If this is what a hotel stay is like under covid restrictions give me more. I cannot praise the staff enough for their attentiveness without being intrusive. The food was simply amazing and our waiter could not do enough for us. I know Parknasilla cannot take the credit for the amazing weather we had but I’m giving them credit for it anyway . We cannot wait to return and do all the beautiful walks on offer in the resort.

We ended up having to cancel due to second lockdown in Kildare, so didn’t get to Stay this time but will definitely visit again - just wanted to say that the customer service when booking, calling to double check the cancellation policy and eventually cancelling was excellent - everyone I spoke to was so nice, friendly and easy to deal with - hope to actually visit soon!

We spent a wonderful few days in Parknasilla this August.We have stayed a few times before and were a bit worried at how the new Covid rules might impact our holiday but we were so impressed with how well everything was organised especially the dining and how friendly and helpful the staff were.Highlight of our year was jumping off the pier into the sea in front of the hotel in what must be one of the most beautiful spots in Ireland. Well done and a big thank you to all at Parknasilla for a great holiday.

We spent a lovely 2 nights in the hotel last week and it was all incredible. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Very relaxed but safe environment, a real credit to the staff in these difficult times. The view is just sensational too!

We recently spent a week at Parknasilla, it was a joy, the staff are fantastic, the hotel is spotless we felt at home and very safe. We ate in the dining room each evening and the food was also wonderful. we were fortunate to have had great weather and spend the days on the little beach swimming and reading or walking through the grounds. This hotel has it all. Well done Parknasilla you should be very proud.

Great stay in a wonderful resort. While it was great to explore the local area there is little need to leave the resort. An electrical car charging point is the only obvious missing facility. An electrical car charger is not expensive to install and would be a welcome addition.

My new wife and I spent 3 nights here for our honeymoon this week. We experienced the best service we have had at any hotel ever. Reception, Front of house and dining room service was always excellent, timely and friendly. We were also very graciously upgraded to an amazing room for 2 nights of our stay. We spent the first night in one of their smaller back rooms but this room whilst not the roomiest was spotless, comfortable and very well maintained with a view of the forestry to the rear of the hotel. The food was very good all 3 days of our stay, I recommend the chocolate fondont it was the best desert iv ever had! The staff, hotel and stunning location provided us with a very special stay and we were also talking briefly to a couple of have been coming to the hotel for 27 years, I think that speaks for its self. Thank you to all.

We had a wonderful stay in Parknasilla. I had stayed there many times as a child but it was my boyfriend’s first time and he loved it. It is a magical place. The staff were so friendly and helpful, particularly the reception manager Tammy who moved us to a new room without question and was so professional. I would definitely stay again. Thank you!

The environment created was absolutely fantastic. Staff were so attentive and put everyone at complete ease. In particular, a waiter in the restaurant named Dylan was absolutely fantastic! So professional, helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend Parknasilla. Particularly for those with families. We are back at the end of the month.

We loved our 1 night stay, only wish we could have stayed another night. From the location, the staff, our room and the food, everything was top class. While it was expensive, I felt it was worth it as a treat. Will definitely be back!

We had a lovely stay in Parknasilla , overall the hotel and facilities are wonderful - our room was slightly disappointing as we had booked a sea view and the room was only partial sea view. Really enjoyed the spa facilities and our meals were excellent.

From the moment you drive in through the gates of Parknasilla you know you are in a special tranquil place. The hotel is beautifully appointed looking out over the water with stunning views from the bar and restaurant. The rooms are excellent and immaculately maintained. The food and the service in the restaurant was wonderful. The grounds have a number of lovely trails that you can walk which lets you enjoy the tranquility even more. A great location and one to return to.

The self catering accommodation was spotless and very comfortable. We enjoyed two dinners in the hotel and the children made full use of the swimming pool. We all appreciated the beautiful trails and walks in the grounds of the hotel and enjoyed kayaking and the owl exhibition. Thank You.

Really enjoyed our stay at Parknasilla last week. The location and setting is so unique and coupled with the magnificent facilities makes this somewhere I hope to come back. Had a fantastic meal on one of the nights and the pool and spa area beats a lot of 5 star hotels hands down.

My husband and i had a woderful overnight stay in Parknasilla recently. from the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful. The decor in the hotel was beautiful and the welcoming open fires on a cold wet November day was perfect. we had a scrumptious meal in the Pygmalion Restaurant that evening and it was so relaxing. we wandered on a few walks in the grounds which were well marked. we didn't use the pool only due to having a cold but it looked amazing. We will definately be booking again soon.

We visited Parknasilla for one night on our honeymoon and wish we could have stayed longer. We were surprised with a room upgrade when we arrived and were thrilled with the beautiful views of the balcony facing the bay. The room was enormous and the heated bathroom floor was great for a cold October day. We only wish we could have spent some time walking all the trails and more time at the outdoor hot tub overlooking the bay. We would definitely treat ourselves to a stay again when we visit Ireland next time.

From the moment we arrived at Parknasilla for our honeymoon, my husband and I were treated like royalty! Our stay in one of the suites was fantastic - we really didn't want to leave! We found the service, particularly in the bar, to be amazing! We also paid a visit to the spa and its facilities and highly rated the experience. Overall, a really enjoyable stay in a fantastic hotel. We will 100% be back!

The resort it just beautiful. The views are spectacular across the bay, the trail walks have a few hidden surprises that add to the peacefulness of the resort. It is perfect for a break away from the hustle and bustle of modern city life, you can really unwind. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

It is peacefulness personified, but also affords lots of activities. Great ambience with a lot of ground space overlooking the water like the bars/restaurants and the fabulous pool and spa. We enjoyed the room size and the decor. The staff were super helpful and friendly. The food was excellent. The breakfast buffet was top notch. We will be back again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Parknasilla resort. We enjoyed the hotel rooms (nicely decorated), the indoor pool (nice and big), the gym, steam room, golf, archery, the food, and jumping into the Ocean! We had a very nice gentleman named Karel who was super helpful with our reservations.
