Loch Lein Country House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 28, 2011

We arrived at Loch Lein after a 26 hour overseas journey from the United States. Paul, our host, literally ran out to greet us and help with the luggage. After we got settled in our room he brought us tea and homemade bread as we sat outside enjoying the beautiful view of the lake and mountains. The room was exceptionally nice with big beautiful windows we could actually open. We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel and the food was fabulous. This stay was a real treat, filled with wonderful Irish hospitality. I would love to return again.

Room Tip: Lakeview rooms are the best.

First impressions are very important. We were met by Matthew who took our bags from the car to our room. The owners, Paul and Annette cordially welcomed us as we walked through the door, gave us the room key, as well as a cup of tea. Throughout our stay, Paul and Annette made us feel at home and genuinely cared for our well-being. Paul also helped to guide us around town. The room had his and hers robes and slippers, a warm and extremely comfortable room; and, a terrific view of the lake and countryside. The breakfast was lovely and very filling. We opted to have supper at the hotel on 2 occasions and were given outstanding fare, matched with an appropriate beverage. A big part of our trip to Ireland was to experience the Irish people-we have met no lovelier people than all those associated with the Loch Lein hotel.

The Loch Lein Country House was easily one of the best places we stayed in Ireland. My wife and I were doing a tour of the Ring of Kerry and wanted something that would let us avoid the "Bus Crowds" that you can encounter in this part of Ireland.

This place was amazing. We wished we could spend more time there. Paul and Annette (the owners) were great. The meals were first rate. If we make it back to Ireland, we'll definitely make sure we come back, and next time we'll stay longer. There is a lot to do nearby and the surrounding area is beautiful.

Room Tip: Ask. The staff aims to please!

Paul and Annette provided a six-star experience. The breakfast was fantastic. The rooms provide modern amenities in an old-world Irish charm. Paul was kind enough to lend me his clubs so that I could play golf at one of the most prestigious courses in all of Ireland. The location is gorgeous, placed on Loch Lein. The views are spectacular. It is quiet, but close proximity to the lively nightlife of downtown. The best part of the hotel is Paul and Annette. They are the most gracious of hosts. The least part enjoyed of the trip was having to leave. I would highly recommend all travelers going to Killarney to experience Loch Lein.

This Hotel is breathtakingly beautiful. We stayed only 2 nights and the location is perfect for exploring the beautiful Killarney area. Our room overlooked the most picturesque view that could have been taken from a Hollywood movie scene. Beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable suite. Breakfast was outstanding and service was flawless. Paul and Annette could not have done any better in keeping us happy and flowing with praise...

My wife and I have stayed at many fine hotels from San Francisco to Venice.None beat the overall experience we had at Loch Lein Country House. The area is wonderful-the hotel is well located for great day trips-the views from the hotel are spectacular-the rooms are great-food excellent-but nothing beats the owners. We weren't there 10 minutes before Paul made us feel like old friends. He and Annette were great at suggesting where to go or where to eat. The place and the rooms are immaculate. If you're looking for a beautiful area with lots nearby to do yet still relax after a long day then this is the place-hands down.Enjoy!
