Irish Spa hits new levels of Tranquility

Award-Winning Spa at Muckross Park Hotel

The award-winning spa at Muckross Park Hotel offers a unique place on the lake to relax on muslin-draped chaise longues after your spa treatments.  You can almost feel the tranquility and hear the gentle ripples of the water.

The Muckross hospitality has that inviting personal touch that makes you want to stay.   Try the Spa’s wilderness treatment for an experience of exfoliation, hot stones, cool wrap and a final mist.  You may not be able to stand up hence the hydro pools and lounges (and don’t forget the chocolate dipped strawberries and sparkling wine).

Muckross has been around from 1795, and you start to think royally as you wander the grounds knowing anything you want is just a request away.  The Yew restaurant offers unbelievably excellent food, the fire in the bar is a delight.

Go ahead, extend your visit for “just one more night.”  See you maybe. back at the office.

EVENTS

ALL GALA EVENTS ARE BLACK TIE so bring the best, especially if attending during one of the many St. Moritz events like White Turf, and Snow Polo Tournament.  Expect the unexpected; during the 2014 White Turf event , the Kulm hotel sponsored a pop-up submarine bar using a real u-boat!  Recordings of turbine generators and the sounds of a real sub breaking through ice created an all-round sensory experience.  There were no shortage of customers at the bar.
