The Muckross Park Hotel is perhaps the best place to stay when visiting the Lakes of Killarney. It is very close to the park entrance, so easy to bike to the sites. The hotel itself is elegant and comfortable. One of my favourites. Best of all, the pub next door has just the right amount of local flavour and kitsch appealing to tourists. Overall, a wonderful place to stay. I'd return.

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?

This was one of the best hotel experiences of my life. The spa is devine, I never wanted to leave. The staff were incredible too and could not do enough to make our stay as pleasurable as possible. My fiance proposed to me during our stay in the Muckross park. The room was beautiful with amazing views. Once my fiance told the staff of his plans they brought chocolates, even put rose petals on the bed and made sure the champagne was chilled for our return. We had breakfast and dinner on one of the nights and the food was excellent. The whole experience was wonderful and I'm looking forward to making a return visit.
