Killarney Hotel wins Ireland’s Best Wild Atlantic Way Restaurant

Muckross Park Hotel & Spa’s Yew Tree Restaurant has been recognised for its culinary excellence and recently picked up the Gold Medal award for Ireland’s Best Wild Atlantic Way Restaurant. The Gold Medal Hotel and Catering Review Awards have been running annually for over two decades and are recognised as the leading independent awards programme for Irish hospitality. These awards recognise & reward excellence in hospitality and catering sectors and applaud the highest standard of product and service in the industry.

Muckross Park Hotel General Manager Sean O’Driscoll said; “We’re delighted for the team who put a lot of hard work into sourcing the best produce from the rivers, lakes and farms along the Wild Atlantic Way”.

Speaking with Executive Chef John O’Leary, he explains “We are very lucky here in Kerry with top quality produce available on our doorstep. We believe in cooking great ingredients in a simple and uncomplicated manner. I’m extremely proud of my team on winning this fantastic award”. John and his team use produce from suppliers along the Wild Atlantic Way including Spillane Seafoods, Ring of Kerry Lamb, and Valentia farmhouse dairy; all cheeses are sourced from along the west coast including Mick Killeen cheese in Galway.

Set against the stunning backdrop of Mount Mangerton, nestled in the heart of Killarney’s National Park and perched beside the Blue Pool River, Muckross Park Hotel & Spa is a must visit for anyone exploring the Wild Atlantic Way driving route. Whether you are descending or ascending from the breathtaking Moll’s Gap you will find Ireland’s Best Wild Atlantic Way restaurant located in the original Victorian lounge of Muckross Park Hotel. Established since 1795, the hotel is the oldest Victorian hotel in Kerry and has been lavishly redeveloped to a deluxe 5 Star property, offering old world ‘wow’ factor elegance and yet the best in modern comfort.
