Reviewed November 10, 2013

stayed one night here to do the ring of Kerry the next day.Place has amazing view of the lake.The staff is attentive helpful and just excellent.I also drink copious amounts of coffee everywhere I go and the young man who kindly prepared me coffee w/ french press and delivered to my room made some of the best coffee I have ever had in my life!(and I have experienced portland,seattle,hawaii,italy and paris!). The bed wasnt exactly a tempur-pedic but it was ok. The rooms are clean and have all the necessities. The breakfast was really good-all in all a great choice, I would go back in a heartbeat and highly recommend

Note: my yardstick is with starwood hotels(usually westin level) from sheraton to the luxury collection- so compared to those this hotel stacks up nicely.

This was our first trip to Ireland and research on tripadvisor led us to this place and we weren't disappointed. Paul and Annette were the perfect host and overly helpful Killarney less than 5 minutes away and the perfect place for live pub music.

Our friendly welcome set the tone of a wonderful stay here. This beautiful country house looks across the loch to Muckross house, it's gardens are as pretty as the decor. Breakfast and dinner were both delicious and good value, the rooms large, beautifully presented and maintained. It's an easy drive or taxi ride to Killarney. It's close enough for a day trip around the ring of Kerry or Dingle. The little bar and its range of whiskeys is a lot of fun, try a 'Jimmy'. We hope to return one day

Well we are back in New Zealand and Ireland is now a misty, rosy, nostalgic and wonderful memory for us both. We thoroughly enjoyed our three day stay at Loch Lein Country House Hotel (in Fossa - Killarney) in fact, so much so that we returned a week later for another three nights. Paul & Annette are so hospitable and professional in every aspect and their exceptional hotel is situated only a field away from the largest lake in Killarney called Lock Lein. From this small and very comfortable hotel we could walk through their garden down to the lakeside path. What a magical experience this was for us. The hotel is peaceful and very gracious. All the staff are extremely helpful and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and nothing is ever too much trouble. We could not fault it! Well done Paul & Annette for providing a truly superb experience – one of the best in all our travels around the world. Killarney has left a lasting impression on us both – we just loved it and I think our enjoyment had a huge amount to do with our very comfortable room which was large, had excellent beds and great bathroom, the delicious breakfasts and oh that ever ready offer of a pot of Irish tea when we arrived back from our walks or visiting the local sights – the Gap of Dunloe, the Beara Peninsula & Muckross Castle to name a few!!

One of the highlights was an evening at Molly Gallivan’s in Bonane on the N71 between Kenmare and Glengariff which was less than an hour ‘s drive from the hotel. We highly recommend going to one of these evenings which are normally held every Tuesday but make sure you book ahead. It is a fabulous experience and you will learn a little bit of Irish history while you are there. It is held in the 200 year old cottage where after a three course traditional Irish meal, you will be entertained by a very funny award winning story accompanied by live Irish music in front of a real peat fire! It is about the homecoming of an Irish man returning from America after thirty years away. He had left Ireland during the potato famine. Go and see it, you will laugh out loud at the great Irish humour and will not regret the long drive back!! Make sure you stay at Loch Lein Country House Hotel for a wonderful experience of warm, elegant, and very Irish hospitality! Thank you Paul, thank you Annette and all of your staff. We will come back to Killarney and it will be with you that we will stay!

Room Tip: Our room looked over the garden and lake - beautiful, peaceful, perfect!

My group was doing a "Best of Ireland" tour and we stayed here for two nights. The people knew who we were as we pulled up. The were SUPER nice and accommodating. The stay was top notch. THe room was great and WIFI strong. A small bar in the hotel has everything you need.

Great location. Great breakfast and the views are to DIE FOR!!!!

I now know why this place is rated #1 in the area.

The house is gorgeous.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
The rooms are large and clean. The bathroom has separate shower and bath.
There were several breakfast options available.
The hotel is only 10 mins from town.

Would definitely recommend and stay again.

If you are looking for peace and tranquility in a setting that is idyllic with hosts that are the opitimy of Irish hospitality then Loch Lein Country House has it all.
We have stayed many times in and around Killarney, including the 5 star hotels, but we keep returning to Loch Lein because for service, quality and attention to detail we haven't found anywhere to match.
Annette and Paul make everyone welcome and it is their personal touches that make the difference as can be seen from the reviews they get.
