Guests have easy access to the rugged Irish coastline that lies on the Atlantic seaboard and many explore the world famous Ring of Kerry and the culturally rich Dingle Peninsula while visiting.
The beautiful town of Killarney is in the heart of the 25,000 acre Killarney National Park. Visitors can stroll from the vibrant town streets into the tranquil national park. Deer and other small wildlife roam freely and there are plenty of well signed walking and cycling paths to explore.
The town is known for its colorful jaunting cars with charismatic horsemen (Jarveys) in the driving seat. Take a jaunting car ride to historical sites such as Ross Castle and Muckross House and enjoy the lake and mountain scenery along the way.
Aghadoe Heights Hotel & Spa is located on a small hillside overlooking the town of Killarney and the magnificent lakes. The hotel offers a shuttle facility, giving guests the best of both worlds as they explore the town at leisure, yet are able to steal away to the peaceful surroundings of the hotel and wake up to Ireland’s most spectacular views.
When it comes to dining, The Lake Room offers modern Irish cuisine made with locally sourced produce and The Heights Lounge and Piano Bar is a wonderful relaxed restaurant with bistro styled menu. Afternoon Tea is also offered daily and is served with all the frills as well as spectacular views.
The Spa is a tranquil haven that should not be missed. The wonderful therapists specialize in beauty and holistic treatments. Special packages to combat jetlag and aid in stress relief are amongst the most popular. Spa guests can relax in the Thermal Suite prior to and after their treatment.
