Omg I have stayed in some gorgeous hotels but this really blew them all out of the water, the view is just the best yet, I am very hard to please but have to give this hotel 10/10. We had a balcony room and it did not dissapoint! Also i loved that the food was so normal and had something to suit everyone wether u like plain normal good or fine dining they had it all. The hotel and resort inside and out is just spectacular and the staff are so friendly amd helpful. If anyone is thinking of booking just go ahead and do it. The price is worth every penny and anyone that is dissapointed with this place really would wanr to get their head checked! Will defo be returning once i win the lotto 😂 life is for living so live it and dont be worrying about money. 😂

I recently stayed at this hotel. During my stay, I had a concern that I felt wasn't handled correctly by the front desk at the time. I later brought this matter to the attention of the General Manager who handled the issue to my satisfaction. This restores my faith in the procedures in place in Hotel Europe, which as we all know is an extremely high quality hotel.

Just back from another magical stay at what must be one of Ireland’s premier hotels. It was my wife’s 40th birthday and to our joy and surprise we got upgraded to a suite. Then to top that a bottle of champagne was sent up by management. The Europe has it all, from the magnificent views of mountains and lake, to the tranquility of the spa and pool area. To be in the outdoor hot tub in the middle of February and looking at the snow capped peak it’s a joy to behold. I still haven’t found anywhere else to match it. Every one there cannot do enough for you. Would very highly recommend.

Only positive things to say about our stay. A must visit location, stunning views and exceptional food and service! The hotel staff could not do enough for us and we have been talking about our stay ever since.

Fabulous hotel with fantastic facilities. Views are lovely. Would definitely recommend getting a spa treatment as its a real treat. A great escape for the weekend with everythibg you need for a relaxing break. Can't wait to return.

This is a proper 5* hotel with fabulous facilities, excellent decor and all the comfort and cosseting you’d expect for the sort of money you’ll pay to stay there. Even my usually fussy wife couldn’t fault the place! The spa beautiful especially the outdoor areas, all the staff were very attentive and the bars and restaurants are great! The views make the place though - wow what a setting! Minor moans over the weekend - the spa can get incredibly busy with people hogging the beds. The staff down there need to manage things better and move people’s stuff after say 10mins if they’re not actually lying on the beds so other people can have a go! The gym is a bit dingy as well - no natural light so its a bit too dark - coloured mood wall doesn’t help!! Finally took us ages to get parked on returning on Saturday night - no concierge to valet so had to wait for someone to leave to get a spot! I wouldn’t want to be there in high season!!

This hotel is absolutely gorgeous - no question about it. My girlfriend and I were getting engaged the day we were staying here and when I contacted the hotel about making dinner reservations and getting flowers in the room, I never heard back. I also told the receptionist we just got engaged and they just didn't do anything - a congrats or a drink at the bar or something I would have thought. Everyone was nice enough, but not the above and beyond I would have expected from a property of this level.

I can’t stress enough how beautiful and breath taking this place is. I really cant understand how can someone can give this place a negative review. Staff was super polite and professional. The room and the views were amazing, the bed was the most comfortable thing ever! There was a tele through which you could connect to YouTube and play music you want. There was a speaker installed in the bathroom so you can listen to music while you getting ready or taking a bath! Room was very spacious with a mini bar and coffee express. In relation to the food, me and my partner are big foodies we were positively surprised of how yummy it was! I would definietly recommend it to anyone! The spa was perfect, the outdoor pool was the highlight of the stay and of course the bath salts jacuzzi! Worth every penny!

This is the best of the best. And with the best of Irishness. A world standard. From the moment you enter through the gates you feel a different atmosphere about the place. The staff and very attentive without being intrusive. Can't fault any part of my stay. The Spa is out of this world.

A brilliant experience from the breakfast to the enormous double bed and the spa is absolutely stunning. There's plenty of towels and the room is tidied twice a day. The view alone is somethimg to be seen to be believed. I'd recommend a night in the Europe to all.
