Historical Traveller Reviews of Loch Lein Country House Hotel
Best Experience in Ireland!from lv2travlChantilly
Wonderful hospitality and outstanding accommodationfrom JaackeVon
We contacted the operators directly and actually got our rooms at a lower rate than what we were expecting. However, when we arrived, we immediately knew we managed to snag a genuine bargain.
Paul and Annette were kind enough to give us two of their best rooms. The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated, with a firm bed and comfy sofa and lounge chairs. The bathroom had separate shower and bath tub, with dual wash basins no less.
Last but not least was the view from the rooms. While not located right by the Killarney lake, you can nonetheless wake up to a nice view that stretches as far as the eye can see (or as far as the fog lets you!)
Breakfast was plentiful and cooked to order. Travel into Killaryney town centre is less than 7 minutes by car.
Paul also gave us great tips on which sights to see - and when! One of his tips was to drive along the Gap of Dunloe only in the evening, when there are no more jaunting cars (horse drawn carriages) slowing you down. In summer the sun doesn't really set until past ten so you can still see the scenary very well.
If it wasn't for the considerable allure of the Irish countryside we could've simply stayed in our rooms all day - especially when it just wouldn't stop raining.

A Perfect Gem!! Paradise!from Cooloo
Reviewer: Glynn Clan From Galway!
We have stayed at this beautiful Country House Hotel numerous times and they have excelled themselves everytime. Paul and Annette are the best hosts ever! Their food is of Five Star quality and beautifully presented.
We have stayed in the Plaza (noisy), Hotel Europe and lots of other so called Luxury Hotels in Killarney but Loch Lein is the best by far. Killarney IS VERY NOISY but here is the most tranquil place you could stay in. Yes its out from the town but only 3 kms and its cheap to go by taxi.
Just head out towards the Killorglin Road, after Fossa Church take first left. Its easy to miss as its only a by - road.
Fantastic hotel. Staying again in August!
A magnificent holiday in a beatiful locationfrom senior_79
Your Search is Over-This is the Place!!from pvfont
Our first night was a Sunday and we arrived after 8pm. We had gotten lost trying to find the Loch Lein through no fault of theirs. Somehow, our itinerary only had the name of the hotel and no phone or directions. Many helpful people gave us directions but navigating the many roundabouts proved to be a challenge. Finally we arrived and I was near tears with the frustration of not knowing where to go. Not to worry. Annette and Paul, our lovely hosts made us feel immediately welome. They showed us into our spacious room with a beautiful view of the lake. There happened to be a full moon. Though it was late, we were offered dinner in our room which we gratefully accepted. Paul is a superb chef and we enjoyed a five star dinner with a lovely wine.
Over the next four days and nights we were given the best of service. The full Irish breakfast is excellent with an array of fruits, cereals, cheeses, breads and yogurt along with hot breakfast cooked to order. There is no extra charge for this great meal.
Every morning Paul would ask us where we were off to that day and would produce helpful maps and suggestions to make our day's adventure a great one. Several of our excursions were made because of his suggestions that we would not have known about. We loved spending our days visiting the many magnificent sights of Ireland, but always looked forward to our return in the late afternoon to the Loch Lein. The hotel sits on a large open property overlooking a beautiful lake. It is private and quiet. There are lovely lanes and fields to walk in.
If you plan to go into town at night and know you will be returning late, Paul will be happy to give you a key to let you in.
Paul and Annette offer the relaxed atmosphere of a country home with the service of a five star hotel. Their attention to detail is superb and it all totals into an experience that we will never forget.

Loch Lein made our wedding dayfrom SpencerLondon
Loch Lein was amazing and magical. The rooms are a great size and no matter what room you're in, you are spoiled with the view. The rooms are definitely on-par in size with your bigger hotel. Paul and Annette catered our entire buffet wedding menu and the food was exceptional. The quality and presentation was more than up to standard and the staff that helped out over the weekend were friendly, efficent and courteous.
The most breathtaking thing about Loch Lein is it's location. The view over the lakes and mountains are so spectacular. We felt really special and were treated like royalty for the whole weekend. Both our families have Loch Lein firmly placed in our memories and for any occasion, be it birthdays, anniversaries, or just a weekend away, I would recommend it highly
A very special part of Irelandfrom maczek
The accommodation at Loch Lein is of a very high standard. The rooms are big and well appointed. The lounge is a great place to relax in, where one can read or just soak up the wonderful view from the window. The bar is well stocked with some fantastic Irish whiskys. After a day touring the countryside, walking, fishing or playing on one of the many golf courses situated in Kerry and an evening sitting at the bar or relaxing in the longe finishes off a wonderful day.
Who could ask for anything more! The cuisine at Loch Lein is also of a very high standard
