My friend and I have just arrived back from a very relaxing night at The Europe. We were given a complimentary room upgrade and received beautiful chocolates and pink lemonade on arrival. The views from the hotel are stunning especially from the lake view rooms. We ate at The Spa café in our robes, the food was really good. We...

The breakfast wasn't great either, could really improve there, as could the lunch. Would expect a little better for the money. It was my birthday and had hoped to have a nice break,...

Ate here twice in recent months. The first time was faultless, received pleasant and professional service form Daniela. Ordered the mushroom tagliatelle which was nice, if a little bland. The second time I ate here the service wasn't great, from the time we were seated it took twenty-five minutes for our order to be taken, and another twenty-five for the...

This is best hotel I have ever visited. The service, food, experience, surroundings, breath taking views are second to none. It has a real feel of opulence in a down to earth way. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The spa experience was lovely and I had probably the best massage I've had in a long time. My husband...

This was a short getaway that we booked last minute. Overall it is a lovely hotel with beautiful views, however it is certainly overpriced for what you get. We have stayed at so many hotels that are of equal standard and much cheaper. I think realistically you are paying for the views, also the room was very warm with no...

This hotel oozes Class, the staff in each area of the facility ensure that customer expectations are exceeded at all times, the attention to detail is second to none and customer service is to the absolute highest standard possible. You cannot rate this hotel highly enough, a credit to all involved.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We arrived before check in time but we were allowed to use the facilities while we were waiting for our room. The pools and thermal spa are amazing particularly the outside pool. The location looking over the lake and mountains of killarney are sensational. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was fabulous. We...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights 21st-24th July. An amazing hotel with wonder facilities, wonderful staff, wonderful food and absolutely wonderful views. This is probably the best hotel we have stayed in, in Ireland, slightly ahead of the Four Seasons in Dublin and Castlemartyr in Cork based on its wonderful lakeside views.

Golf side hotel room is average especially given its a five star hotel. Balcony was filthy. Food is average. Pool area is lovely. Spa area is lovely. Hotel location is excellent. Hotel grounds and view of the lake are amazing.
