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!

Checked into Parknasilla for one night as part of our babymoon. Our room was upgraded on check in which was a lovely touch. Staff, service, food and the hotel and grounds were exceptional. We look forward to returning, one night just wasn’t enough.

Parknasilla, in one word, is special. Chilled, relaxed luxury in an unrivalled setting. All the staff, food and accommodations were excellent. At booking I made a special request which was carried out with upmost discretion. We will may putting an annual visit in our calendar as priority!

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.

A stunning beautiful surprise waiting for us nearing the end of a bucolic drive through the peninsula, Parknasilla! The setting and the grandeur of the historic manor was breathtaking and the rooms, view, attention to detail and superb meal were second to none. Sad we only had one night, will be back for many more!

Prior to my stay, I added a note to the booking mentioning that it was my girlfriends birthday, not only did Parknasilla go above and beyond to make our stay special, they surprised both of us, by signing happy birthday for her when bringing the desert! I can't wait to come back.

Fantastic hotel. Food and location are amazing. Staff are extremely pleasant, helpful and professional. The lack of a lift to the third floor was a bit awkward with a baby and buggy.

Parknasilla Resort is gorgeous! We were warmly welcomed to the hotel & didn’t want to leave once our stay had ended. The grounds are just as beautiful as the hotel & provide lots of activity and amazing photo opportunities. Every staff member we encountered was very friendly & helpful. The restaurant & bar both had delicious food. Our suite & all common areas were impeccably clean. We hope to be able to return one day!

We were a party of three aged 10 to 81 and we also had our dog booked into the kennels. We had a wonderful stay and there was something to suit all of us. Staff could not have been more helpful. My daughter loved the guided shore walk so thank you Vincent. We hope to return very soon.

An absolute must if your looking to relax and unwind. Nestled along the coast line the hotel offers beautiful views as you sit the outside hot tub or as you enjoy one the many walks on offer. There's great spa facilities available to help you melt away the stress's of everyday life or you can sit a pass away the time in one of comfortable lounges while enjoying a drink and good book. If you feeling peckish there is a fabulous section of tasty treats on offer and i can highly recommend booking in for dinner at the Pygmalion restaurant as you won't be disappointed. Super comfy rooms and staff that are friendly and always went the extra mile to ensure your stay is perfect makes this an ideal place for any occasion. Both my husband and i really enjoyed are stay and are sure to come back in future.

Beautiful magical and dreamy Parknasilla. Very professional, helpful and super relaxed staff made us feel welcome and cozy. The most child friendly place ever. Beautiful spa overlooking the sea. This hotel built in 1800’s has a lot of charm and character. Thoughtfully designed and surrounded by breathtaking nature. Parknasilla is a very special find and we cannot wait to be back. The most wonderful staff even mailed us back our kid’s favorite plush toy we had since her birth and forgot in bed. Thank you. JV and family

Absolutely fantastic place with lots to see and do. Amazing facilities. The staff are very helpful, knowledgeable and polite. I would recommend this place to anybody and I'm already looking to book a return trip.

We had a fabulous stay. Our expectations were exceeded. The hotel has clearly had a significant refresh over the last few years and the balance between keeping with the traditional and having modern conveniences has been well done. The professionalism and service provide by staff is of the highest quality. The meals were excellent as was the ambience. We particularly enjoyed the facilities, especially the trails. One of the objectives we had for our trip was to hike by the sea. That was accomplished. we were able to spend the better part of 5 hours one day on the various trails with the added bonus of being to have lunch at the hotel. We had booked a sea view room in the main building. We highly recommend this as the views are great and there is nothing like the sounds of the sea through the open window. the only disappointment was there was no in room safe. While the hotel offered safe keeping at reception, it is nice to be able to lock electronics and extra cash away when one is out. All in all a great stay and a great place from which to start of on the Ring of Kerry.

The stuff was very kind and helpful, one example, we had a room for our family with two kids when arrived, the gentleman who guide us to the room felt that the room was too small and proactively changed the room for us without being request. It was a pleasant surprise and much appreciated.

We had a wonderful four night break , our room and bathroom was clean,comfortable and spacious, a superior double ,maybe bigger towels would have made it nicer! The room had a small sea view,we were first floor,next time we will ask for second floor as it would have a better view. We ate wonderful fresh food in both the dining room and bar ,served by lovely pleasant staff.Every day we walked in magnificent damp ever changing Kerry scenery ,the walks are well signposted and maintained. We also visited the spa and pool area,and sat in the outside jacuzzi looking out over Kenmare bay onto the mountains,wonderful. The thermal spa is a peaceful place with lovely saunas and steam rooms. Finally before we went home my husband had a massage and I had a facial, again very professionally done in a clean peaceful area with gorgeous products. I did not want to leave this place and hope to be back next year
