Caring For You

Caring For You is our new guest care programme at Muckross Park Hotel & Spa to ensure we all adapt to hospitality’s new norms. When your desire to travel, dine, and unwind returns, Caring For You is our guarantee that we are prepared to safely and warmly welcome you back.

Our Caring For You programme includes detailed Cleaning, Sanitising and Health & Safety protocols. These have been developed in line with HSE, government and Irish Hotel Federation guidelines, and have also received Fáilte Ireland Safety Charter accreditation. In addition, we have implemented some new innovations, to ensure your time with us is as enjoyable and relaxing as it ever was.

Some guidelines are highly visible throughout our hotel, others are combined into our service offerings, and many others in the back-of-house even go invisible to your eye. In all cases, the wellbeing of our guests and colleagues is our utmost consideration, so that you may continue to enjoy your time at Muckross with new norms of safety and peace of mind.

  • Visible markings guide you safely in the hotel lobby, and our colleagues observe social distancing whilst checking you in and out.

  • Under new Government Guidelines, any international visitor arriving into Ireland is required to restrict their movement by self-quarantining for 14 days on arrival. We therefore respectfully request that inbound visitors produce evidence of their quarantine period as this will now be required prior to check in to our hotel. This can be in the form of an airline or ferry ticket showing arrival 14 days prior to your stay or evidence of a 14 day stay and restriction of movement in a prior location and we kindly ask for your co-operation. If you have any questions regarding the quarantine rules please do not hesitate to reach out to us on 064 6623400.
