'.

Room Tip: Superior lake view room - absolutely magnificent.

Just on my last day of my minimoon at hotel Europe and am so sad to be leaving. From the time we arrived the stay has been fantastic with a complimentary upgrade and a bottle of champagne we were made feel really special. This hotel is amazing the best I've seen and is set set in the most beautiful location.. The spa and leisure area are out of this world and has to be seen to be believed..the food at panorama resturanr is fab from fillet steak to die for to Dover sole falling off the bone. The only fault I would have is some if the rooms decor us quite dated but I have been informed that a refurb of these room is to take place in Oct and I CANT WAIT to come back. This hotel can't be beat in Ireland

My brother got married in Killarney in April 2011 so we booked in the Europe Hotel. The location was ideal in that it was only a few minutes drive from the town but being at the hotel you get a feeling of remoteness and peacefulness. The service was impecable. The managers were extremely helpful and were continuously present throughout the entire reception and they ensured the evening went very smooth. The rest of the staff in the hotel were just as helpful and very kind. I am a wheelchair user and often I find staying in hotels out of the question, however, The Europe has fantastic facilities for wheelchair users. The entire hotel and its restaurants, are very wheelchair friendly. The room I stayed in is one of the best adapted rooms I have ever seen. It is clear whoever designed the room had an understanding of what is helpful and what is a hindrance to wheelchair users. This hotel would be my first choice when considering a break not only for its excellent location, staff and facilities but also because of its world-class standard of wheelchair accessibility.

We're an Irish couple and have been coming back to this hotel for the past three years since we first discovered it. Fantastic backdrop, amazing food, and the spa facilities are the best we've ever experienced. The outdoor heated infinity pool was my personal highlight!!!

The food is great, the staff are very friendly and accomodating and with the rooms refurbished this year, this hotel for its overall experience won't be beaten. We can't recommend this place strongly enough.

This hotel has had a major revamp of public areas, these are very well designed , with good taste, the spa and pool are really lovely.
But when we booked in, we were very disappointed and quite surprised by the room accomodation. Some rooms are being renovated, indeed it does look like I remember from a reunion of 11 years ago.
Gaudy check bedcovers and a coffee table that has seen better days is not what you expect in a 5 star room- it is more in keeping with a 3 star level, I would think. There should be a price policy to match new vs old rooms.

Ok to begin with, Customer Service is all about the experience. The Europe Hotel and Resort has one of the best customer service experience i have seen.
On arrival was met by the most experienced ,curteous and professional gentleman named padriagh anyone could ever meet. This was the start of my experience at this hotel.. Proceeded to the hotel reception and was greeted in again a professional and courteous manner by very well trained staff. Checked in and was again escorted to my room in which was breathtaking overlooking the beautiful lakes of killarney. Lovely spacious bright room.
Bathroom immaculate, spotless clean, plenty towels. This seems like the start of a fantastic stay. Decided then id go for a swim. Breathtaking wasnt the word. An outdoor hottub overlooking the lakes of killarney, After my excercise returned to my room for a rest and got ready for Dinner in the hotel. Decided to eat in the hotel as the menu looked lovely, and once again was good choice, top class food and service. Went into killarney centre for an hour but returned again to the hotel europe where we sat in the beautiful foyer of the hotel over a few glasses of wine. My experience at this hotel had to have been one of the best i have ever stayed in, I nearly cried at having to leave it all behind me.A must for anyone that would like a top class hotel, great food, scenery that wouldnt see anywhere else.The heading says it all.
