Paul and Annette were amazing hosts.. They made our stay perfect and went above and beyond looking after us.. Rooms spacious and very comfortable.. Breakfsst was perfect too and there was a nice choice.. Views of the lake and mountains were amazing and being able to sit outside and relax and take it in was perfection.. Lovely and peaceful if you want to be away from the busy town during the summer months, but not too far at all to enjoy both..

This gorgeous country house hotel in Fossa near Killarney looks out on the lake and mountains. Annette and Paul the proprietors couldn’t be more helpful and friendly. The food was perfection. Hotel was spotless with wide spacing between indoor tables and garden tables spread across the lawn with that fantastic view. Lovely new walkway developed from Fossa to Killarney. Looking forward to our next stay already

We spent a wonderful few days at the end of July in Loch Lein. Annette and Paul were wonderfully accommodating and made our stay a joy. The room was absolutely stunning (so spacious), facing out onto a view like I have never seen. The food was fantastic and I looked forward to my strong freshly brewed coffee each morning. Super easy to get in and out of town, a stones throw away. I also had to do a little work while there and the wifi was excellent (a challenge I faced a few times visiting elsewhere in kerry) I couldn't recommend Loch Lein enough, will definitely be back again!!
