About The Hotel

When the 5 Star Hotel Europe opened in Killarney many years ago there was a tremenduous fuss - it actually caused a countrywide stir - it was something really different - really luxurious - really special - and it still is - only even better!
The Europe Hotel & Resort re-opened in 2008 after a multi million euro makeover and rebranding, and this spectacular 5 Star Hotel and Resort is again causing great excitement for it exceeds even the most discerning traveller’s expectations.
The accommodation is absolutely fabulous. Lakeview bedrooms, most with balconies, have panoramic views of the magnificent McGillicuddy Reeks and Lough Lein whilst Golfside rooms, of which most also have balconies, overlook the 16th Fairway of Killarney’s Mahony Point Golf Course. There are Suites, Junior Suites, as well as two Penthouse Suites which are out of this world, and the suite to beat all suites - the Presidential Suite.
The décor throughout Hotel Europe is divinely elegant and chic – magnificent drapes and fabulous furnishings. We, of course, headed straight for the hip Crystal Bar for a glass of Champagne after our drive from Dublin. That got us off to a great start and a glorious weekend. There are two principal dining options, as well as a Spa Cafe, the ultra hip elegant new Brasserie Restaurant, with terrace for al fresco dining. This is open throughout the day until late evening. The menu is very comprehensive. At lunchtime they do "Small Snacks" such as a warm seafood salad in a Parmesan basket served with mixed leaves or baked crumble of fresh horseradish and goat's cheese or a smoked salmon platter. Main courses will include casual dishes such as the old favourite Fish 'n Chips – beer battered fillets of cod with home cut chips and tartare sauce or spicy Chilli Con Carne. There are also seasonal daily specials such as roast half pheasant with red cabbage, or lamb kebabs with peppers and tomatoes, or a Fish Pie. In the evenings the Brasserie menu has lovely starters such as a tian of crabmeat and smoked salmon with cream cheese and beetroot, as well as prawns tossed in garlic butter served with leaf spinach and saffron mayonnaise. They also do a delicious broth of Atlantic fish and prawns as well as a cream of celeriac soup with truffle oil. Mains are reasonable priced and might include shank of Irish lamb braised in Merlot and served with creamy polenta with roast garlic and buttered beans. Turbot is simply sauteed and served on sauteed greens with creamed potatoes, whilst seared Tiger Prawns are served with stirfried vegetables and Basmati rice. One of The Brasserie's main features are their cracking steaks, flame cooked in front of you on an open grill - delicious fillets, succulent sirloins and eye catching rib-eyes. The Panorama Restaurant is aptly named because you have amazing views of all that Killarney is famous for. It is open for breakfast and lunch with the emphasis on fine dining highlighting Irish and International cuisine.
Typical starters include a real Prawn Cocktail with Marie Rose sauce - hard to beat it - or Kerry oak smoked salmon parcels with a crabmeat filling. You can of course have Dingle Bay Oysters or Lobster Bisque - or both! Mains include Coeur de Boeuf for two people - that is a prime fillet of beef served with a Burgundy jus and Bearnaise sauce or, also for two, Lamb Carre Provencale. If you can't agree on that there are of course a myriad of individual dishes such as Grilled Dover Sole on the bone, Escalope of Veal Viennoise, Monkfish tossed in garlic butter - and of course, in season Dingle Lobster served as you wish either simply grilled in butter, Thermidor or boiled. Leave room for scrumptious desserts - Mango Tartlette with Chantilly Cream, Lime Parfait served on a mirror of Kiwi sauce..........
Now, to put the icing on the cake, The Europe Hotel has a splendid new state of the art Spa with sixteen treatment rooms which was just launched last November. You can pamper yourself on your own or with your significant other – as they say nowadays – in the couples shower or laconium. There are ice fountains, rock sauna and crystal steam rooms, vitality pools with infinity edge, air recliners. You can luxuriate away to your heart’s delight and emerge totally de-stressed, which is what we all need in this ever faster world of today. There are two indoor tennis courts, indoor and outdoor children’s play areas, snooker, Haflinger ponies for gentle trekking around the grounds – they are subject to availability so do check – a complimentary daily shuttle service to the centre of town. You are surrounded by Golf Courses – it is Heaven.
The Europe Hotel & Resort 2010 – I am definitely in awe.
