We really enjoyed our stay at Parknasills resort. Our lodge was excellent, the service was very good, all staff are excellent, and we enjoyed our meals. Parking was often difficult, especially at the lodge, and often we could not park there. The location is beautiful.

This hotel is an absolute dream , the friendliness of the staff , the food, the amazing walks and scenery. We felt welcome and taken care of from the moment we arrived. Cannot rate this hotel highly enough. It is the team at Parknasilla which make it so special because they make each guest feel special.

We had a great stay! We stayed at the lodges and they were very spacey and comfortable. The spa facilities are great, especially the "quiet" hours between 6pm and 8pm without children, this is a great addition! Also the multimedia system works great. The only thing that we "missed" would be the option to buy some fresh bread in the morning for breakfast at the lodges.

Quite simply the best hotel/ location I've ever stayed. Our trip was a bit extra special because we had got engaged that day, so our stay was made extra special with procecco and chocolates on arrival to the room. What a room! Beautiful view of the sea. Staff are brilliant, couldn't say thanks enough. Restaurant is beautiful, if in the conservatory section you will again have a lovely view of the sea. Food is fantastic as well. The walks although we didn't do a lot of them are great as well. We had less than 24 hours as we needed to get a flight but when I return ( which I certainly intend on) I'll certainly be staying around for at least a few days!

Extraordinary hotel at a location with stunning views. As a frequent traveller all around the world I may say the Parknasilla is in line with only a few hotels I visited where almost everything fits together perfectly.

We had a wonderful four night stay in Parknasilla with our two children aged 2 and 4. The family room was ideal as it had a small bedroom off our room for the children. The kid club also suited our 4 year so much that she didn't want to leave on she discovered it, the time slots were only 45 mins, which wasn't ideal as too short to avail of time in the spa etc. however as far as I am aware the hotel are reviewing this. We also enjoyed the numerous walks on the grounds, in particular the fairy trail and treasure walk the kids loved the adventure of it all. The food was beautiful, a wonderful selection at breakfast. We had lunch and dinner in hotel lounge bar which we found very good and most importantly very child friendly. Finally the rocking horse was the biggest hit of all a great addition to the hotel. We are looking forward to returning next year for our third time

We spent a week touring the south of Ireland a stayed in some beautiful hotels. However, the Parknasilla was the best of the lot! We decided to pay for an upgrade to a suite and it was definitely with the extra cost. The room was great and the view from our balcony stunning. The staff were helpful and we had a lovely breakfast. We made use of the excellent pool and I just wish we had stayed for more than one night! We had a meal in the bar which was okay, but nothing special and is the only reason I haven't given 5/5.

My husband and I really liked it - great location, staff brilliant, other guest friendly, food amazing. The only thing that could be improved was the massage which was expensive and just about passable. c

My wife and I just experienced Ireland for our first time and celebrated our 30th anniversary at Parknasilla. It was a wonderful trip and the amenities and views from the property quite amazing. The spa was excellent as was all the service staff throughout the resort. The Pygmalion restaurant was outstanding and fit for foodies. The walking trails to the islands and throughout the property are very well maintained and provide hours of nature trails and great scenery of the bay and waterways. Highly recommend for special occasions or family holidays.

We stayed here for the last few days of our honeymoon and were totally blown away by both the resort and the staff. Upon arrival we received a complementary upgrade of suite, lovely bottle of bubbly in the room and a drink on the manager himself. The staff here really go the extra mile to make your stay a memorable one and we already are hoping to return with other family members before the end of the year. Thanks a million for making our time so special.

Had a wonderful relaxed stay in beautiful surroundings, very comfortable room, lovely friendly and helpful staff, fantastic breakfast, compliments to the chef on all the food, dinner was a delight. The scenery is breathtaking and there are at least 10 walks to suit all fitness abilities. I Would recommend this hotel unreservedly.

Fantastic location. Beautiful park and walks, but more flowers would be great. Beautiful indoor swimming pool. Pleasant appartement in lodges. Excellent service with a friendly and efficient staff. Casual atmosphere which is very much appreciated on holidays. The only desapointed point would be the food, with a limited choise of meat and strange mixtures... Vegetarian dishes and less potatoes would be perfect !

I went to Parknasilla Resort and Spa with my husband and our 7 month old baby. We loved everything about it! It's baby friendly. Our room was so spacious and comfortable. The staff are extremely nice and efficient. The food in the Lounge was delicious. The breakfast had a great selection of food. The surroundings of the hotel are stunning with breathtaking views. So peaceful and quiet. It is very well maintained and it has a lot of character. I highly recommend this hotel for a special getaway. It was my best experience in a resort in Ireland by far.

We stayed for 2 nights over the Easter Holidays and while the hotel was extremely busy we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Parknasilla! Staff were always friendly and courteous. Food excellent also and reasonably priced for a 4 star hotel ! Lots to see and do with scenic walks and lots of extra amenities so much so that you need never leave the hotel grounds-will be back again !!

Outstanding resort. Every effort made to make if child and family friendly over Easter Break. Yet still looked like a resort for us to come back to as couple. Excellent spectrum of activities. Fully booked yet comfortable in pool, sports, common areas.

My first Parknasilla experience and not my last, very enjoyable, we did a two night deal including dinner on one night, food was fabulous and very plentiful, we ate there both nights, taking bar food the evening before in the bar, which was very tasty, perfect for weary travellers just arriving... very lively spot, lots of families and kids but not in an intrusive way. spa was lovely and very comfortable, they do fitness classes too, which I only saw last minute, I would actual lay recommend promoting these a little more, coz, I would have definitely signed up, if I saw them sooner..

This was our third visit to this absolute haven and it won't be our last! Everything was perfect. 1 minor quibble - the bar menu seems quite long and our main meals (chicken curry and oriental chicken) were quite bland in comparison to our amazing desserts. Perhaps a smaller menu would lend itself to dishes that pack a bit more punch.

We had a fantastic stay, the villas were warm and spotlessly clean and comfortable. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful. My kids loved the exotic animal show and the owls. I would have no hesitation recommending the hotel to my friends and family and can't wait to make a return visit.

November is a month of Autumnal colours and where better to be then in the magnificence of the Parknasilla Hotel and it's spectacular grounds. We have just returned from another successful weekend and after our five years we are never disappointed by the staff and facilities. Roll on next November!
