Fodor's Review

A perfect rural retreat combining warm hospitality with a scenic location, this spacious country house is 3 km (2 miles) out of town near Killarney's famous golf courses. Run by an enthusiastic young couple, it's a peaceful, relaxing base. In the lounge you can use the tripod telescope to view Loch Lein, a short walk away across the fields. The lounge fireplace is framed by a tiny bar and spacious restaurant. A baronial wood staircase leads to the generously sized guest rooms, which offer lake or mountain views and are accented with classic mahogany furniture, plush red chenille spreads, brass bedside lamps, and huge mirrors.
