    Historical Traveler Reviews Muckross Park Hotel & Cloisters Spa Killarney

    Wonderful setting and filled with Irish Charm

    from

    My wife and I recently stayed at the Muckross Park for3 nights as we used the location as our base to explore the region and drive the Ring of Kerry. The hotel was well mangaged, the morning breakfast was cooked to order. The bar which won an award was not up to par, rather stark and without a personality, the pub grub was not the best. The hotels location is a plus with the ability to cross the road and visit the abbey, walk the trails to the lakes and the famous Muckross Home and venture out to the national park. The town of Killarney is full of Irish charm, friendly people and hundreds of eating establishments. When returning to the area we will go back to the Muckross.

    Outstanding!

    Better than a lot of 5-star hotels I've stayed at! I felt like a king! Beautiful place and the location was perfect - close to town but at the same time you felt you were in your own exclusive grand estate away from it all! The hotel actually has it's own mini-village on teh grounds with 2 FANTASTIC restaurants and the INCREDIBLE Molly Darcy's pub which felt more like a real Irish pub than most of the tourist traps in Killarney town!!! People were great too - even the owners of the hotel were around and very friendly!

    Outstanding hotel!

    from

    I can't wait to go back to Muckross park hotel! we had a lovley big room overlooking the gardens. Very nice helpfull staff. It was everything you would expect from as 4 star hotel. I can't speak highly enough about the hotel. I hope to visit again next year.

    Loved it

    from

    Stayed here for a night in June, the only downfall would have been that there is no lift and it was a heavy haul up to the second floor. Putting that aside, the room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The staff were very friendly and and attached pub, Molly Darcy's was fantastic with it's traditional irish music and dancer and the food was good too. There was a good breakfast and the grounds and location - right near the Lakes of Killarney were excellent.

    Muckross Park Hotel was ideal

    from

    10 of us spent 2 nights during our 10 day visit to Ireland. Well located, just a short cab ride outside of town. Large, comfortable rooms. Lobby great for relaxing. Front desk staff was most helpful in recommending entertainment ideas in Killarney. Very convenient having a pub attached to the hotel (Molly Darcy's). Excellent restaurant.

    Breakfast overlooking the gardens was a real treat.

    Perhaps my Expectations are too High?

    from

    It was not all bad...great location across from the park...nice Staff...far from the maddening crowd of Killarney. The public areas were nice, but the guest rooms should have been cleaner considering it has a 4 star rating. The breakfast was not particularly good. The tea was terrible. Perhaps it was the dead bugs in the window sills that tainted our morning meal. The pub was great and we really enjoyed the traditional music. Take a pass on the restuarant. It is expensive and the food is not good.

    Great for Relaxing

    from

    I had a great time - found the food and staff excellent. A great pleace to relax & being on the ring of Kerry everywhere is close by....Even stayed a extra night ...

    Cant wait to go back to Muckross Drive House

    from

    Stayed in Muckross Drive House, in Killarney for a weekend. Its a great family owned and run Bed and Breakfast and it's only a 5min walk from Killarney town center and the Bus and Rail stations. Breakfast was excellent and the service was wonderful and efficient. Tours can be arranged for you at no extra charge. I would thoroughly recomend Muckross Drive House (...) and I will definitely return.

    Ab-Fab

    from

    We stayed in this hotel the last two nights of a 12-day motorcoach tour of Ireland and Northern Ireland, so we had a few things to compare it to. The setting is gorgeous, the rooms VERY nice, service good, and the food wonderful (our group ate in the hotel dining room as well as Marcy D'arcy's. We didn't have a car, but with some free time on our hands, we were able to explore the grounds, which include a 15th century Franciscan abbey, and a jaunting wagon stand. We didn't get to see the Muckross House, but what we did see would make me go back again, if not to explore some more.

    Excellance in every sense

    Faultless.

    ... miles per day. Today we drove 185. I was/am tired.

    Our record is holding pretty well. However it was almost stained today as we hit patches of mist and fog early but it cleared off by 11:00AM then in late afternoon we hit a patch of drizzle. So, we are 12/4/4. Twelve days of good weather, 4 days of driving in Ireland and 4 days without an accident. Tomorrow could be different as we mix and mingle with the tour buses for the first time.

    Time to move on. We have decided to complete the Ring of Kerry today and camp for the night in Killarney. We set off at about 9.30am, passing through Catherdaniel, waved to the Blind Piper and continued on towards Cahirsiveen, the largest town on the Iveragh Peninsula. We travelled along the Coomakista Pass, which afforded magnificent views of Ballinskelligs Bay and provided us with quite a few viewing places without height barriers! We passed through Waterville en route, ...

Between my bad knee and my fear of heights I thought this sounded like a good solution. After we left there we headed for an old castle that I have forgotten the name of already. ...

    ... principally from a donation of Muckross Estate, which was presented to the State in 1932 by Senator Arthur Vincentand his parents-in-law Mr. and Mrs. William Bowers Bourn, in memory of Senator Vincent's late wife, Maud. The park was substantially expanded by acquisition of land from the former Earl of Kenmare's estate.

    After seeing the house, having a snack and doing a little shopping in the gift store, we hired a jaunting car ...
