Aghadoe Heights Review

Once inside this large, modern hotel you'll soon forget its blocklike external appearance, as the entrancing panorama of Killarney's lakes spread out before you casts its spell. It's hard to take your eyes off the view, as the famously changeable Killarney weather scuds across the skies (sunsets are not to be missed). As for the interior, standard international-hotel decor 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 Lake Room Restaurant has perfect views; the interior is cozy with wood paneling, while the Heights Lounge and Bar offers casual dining. The Spa has a full range of treatments, or you can exhale in the Thermal Suite to banish any post-golfing or post-hiking aches.
