We arrived late on a Monday evening to check-in, so a porter brought us warm towels to clean away the grime of a days travelling....nice touch, then when the porter opened our bedroom door and we said "wow", we knew that our stay at the Muckross would be enjoyable. The hotel facilities are top class. Our room and bathroom were large and comfortable, the food was of a high standard, the spa is superb, you can hire bikes for free!!!, and the staff are attentive and friendly. The location is also excellent for exploring the Killarney National Park....why did we have to leave and come home?
