“Perfect 5/5”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

We stayed in Muckross Park Hotel for the June bank holiday weekend. I must say that the hotel met and surpassed all of our expectations. Firstly the location in Killarney National Park is stunning and we were spoiled for choice for activities during our stay (two days were not enough!). The welcome and the service we received was typical of Killarney, a very warm welcome but Muckross Park Hotel always went that bit extra to make our stay even more special from everybody at reception, the spa, and the restaurant. The hotel itself was nicely decorated and most importantly clean and breakfast on both days was delicious with a good selection of food (hot and cold) to choose from.

Well worth the 1000km round trip! We will most certainly be returning soon! Many thanks to everybody in the hotel for all of their help in making our stay as enjoyable as it was.

We stayed 2 nights in the muckross hotel over the June bank holiday. it was an amazing experience overall, but what really did it for us was the simple little things and the attention to detail. Shane at reception was so friendly and so helpful, as was Chris and Darren (the bell boys). They all seemed to really care and want to provide the best for your stay. Teddy was lovely too and the staff in the restaurant and in Molly Darcy's. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Breakfast was very good and what we loved the most was there was no massive crowds or rush for brekkie in the mornings. It really felt like a 5 star service. will most definitely return. The spa is a wonderful experience and if the weather permits, I would definitely recommend taking the free bikes and going for a nice long cycle around the national park. Fabulous.

Room Tip: Room 203 has fabulous private balcony.

We held our wedding in Muckross Park Hotel on May 24th and are still on cloud nine after it. From the moment we met our wedding coordinator Declan Sharkey many months before the wedding, we knew we had made the right choice. Nothing was too much trouble, and given that we live in London, Declan's knowledge and suggestions were invaluable (from flowers to food, he seems to know everything!)
Our guests raved about the beauty of Killarney, the friendliness of the people and the food at the wedding. I have to say that the chef did an outstanding job - along with our selections from their wedding dinner options, we asked for a specific veggie option of Mushroom Wellington (I'm vegetarian) and my husband requested special salted butter (just because he likes it!). Both were fantastic.
Children were very well catered for at the wedding with my sister-in-law commenting that her 3 year old son seemed to have his own personal waitress! At the top table, Joanne did a brilliant job of looking after us, and even managed to figure out how my train tied up :-)
We stayed at the hotel for almost a week in total and I'd also like to thank Akos on reception and Teddy the porter for their helpfulness.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at the end if May. Everything was great, from our welcome ( chris was nice and extremely helpful) to the food in Molly darcy's. best chicken wings ever. We had a treatment in the spa. It was calming and very relaxing. Got to mention Colette and Mary were lovely and spoilt us no end. The hotel is tranquil and very relaxing. Just what we needed. Praise to all the staff there.

Really rated this hotel and can see why it gets 5 star reviews. The location is great, the rooms and facilities ( spa,gym,free bike hire) are fantastic. The food is to die for, living in London we regularly visit Michelin star restaurants and their restaurant is up there with the best of them. The staff are all fantastic and can't do enough for you

My wife & I recently stayed in the hotel for one night during our honeymoon tour of Ireland; our only regret is that it was only one night!

The hotel is a touch of luxury & the staff are very professional & polite. Even the Porter who helped us to the room with our bags left a lasting impression taking a genuine interest in our travels & offering some history on the area & the Suite we were staying in!

The spa is fabulous & the breakfast even better!!

Really could not fault this hotel at all, truly excellent experience from start to finish. As I've said we only wish we could have stayed longer!

Highly recommended, superb value for money!

Had a lovely two night break mid week. The elements that made it lovely were the people (especially Teddy, Shane Barron & the great young man who was on front desk as part of his hotel training course....apologies for not getting his name), the relaxed ambience they created, the delicious food and the spacious, comfortable rooms. The breakfast buffet was delicious, especially the eggs benedict and the selection of sweet breakfast treats delivered to our table. There is a selection of DVDs at reception which you can borrow (great for when the weather is bad & you're just too lazy to leave the hotel !). Every effort was made to make our stay give us the feeling of relaxation we hoped for. On this trip I did not venture to the spa area, but I have recruited a few ladies to stay in the hotel later in the year to indulge in the treatments available. I look forward to my return visit.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the river has a pretty view and the four poster bed is a treat.
