The location to tour the National Park and area is no better than this lovely hotel. The spa looked great, but we did not have time to indulge in it. My husband and I went on the free bike ride of the park across the street. Jason was our tour guide and we did the bike path and had a... More

Stayed just for the one night and was impressed from the minute we walked through the door! Beautiful place but a wonderful warm reception from Shane. Nothing was too much trouble from anyone during our whole stay. Spa was excellent and the "Yew Tree" restaurant was superb! The food was everything you could hope for and the attentiveness of the...

Amazing room along with a bottle of wine as I'd mentioned it was my husbands birthday. Spa was fantastic. All of the staff are so welcoming. Bar food is excellent - I love the fish & chips. We also ate in the restaurant and it was outstanding.

While visiting from Canada in May, we stayed at the Muckross for 3 nights, touring the ring of Kerry with my family from Dublin. We booked 3 rooms, 2 doubles and a triple for the kids (young adults). Ted, the concierge went out of his way to assist us with places to see, directions and access to the hotel amenities.... More

One of the best accommodation stays, of our trip. Wished it could have been longer. The breakfast was with everything you could think of. We will always try to stay here when travel back to Ireland. Thank you to all the very pleasant staff.

Spent 4 nights with my wife and her sister who was on holiday from Canada. This was my 5th time staying in this hotel and each time gets better.

The hotel is in a good location if you hope to explore some of the ring of Kerry, National Park and Muckross house. However, it was below my idea of what 5-star should be. It's a nice hotel, but has a dated feel.....this ties in with its history of course, but personally I prefer more modern decor and amenities and... More

Dear Guest Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us. I was sorry to hear that the decor of the hotel was not to your liking. There are sections of the hotel dating back as far as the late 1700s, pre-dating the nearby Muckross House which was built by the... More

This is a really fine hotel, worthy of its 5* rating. The experience was very good from start to finish and I was really pleased with the stay. Staff were helpful and the on-site pub made for a really chilled night in after busy days exploring. The food was outstanding, breakfast was the best I have tasted, with towering fresh... More

We held our wedding reception at this hotel. Even before we booked the wedding, we found the staff at Muckross to be exceptionally friendly and attentive. The process of planning our wedding was, dare I say, easy. Our wedding planner Declan Sharkey was absolutely brilliant! He really understood my vision for the wedding and translated it into reality. This was... More
