“Dad's 60'th”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Myself and my partner were blessed to have stayed in this beautiful bliss a few months ago.
We were so impressed that we and my family decided that, this was the hotel to whisk my parents away to enjoy my dad's 60'th birthday, and enjoy they did!!.
On arrival to this jewel of the "kingdom", they were treated to a complimentary upgrade to one of they're magnificent suites?, the detail of the room has been repeated by my mum to many, because of her excitement and amazement of such luxury. The kind, professional service from the beautiful staff made their stay as relaxing as we could have wished for. My dad still can't stop talking about the fantastic delicacies on offer in the fine restaurant on one of the nights and the scrumptious bar food on the 2'nd night. The tranquil bliss of the 5* spa is
un-beatable. All of they're verdicts, can honestly be backed up by my partner and Myself's stay earlier.
Another verdict we all agreed on is it was our best break away in Ireland ever.
Thank you to the manager Sean and your fantastic staff.
Can't wait to return.

Recently went to Cloisters Spa at the Muckross Park Hotel, Killarney and Wow! Myself and my best friend went for her birthday and it was our first time at this beautiful spa. The girls were just lovely from the moment we walked in especially Patricia on reception, Sabrina who was my therapist and Noreen who was my friend's therapist. There is so much to do there even before your treatment so you would want to give yourself at least an hour! There is an amazing pool, all sorts of showers, an outdoor hot tub, beautiful relaxation areas and also a decked area outside with sun loungers by the water where you could relax which was perfect to have our glass of bubbly in the beautiful sunshine. I had made the booking by email and asked to have bubbly organised which was done and we weren't even charged for it which was a lovely touch. We had a lemongrass & lavendar exfoliation followed by a full body massage and it was divine! Sabrina was excellent and just so lovely to deal with. In fact I would ask for her personally on my next visit to the spa which is a definite. The range of treatments is fantastic as well and when I do return I won't know which one to choose! I would highly recommend this spa and I'd say as an extra special treat a stay in the hotel itself would pretty much top off the whole experience!

We stayed for 2 nights and loved every moment we spent there. The spa is gorgeous--and recommend you get a treatment, which results in free access. The grounds are beautiful and the decorations are novel, with much modern art, paintings and sculpture in a traditionally furnished setting. The staff was marvelous, and went the extra mile for us every time we had a request. It is a bit difficult to find from downtown Killarney, but the setting beside the National Park is tremendous, and you can get bicycles to ride around the park from the hotel staff. The rooms are well appointed, with a drape and a crown above the headboard of the bed! There is a pub next door, and a wonderful bar with big, comfy leather sofas to sit and talk or have a nightcap.

Stayed for 2 nights for a wedding. Wonderful stay, Gorgeous food at wedding and barbecue the day after. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, especially when I needed a doctor on the staurday morning. Missed breakfast but they made sure i had something on my return. The hotel and grounds are gorgeous. A few of my family stayed in an apartment which was furnished as good as the bedrooms. Lovely spa for 10 euros you can visit as many times as you like over your stay. Great value for money. Only one criticism was that empty glass were not collected from our tables on the saturday when we had a barbecue ., which led to a couple of breakages whilst in the outside area when the lights went out. Other than that would definitely recommend.

My husband and I stayed here over the weekend and when we arrived we thought it was more a 4 star hotel until we met the staff and the spa and realised it totally deserves its 5 stars. The staff couldn't do enough for us,super efficient and extremely friendly . There was 2 weddings in the hotel and we never heard a sound so we had a great sleep. Breakfast was beautiful and we had dinner which was beautiful . we would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to return shortly, many thanks

My wife and I stayed just one night in May and were very impressed with the Muckross Park Hotel. The staff was super-friendly, attentive, and very helpful and service-oriented. The hotel is very elegantly decorated and furnished. Our room was very large, looked out over the Muckross Rd. where we could watch horse carts pass by. Breakfast was first-class. And, you can step right next door to Molly Darcy's, an excellent and spacious Irish pub. There are also a bar and restaurant in the hotel. The hotel is just minutes by car from both downtown Killarney and Muckross Park, but you feel like you're out in the country.

If you're looking for a very relaxing stay that has a lot to offer including beautiful lobby, large rooms with modern bathrooms, spa, restaurant, bar, Irish pub and a great staff, check out the Muckross Park Hotel.
