Fodor's Review

Once inside this large, modern hotel you'll soon forget its blocklike external appearance, as the entrancing panorama of Killarney's lakes casts its spell. It's hard to take your eyes off the view, and sunsets are not to be missed. The interior, in standard international-hotel style, is enlivened by an impressive collection of original Irish art. Guest rooms are spacious, with plenty of luxury touches, including a fruit bowl, fluffy robes, and a booklet on hiking trails that start right outside the hotel's door. The cozy, wood-paneled Lake Room Restaurant has perfect views; the Heights Lounge and Bar offers casual dining. The Spa has a full range of treatments—exhale in the Thermal Suite to banish any golfing or hiking aches.
