Very Historic!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 15, 2012

The Lake hotel is a very nice and historic hotel. The floors make very loud noises when you walk (ANYWHERE) and there are a lot of gaps in the windows and under the door so it gets very chilly at night and the elevator was broken so we had to carry all 4 of our HUGE bags up the stairs with no help. Besides those VERY small complaints, I would have to say we really enjoyed our stay at The Lake hotel. When we arrived, we were greeted with a beautiful blonde lady working the front desk. She was extremely nice and helpful, she did apologize for the elevator not working several times. Since it was our honeymoon, they had rose petals, fruit and chocolate set up in our room, it was a really big room and bathroom. The bathroom had a large window in it that was foggy so people can’t see in but I was still skeptical. We then went into the bar/restaurant area to have something to eat and were welcomed by a super nice bartender. He actually set us up with something to do the next day and told us all about Killarney and where we should and should not visit. We were actually a little lost with what to do so this was a lot of help. When we were done eating and drinking (of course) we walked outsite and was greeted but a VERY large deer. He was making a lot of noises and was actually really pretty. The view at this hotel is breathtaking, when we woke up in the morning I just could not believe there were view that gorgeous. They do have WI-FI but the router is in the main lobby and that was about the only place you could get good reception. They do NOT have WI-FI in the rooms. There is also a office area with computers you can use. The breakfast was 12 Euros and consisted of a Hot and Cold breakfast bar. This hotel was a great place to stay on your honeymoon because it was very romantic. There were several families from around the surround areas that come and stay at this hotel once a year.

Unique Quality: Large rooms,
Large bathrooms with up to date amenities,
Small TV with very few channels,
Free Wi-fi in Public areas only,
BEAUTIFUL views,
Good but pricey breakfast,
Wonderful staff,
bar (with music on the weekends)
restaurant,
Several lounging areas,
Castle ruins on property,
Killarney natl Park is walking distance.
I am sure I am missing stuff but this was a great hotel just old.

Directions: Next to the entrance of Killarney National Park,
Short drive into the central Killarney

A Perfect Setting for a Lovely Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 4, 2007

The Lake Hotel is absolutely charming and you could not wish for a better setting as it nestles on the shores of the world famous Lakes of Killarney.

It is a 4 star hotel which apparently was built way back in 1820 but in spite of its great age, the Killarney Lake Hotel has all the standard modern day facilities and it is only about a mile or so from Killarney town center.

We only stayed a few nights but there is plenty to do locally if you are staying longer, for example the Killarney National Park, Golf Courses and of course the ubiquitous cycle and walking paths.

If you are feeling even more energetic you can also try horseriding, climbing, fishing and many other outdoor pursuits right on the doorstep.

Not having much time, we simply used the hotel is our base for from which to explore the beautiful Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula and of course Kerry's many other fine attractions.

Unique Quality: I thought the bedrooms were outstanding. They were HUGE and particularly liked having a hot tub in the bedroom itself. Very sexy !

Directions: About 2 miles out of town - Don't know the area too well, so contact the hotel for directions.

Great weekend at the Lake Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 4, 2007

My husband and I stayed at the Lake Hotel for one Saturday night. We paid €200 for the room booking directly through the hotel. We stayed in a lake view deluxe room in the new part of the hotel and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff was very helpful at check in and when we arrived to our room there was a bottle of champagne and box of chocolates waiting for us.
The room was one of the largest hotels rooms I have ever stayed in. The décor was a little much but the ammonites were great. Large bathroom with Jacuzzi bath, separate sitting area, and a nice balcony with patio table and two chairs were some of the features we found to be outstanding for a 3 star hotel.

Unique Quality: Very large rooms
Really good views
Helpful and Friendly staff
Jacuzzi tubs in room
Out door hot tub
Free buffet breakfast
Large balcony
