About this Hotel

Nestling on the lake of Lough Lein, Killarney’s lower lake, The Lake Hotel enjoys the most magnificent setting with the truly unique backdrop of the mountains, islands, woodlands and the 12th century McCarthy Mór castle ruins.
The Lake Hotel is a four star property run by the Huggard Family & has been welcoming guests since 1820, so a long tradition of warm Irish hospitality awaits all visitors.
Awaken for breakfast in the elegant dining room, The Castlelough Restaurant. Observe the wild deer stroll across the lawn, unwind over morning coffee in the Lakeside Bistro and absorb the peace and tranquillity imposed by the presence of the lakes.
Wander down the pathways to the ancient castle ruins and be surrounded by the freshest of air and a landscape that is untouched but admired by visitors over the centuries. 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.

At The Lake Hotel, there is a variety of accommodation options from which to choose, many guests opt for the lake view rooms given the magnificence of the landscape which is laid out in front of them whilst others prefer the more low-key beauty of the woodland areas to the front of the hotel, where the deer roam freely. With either choice, the comfort of your surroundings combined with the majestic scenery ensures a relaxing break away from the routine of daily life.

When booking your accommodation at The Lake Hotel, they offer a range of extra amenities for you to consider to enhance your stay.
If you are travelling with small children, they are happy to provide cots on a complimentary basis and many of the rooms have a queen bed and a single bed therefore allowing the family to stay together.

At The Lake Hotel, despite having unparalleled jogging and exercise space just beyond the doors and the 25,000 National Park adjacent to their property, they offer a fully equipped fitness centre and gym. Located on the ground floor and looking out across the lawn, past the hot tub to the lakes and mountains, this view will take your mind off the exercises ahead.
The treatment room at The Lake Hotel provides yet another opportunity to relax and unwind whilst staying with us. This room is located beside the Muckross Fitness Centre on the ground floor of the hotel and therefore enjoys the peace and tranquillity of being on the lake shore. A range of relaxing, revitalising and therapeutic face and body treatments are available from the experienced and friendly therapists.
