Muckross Park Hotel & Spa has once again been recognised for its all-round excellence in hospitality, as the hotel was awarded with two prestigious awards during the month of October.

Muckross Park Hotel & Spa was awarded Best Hotel Restaurant in Munster at the Yes Chef Awards held in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Sligo on October 9. Now in its sixth year, the Yes Chef Awards strive to recognise the culinary talent across Ireland, with over 500 guests representing chefs and hospitality professionals in attendance. Delighted to be representing Muckross Park Hotel & Spa on the night were Restaurant Manager of Yew Tree Restaurant, Zsolt Zidek, and Christian Baer, Sous Chef.

“We are thrilled with our Yes Chef Award which recognises excellence in food and service,” said Director of Sales and Marketing, Brian Miley. “Our team in Yew Tree Restaurant constantly strive for dining and culinary excellence so we are very pleased with this accolade.”

Yew Tree Restaurant was not the only restaurant at Muckross Park Hotel & Spa to receive an award this month, however, as Major Colgan’s was awarded the honour of Best Gastro Pub Experience at the inaugural Connect Kerry Hospitality Awards 2018.

Taking place in Ballygarry House Hotel, the Connect Kerry Hospitality Awards 2018 seek to honour the endless hard work of hospitality professionals who ensure that visitors to Ireland have a welcoming experience. Glamour, style and fun was the order of the evening at Ballygarry House Hotel, with winners from all over the country announced with a number of honorary awards presented also.

Whether it’s a family trip, a solo visit or a corporate retreat, there is something for everyone at Muckross Park Hotel & Spa. Set in the heart of Killarney’s National Park, close to the Wild Atlantic Way and Torc Waterfall, Muckross Park Hotel & Spa offers guests the perfect escape, filled with award-winning hospitality in a breath-taking setting.

While Killarney made it through to the last five, in the end it was Waterford City which claimed the overall title of Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021.

While the city was the unanimous choice of the judging panel it had to beat off stiff competition from Killarney and three other shortlisted locations: Clonakilty, Co Cork, Galway city and the village of Glaslough in Co Monaghan.

Among the things which impressed the judges about Waterford were its beautiful buildings, its liveability, its pedestrian friendly public space, its weather, and its easy access to the Comeragh Mountains and the Copper Coast.

The Chair of the judging panel Conor Goodman congratulated Killarney on its fine showing in the competition.

“Given the level of entries and the extremely high standard of those entries, making it into the Best 5 Places to Live in Ireland really is a wonderful achievement which I’m sure everyone in Killarney and Kerry is really proud of. We were delighted with the level of interest in the competition and would like to thank everyone who nominated a place or who engaged with us on it.”

The Irish Times Best Place to Live in Ireland contest, which is supported by Randox Health, began in June.

In total 470 locations were nominated by more than 2,400 people from all 32 counties for the title of ‘Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021’.
