Assuming you are doing a driving tour of Ireland: you have discovered that Irish roads are as wide as a US subdivision street, or less so: you have encountered roads signs warning of oncoming traffic that is likely to be in the middle of the road as you round a curve; there are tour buses on these roads; and the posted speed limit on said roads is usually 100km/hr. At the end of the day the driver's hands are in a death grip and must be pried from the steering wheel and his or her eyes are those of a Pomeranian encountering a growling Doberman. You could stay in the city center of Killarney with 50K of your BFF's and tour buses discharging more by the minute. Or, you could 1stay 0 minutes outside of Killarney surrounded by a national park. Do your driver a favor. The peacefulness at Muckross Park Hotel plus a Guinness or two at the pub next door, Molly Darcy, will undo all that was done by the day's drive.
The rooms are moderate sized and well appointed. Free parking and wifi. The staff is helpful and friendly. Teddy, who seems to multitask as greeter, bellman, and impromptu concierge goes out of his way to meet your needs.
The food at the pub was very good. Some of the best salmon I have had. Irish music and dancers after 8 PM. Did not try the restaurant or bar in the hotel
