“If you are going to Killarney - this is a fabulous place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

We booked a night here during our trip as our base for visiting Killarney national park. Loch Lein is amazing - it was exceedingly comfortable, the rooms were huge. Paul and Annette, the proprietors were welcoming, kind, and fountains of knowledge on the area. I've never been to a hotel/b&b like this were the owners came outside to greet me at my car!! My daughter said the hot chocolate was the best. The breakfast - poached eggs - were some of the best I've ever had. Oh, did I forget to mention the view of the lake and mountains....will definitely return to this gem!

Not to be missed if you are traveling to Southern Ireland! This country house is owned and run by
Paul & Annette who are the most friendly and gracious hosts we encounted during our 10 day trip.The Country House is gorgeous overlooking the Lake, spacious rooms, fabulous food for dinner and breakfast. Breakfast included is you so choose. And they are full of information about the Country. They sent us to places we would not have selected simply because we were unaware of the area. They have a quaint bar downstairs and the friendliest young bartender in the whole Country. Price is right so it's a must if you are traveling to Ireland!! By the way, I am a Flight Attendant and am certainly experienced in travel so I know a great deal when I see one!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Lake view!! You won't be disappointed!

Never had a personal welcome like it. Greeted by name and our bags taken up to the rooms without any fuss. 9 people + baby staying here but everyone was treated as an individual and nothing was too much trouble. Every time we came back there was a smiling welcome and the offer of tea or coffee, even when we came back after an evening meal. Great breakfasts, one of the best I've had anywhere in the world. Really nice dinner on Saturday night but as the kitchen was closed on the Sunday we went out to eat and their recommendation in Killarney was good as well. A great stay and highly recommended

My wife, my elderly father-in-law and I have just returned from a 4 day break in Kerry. The area is of course wonderful but what certainly enhanced the whole experience was the great service we received from Paul, Annette and their superb staff. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the dinners in the evening were excellent. The overall effect was of a country house gathering rather than a hotel full of disparate strangers.The location was also good for us being only 20 minutes from Kerry Airport and close enough (5 minutes drive) to Killarney.

Loch Lein Country House is not only a lovely house in an equally lovely setting it is warm, welcoming, spacious and tastefully decorated inside. Our welcome was as though we were the long awaited guest. Jerrard help us to our room immediately and delivered our luggage. Paul and Annette were so helpfull with our questions of special places to see that are not in the guide books. Our room was quite large overlooking the lake as I requested. Aminities wer equal to a 5 star hotel. Breakfast was plentiful and satisfying. If I were to return to the Killarney area, there is no other place I would stay. It is about 7-10 minutes from down town Killarney, but a short cab ride in for dinner is easy as is the return. The area Loch Lein is located in is called Fossa, just a suburb of Killarney. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with the other guests over cocktails and sharing our exciting day's adventure with each other.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking the lake.

We stayed here for one night in late May. We stayed in six hotels during our stay in Ireland, and this was our favorite. We were greeted and offered assistance with our bags as soon as we parked. We were shown directly to our room, without waiting around in the lobby. We were also given coffee and a snack upon our arrival. The room was large and very clean, with a nice view of the lake. Loch Lein's staff offered us dinner reservations, showing us the locations on a map, and telling us where we could park for those dinner spots. Loch Lein has a bar service available, and we were able to obtain drinks later in the night without any trouble. The breakfast was good, and the grounds around Loch Lein are beautiful. I definitely recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: We opted for a room with a view of the lake. The lake is beautiful, but you have to stand by the wi...
