The Hotel


A family-run hotel in the heart of Killarney

Nestling on the shore of the 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 colors 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.

The Lake Hotel is now run by the next generation of Huggard’s and all are involved in the daily running of the Hotel. Read more about the Huggard family history here.......
