      Historical Traveler Reviews Muckross Park Hotel & Cloisters Spa Killarney

      Wonderful setting and filled with Irish Charm


      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.



      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!


      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


      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


      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?


      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


      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


      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.



      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

      This morning Elizabeth drives Chris to work. When she gets back we head for Killarney National Park. We have reserved a one hour horse ride through the National Park. The kids are all very excited, and so are we. When we arrive we swap our shoes for rubber boots and put on a riding hat. The kids climb up onto their ponies and we onto the taller horses. Just before we are about to go Elizabeth gets a facetime call from her mom; Shaylee is finally in ...

      Actually Made it to Killarney this Time

      ... In the distance we saw a lovely rainbow. I got a few pictures of it even though the rainbow was slightly transparent. After six hours of touring the Ring of Kerry, the driver took us back to where we started. There was a bit of traffic when we left due to the horse race, which is probably equivalent to a Grizzlies game traffic in seemed like the whole city was going to watch the race.

      ... hidden down this path that had moss covered tree roots and hanging branches. We stood at the base of the waterfall for a while before climbing up a huge stone staircase that led to a view of the entire park! It was beautiful! We calculated our hike to be about sixteen kilometers and we were exhausted by the end of it! Unfortunately, my blisters came back! Hopefully they heal quickly and I can avoid them getting as bad as they were last time! After getting back to the ...

      ... They all aren't used for wool and meat. After he told us about the different kinds of sheep, he showed us how he uses dogs to herd the sheep. The dogs were the cutest things ever, because you could tell they were just so happy and loving life. When the dogs were far our, he would use a whistle to direct the dogs. Each dog had a different signal from the whistle, so they knew when to go. Then there are only four commands: forward, stop, left, and right. Every time they ...
