“Excellent hospitality, very relaxing”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

First I would like to say we almost did not stay here after reading reviews about the rooms being loud and dirty carpet on the stairs. I'd like to say, for us, none of that was true. This was BY FAR our favorite bed and breakfast. From the moment we walked in we were treated as a guest, or more like a royal guest. The first lad was very helpful when we asked what to do in the area. He went the extra mile and surprised us with brochures and maps in our room after we asked. We ordered food delivery and the Inn keeper was very helpful when they got our order wrong and wanted to make sure we were taken care of. In the morning the breakfast was fabulous. We had a pleasant night of sleep with no noise being heard. The room was tasteful and very clean. The best bed and breakfast ever, period. Also, it is only a ten minute walk into town.

Room Tip: Choose the first floor, we did and it was excellent.

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of staying at the Lake Lodge for a total of five nights; three prior to our ten day trek along the Kerry Way, and then two upon our return. We couldn't have felt more at home. Dennis and Marie are two of the kindest and most accomodating people we had the pleasure of meeting during our three weeks in Ireland. From the moment we checked in we felt comfortable. The house is very charming and the rooms are warm, clean, and cozy. The dining area was the nicest of all the B+B's we stayed at. The showers were always hot and the towel warmer was a pleasant touch. Our room was refreshed every day without fail. Couldn't ask for more. However, what really stood out during our stay was the hospitality. I've never stayed in a place with such considerate hosts. Marie and Dennis truly care about their guests' comfort, and went out of their way to make sure our stay was as homely as could be. When we departed for our trek they gave us their personal number and told us to never hesitate to call them if we get in a bind, no matter the time. And while we have found the Irish people some of the nicest we've met in our travels, Marie and Dennis were by far our favorites. Oh, and the full Irish breakfasts were among the best we've had. It is true that they do not accept credit cards, but this is no secret or surprise, as it is advertised right on booking.com. Don't hesitate to choose the Lake Lodge if you are staying in Killarney, it was our lodging highlight of Kerry!

I brought some tourists here and they were very shocked when credit cards and cheques were not accepted. We only accept cash here (how nice for them!) we were told.
It's a bit dreary - brown decor. Breakfast was not so nice and we were disappointed by the instant coffe. We ate much better in other B and B's on our trip.
The lady of the house is frienly though.

Noisy place with doors banging late at night too.

The owners were wonderful, very helpful and very friendly. The location was perfect, just a short walk to the pubs and downtown Killarney. And very close to the national park. I have stayed here a good few times and find it excellent each time. Great Breakfast. I highly recommended

Its a great place for a short stay in Killarney. Would definately recoment it to my friends or family. House owners are very welcoming and very friendly people. They will recomend you the sightseeing spots, dining places or anything else you are looking for. Just ask them...
the only small thing that we think should be different or fixed its a bathrooms temperature. It was freezing inside the bathroom.
