Loch Lein Country House is a delightful country inn outside of Killarney. It sits at the end of a very quiet lane, on a lake with beautiful views, but the setting is just the beginning. Paul and Annette are wonderful, personal hosts. You truly feel like "guests" in their home. The rooms are comfortable, and the food excellent at both breakfast and dinner. Paul and Annette have good advice on what to see, where to go and local favorites. If you are planning travel or activities in the Killarney or County Kerry areas, stay here. You will be glad you did.

We spent 10 days driving around Ireland and this was by far the best place we stayed. Paul and Annette made the two nights we planned to stay there SO nice that we decided to stay another! The location is an easy drive to Killarney and a great base for checking out all that the Ring of Kerry, Gap of Dunloe, and Dingle have to offer. We stayed in two oversized family rooms that slept 3 -4 each and were well decorated and comfortable. Paul, Annette, and their staff cater to your every need - from making you a decadent breakfast to acting as an extremely knowledgeable tour guide. This place is a MUST!

We planned a week touring around Ireland to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and were looking for somewhere to spend the special night. We wanted a quiet and romantic hideaway and after checking on Trip Advisor we decided on Loch Lein.
We were so glad we did, the setting was idyllic with wonderful views across the lake to the mountains beyond. Paul and Annette made us feel so at home with numerous offers of tea and coffee whenever we were sat in the lounge and advice on where to go and what to see in the area, they really seem to have got the true meaning of the legendary "Irish hospitality". Our room was huge and beautifully furnished and yet still felt cosy. We will certainly be going back to Loch Lein and this time for a longer visit. It is ideally situated for all the wonderful sites of the west coast, including the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsular.

Just returned from a 10 driving holiday in Ireland and Loch Lein was by far the highlight of our stay. From start to finish Paul, Annette and their staff could not do enough for us. It was the perfect place to wind down after a full day of driving. The views are outstanding, the service by far the best we received anywhere, the accommodations were beautiful, and absolutely spotless! My husband and I had dinner in the dining room the first night there and what a pleasant surprise! From the appetizer to the dessert it was the best!! The service was impeccable, everything was cooked to perfection! It was hands down the best meal we had in Ireland! The only regret we had was not dining a second time with them before we left. If I had to make any suggestions to those considering staying at Loch Lein it would be to make plans for the end of your trip and not the beginning, as Loch Lein will spoil you for any place else!

We arrived at Loch Lein Country House after a long drive from Galway. We could not have been more thrilled with the place! The views are absolutely breathtaking, the hospitality incredible, the food excellent, and our room was to die for. We so enjoyed ourselves that we stayed an extra night - I would have loved to spend a week there were it not for the many places we planned to see in Ireland.

We use Tripadvisor regularly and know that sometimes reviews can hype up some places that aren't that great (and likewise criticize others unnecessarily), but we cannot say enough great things about our experience at this hotel. Highly recommend it, and also highly recommend visiting Killarney National Park. Really an amazing vacation.

We (my grandson and I) arrived at Loch Lein Country House a couple hours prior to check in time. We were pleasantly greeted by Annette who served coffee and cookies while our room was being prepared. Loch Lein is in a beautiful setting and our spacious room (full size and twin beds) had a beautiful lake and mountain view. Paul came in and talked to grandson about golf since golfing had been arranged for grandson. We spent two nights here; breakfast was delicious. Paul and Annette gave us suggestions on things to do and see so we kept busy. Loch Lein was a distance from the sights we saw and the things we did so it would be difficult to get around without a rental car which we had. I would highly recommend this hotel. We stayed at six different hotels during our visit to Ireland and weren't disappointed in any of them. However, Loch Lein would be at the top of our list.
