We stayed four nights at The Lake Hotel for my sisters wedding. There were probably 40 of us total. Everyone at the hotel was very accommodating and helpful. The hotel is beautiful! The food and drinks were fantastic and everyone loved the breakfast! Would highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Get a lake view room

Hotel next to a tranquil lake where we spotted a wild red deer. The next day , we went for a drive around the peninsula, simply awesome. Room is comfortable and peaceful. Dining room is huge and classy although food is so so. Both our duck and sirloin are over done.

Upon arriving at this hotel I felt as though I had stepped back in time to a more glamorous era. The hotel is old and historic, but incredibly charming. The reception area is very welcoming as are all of the staff. Our room was large with a king bed and a sitting area with a couch and a large tub in the bathroom. To our surprise we had a balcony with beautiful views of the lake and a castle ruin. It was so relaxing to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and not only enjoy the view, but watch the red deer come out to the hotel grounds just after dark. The bar, bistro and restaurant all had great views of the lake and grounds. The bartenders were all friendly and attentive and the food in the bistro was delicious. We also spent one evening sitting on comfortable couches in the lounge area listening to live music. We had wonderful breakfast each morning in the restaurant.
I wish we could have stayed a month just to relax in this wonderful hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the lake. Well worth the price!

This hotel was BEAUTIFUL, and the staff so very friendly and energetic. Had a garden-view room which did not matter at all- you can see the lake from the restaurant and bistro and wander out at your leisure. Views are stunning- loved enjoying an Irish coffee at the bar and just getting lost in the scenery. Their outdoor hot tub overlooking the lake is perfection.

Reception staff were very helpful in helping to direct us for our Ring of Kerry drive the morning we left, they gave us many wonderful tips and a map that came in handy. Would definitely stay here again. So relaxing!

Room Tip: You don't need a lake view room to enjoy this beautiful hotel!

This was our second visit here and was quite as good as the first time. As the name implies, it offers great views of the lake, although you have to pay a bit more for a room with a lake view. Food in the restaurant, both dinner and breakfast was very good. Quite a treat. Not cheap but still good value.

Room Tip: If you want a room with a lake view, ask for it
