Book Your Holiday

Families love our Self Catering Courtyard Lodges ( sleeps 4). Guests enjoy complete access to resort dining, spa, indoor pool, outdoor hot tubs, fairy trails, treasure trails, playground and plethora of other activities across our 500 acre estate.

These Self Catering holiday homes are beautifully designed in calming neutral colours and warm fabrics with open plan living, dining and kitchen, ideal for relaxation after a busy day of activities. The Lodges are nestled in a quiet sun drenched courtyard beside the Bishop's house, the original hotel dating back to the 16th century.

Guests have the option to enjoy fine dining at “The Pygmalion Restaurant” or Bistro Style dining from our Doolittle Bar menu, ideal for all the family.

For larger family reunions and family celebrations the Courtyard Lodges at Parknasilla are a perfect accommodation solution whereby you can opt to take an allocation of a number of houses and the hotel will discuss and customise your party arrangements to your requirements.

When it comes to Self Catering Holidays in Kerry we know that you have a lot of choice.

We are also quick to point that a holiday at Parknasilla is a holiday with a difference.
Why? Because our Lodge residents enjoy free access the facilities of the resort.
