About the Castlerosse Park Resort Holiday:

At the Castlerosse Park Resort, we invite you to discover the breath-taking beauty of the Killarney National Park, encompassing over 25,000 acres of extraordinary ecology including the spectacular Lakes of Killarney and the majestic mountain peaks of the McGillycuddy Reeks.

Our idyllic location on the shores of the Lower Lake and just a 30-minute walk away from Killarney Town Centre through the National Park offers a truly unique and memorable setting for your stay with us. Our home within the Resort, is an integral part of the experience so whether you choose to stay within the Hotel itself or in one of our cosy Holiday Homes or Golf Lodges, you can be certain of a peaceful and relaxed holiday amidst the serenity of nature.

It was in 1961 that a dream came true, and Minella was purchased by the late Jack and Babs Nallen, taking two years of refurbisment, with the opening of their country house hotel in April 1963. Add on another 50 years, with extensive redevelopment and constant refurbishment, Minella is now managed by John and Elizabeth, siblings of Jack and Babs, fulfilling that dream.

The Minella name is also recognised in the world of horse racing, and John is actively involved in the training and breeding of race horses. Take a look at Minella Racing for more information.
So on behalf of our staff, we offer you a very warm welcome to Clonmel and Minella, aiming to make you feel as comfortable and “at home” during your stay with us!
