We returned from a 2 week trip to Ireland last week. We stayed at Muckross Park for 4 nights, and because we received such great service there, we added a fifth night after our stay in Adare. The location is great being within the Killarney National Park. The hotel room was fabulous!! We booked a junior suite and both rooms we stayed in were spacious, beautiful and very comfortable. By far the greatest asset of Muckross Park is the staff. Everyone we encountered was friendly, helpful and bent over backwards to make sure our stay was going well. A special shout out to Gene and Megan of the Concierge staff, Shane at the front desk and Chris Rogan, Manager of Colgans. They are all superb at their jobs. We will recommend this resort to all of our family and friends!!!!

The most beautiful hotel in a really great location. The spa is lovely - perfect for a treatment or just relaxation. Both restaurants are really nice, the staff are friendly & really catering to dietary requirements. Monks bar is worth a visit - the cocktails are fab! We always leave knowing we'll visit again 10/10

The Muckross Park Hotel was incredible! The staff were warm, welcoming and full of great recommendations for a very fun night out (talking about you, Elaine!). The hotel room was spacious and plush. We arrived late, but the lovely spa staff let us enjoy the pools past closing time. And the price of our stay didn't break the bank. Highly recommend!

My sister and I spent a night here and it was as amazing as in previous visits. We received a very warm friendly welcome from Seamus on arrival. The food is delicious and the ambiance in Monks Lounge is lovely. Excellent service from the friendly staff everywhere. The vitality pool in the spa is luxurious as is the outdoor hot tub. Looking forward to our next trip to the beautiful Muckross Park Hotel.

Everything about the Muckross exceeded our expectations! The room was bigger than normal, the staff at the spa snuck us in for an hour in the hot tubs and sauna prior to closing and our consierge, Elaine, did a great job talking us through choices on the Ring of Kerry and found us a place for dinner that night. Five stars from us!

We had our wedding here in September 2022 for 200 guests. We planned our wedding from Vancouver, Canada and my husband is from Killarney, Ireland which is why we chose this location. It was surprisingly easy to plan from abroad, thanks to the wonderful service and prompt responses of Orla, Niall, and the team. It was truly the best day of our lives, and exceeded all of our expectations! You should absolutely book your wedding here, with an amazing team that will make sure you are well looked after! Thank you for our dream wedding day!

I would like to thank all the staff at Muckross Park Hotel and Spa- Shane, Laura, Saasil, Danielle & Elaine on reception, the Concierge staff, Olivia at reservations, Megan- the Guest Relations Manager, Alex and the staff at the Spa, the Housekeeping staff, also Bernadette and Ramone in the restaurant. The hotel, apartments and Spa are spotlessly clean and well maintained. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. Unfortunately my Mother ended up in hospital during our stay. All the staff were so kind- offering to help, extending our stay and enquiring for her welfare. They made a difficult time better for us. I can highly recommend Muckross Park Hotel and Spa. I have previously stayed there and will definitely be back for a return visit. Geraldine

We very much enjoyed our room with its comfortable bed. We had dinner the first night in the Yew Tree dining room. The lamb I ordered melted in my mouth! We each had wonderful massages and relaxed in the hot tubs of the Vitality Suite.
