Autumn breaks at The Killarney Park
Family midterm holidays and autumn getaways
As the year winds down and the leaves begin to turn, Killarney takes on a lovely mellow character. While the town is still lively, the summer crowds have been and gone, and the pace of life slows down a little. October is the perfect time to take advantage of the school break and book a five-star stay at The Killarney Park Hotel.
When the sun shines, the scenery is spectacular. Adventurous adults and children with limitless energy to burn can spend their days roaming on foot or cycling through Killarney National Park’s 25,000 acres, venturing out for epic hikes in the mountains, and exploring the friendly, historic town of Killarney. There is so much to do here: at this time of year, visits to the Pumpkin Patch in Killorglin are especially popular, and Muckross Traditional farms offer an engaging experience filled with history, adorable animals to pet, and a fun playground to wear out the wiggles.
If the weather turns, you have a choice: you can bundle up and venture on, or you can retreat to the welcoming luxury of The Killarney Park. The hotel is decorated to celebrate the changing seasons, with Halloween touches appearing as the month wears on, and we host dedicated children’s activities to keep them busy no matter what the weather. The restaurants feature seasonal menus to bring you the best of autumn from our local artisan suppliers, and The Garden Bar offers a full children’s menu with all their favourites. Wet and windy days (and we do have a few) hold their own charm. There is nothing cosier than sitting beside the fire with a warming drink, and the hotel is full of quiet corners where you can disappear into a book or a daydream. The billiards room is also a favourite, and children of all ages love to spend endless hours splashing and swimming in our heated indoor pool. If you are in search of some pampering, The Spa beckons. Soak the world away in the hot tub, feel your muscles unwind in the sauna, and book yourself a nurturing treatment with our expert therapists.
