We arrived quite late in the evening after driving the Ring of Kerry, yet Annette, Paul and Jack were very kind and accommodating when we came in. We were brought up to our room and given a small tour which made us feel very welcome and at home. The house is so cozy, the room was very spacious, and the views were gorgeous. Since we arrived late and missed their dinner hours, Annette generously took initiative and called a restaurant for us to ensure we'd have a place to eat. When we arrived back to the house, their son Jack was up and made us delicious drinks in their adorable bar as we sat and chatted for a while! The next morning, we enjoyed a quaint breakfast served by Annette and Paul themselves. We had our coffee outside to enjoy the marvelous view before we headed out. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay another night! I definitely recommend Loch Lein Country House!

We were greeted with the warmest of welcomes and the guesthouse is exquisitely decorated with beautiful attention to detail. The surrounding garden and view over the lake to the mountains is so picturesque. We dined in the first night and thoroughly enjoyed a delicious meal along with the breakfasts which are made to order. Annette and Paul were perfect hosts and we appreciated Paul’s advise when planning our daily activities. They both went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Definitely one of our top stays during our driving tour around Ireland.

Our 3-day stay at Loch Lein Country House was most enjoyable - we were served tea out on the lawn on arrival (lovely!), our room was spacious and very clean with a wonderful view of the lake, and the hotel is perfectly placed to explore the Ring of Kerry, the Gap of Dunloe and other impressive sites that County Kerry has to offer. Paul and Anette were always on hand with helpful tips and made us feel extremely welcome. We highly recommend having dinner at the hotel, the food they serve is excellent (as is the made-to-order breakfast). I hope we can return some day!

Absolutely amazing. My husband and I cannot wait to visit again. The rooms were spacious and had marvelous views. The hosts were accommodating, friendly, and overall kind people. It's probably the best view of the lake in the area; our favorite part was being served tea on the lawn as we just overlooked the national park across the lake. Honestly, I could rave about our experience here all day!! Just had the best time.

It would be hard to image a boutique hotel experience better than Loch Lien Country House Hotel. The owners Annette and Paul are perfectly attentive and ensure that the guest experience is beyond reproach. The property is perfectly located with lake views from The restaurant and rooms. Our room was large with ample space to relax with magnificent views. The meals were out of this world. We thought we’d dine out while staying at Loch Lien but then quickly learned that the best food was right on property. Our stay was first rate in every single respect.

This year was our fifth visit to Loch Lein and as always we didn't want to leave. Annette and Paul are superb hosts and seem to know what you want or need before you do. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is absolutely delicious and there is plenty of choice. The views of the lake are beautiful and it is lovely to be able to sit out in the garden with a glass of wine taking in the scenery. We are already counting down to our next visit
