“One of the best hotels we stayed at in Ireland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

We loved every minute of our stay. From the minute we walked into the hotel the staff (especially Akos and Teddy) made us feel so welcome. They helped us book tours, gave us great touring advice and made us feel very special the entire time we were there. We even stayed at a more "exclusive" and costly hotel after staying at the Muckross and my husband and I both agreed that the quality of service and the hotel did not compare. The grounds are beautiful and you will be directly across from the Killarney park.

I spent 3 nights at the Muckross Park Hotel with my 16 year old daughter in a superior twin room. Absolutely everything about our stay was positive. When we arrived, check-in was very quick and efficient and the staff were very welcoming. We were shown to our room, which was very big, tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and had everything you could need in a hotel room. In addition, a complementary bottle of wine and box of chocolates were there for us, a very nice touch! Although an evening meal in the Yew Tree restaurant was included in our three night package, my daughter and I preferred to eat in Molly Darcy's bar (the menu was more to the taste of a teenager!). The cost of our meal in the Yew Tree (€90) was credited to our room and covered both the meal in the bar and room service on another evening. The food was excellent on both occasions! One of the highlights of our stay was an afternoon in the spa, which was truly wonderful! It was my daughters first experience of a spa and she thought she was in heaven. The two therapists who gave us our facials were really excellent and did everything to make us feel relaxed and pampered. The only minor hiccup was that when we came out after our facials to have the sorbet (which was gorgeous) there was only one relaxation bed free, as they can be used by anyone using the pool area. It might be an idea to have a separate relaxation area reserved for guests having treatments. Having to share the bed meant we could only sit and not lie back. Like I said though, this was a minor point which didn't impact on our enjoyment of the day. Overall, the atmosphere in the hotel was very relaxed, the staff the most welcoming and helpful I have ever experienced in any hotel, and the food and service excellent. My daughter and I had a wonderful few days in Killarney. One last note, please try the French toast at breakfast, it's delicious!

Room Tip: The upgrade to a superior room was worth it for all the little extra touches.

Stayed two nights in the Muckross Park Hotel last week. One of the best I have ever stayed in. The staff can't do enough for you.
The spa is really lovely. I had a treatment and it was excellent. We didn''t eat in the restaurant, but we had food in the pub attached, Molly Darcys, and it was fine. The breakfast is very nice. Lots of choices and really relaxed. Definitely the place to go if you want a real treat!

The experience we had at Muckross Park was overwhelmingly positive.

From the check in welcome, the high standard of the room, the quality of the food and above all the exceptional service and anticipation of requests from the highly trained staff, this hotel ticked all the boxes.

I travelled to participate in a cycling event. Not only did they provide a space for keeping my Bike, they also organised breakfast at 5.30m for those going early. This was great!

The Spa is very nice but dont expect a big pool. There is a lovely outdoor hot tub and you need to experience it during a nice soft Irish rain shower :)

Wifi coverage was good and the only issue is that, due to location in the mountains, mobile phone signal is very poor and is non-existent in some areas of the hotel.

Would love to go back again...well done to all in Muckross Park Hotel for making our stay so exceptional

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be of a very good standard

This has to be one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The staff are excellent, curtious and very well trained. The spa has to be one of the best in the country.
The restaurant is a severe disappointment, dont eat there its very bad. Eat in the bar instead.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were well taken care of. The young concierge gave us hot towels on arrival to refresh us, bags brought to room, receptionist explained anything we asked about, we were invited on a walking tour, had excellent food in the dining room and the restaurant manager was lovely to talk to along with the waiting staff. The pianist was well noted on nice music and the spa was lovely. We will return .

Room Tip: Had a beautiful four poster bed , ask for the deluxe room
