... 3.5 hours. The road was barely enough room for a car and a shoulder by Canadian standards yet it was a two way street of 100km/ hr speed limit. Dennis busted it once on the only straight away to get it to 100 , just to say he did 100km/h on the Ring of Kerry. Great tour. We are now in the town of Killarney which is so adorable. Place is full of hikers, bikers for the national park, and tourists from all over. Off to a pub for some ...
... Castle was built in the 1500's and abandoned in the 1700's. You could consider it a real fixer-upper, and make a killing renting out rooms...
The road to Dublin wasn't bad- mostly highway, and steady, but not downpour, rain. At the halfway point across country we were desperate for a pit stop, so turned off into a village. Very slow going with many cars in tiny lanes- finally somebody noticed a grocery store, and we managed ...
... as Americans.
We didn't reach Galway until about 11:30 on Tuesday morning and by the time we found the office that offers ferries to the Aran islands we had just missed the last one for the day. :( So we stopped for tea at a lovely little cafe and then headed to Doolin to see if there were any ferries leaving from there. Sadly they had no other ones for the day either so we had initially planned to drive back up there today to catch a morning ...
... funny... Then we went off to Torc Waterfall, which is part of the national park. It was only a short walk down to the waterfall, but we went for a bit of a hike up and around it, in a bit of a circle to get back to the bus. That was the day I first encountered midgies!!! Tiny little insects that were just horrible! Flying all around your face, and some people were getting bitten. It was okay while we were walking, but when we were standing around looking ...
... holes - the original one and one irregular shaped (pick-shaped) hole to the lower left of the orIginal hole that had been created by repeated strumming. What a voice he had! We also met up with an English couple about our age in the bar who lived in Manchester and had taken the car ferry from Angelsea. The trip took about 3 hours to cross the Irish Sea. Not a bad alternative to flying and much cheaper, as long as the weather is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Loch Lein Country House Killarney
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
Robert and family NYC
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.
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!
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.
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...
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!!!!!
