Average time to visit

It is very difficult to predict the weather in Ireland - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but Ireland does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.

Haile Brant (Staff)

This hotel has an ideal location in the centre of town and has an extremely welcoming atmosphere. During your stay make sure you visit the Whiskey Tasting Room and the popular Park Restaurant. If in search of relaxation, head down to the large lap pool featured in the leisure area. Accompanying the lovely pool is an outdoor jacuzzi, a small plunge pool, an indoor jacuzzi, a sauna to warm your tired muscles and even a steam room. A small fitness studio is also a great way for guests to keep their routine and ensure wellness even while on holiday. When its time to retire for the evening, be met with chic and modern dcor in your room that focuses on clean lines and beautiful minimalism with a touch of 1920s flair. The claw foot tub in the bathroom was the perfect ending to a beautiful day exploring the incredible Torc Waterfalls and Killarney National Park.
