Nice hotel located in the center of Killarney. Inexpensive paid parking is available across the street. Our room was good size and very comfortable. Breakfast was very good. We stayed on a Saturday night so the price was pretty high but so were the other hotels in the area. We ended up coming back to Killarney for Sunday night and...

Arrived at this hotel & were impressed at how homey the people and hotel were. I got sick & the woman that ran the place was bringing tea to my room. Even made a doc appt for me. Felt like they really cared about the comfort of their guests. HIGHLY recommend.

The hotel is excellently located for a trip to Killarney.

It's also about 10 minutes away from Killarney house and gardens and the national park. I enjoyed the breakfast, which you...

Stayed for one night before starting the drive the Ring of Kerry and amidst the wild Atlantic way! Lovely warm welcome and clean comfortable room. Only downside was the noise of builders early morning. Obviously renovations going on with large boarded area beside main entrance. Free parking is a bit of a red herring as all parking is free overnight...

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Fairview. While it is conveniently located and clean, it is very noisy. You can hear people walking in their rooms, talking, showering and opening and closing doors. Breakfast was ok, nothing special.

Staff were very friendly and the place was spotless. Rooms are done to a very high standard. Next time I'll try the big bath :-) Met the owner the next morning and he wanted to make sure my stay was 100%. I'll be booking here again the next time I visit Kilarney

Stayed at The Fairview guesthouse for 4 days in September 2016. We had a large room. Very quiet but no view to talk about. The breakfast was very good, but at times crowded. The guesthouse has a great location in the center of Killarney with lots of restaurants in the vicinity. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed...

I would recommend the Fairview guesthouse to anyone traveling to Killarney. The staff was outstanding! Especially Ann who really made our experience fantastic! Location was great and within walking distance of everything in Killarney. James the owner was also very accommodating and helping us with our every day needs . We will return.
