The Fairview seems to be more of a hotel than a B&B. The focus is more on efficiency than it is on the relationship between innkeeper and guest that you might find in a smaller B&B.
With that said, it very centrally and conveniently located.
The rooms are comfortable, clean and well appointed. Beds are comfortable and plenty of linens are provided for your stay.
Overall, it was a very positive experience.

We are regulars at the Fairview. It is always impeccably clean and well presented with beautiful decor and very comfortable furnishings. The breakfast is always freshly cooked no self service food warners here and settles beautifully. Great value for money within easy walking distance of the station and right in the centre of the town I can highly recommend this B & B. SSSSS

Stayed here last night in. The junior sweet .never again could hear everything outside throught the windows due to broken vents and one window would not close properly right hand side one .then a vent over the bed which was making noise all night did my head in .I also heard a couple complain next door about a ice machine on all night next to there room which were not impressed .its a gorgeous place inside and out but for 110 euros would not expect this as stayed mostly everywhere in killarnery over many years .my girlfriend told in reception no appology what so ever only said he had two more suites out the back free last night ..which was good to tell us the next morning than when checked in .I'm not one to complain but this just had my head done in and my girlfriend was not one bit impressed with her relaxing nite away coming up from Waterford.SSSSS

We were placed in a triple room with one twin, and one double bed. The room was right above the kitchen, and next to a hostel. It was very difficult to sleep because of the noise, and the lack of air moving through the room. When we asked for a fan, we were told those were for the "superior" rooms. Breakfast was a good value, and Tom gave us great service in the dining room. When leaving, we saw a room with 3 beds, and on the interior of the building. It would have been much quieter, but we were never told there was another triple room, and they were not available to book online. My experience was just acceptable. My advice would be to ask for an upgraded room.SSSSS

My wife and I along with her sister and brother-in-law had a wonderful 3-night stay at your lovely guesthouse. We were there 9/9 thru 9/11, and the stay could not have been nicer. Everything was top notch thanks in large part to the friendliness and helpfulness of Les, who seemed to do everything around there. He is a real treasure and someone you definitely want to keep around. Bravo!SSSSS

Excellent - it bills itself as a "guest house', but we would rate it as a 4 star hotel. Friendly, helpful and very efficient and profssional staff; rooms well-appointed, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Nice restaurant and excellent food.SSSSS

We recently stayed at The Fairview, and found it to be a lovely hotel! The rooms were beautifully furnished, the staff was extremely helpful, and breakfast was wonderful. The location is also excellent - right around the corner from the center of town. Killarney was an excellent location from which to see the southwestern corner of Ireland.SSSSS
A friend of mine said recently that she had stayed in The Fairview in Killarney and liked her room so much she wanted to live in it! Good omen, I thought as I drove out to check out a small hotel that has been gaining a big reputation.
Local people are coming in their droves to the restaurant, and tourists are keen to stay in the centre of town in a comfortable guesthouse with all the comforts of a top hotel. So, I arrived with some expectations.
Accommodation at the Fairview - I received a very friendly welcome and was delighted with my room. Each is individually appointed, and mine had a large comfortable bed, a plasma screen television, a jacuzzi bath, separate power-shower, a comfortable sitting area with sofa and a lovely view out over the town. One of the most interesting things about this hotel is that each of the rooms is different, and therefore the price structure can accommodate all pockets. The real jewel in their crown is the penthouse, which is very luxurious with views over the Kerry mountains. Having arrived early, I just settled in to my comfortable room for the afternoon enjoying a mix of some work and some newspaper reading. It was a Sunday after all!
Location of Fairview - Another thing we liked about this hotel is that while it is the centre of Killarney – Ireland’s tourist capital – it is still quiet enough to go out and enjoy the locality. Just about everything is within walking distance. It is an ideal location while staying in Killarney. We were impressed with The Fairview, it attends to so many important details for the guest. Complementary parking, internet facilities, robes and water, iron and good toiletries; in fact this hotel provides all that you would expect in a larger establishment. Yet it maintains its friendly individual character. We also noted that they have wheelchair facilities throughout. A thoughtful hotel indeed! This is one that bigger hotels could learn a thing or two from!
Letters to the Fairview
All hotels should be like this ! fabulous............Catherine Laicu, Florida, USA.
The Fairview guesthouse is exceptional. My wife and I stayed here for two nights during our five week holiday in the UK and Ireland. This was undoubtedly the cleanest most appealing place that we stayed during our entire holiday. The place just oozes class from the moment you step through the door. We have never stayed in a guest house before as we mainly stick to the larger chain type hotels. This was a great change. The room was nothing short of luxurious, with polished wooden floors, very nice furniture and heating controlled from within your room. The breakfast was sensational – cooked to order with fresh local produce. The best breakfast we had in Ireland. The Fairview Guesthouse was in many ways the highlight of our stay in Ireland. It has a great location and is right in the town centre of Killarney, where you can have a short walk to a myriad of restaurants and pubs for dinner. Highly recommended, A+ from us............A TripAdvisor Member, Townsville, Queensland.
