Escape to the Lakes this summer at Muckross Park Hotel & Spa, Killarney
Escape to the Lakes this summer with the only hotel located in the heart of Killarney’s National Park, Muckross Park Hotel & Spa. The Escape to the lakes package offers a complete serenity retreat including a boat trip with prosecco on the world famous Lakes of Killarney, a 1 hour 55 minute spa ritual, unlimited use of the vitality area with outdoor hot tub, and two night’s accommodation with breakfast each morning.
Journey across the renowned Lakes of Killarney through Lough Leane, Muckross Lake and Upper Lake, the tree lakes are nestled in a mountain ringed Valley including Mangerton mountain, Torc mountain, Purple mountain and Ireland’s highest mountain Carrauntoohil. Lough Leane (lake of learning) is the largest of the tree lakes, named after the monastery of Innisfallen on Innisfallen island. Innisfallen was a centre of scholarship in the early Middle Ages and according to legend, educated King Brian Boru. Visit Ross Castle which sits on the Ross Island in Lough Leane & experience the “meeting of the waters” at Old Weir Bridge, where the three lakes meet. Guests can enjoy a full tour of the lakes with a bottle of prosecco.
Hotel Guest Relations Manager Danny McClure states, “There is something very unique about a boat trip on the Lakes of Killarney, the lakes are very peaceful & Killarney is laced with history. We’re very lucky to have the natural beauty of the lakes, mountains and the National Park on our doorstep”.
The 1 hour 55 minute Spa ritual starts with a 35 Indian head massage, a relaxing therapy which involves massage of the soft tissues in the upper back, shoulders, neck and face. Guests will then enjoy an 80 minute full body massage. The tailor-made massage offers a tranquil escape from every day stress and strain by incorporating a pure concentration of Lavender extract renowned for inducing relaxation whilst counteracting feelings of anxiety.
Enjoy unlimited time in the vitality suite during this “Escape to the Lakes” break. Reduce muscle tension in the Jacuzzi, soothe any aches and pains in the Vitality Pool, relax and de-stress in the Outdoor Hot Tub overlooking the Blue Pool River. Awaken your senses with the aromatic essences of the Herbal Sauna; enjoy the Steam Room, Thermal Loungers, Ice Fountains and Tropical Showers.
Located in the heart of Killarney National Park, the Spa at Muckross has been awarded Highly Commended Destination Spa of the Year in this year’s Pevonia UK Awards and has just been shortlisted for a World Spa award again this year.
