Killarney Park Hotel

East Ave. (N71), Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland

This luxurious hotel in landscaped grounds is a few minutes' walk from the train station, shops, and restaurants, making it an excellent base, with or without a car. The distinctive yellow-painted four-story building dates from 1992, but appears much older, with its traditional style and series of small cozy rooms instead of imposing public spaces. Both the drawing room and library host full afternoon teas in front of an open fire, and there's a game room and a spa with 20-meter pool and outdoor hot tub. The plush Garden Bar has a bistro-style menu and whiskey-tasting menu, while the Park Restaurant (dinner only) is one of the best in town, a destination in itself. Food and drinks are served in the garden in summer. Bedrooms—all large, with huge bathrooms—come in contemporary or Victorian style, and most have leafy views.
