... the day so we simply walk around the castle. The kids take up residence in a big tree, full of thick curvy branches, perfect for climbing. They are playing B&B. I tell them we are leaving and Kaeleb says, "Ok, we just have to pay our bill." We head for home. I cook spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. While the kids eat inside, the adults enjoy the sun and scenery outside. It's a beautiful evening to just relax on the ...
... owner, Sean Murphy. He even brought us into the bar to take more pictures with him. Crazy coincidence that the man we asked to take our picture turned out to be the owner of pub! Fun fact: There are no predators in Ireland so the farm animals are free to roam the hills and fields. Discovery of the day.....apparently one person can do all jobs at the Scott's Hotel. The same person was our bartender, room maintenance man and house ...
I am getting very frustrated. Don't know what I am doing wrong but keep on losing my scripts. Am getting fed up with writing the same thing over and over!! Sorry if you are getting no info or photos.

... guy driving the other cart basically told him to suck it up. Our driver Ted said that the horse was not accustomed to such severe weather, and you know that if the Irish horse is having a problem dealing with the weather, then it must be really really bad. We passed many other carts heading back down the hill, and there was some question as to whether or not there would be a boat driver willing to come out on the lakes to get us, but they got the word that one boat guy ...
... apparently stems from the admiration of the view given by Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting during their 1861 visit.
We continued our drive through Moll's Gap heading towards Kenmare, taking in the breathtaking views of the McGillycuddy's Reeks Mountains. We could certainly see why it is said that the Ring of Kerry is some of the most beautiful views in all of Ireland. The road didn't have any decent pull ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Loch Lein Country House Killarney
4-Star B&B at 3-Star Prices in Ireland
We just returned from 2 weeks in Ireland, staying at B&Bs everywhere we went. One of the best B&Bs we stayed in was the Loch Lein Country House just outside of Killarney. The house was quite modern, with excellent quality throughout the facility. For example, our bathroom had crown molding! The room itself was quite large, with a beautiful view of the lake. For those that need walking access to the Killarney city center, you're out of luck. It is several miles to the shops and restaurants. Nevertheless, since the big draw here is the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Penisula, this B&B is in a perfect location right on the route. Finally, the manager, Paul, gave us excellent advice on where to travel, what to avoid, and where to hike. In summary, at 60 euro per person, this is an excellent B&B for Killarney.
Lovely Loch Lein
I need to share my happy experiences in County kerry with you all
Still the unspoilt landscape and people.
Loch lein Country House Hotel just outside Killarney was our base and what a charming place it was for us .
A rare family run house of hospitality Paul and wife Annette were at hand to guide us in our trip of a lifetime stay in the Killarney area .
It was a home from home and we were very impressed we will be back and cannot speak highly enough of our stay in kerry and Irelands west coast

Loved the views, loved the homeliness and friendliness of staff
I stayed in the Loch Lein House Hotel recently with my family. Three kids and hubby. Wow. The hotel is situation overlooking the lakes in Killarney. To wake up to the views everymorning was heaven. The staff were so homely and friendly to all of us, including my noisy kids. The foods was excellent. A breakfast that kept us all going all day, whatever the kids wanted and cooked whatever way. Great advice on where to go, where to visit. In a busy environment that we all live in, Paul and Annette seem to have time for everyone, kinda unusual. The dinner in the evening was exquisite and again cater for the rugrats, nothing was a problem.
We will be back!! Well done folks and the best of luck.
Very nice if you want a hotel ~4km outside the city.
Beautiful hotel with gorgeous lake front views! We had a nice room, clean, huge bathroom, and a view that was wonderful. We were suprised that this facility is much more of a hotel than a B&B, which was fine. We were farther away from Killarney center than expected, and when we arrived back at the Loch Lein House after an evening/night in the city we were locked out. It took quite a few minutes for someone to come open the door and let us back in. Rather uncomfortable. That said, however, Annette and Pau were charming and kind, offering suggestions the next day on where to go, etc. They even offered us breakfast after we slept in too late to make it! It was peaceful and quiet, lovely.
Little Gem of a Hotel
My family and I just spent a night at this lovely, small (about 25 rooms) hotel in Killarney. The views of Killarney Lakes, the beautiful, spacious rooms and the personal service were outstanding. I would recommend this hotel highly.
Warmth of Irish Hospitality
The first thing that hit us was the tranquility of the setting and location.Only 5kms from Killarney in Fossa, Loch Lein House Hotel has great views of the lower lake. Its interior is sumptuously comfortable, with thick carpeting and deep sofas that you immediately want to sink into. The lounge and dining room look out over the lake and mountains beyond. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated, roomy, with suberb bathrooms, and fantastically comfortable beds. Paul and Annette Corridan are exceptional hosts and cannot do enough for you, as well as being fonts of knowledge about the area.(When Paul suggests a particular sight or route to take, listen to him!) The food, breakfast and dinner was excellent every time, and we could not wait for the next meal!
Definately a place to stay and come back to!! Well done Paul and Annette.!
Great Irish Country House
We just returned from a whirlwind tour of Ireland and Scotland and this was the best place we stayed! The location is a short distance outside of Killarney just outside the town of Fossa and easy to get to via rental car or taxi. The place itself is located on beautiful grounds overlooking the vista that makes up the National Park. The hosts, Paul and Annette, are superb in making you feel comfortable and "at home". The included "Irish Breakfast" is superb and the view from the dining room is simply gorgeous! The rooms are quite large, are tastefully decorated and have bathrooms that are well above the standard type that you find in the UK.
But probably the best feature is that this Country House sits at the entrance to the National Park and the Ring of Kerry. You can easily experience both of these with a rental auto or tour buses that stop at the front door (or they have bicycles if you wish to go on your own). The tourist sites that surround this house are too numerous to mention, but you could easily spend a full week here and not see everything that is available.
We fully intend to visit Ireland again and spend more than three days. Coffey's Loch Lein House Hotel will be the place we will stay!
Loved Coffey's Loch Lein Hotel
I stayed at Coffey's Loch Lein Hotel in Killarney for ten days... They could not have done more for us... Their Irish breakfast was delicious and their evening meal very satisfying... The hotel is gorgeous and the country and views exquisite... I can't wait to go back...
Wow what a place
Make this unique place your last stop in Europe ... you will not want to leave so don't!!! It's romantic .. it's fun ... it's peaceful if that is what you are looking fo for. If you want golf its within walking distance the scenery is all around and the folks .. what can I say .. they treated me like family. I took a day trip through the lakes... another trip around the ring of Kerry.. the bus will pick you up at the door and return you to home. I stayed three weeks and just did day trips from here. ... train to Dublin (When it runs) ... races ... bicycle tours ... even saw Daniel O'Donnell's show for PBS taped in Killarney at the NEC centre (Watched it on PBS Detroit on Sunday night ... on again during March 17 week) Van Morrisson another show at NEC centre... entertainment all over town should not be missed before you pass from this life!!!!!
