Perfect pampering at Ireland’s most luxurious spa


The fabulous monastic-inspired spa at Muckross Park Hotel in County Kerry has been awarded the coveted accolade of Best Luxury Spa in Ireland at the World Luxury Spa Awards 2014.

It’s the second time that the Killarney spa destination has won the prestigious award that recognises an exceptional level of service.

The spa is part of the five-star Muckross Park Hotel and Spa, located in the heart of the rugged mountainous landscape of Killarney National Park.

It was designed to reflect the gothic architecture of Muckross – Kerry’s oldest hotel dating from 1795 – as well as the beauty of its natural surroundings and the tranquillity of the nearby 15th-century Franciscan Abbey.

Offering a full range of luxurious beauty and hair treatments, stress release and relaxation therapies, the spa is a unique sanctuary for the mind and body.

It boasts a state-of-the-art vitality pool, thermal suite and a spa garden on the banks of the Blue Pool River in the Killarney National Park, making it the ideal setting to relax and unwind.

General Manager Sean O’Driscoll said: “We are thrilled with this award which is a credit to the team at the spa. The extensive training our therapists continuously undertake ensures that they remain at the top of their profession as industry leaders.”

The opulently furnished Muckross Park Hotel has 68 deluxe bedrooms and suites, and a full conference centre.

Its award- winning Yew Tree Restaurant and Jarvey’s Rest Pub ensure that guests can also enjoy top-class cuisine as part of the pampering package.

Killarney National Park is one of Ireland’s top beauty spots. It sits at the foot of the country’s highest mountain range, the McGillycuddy’s Reeks, on the banks of Killarney’s famous lakes, and is a designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
