My mother and I spent five nights at the Fairview and loved every second of our trip! The hotel is very central in Killarney, so it's a great base for exploring the town and the rest of Kerry. All the staff are extremely kind, helpful and accommodating. All their recommendations for restaurants, tours, activities, and even ice creams, were absolutely...

We stayed here for 2 nights over the long weekend. It was my first time staying here. Getting to the hotel is easy, being only a 5 minute walk from the train station. When we arrived we were welcomed and given a room which suited us very well. The room had great space, good facilities, and a nice sized en...

Just had a fantastic four days in Killarney and loved it. The Fairview cannot be bettered. Great central location, friendly staff, tasteful rooms, great food and the general ambience of the hotel is second to none. It made our stay all the more magical. I would highly recommend it to anyone. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Fairview x

We were upgraded from a B&B we had booked, and everything was just perfect, from the nice and efficient staff, to the well decorated and comfortable room (with heating, appreciable in April...) to the generous breakfast. Oh, just one thing: you should get rid of the noisy, ugly and probably useless ice machine on the 2nd floor hall...

Many thanks for your lovely review. We have booked in that ice machine for a full service and the noise is now gone. So many of these machined have let us down, but this particular one is so reliable and dependable. I will chat to the executive management to see if we can improve the aesthetics.

Check in was a breeze at this lovely inn/hotel. Front desk was awaiting me by name. Room was spacious and clean with a nice view of the town and Killarney national park.

The Fairview Hotel sits at the heart of the pub area in Killarney. This property is an older one that is undergoing extensive renovation and upgrade. Workers are still in the building! Also, particularly on weekends, this property is in the midst of what seemed to be party central. The bar crowd is just down the street and noise could...

Spent two nights in Killarney, and could have spent another. Beautiful town, great shopping and food, and a lovely room at the Fairview. Included breakfast was one of the best we had on our trip. The kids were so happy to have the option of crepes instead of sausage for a change!
