We had a wonderful time at this lovely home set on the lake. We were 4 couples traveling to play golf and tour and the location was just wonderful. We enjoyed beautiful nights outside along the lake and also fun times walking the grounds. Great for families and couples.
Wonderful Lakeview House
We had a wonderful family vacation at Lakeview house with two grandparents, two parents, three children, and one young adult. From the house and the amazing waterfront behind it, you see no other buildings except a distant castle on the far shore silhouetted by mountains and Killarney National Park. It is as though the entire park is on the grounds of the house. The rooms inside are large and full of tasteful art or historical curiosities. The family and the house have an interesting history that we enjoyed learning about. The host was very kind with his time and attention. The location is close to lively Killarney and perfect for amazing drives on the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula All members of our party loved the trip. We would recommend this place to anyone.
We had the pleasure of staying for a week at this beautiful estate. The accommodations were absolutely incredible. Sir Maurice O’Connell met our group of 8 at the estate. He walked us through the home and told of his family history . In the kitchen there was coffee and breakfast and snack items along with two bottles of Champagne for our stay. The home was impeccably clean along with lovely towels and bedding. The grounds are magical. The view from the kitchen looks like a postcard, absolutely stunning. The housekeeper and groundskeeper were there every day, and when we had an issue with the lock on the door, it was immediately taken care of.
The location of the estate could not be better. Easy taxi ride into Killarney, or just as easy to drive the 10 minutes and park. There is a golf course less than a mile from the estate, and we had the opportunity to get in nine holes the day before we left.
There was a detailed binder with suggestions of day trips, restaurants, etc. We hired the chef that was suggested for two dinners because it was so delicious. I would highly recommend Nial as an outstanding chef!
I would rate our week as five stars. If I get the chance to travel that way again, I would most definitely look forward to staying here again!
Thank you for your kind review. We really appreciate the feedback and I've passed your comments on to Niall the chef. I hope we will see you again before too long.
A wonderful one of a kind house!
Our golf group arrived and were totally stunned by the house, its view, the history behind the house and its owners. Would recommend this house to anyone for golf, weddings or just getting away. You will not be disappointed and it's well worth its value! Roger Kaz
Thank you, Roger, for your great review. It was a real pleasure to hear you saying "Wow!" as you arrived and I'm glad the golfing went so well. I hope to see you all again.
One week at Lakeview House was holiday heaven. It truly lived up to expectations, and even more.
The location is magnificent, views absolutely brilliant, peace on earth. The facilities in Killarney, just 10 minutes away, were second to none, good restaurants, some shopping, and plenty of attractions in the area for all ages, families, etc. And this area of Ireland is a photographer's delight.
The house amenities provided by the owners were top notch: welcoming note and some food to get us started, booklet of how-to's, things to do in the vicinity, and everything was as it should be - even the appliances! It feels very much like home away from home and provided all the best that a vacation in Ireland should offer. Car drives in the area some of the most beautiful in Ireland, around the Ring of Kerry, Beara peninsular, Dingle etc. And knowing you were driving back at the end of the day to Lakeview House made the days very special.
Thanks for taking the time to write a lovely review Antonia. We enjoyed meeting you and your family - it's always nice to share it with people who appreciate how special Lakeview House is and we look forward to welcoming you again next year.
Outstanding House on Magnificent Lake
We had a fabulous stay in a beautiful home on the Lake. what a perfect place for an Irish Holiday. the accommodation , setting and hospitality are so welcoming. All in the heart of Kerry.
Thank you for your generous review. It is great for us to have guests who enjoy the House, the grounds and the many activities in the area as much as we do. Since last year, we've done some more landscaping incorporating a few of the suggestions you made and we look forward to showing you on your return in 2016.
Killarney and the surrounding County of Kerry is, rightly, considered to be the premier tourist area in Ireland because of its natural beauty and tourism infrastructure. Surrounding a protected National Park with stunning mountains and lakes, the area has something for everyone: world class golf courses, walking, cycling, fishing, climbing, sightseeing, local festivals and gourmet food. The magical coastline (part of the famous 'Ring of Kerry') is nearby with beautiful beaches and sea fishing easily accessible. Lakeview House and Estate is directly on the National Park and is ideally placed for enjoying all the wonders the 'Kingdom of Kerry' has to offer.
Golf: Killarney Golf & Fishing Club, the venue of the 2010 and 2011 Irish Opens, is about 5 minutes away and can be seen from the house. The club has 3 18 hole courses and the O'Mahony's Point Course is acknowledged as having one of the most stunning settings of any course - happily, it is the same view that guests in our house also enjoy.
Beaufort Golf Course is a friendly local club about 10 minutes away and the respected old established Dooks course about 20 minutes away.
Further afield, the world famous links courses of Waterville and Ballybunion are about 1hr from the house.
