“Overall a good stay !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

I recently stayed at the spacious yet compact Loch Lein Country house. The hotel is a hiden gem in killarneys beautiful countryside. It is a credit to Annette and Paul to how they keep it running to such a high level. The one thing I will notch them down on is the manner to which one of their staff members treated me throughout my stay which was just a little common to a hotel of this class. Overall I did enjoy my stay and would recommend it to associates.

We stayed at Loch Lein for one night during our summer holiday in Ireland. The hotel is tucked away from the main road but easy to locate and a just short jaunt into Kilarney. Loch Lein is a lovely hotel with a very personalised feel and welcome from the owners and staff. The owners, Paul & Annette are very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and provided some great ideas for trips out in the local area. The rooms are large and comfortable and the lake view rooms are spectacular. It was lovely to sit in the room and look out of the huge window onto the beautiful calm lake vista. The food was superb ~ great steaks and delicious desserts.

Room Tip: If possible, ask for a Lakeside view room - you won't be disappointed

Spacious rooms, great views, heart-warming breakfast and lovely staff. We were sad tl leave Doolin andvthe rolling countryside until we were shown our room at Loc Lein. Only wish we could stay longer. If we come back to Ireland, we will definitely come back here.

After a long day of driving and sightseeing it was so refreshing to arrive here. Check in by Annette was so carefree and welcoming. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Nothing is a problem for Paul and Annette and their breakfast and evening meals are a delight. Two other staff members should be mentioned as well for their caring service. Patrick and Gerard. Overall we found this place to be absolutely delightful and congratulate and thank Paul and Annette for the manner in which they looked after us during our stay.

My Mom and I are just finishing up a 3 week trip to Ireland and I can honestly say this was the nicest place we stayed. Paul and Annette have created the most perfect haven. The property sits in a very tranquil setting overlooking the beautiful lake. Rooms were spacious and spotless, afternoon tea was always available by gracious Gerard, after a long day of sightseeing and the breakfast was great. (Sorry we missed the dinner) Killarney was a stones throw away and the Gap of Dunloe just around the corner! The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the right side of the building for the best views but could be noisier.

What a beautiful property and location. Hosts were amazing and always available and eager to help with everything from getting you a drink, helping with the luggage or providing recommendations. Views of lake, islands and mountains were stunning. Great dinner but we didn't stay to check out breakfast as we slept in. Even though we were past the breakfast time however they still offered us breakfast.

This place was wonderful, a decent sized and beautifully presented room. The Hotel itself is in an inspiring setting near the lake. The staff were wonderful and helpful. My husband was ill when we arrived and we needed to find a doctor. All arranged in a couple of minutes - so helpful. We ate in the hotel restaurant on both nights we were there and the food was also wonderful and well presented. Breakfasts also great. Very reasonably priced for the quality I thought. Would recommend this to anyone for a base while exploring Killarney, Dingle Peninsula and the Rink of Kerry.
