The Lake Hotel is Family Run
Offering Traditional Irish Hospitality for 100 Years
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 Sun Lounge 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.
Hilda Huggard, Proprietor 1940 - 2001
The Lake Hotel is now run by the next Generation of Huggard's and are all involved in the daily running of the Hotel.
