A Warm Welcome

Céad Míle Fáilte

Our staff are the very soul of Parknasilla and they embody our internal mission of “heartfelt hospitality”.  Céad Míle Fáilte a traditional Gaelic welcome meaning a “Hundred thousand welcomes”.  The name Parknasilla conjures up many warm memories for our returning guests and creates an expectation of elegance, freedom and beauty for those visiting for the first time.

It is often said that in a great hotel the staff know the guest’s names but it is an exceptional hotel that guests know the staff and their families names.

We look forward to welcoming you whether it be for the first time or the fortieth time!!
