Muckross Park Hotel & Spa
Ranked #14 of 38 Hotels in Killarney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 22, 2013

We stayed 2 nights in that hotel and it is by far the best one we visited during our stay in Ireland. The hotel and the rooms are stunning, the crew very forthcoming and friendly. The SPA is amazing and by far one of the best we ever had the chance to use around the globe. The hotel is located very close to the Killarney lakes (walking distance) and although at a main road, very peaceful. We personally preferred the landscapes in the north around Gallway, nonetheless it just a lovely and beautiful place to stay.

Thank you to Sean O'Driscoll and staff for organising a wonderful birthday party for out little son. The food served at the barbecue was delicious and the staff worked so hard throughout the day to ensure that everyone was very well looked after. We requested a specially themed birthday cake which tasted delicious and was beautifully decorated. The hotel is very luxurious and our bedroom was spacious and luxurious. Breakfast was very tasty, serving the freshest of food.

We would highly recommend Muckross Park for any special occasion as Sean pays great attention to detail and ensures that whatever is requested is actually delivered on the special day.

I would highly recommend this hotel. we encountered very helpful and pleasant staff on arrival and throughout our stay. The hotel is very comfortable and manages to balance both a luxurious and a "home away from home" feel. We were staying there while attending a wedding and the wedding was superb. The food was the best I have ever encountered at a function and, despite the fact that the kitchen was catering for 200 guests, it managed to turn out food of an extremely high standard for each guest. Our room (206) was very spacious. The location of the hotel is fantastic, with the beautiful national park on its doorstep and it is somewhat removed from the overdeveloped outskirts of Killarney. However, Killarney is a short (5-10 minute) drive away.

Room Tip: Room 206 is more spacious than the other rooms on that floor

We picked this hotel as we had a tough week and needed some relaxation in a good spa and a good meal afterwards. The meal was excellent in G.B. Shaws. The Cloisters Spa was rediculously cold and the Thermal pool was freezing. So much so that everyone was squeezed into the jacuzzi or sauna, which were the only things working in the spa. At one stage a women rushed into the sauna saying "thank God heat". Wouldnt recommend it.

Dear Past Guest
We wish to apologise that the pool was not at the correct temperature on Friday evening. The hotel closed for two weeks after Christmas, when we take the opportunity to empty all pools and do a full clean of the spa. Unfortunately, although we started refilling the pools 2 days before opening, they did not reach the optimum temperature until Saturday. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused and have put procedures in place to ensure this incident does not reoccur.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Kind regards

I wanted to get away for a weekend with my girlfriend and had the most magical time in this hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly, food excellent. Mollys pub has a lovely old Irish feel to it and there was live traditional music when we were there, which we loved. We were recommended torc waterfall and the lakes for walks which were v close and absolutely stunning. On sunday we spent the day relaxing in the spa. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

This is a lovely property. The staff was very helpful. The Bellman loaned us bikes to tour through the Killarney National Park across the street and recommended we see the boatman Johnny to take us and our bikes across the chain of lakes. Very fun trip which culminates in having tea and treats at a rustic cottage on the opposite side of the lake. The hotel has a nice pub with good pub food and Irish music, although one night the band did not show and we were a bit disappointed. Accommodations were top notch. Our only regret was that this is quite a ways out of downtown Killary so you need to cab it if you want to enjoy the local pub scene.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on tripadvisor.
Having complimentary bicycles, given our location in the heart of Killarney's National Park is very well received by our guests. Our friendly and experienced Concierge team are fantastic at tailoring guests' trips and excursions and the trip you took through the National Park on bikes, through the lakes by boat followed by lunch at Lord Brandons Cottage is one of the many trips available.
I am delighted to read you had such a lovely stay, however it is disappointing that there was no band in Molly's on that night.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future, and you will have the opportunity to experience 'Molly's Irish Nights' which will run from Mon-Friday all summer.

Kind regards
