The Pressure Drop
The Ultimate Two Day Break
The Pressure Drop
This really is the ultimate 2 night break in Killarney and it works perfectly for couples who need some time away together or groups of friends who are looking for special time together after a long two years of hurdles.
The team at The Ross have put their heads together to curate a getaway that’s uniquely different from all others. This one is all about you… all about relaxing, reconnecting and returning home feeling like you’ve taken a weeks holidays.
The Pressure Drop package includes a healthy dose of Killarney’s unbelievable outdoor environment mixed with just the right amount of pampering, dining and downtime.
Your package can be tailored to your own style with regards to which days you decide to do each of the activities and your own personal level of fitness will be taken into account.
You’ll also get to know your way around our five-star sister hotel, The Killarney Park, just across the road from The Ross. This is because guests of The Ross have full use of the pool and leisure facilities at The Killarney Park. This includes the indoor heated pool, whirlpool, sauna, steam room and outdoor hot tub. You also have complimentary use of the off-street parking and electric car charging points.
The Outdoors – Lakes & Mountains
You’ll be quietly kayaking (weather permitting) across the open lakes of Killarney, keeping your eyes peeled for sightings of the magnificent White Tailed Sea Eagles, whilst passing ancient ruins and lakeside castles.
Given that we’re located on the valley floor of the McGillycuddy Reeks, Ireland’s highest mountain range and home to our country’s highest peak, Carrauntoohil, we highly recommend you take some time out to explore this hilly terrain by foot. Don’t worry, there are a lot of smaller peaks and hill tops to explore too.
Our top recommendations would include the well laid out trail up Torc Mountain. Strickeen Mountain, which overlooks the mesmerising Gap of Dunloe or challenge yourself to Cardiac Hill, which offers superb lake views and a steep challenging climb. Nothing clears the cobwebs like standing on the hill tops and filling your lungs with Killarney’s fresh mountain air.
The Mind and Body – Yoga and Spa
Yoga – A little meditative downtime always has a lasting effect on the mind and soul, so we’ve included a Vinyasa yoga class to help you wind down from the day’s activities. Vinyasa is also known as Flow yoga due to its relaxing, flowing style.
Spa – This package wouldn’t be complete without some ultra five star pampering in The Spa at our sister hotel, The Killarney Park. (just across the road). Your Spa Experience encompasses a wonderful combination of facial and massage. Beginning with a 30min customised Elemis facial, followed by a 30min massage, tailored to your own body’s needs.
Wrapped up in fluffy robe and slippers you can sink into the post-treatment relaxation recliners and completely let go of the world around you.
…And yet there is still more!
The Food Lovers – Gin, Cocktails & Dinner
A trip to The Ross would be incomplete without a night in The Lane. The Lane is the perfect combo of fun food and awesome cocktails. You’ll be kicking off with a cracking pre-dinner Gin Tasting in The Pink Lounge & Champagne Bar. This hidden little gem is one of Killarney’s best kept secrets. With over 60 gins from around the world, you’ll be amazed at the sheer variety. We’ve included a tasting of 3 gins, made locally to our area, with a selection of tasty garnishes to bring out just the right flavours.
Dinner in The Lane is always a treat. The cool music, ambient lighting and sounds of cocktail shakers set the vibe and the restaurant is a local hotspot, which is always a good thing! Wherever possible, food is sourced locally, and the menu is full of surprises and interesting taste combinations. We’ve even thrown in a round of sublime cocktails to add to the excitement.
The End – The famous Ross Box
It’s inevitable… All good things must come to an end – just don’t forget to grab your Ross Box on departure, we’re doing our best to soften the blow. 😊 A little pack of munchies for the journey home always helps.
