Lake Hotel, Killarney
Beautiful Views and Overpriced Food
The views from the hotel are absolutely amazing, and the National Park itself is beautiful. However, the food and service at the Lake Hotel is poor to say the least. Both restaurants are extremely overpriced for the food quality they provide. You will be happier if you eat at a restaurant in town. For example, Fish and Chips from the Bistro costs about 18 Euros, despite it being just average Fish and Chips. You can go to a restaurant in town and get better Fish and Chips for about half the price. Sadly, the service isn't great either for a hotel that prides itself (throughout the hotel) on it being family owned and operated. It appeared as if the hotel was very under-staffed, as the the staff throughout the hotel seemed in a constant rush. This included the servers at the restaurant, which resulted in several mixups and mistakes during our visit. If you stay here, enjoy the views and grounds, but avoid the restaurants and save your money.

Great views and location
Great location and views. Our best hotel during our 9 day journey through Ireland. Next time we will stay longer than one night at this hotel.

Fantastic views, great history, wish there was AC.
The lake hotel is amazing in terms of the views and scenery. We were blown away with the view from the room, and from the patio bistro/bar. The history of the hotel is very interesting, and the fact the hotel is so old makes the architecture and layout very unique. The only downsides that we encountered was that the beds are not the most comfortable, and there is no air conditioning or fans in the rooms. We visited in July, and it was apparently a pretty hot July this year, so even with the windows open at night, we were pretty warm throughout which made it difficult to get a good night’s sleep, especially with the not-so-comfy bed. That being said, we would still go back in a heartbeat, because the good qualities far outweighed the bad, and this is a truly beautiful hotel and grounds.
