We had a mini girls break at the apartments and made use of their wonderful spa pool area (we had been here on day appointments before so knew how amazing it was). We bagged a bargain rate in the autumn sale and stayed two nights. Had evening meal in Monks Lounge which was delicious and had breakfast on one morning in the restaurant, again lovely food and as much as you wanted. The apartment was great, comfortable and very spacious. Lots of luxury touches like the nespresso machine and some Rituals toiletries. Was a real treat to get away and the staff there are so helpful and friendly. Couldn't recommend enough.

Just back from a fantastic stay in Muckross Park Hotel. From the moment we arrived it was pure luxury! We were greeted by Lisa at reception who was the front office manager and was so friendly and welcoming and went above and beyond to make our stay so enjoyable and relaxing. The room was stunning and had everything you need. We had dinner in the monks bar and the food was fabulous and there was a lovely cosy relaxing atmosphere there!! Breakfast in the morning was first class! The infinity pool area is exceptional and a must do! The signature massage in the spa was pure bliss! The service and staff in the hotel is exceptional! They are so friendly and helpful and really make the stay so relaxing. They made the wknd so enjoyable. They are a credit to the hotel. Thanks again to Lisa and all the staff for the best weekend. Highly recommend a visit!! We are already planning a trip back there! Linda

My partner and I stayed Muckross Spa Hotel at the end of our five day long honeymoon in Kerry. Prior to our visit, staff were extremely good at communicating with us by phone to ensure all reservations were in place accordingly eg dinner, breakfast, afternoon tea and also the spa. Upon arrival we were met by a very friendly porter who didn't hesitate to take our bags from our car straight to our room. The reception staff were also very friendly and welcoming and it was a very swift and efficient check in process. We were taken to our room by our porter who showed around, and made sure we were happy and comfortable. We used the spa the first evening - it has good facilities- a small pool (ideal for relaxing but not big enough if you would like a good swim!) sauna, steam room, two Jacuzzis and an outdoor hot tub. There was plenty of bottled water available too :) We dined in the restaurant on our first evening. Service from staff was excellent - we were shown to our table efficiently, and orders were taken efficiently too. The food was superb. The room was very comfortable with good quality bathroom fittings (bath and separate shower) and large wardrobe space. The thing that really stood out for us during our visit was the staff - each and every staff member went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed which made our stay so so enjoyable :) thank you Muckross Hotel staff! :)
