We stayed in Parknasilla for just 2 days and found it to be a lovely place. While having something to eat in the restaurant, a little girl (who was also staying there) played a piece on the the piano for fun. Shortly afterwards the bar man arrived to her table with a kids cocktail, free of charge, to thank her... More

We live not too far from this enchanting place so have never stayed there, but we go for a yearly visit for coffee, tea and scones in the lovely sun lounge. This time we were very hungry and also had pizza, curry and Cesar salad. It was all really delicious though Cesar was tiny (maybe three torn leaves of iceberg... More

Ticked all the boxes, plenty for the kids to do adults alike. We stayed in one of the lodges which was ok( needs a lick of paint) as it had everything to cater for a family. Nice swimming pool, great trails to walk and the views are amazing. Would definitely go back. Thank you to all the wonderful staff for... More

We booked four nights at the hotel and had a large room in the older building overlooking the sea. This is a large establishment built up around an old and grand railway hotel with modern extensions, and new holiday houses in the rhododendron woods a short distance away. It has had a chequered recent history including a period of bank... More

We stayed at this hotel recently and were quite dissapointed by the hotel. The location and old building are stunning and they did a good job with adding the Spa and the swimming pool, apartments and villas. The hotel room however was very outdated. The bathroom was very basic with terrible old tiles and a small heating for towels only... More

Been to Parknasilla as a couple in July and it was a very pleasant experience. The friendly staff, the hotel itself and the surroundings was great. The room was spacious and bright and they even added a bed for a child at no extra cost. I have never seen so many staff in a hotel and the cleaning staff cleaned... More

Spent the August Bank Holiday weekend in Parknasilla which my boyfriend had booked as a surprise for my birthday. And what a surprise it turned out to be. I had heard nothing but good reviews about Parknasilla down through the years so was expecting great things and this is possibly why I could not hide my disappointment. The drive to... More

First and foremost we have to mention Ellen the front desk associate. She was awesome, so helpful and knowledgeable. We stayed for three nights and this was a five star experience from the bar to the restaurant to the golf course. The town of Sneem was a rare find for our Ireland adventures. Highly recommend Parknasilla!

We live near the hotel so have never stayed there, though family and friends have and love it, but make a weekly visit for morning coffee and scones in the Sun Lounge. The staff are always lovely, the service excellent, and the freshly baked scones with jam and cream superb.
