A step back in time

The word  Parknasilla,(means the field of Sallys), for so many is evocative of so many things, tucked away in the corner of a subtropical paradise on the Kenmare river, it’s a place of beauty, of rare plants, islands linked by timber bridges and coral inlets.

Where the sea, the light and clouds put on a continual show to delight the senses. A place where people come as guests and leave as friends, with its tradition of hospitality stretching back over 125 years. It has hosted royalty, dignitaries, family gatherings and romantic getaways.

It has provided people with that peaceful haven to recalibrate and recharge their batteries. Still, it has also been that place of quite inspiration for writers and artists from George Bernard Shaw to Cecilia Ahern.

With its winding walks, this 200-acre estate walled gardens, golf course, island-dotted bay and spa coupled with a world-class resort with 4-star hotel houses and apartments it provides one with that perfect retreat to suit all tastes.

It is a place of many layers constantly evolving, seen through the prism of history it’s a place where people create their own be it in the friends formed or memories laid down to last a lifetime, a place to return to again.
