Stayed for one night during a short break in Ireland. There was no down side whatsoever. From the excellent welcome when we arrived to the large and extremely comfortable room complemented by an excellent breakfast prior to departure, we would certainly recommend the Fairview highly to others.

Over last two weeks have stayed in Dublin, Sligo, Galway and the Fairview in Killarney and this guest house is the best. Great room, great friendly staff, great atmosphere and Les was the best. Breakfast menu, selections and food excellent. Bob of Busselton, Australia.
