Located by the shores of the famous Lakes of Killarney within the heart of the Killarney National Park , the Lake Hotel is an family run establishment in one of the most beautiful settings in Ireland.
Since 1820, the Lake Hotel has occupied arguably one of the best locations in Ireland . Even before this time, the MacCarthy Mor Chieftains, chose this spot to build the castle whose 12th Century ruins are within the hotel's grounds. And when Queen Victoria of Britain visited Killarney in 1861, she was entertained here by the tranquil waters of the lake with the foreboding peaks of the Macgillycuddy Reeks towering in the distance. If you're lucky you may even see some of the wild deer roaming onto the grounds from the National Park.
The Lake Hotel combines old world charm with modern facilities. Friendly staff and hosts offer the kind of Irish hospitality that the country is famous for, while the hotel retains much of its original character. The reception area is attractively set and opens out to an elegant lounge of cosy sofas laid out in front of a blazing log fire.
The Lake Hotel offers a range of bedrooms including Woodland view rooms, superior Lakeview rooms with jacuzzi and balcony. Deluxe Lakeside rooms with jacuzzi, balcony, refridgerator, and fourposter beds or fireplace and master deluxe rooms with jacuzzi and balcony.
Overlooking the lakes, the Castlelough Restaurant has a relaxed but refined atmosphere. The extensive menu mixes traditional Irish dishes with modern continental cuisine and uses fresh local produce. Less formal dining is available in the Lakeside Bistro which is adjacent to the bar which also host regular live traditional music nights.
The Lake Hotel's leisure facilities include a fabulous Canadian style outdoor hot tub and a small fitness centre with gym, sauna and steam room
