We stayed at the Fairview in January. Unfortunately we were very disappointed with this "guesthouse" When booking our room online i requested a specific executive room which corresponed to its picture on their website but before we arrived I received a phone call to tell me that to get that room I would need to upgrade as it was the...

This is by far the best guesthouse in Killarney. Stylish, great customer service, great value for money, and centrally located. I have stayed here many times (for business purposes) and just got around writing a review. I have stayed in many of the rooms and they're all so comfortable, clean, and great value for money. However, the penthouse suite is...

We had two rooms here and they were great, clean, spacious, helpful staff, great food, arranged our trips for us, free wifi. Only downside is the car park is a 5 min walk but you can unload outside the fairview. When I visit Killarney I will definitely stay here. Hotel location was great .

Stayed in The Fairview recently with my financé over Valentines and loved it. We stayed in an junior/mini suite, and although it didn't look as big as the website pictures portrayed it was a nice size and any more space would probably have been wasted on us. It's less than a 5 minute walk to the train station and all...

We were greeted by Anne O'Neill. She won our hearts. She had the warmest Irish welcome in all of Ireland. She was gracious, helpful and kind. We found the hotel to be small and cozy, but it was very clean, well appointed and had all the amenities that we needed. We felt like we were in a real Irish hotel....
