Fodor's Review

For more than a century Parknasilla, a towering, gray-stone mansion on a stunningly beautiful inlet of the Kenmare estuary, has been synonymous with old-style resort luxury, attracting guests like George Bernard Shaw, Princess Grace, and Charles de Gaulle. You can still sip sherry beside an open fire in the Doolittle Bar and dine in the stately Pygmalion Restaurant, but you can also enjoy one of two outdoor Jacuzzis, or the sea view from the indoor infinity pool. Well-appointed villas and apartment suites now stud the sylvan 500-acre grounds, and guests here have access to all of the hotel's amenities. Public rooms display an endearingly homey mix-and-match style, while spacious bedrooms (suites are ballroom-size) are beautifully coordinated with fabulous inlaid antique furniture; all enjoy peaceful vistas.
