The very best thing by far about travelling in Ireland is the warmth and welcome you'll get from the Irish people.
With genuine curiosity we'll ask you where you're from, where you're going, who are your 'people'; where are they from.......it's something built into our genes; we'll find those 6 degrees of separation regardless of how long it takes and in the meantime we'll have a few drinks just to make it sociable!
At The Heights we pride ourselves on having some of the friendliest staff in town, but don't take our word for it, some of our guests left these messages on Tripadvisor;
"Everything was perfect and exactly what we needed. It has a real homely feel to it. The staff are excellent and very friendly."
"The staff were super nice, very friendly and always with a big smile."
"....the barmen Derek and Ivor were a great laugh, we would definitely stay again."
Our bar and award winning carvery are open every day from midday and we also do a mean brasserie menu if you're looking for an informal dinner option. The staff will ensure you're looked after and if you need any advise with onward travel plans that's what we're here for.
And in Killarney there's plenty of places for solo travellers to enjoy the local craic, just ask us and we'll give you some local tips.
We also have some of the best festivals and events outside of Dublin like Puck Fair in nearby Killorglin, it's one of the oldest fairs in Ireland, no one knows quite how old but there's references dating back to the 1700's.
Other major events are the Gathering in March; a traditional music festival held over 4 days. Ring of Kerry cycle race in July each year which is a 175km race involving thousands of participants. BikeFest in June, Rally of the Lakes in August, Christmas in Killarney and many more.
If it's solitude and reflection you're after there are 10,000km of national park on our doorstep and hiring a bicycle and taking a trip around the lakes can take up an hour or all day depending on how fit and reflective you really feel!
Ireland is one of the safest and friendliest places to travel if you're on your own and The Heights Hotel the perfect base. We'll make sure you get that warm welcome and are happy to help with any ongoing travel plans you might have.
And to top it all off The Heights won't charge you a single supplement for travelling alone.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
