Lakeview House & Estate is a luxurious private mansion directly on the world famous Lakes of Killarney.
Steeped in history and character, this elegant home is an ideal holiday destination. Whether you choose to enjoy all the House and Estate has to offer or to explore the region's scenery, golf, fishing and other activities, you will be spoilt for choice.
The House boasts wonderfully spacious living areas, all with high ceilings and impressive plasterwork: a Dining Room seating up to 18, a Drawing Room with an open fire and a very atmospheric Library with a wood burning stove. A very comfortable kitchen/breakfast room has steps out to the garden and there is a studio/playroom which works as a less formal sitting area.
There are 4 principal bedrooms and 2 additional bedrooms allowing for a maximum of 10 guests. (The house is large and could sleep many more than this but we limit occupancy to 10 so that every guest has space to lose themselves as well as different spaces to be all together). All the bedrooms have really comfortable beds to ensure you relax completely.

Being on the Killarney National Park, the stunning views have been protected from development: from the house you can see across the lake and mountains for miles with no sign of human habitation other than Ross Castle, a restored ruin beautifully lit for your benefit at night.
The estate covers over 100 acres with many private walks. Boat trips and fishing can be arranged from your doorstep and the surrounding area has fabulous walking, climbing, cycling, horse riding, golf, fishing and entertainment facilities.
The house was built in 1869 for the family of the present owners, kinsmen of Daniel O'Connell ('the Liberator'). It replaced an earlier house they had occupied since 1820, prior to which the land was owned by the MacCarthy family, the last of which line is the owner's mother. Other than 30 years, the family's occupation of the site goes back about 1000 years.
