At the heart of this large, well-executed 5* development lies a fine Victorian house and, although the newer areas have an elegant contemporary style, an atmosphere of timeless quality prevails throughout.
With a large conference centre, break-out meeting rooms, a mediaeval-style banqueting suite and indulgent spa facilities, it is a popular choice for business and weddings, but it also makes a convenient and luxurious base for the independent traveller. It is located within the Killarney National Park, near Muckross House and Garden, handy to all the championship golf courses in the area, and ideally situated for exploring south Kerry.
Beautifully furnished accommodation offers all that would be expected of an hotel of this calibre - ranging from romantic four-poster suites to spacious contemporary rooms, all featuring luxurious fabrics and many extras - and food and service to match.
A good breakfast here will set you up for the day, and a particularly attractive feature of the hotel is the warm ‘Irishness’ of the staff.
The adjacent Molly Darcy’s pub is in common ownership with the hotel.
Restaurants: Dining options are between the Blue Pool restaurant (named after the nearby Cloghreen Blue Pool Nature Trail), and the newer Yew Tree Restaurant, which has earned a following for fine food and service.
