... today. High 70’s and sunny! Who knew that we would be sweating in Ireland! Most of us brought long sleeve shirts and cardigans and are running out of t-shirts and shorts. Thank goodness the kids have been shopping at Penny’s and H & M for new clothes! :)
We checked into our hotel - “The Gleneagle” where we are the youngest people by far…..even Craig feels young! haha It must be a senior ...
... features spectacular stonework and unique stained glass windows. The remaining part of the afternoon was spent roaming the streets of Killarney, shopping and sightseeing. We returned to the hotel for a very nice dinner and then the students headed back to town for a night of dancing and fun while the faculty sat around the fire in the ...
... Since it was by now 3pm and we were a little short on time, we rented the bikes in Muckross which takes a couple of miles off the journey.. Although Lauren and I were tempted to get a scone at Dinis Cottage (they have amazing deserts and scones there), we resisted and we all shared a bottle of wine sitting at one of the picnic tables outside. On the way back Dennis' bike broke down, so Dick offered to stay behind with the bike while we went ahead. We rode to Muckross, turned in ...
... Dinner at Genting Thai came recommended on TripAdvisor and it did not disappoint. Not the best Thai, but better than more pub food!!!
On our way back to the car, we passed a place that did tours for the gap...bus ride to Kate's cottage and then a boat ride to Ross castle, and then back to the BNB. So we took the brochure in case we decided to do it that way.
Then more crosswords and ...
... that gear higher up the mountain -- or on the descent, which we had been warned could be especially treacherous under rainy conditions. So we kept moving up and up, following our signposts. The views were incredible, even with the drizzly weather -- vivid blue waters, rocky mountains, and the greenest hills beneath us. And of course, our constant companions, the sheep. Eventually, the climb began to grow steeper and we had to stop for breaks more frequently. Because of the fog, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Killarney Park Hotel
Four Seasons Plus
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.
We just spent two nights in the Killarney Park Hotel.
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!
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.
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.
