A really great place to stay - close enough to Killarney for you to enjoy a visit but far enough away from all its hustle and bustle. Beautifully appointed large bedrooms with really big windows overlooking the Loch as well as extra large bathrooms with bath and separate shower. The communal areas and small bar added to the relaxing atmosphere... More

Really good hotel / very large bed & breakfast. Has a proper downstairs area and a small bar. Does great breakfasts (buffet + cooked breakfasts). Huge sized rooms (really big). Not ultra modern, but certainly in good modern condition (flat screen TVs etc.) and very well kept. Right beside the EUROPE Hotel in Fossa (about 10 mins drive from the... More

The wonderful room, with its big windows and beautiful bathroom, the excellent food (5🌟+, Dinner-Menu as well as Breakfast) and the great service made our stay unforgettable. Thank you so much for giving us the wonderful feeling of feeling at home, but being far away... We would love to come back some time. Cheers, the German travelers. 🙂

My husband and I really enjoyed our time at Loch Lein Country house, and even debated asking if we could stay a couple of extra days. There is so much to do in the area, and the owners gave us great advice of things to see and do that were a bit off of the tourist route. There was so... More

Just left this morning and I can't tell you how I wish I hadn't left. This place is right on the lake just outside of Killarney. The owners of this establishment are the embodiment of Irish hospitality. I felt like I was talking to old friends when filling them in about my connections to Kerry. I have been in Ireland... More

Ignoring matters of subjective taste (I am not a fan of florals and candles, but many people are) LLCHH is the absolute epitome of a perfect B&B. From the welcome tea and cake to the careful selection of coffee table books in the guest lounge, from the profusion of electrical sockets to the beautiful quality bedding, from the immaculate bathroom...

We stayed here for two nights and loved every minute of our visit. Our hosts greeted us at the door and literally rolled out the red carpet. The views from the rooms and dining room are spectacular. The only drawback was that there was no access to the lake, but it as still lovely to look at. Food and service... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and we were impressed right from the beginning. We arrived at the hotel at around 7 pm.
