Fairview was one of the hotels that was on our small spiritual group tour through Ireland. Having stayed in a castle the night before, I had no idea what to expect when we rolled into Killarney, and what a WONDERFUL SURPRISE indeed!! The Fairview had a kind, friendly gentleman greet us all and show us each to our rooms. The...

I really enjoyed my stay in The Fairview Killarney I couldn't rate it high enough. The rooms were done up to the highest standards, they are extremely comfortable. The parking was a great asset for a town center location and the food was very good. I would highly recommend this hotel and I will be returning myself very soon.

We had a party of 7. We absolutely loved the Fairview & her staff. Extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating staff. Great hotel, clean rooms, excellent location. Lobby always smelled of fresh cut flowers. Tastey pancakes at breakfast. I highly recommend this place & as a pilot, I've stayed all over the world. This place is hard to beat. Thanks Guys!...

This was a great hotel with an excellent breakfast, staff and location. A short walk to all the places you would want to be. I thought the room could be updated, but it was roomy and very clean. Parking was up the street with a walk down, so try to park right on the sidewalk (yes, really) to unload your...

Everything was amazing about this place. We were offered the penthouse and it was simply stunning. 180 degree views of Killarney on our private patio, on our own floor was amazing. The staff was beyond exceptional, and the breakfast was delicious.

We just arrived Ireland after flying into Kerry and the Fairview was our first location. We were greeted with a gracious hostess who was helpful in directions and information. Our room was small but nicely appointed. It had a double and twin, which for the most part has been norm for our trip. The location is right in town making...

We had an excellent experience with the Fairview Guesthouse. We had 2 rooms. One was a twin and full. The other we upgraded to a Junior Suite with a king size. Both rooms were very nice. Our view in the Junior Suite was right down the main street and beautiful. The staff was very helpful and booked a car and...
