Pampered Pooches at Muckross Park

Here at Muckross Park Hotel & Spa we understand the importance of total relaxation and pampering. Upon arrival to the hotel our guests are assured of luxury, comfort, unrivalled service along with top class cuisine. Now you can indulge your canine companion to the same level of 5-star service!

Muckross Park Hotel & Spa, are delighted to announce that we are now becoming a pet friendly facility and allowing our canine friends to bask in the luxurious surrounds of our hotel apartments. This will allow Pets to be treated like VIP’s (Very Important Pets) and enjoy a well-deserved break as much as their owners!

Avoid the hassle of securing a ‘dog-sitter’ when you next plan a breakaway, and instead, treat your dog to a 5-star break of their own!  Pampered pooches at Muckross Park can luxuriate in a cosy apartment, in which our attentive staff will ensure they have a constant supply of water, and of course will deliver their meals to their apartment!

As a resident, you can relax in The Spa, with a full range of Organic Pharmacy reatments, and let the team at Muckross Park arrange your dog’s exercise regime.

To really treat your pooch, why not select for them a delicious treat from the Doggie “Pampered Pooches” Menu. The chef will also be keeping his juiciest bones for this new breed of guest to enjoy.
