About Monk's Lounge

Located in the original part of Muckross Park Hotel & Spa, this bright and beautiful lounge welcomes guests a stylish drinks bar and a series of comfortable couches surrounding a large open fireplace.

Monk’s Lounge is the setting for our famous Afternoon Tea in Killarney and caters for those who want to enjoy a traditional, champagne, vegetarian or gluten free experience. The lounge also provides menus for light lunch with a series of tasty treats and warm coffees, served in a relaxing atmosphere. When the sun is shining, Killarney National Park comes into its own. You can enjoy watching the forest come alive as you bask in the atmosphere of the outside terrace at Monk’s Lounge. Situated along the banks of the Blue Pool River, there are few paces in Killarney as beautiful.

Food was brilliant. However, the cherry on top was the waiting staff on the floor. They were friendly, polite and helpful.

Staff are very attentive. Food is amazing and reflective of the price, although priced around the norm for hotels these days. Covid precautions are flawless. Very clean, and great atmosphere.

I recently stayed at Muckross House Hotel and Spa in Killarney and I dinner at Monks Lounge. I was very impressed with service, friendliness, food quality and observations of Covid-19 regulations. I will visit this place in the near future and I would recommend it to everyone.

Burger disappointing, like a frozen patty, not great quality. Disappointed in the small bar area tables were not sanitized between guests. We saw people come and go and the tables were not cleaned down at all. Bar area also cold could do with a proper fire and a bit more atmosphere. Staff lovely. Not 5 star.

The service is excellent; Filipe made our day! I'd recommend the classic combo of seafood chowder and guinness, both are served to perfection.
