We just returned from a mid week stay in Parknasilla Resort and Spa. It lives up to its reputation. It is located in a beautiful area in Kerry and once you drive through the gates, you immediately feel as though you're entering a different world! The staff were welcoming, courteous, friendly and extremely helpful. The food was so good that we didn't want to eat anywhere else. The spa is fabulous, especially the outdoor hot tub - its such a treat!
I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is interested in getting away from the world for a few days to indulge in some R&R.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the original hotel - lots of charactor

It has been a few years since we previously stayed at Parknasilla. This time as we were bringing our teenage daughters as a special Easter treat, we stayed in one of the self-catering lodges.
The lodges surpassed our expectation - they were bright, clean and very comfortable with all necessary equipment to make for a very relaxing stay.
As it was the busy Easter period, the swimming pool was always busy, but the thermal spa was an oasis of calmness. With a choice of different saunas and steam rooms as well as the warm beds in front of the large windows, it was heavenly.
As we were self-catering, we did not use the restaurant, but have very fond memories of it from times past. This time we did try the bar menu one evening, and all of us were very satisfied with what was served - plenty for everyone, and not exorbitant prices.
The walking trails were excellant for the morning jogs - between the showers!
We will be returning.

My wife and I booked this hotel on a friends recommendation. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is set overlooking Kenmare bay, with fantastic views. There are miles of trails around the hotel grounds, with maps given to us on check-in. Breakfast was standard but dinner was very nice, with plenty of options, especially for fish lovers.

The spa is a must,and the food in the resturant was a wonderful dining experience.There are fantastic walks around the grounds .The Parknasilla signiture cocktail is a must .

I went to Parknasilla with My parents, husband and our 17 month old daughter.we all had a great time. My.father and husband went golfing while the girls went for a lovely walk after having our coffee overlooking the bay. There is a really safe green area secured with glass panels so My little woman could run around quite safe.
My mother and I went to the spa for treatments.we go to alas often and this experience was really relaxing and the service,delivery of the treatment was superb.they also had offers on which is always good!!
We had our evening meals in the restaurant, I had john dorey for main course one evening and it is still in My mind it was so fresh and tasty.our little one became agitated at meal times as she is a very busy little person and My husband and I took turns eating but staff we there straight away taking our meals away to keep them warm,offered to give us fresh dinners even one evening and they delivered our desserts to our room on one occasion!! There is supervised play and activities for age three and over so we did not have that available to us but we did go to the pool where there were lots of floating balls and other items to play with. The highlight for me was sitting in the hot tub outside watching for seals that live in the bay and taking in the views.
The staff were very friendly and accomodating and the whole experience wad worth every cent. Kenmare town,killarney and Molls gap are only minutes away in a car.
I would probably stay in the woodland retreat houses if I were to go again only because of the baby ad we were a bit confined to the room at night time.
