Had a wonderful stay here. Our room was modern, with a very nice jacuzzi tub, and a very nice shower in the bathroom. Conveniently located in Killarney, only steps from all the shops. Breakfast was good, not a very big selection though. Parking was about 150 yards from the hotel door, but there is a place to park out front...

We stayed here for 1 night in March. Although the location of the guesthouse is fairly central, the guesthouse itself did not live up to its 4-stars. The receptionist was rather rude when we wanted to check in, as he asked us to take place and wait for people arriving behind us to check in first.....After waiting 10 mins, he...

Thank you for your review. I remember you well. On check-in there were people ahead of you not behind you. In fact quite elderly people, and here at The Fairview it is very important to welcome guests on arrival. It was not our intention to offend you, however we have a policy at The Fairview to respect each guest as...

Another superb stay at The Fairview - the perfect base in Killarney and the height of quality and luxury. Breakfast is amazing and the rooms are spacious and finely decorated - you won't want to leave!. A warm welcome as always from James and his team and nothing is too much trouble. Looking forward to our next visit

I recently stayed here for pleasure, and was delighted to see they permitted pets. Three adults and one medium-sized mutt. Sometimes when hotels permit pets you expect the standard to be lower, but this was not the case AT ALL. The hotel was beautifully clean, exquisitely decorated, and spacious. The breakfast was filling and divine. Our group consisted of two...

My first experience staying in The Fairview, Killarney was the summer of 2012 with my family. We checked in for one night and ended up staying five! While Killarney is a wonderful place, with a variety of things to do, places to eat, with the friendliest of people, The Fairview is simply the best "base" to enjoy it from. Location...

What a gorgeous place to stay in Killarney!! Myself and my wife are just back from an overnight stay in this wonderful guesthouse.

The Fairview was a great choice. They upgraded me to a beautiful room with a jacuzzi (the benefit of going to Ireland in February, perhaps). The staff was friendly and helpful, and overall guaranteed that my stay in Killarney was terrific!
