An excellent B&B just outside the main town. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived - our hosts could not do enough for you. The rooms were huge with water views and excellent fixtures throughout. Dining was excellent. Ideal stay to visit the Ring of Kerry.

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!!!!!

... and it seems that the town is full at the moment. We find the tourist information (TI) to get some maps for the Killarney National Park which is right across the road from the town. Then we head to a restaurant for lunch but find that at nearly noon, Killarney is still in breakfast menu mode so the kids share pancakes, Jim has French Toast and I have eggs benedict for our lunch. Then onwards to the Dunnes department store slash supermarket to stock up ...
... done on my trip. I was up early to drive for 1 ½ hours along the beautiful drive of the Ring of Kerry to a place called the Island of Valencia where I boarded a small 12 passenger wooden boat that took us on the 2 hour trip to Michael Skellig. It's a small rock of an island jutting up out of the ocean with not much else around it but the smaller Skellig Island. The boat dropped us off on the island and we began the easy part of the uphill walk along the road that ...
... Slea Head, the views were astonishing but we were also surprised that the landscape was more brown than we’d seen in other parts of the country. We speculated whether this was due to the salty air, the rocky landscape, or some other factor. We also took a short detour on the southern side of the Ring of Kerry to explore a smaller loop called the Skelling Ring, which provided great views of the small rocky islands off the ...
... Someone told us to leave a Euro for excellent service- it's like leaving a dollar for a $70 meal...just seems so insulting. Ryan and I shared the seafood platter- shrimp, salmon in a chili sauce, mussels in lime and garlic juice, crab claws, monk fish, cod, and calamari rings. The cod was spectacular, and this is coming from a woman who never chooses fish. Trav had fish and chips, but the batter was too heavy and rather ...

Even though that sounds gross, it was pretty good, and most people who had tried the blood pudding b4, said it was the best so far. Next course was traditional Irish stew...if its made with lamb, it's traditional... It was incredibly tender and very tasty. ...
