The Lake Hotel

Killarney, Ireland

Welcoming guests since 1820, the Lake Hotel occupies a prime location on the shores of Lough Lein, Killarney’s lower lake, with a backdrop of mountains, woodlands, and the 12th century McCarthy Mor castle ruins. Guest rooms vary in size and style but all are comfortable, and the hotel’s extensive grounds offer a peaceful place for a walk along pathways by the shore and to the castle ruin. The hotel is just a mile outside Killarney town. Classic afternoon tea is served in the Piano Lounge, and the Devils Punch Bowl is the place for a relaxing drink.
