Simply THE best hotel I have ever stayed at. The service was out of this world fantastic - with a smile and heart felt. The room was gorgeous (ask for a newly decorated room on the lower floors - unless you prefer the Victorian feel which the older rooms have). Truly the most wonderful experience staying anywhere ever - don't miss this!!!
Nothing can compare
Having just returned from a two night stay at the Killarney Park it really has reaffirmed my opinion that it is possibly the most lovely hotel with the highest standard of service and the best trained staff anywhere in the world and I have stayed in a lot of first class hotels in various parts of the world from New York to Dubai and you just don't receive that standard unobtrusive naturally pleasant service anywhere else. I have stayed in this hotel on a number of occasions mainly because anytime I need a bit of pampering and relaxation it automatically pops into my head! A real gem of a hotel that just makes you want to keep going back.
A truly lovely hotel with an excellent staff. We went from the Killarney Park to the Adare Manor, and as lovely as the Manor is, it doesn't begin to compare to the Killarney Park.
Is this the best hotel in Ireland?
We just spent two nights in the Killarney Park Hotel.
It is without a doubt the best hotel I've ever stayed in in Ireland.
The location is excellent in the centre of town just a short walk from the local bars and shops.
The staff were friendly and bent over backwards to help us, they were always charming and interesting.
The rooms are very good , spacious, clean and well equipped.
I loved the pool and spa area. So often the pools in hotels like this are tiny nut this pool is 20 metres with well laid out jacuzzi, plunge pool and bubble pool. I particularly enjoyed the out-door hot tub in the rain!!
The restaurant is world class and the inclusive 5 course dinner excellent. They also do a great breakfast with a varied breakfast menu ( including, strangely, medallions of beef.. if you like that sort of thing!)
And at night time all the craic is to be had in the garden bar.
I loved this place!
Five star plus hotel
Just returned from Ireland. We spent three nights at the Killarney Park Hotel and just had a wonderful experience there. It is so convenient to walk to the main part of town and the maid service is just impeccable.
We were lucky enough tostay in the O'Connell suite and believe me we were treated like royalty. Other members of our party had great rooms also, and we all agreed the Killarney Park Hotel is the best in Killarney.
This hotel deserves a 10 star rating!
Miss this hotel at your peril!!
My wife and I have been travelling the world for the past 30 years and we have stayed at some of its finest and most famous hotels. But none of them can compare to the class and excellence of the amazing Killarney Park Hotel. It has taken 30 years for us to finally find the perfect hotel.
Not only is the hotel perfectly situated for walking into town, it also has some of the most wondeful, spacious and elegantly appointed rooms we have ever seen (especially the marvellous suites), great food with an award winning restaurant, fabulous public areas (wonderful library and billiard room), an outstanding swimming pool as well as a superbly equipped full service spa. As if all this wasn't enough (and in some hotels it most definitely is), what really makes the Killarney Park so very special is the wonderful team of people that Padraig and Janet have assembled to work there. Without exception, they were all courteous and charming with a permanent smile on their faces and a genuine desire to help. So very refreshing in this day and age. Along with all those personal little touches such as fresh fruit in the room every day, and your room being serviced by the time you get back from breakfast to bottles of water for every passenger in your car when you have to eventually say goodbye, everything is geared to your enjoyment of the experience that is the Killarney Park Hotel.
We really could not have chosen a better hotel to take my parents to for their 50th wedding anniversary, and would like to take this opportunity to thank every member of staff for helping to make our trip to Ireland so memorable.
And with one of their package trip rates the Killarney Park is outstanding value considering the quality and what you can pay in other hotels of supposedly the same calibre.
All in all, we cannot praise the Killarney Park enough and urge anyone considering visiting Killarney to stay at this amazing place.
MISS IT AT YOUR PERIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Loved the Killarney Park
Spent two weeks in Ireland during June 2004, and was distinctly NOT impressed with the majority of hotels. The exception was the Killarney Park, which managed to combine excellent service with genuine friendliness.
Loved Killarney Park Hotel
Just returned from two weeks in Ireland (6 couples - men golfing) and this was without a doubt our favorite hotel. The rooms were huge and comfortable. The personnel could not do enough for us. We did not eat dinner but did enjoy breakfast every morning. It is centrally located in town. They had a computer in the lobby for all to use (a big help since our sone fractured his ankle the day after we left!). I did not use the spa but several ladies did and raved about it.
This is our favorite hotel ever. We stayed there in the summer of '99.
The room was an amazing suite complete with a library. There was fresh fruit in the room to enjoy. Meals were excellent. I hope to visit again some day.
Keep going back
I have stayed at Killarney Park on two occasions, and both stays have been perfect. The rooms are very clean, beautifuly decorated, with very large bathrooms. Very good attention to detail. The service is outstanding, and a beautiul pool area as well. You'll find yourself very relaxed at the Killarney Park hotel.

Our two families had meshed extremely well (the Kramers and the Segos) and everyone was a little sad to be separating. For the Segos it is even worse as it is also their last full day in Ireland as they fly out of Dublin the next day at 12:30pm. We lounged at breakfast as long as possible before confronting the reality of packing and another 3 hour drive. On the bright side, all of our laundry had been done so we were leaving a lot ...
A great breakfast in a private dining room started our day off well. Off to Blarney Castle to kiss the Blarney Stone. Beautiful castle in beautiful grounds. We lined up and wound our way up to the top of the castle on the very small slippery stairs and with the aid of a very humorous Irishmen bent ourselves backwards to kiss the Blarney Stone. Back onto the road and guess what - we had taken the scenic route yet again. In a tiny village somewhere we found an old fellow who ...
A fun night last night on the tiles in Killarney; we started with a wee glass of porter in Connolly's with 4 locals. Every bar we have been has at least one propped up against the bar. Their advice is to start drinking at 10 in the morning and you will be home by 7 of an evening! Our goal was to find some live music so next pub, Scruffys, promised it in an hour and it did food. What unfolded next was a real comedy; we, the bar man (must have been his ...
We headed out for Ring of Kerry after a nice breakfast and hot shower. Today I got kisses from a goat (still none from any Irishman at this point). We saw lots of beautiful scenery including an amazing waterfall. We stopped at a special spot for photos gifts, and to acquire some Poutcin. Poutcin is Irish moonshine and technically illegal, but Shaun knew just where to take us to get it. The gal in the shop told us: "ah Poutcin--toothache, ...
... Z had a Bailey's and coffee and everyone liked that one. M had a Bailey's on ice and I, surprisingly enough had a Guinness. The food was both excellent and just ok. I had the lamb shank and it was one of the best meals I had on the trip. M had a seafood chowder which was very good and Z had a fish pie which was really tasty. C had a honey baked ham that lost it's lustour before she finished but wasn't too bad. At the table next to ours ...
