This hotel is simply outstanding. I have not stayed in a hotel like this in Ireland before. From the view to the luxury of the hotel itself. . It's just spectacular. We will definitely return, despite it being a 4 hour drive from home!

From the moment we arrived to the time we departed after 4 nights at The Europe Hotel, every aspect of our stay was fantastic! The setting on the banks of Lake Leane with the mountains in Killarney National Park as a backdrop made for a spectacular setting. Our lake-view rooms were lovely and the view phenomenal! The Brasserie's terrace was... More

Love this hotel, stayed twice now and its an exceptional stay. Rooms with a lakeside view are exceptional. Amazing rooms, great views, lovely setting by lakes and friendly and very helpful staff. The pool and spa are relaxing and the free horse riding a great addition. Breakfasts were fabulous, great drink choices, just food at the restaurant wasn't as exceptional... More
