At The Lake Hotel they pride themselves on offering a truly Irish welcome, a tradition that has been fine-tuned over many years by the hotel owners, the Huggard family. As a family owned and family run hotel, ensuring all guests are comfortable and happy is their business.
Since 1820 guests have been coming to stay in the hotel to enjoy its unique vista and although additions have been made over the years, a guest relaxing in the piano lounge today could be sitting in the very same spot as Queen Victoria when she visited the region and the hotel in 1861.
Awaken with breakfast in the elegant dining room, the Castlelough Restaurant, and observe the wild deer stroll across the lawn, unwind over morning coffee in the Sun Lounge and absorb the peace and tranquility imposed by the presence of the lakes. Wander down the pathway to the ancient castle ruins and be surrounded by the freshest of air and a landscape that is untouched by centuries of visitors and admirers. As the light fades and colours change, enjoy an aperitif in the Devil’s Punch Bowl Bar before tasting the finest of Irish food and reflecting on the abundance of natural beauty in this part of the world.
There is something for everyone staying at The Lake Hotel, with Killarney town on the doorstep, just 2km away, the Killarney National Park adjacent to the property, several championship golf courses within a 5 mile radius and wild deer and eagles residing on the grounds. Equally this is the ideal setting for an essential escape from daily life with nothing to distract you from the panoramas outside the hotel windows.
