Muckross House is well worth a visit. It is a lovely house, with a very interesting history. The gardens are fabulous as well, especially on a sunny day.
The Muckross House presents an excellent example of Irish Country living of the aristocratic. The home has a collection of excellently restored or preserved furnishing and offers a historical lesson of the time. There is a 6 - 8 euro entrance fee, which included a guided tour of the interior of the residence. The tours were infrequent during the off... More
Muckross Abbey was amazing... we did not visit the house as it was late afternoon. We asked for a jaunting cart back to our car and the guy took us round the lake and then back to where we left the car, he was informative, chatty and kind.
Don't miss out on the tour! The interior of the house is just as beautiful as the outside, and absolutely worth purchasing the guided tour. Afterward, have lunch or take a stroll on the sweeping lawn with a beautiful view of the gardens or water.
Very comfortable and reasonably priced coffee shop / snack bar. Right outside the coffee shop there's an elaborate maze of knee-high boxwoods that makes for a fun place to play tag with young ones (or young-at-heart ones). There's also a large wooded garden that was fun for hide-and-seek. Then there's acres and acres of beautiful grounds to explore.
So much to see and do .The House and Gardens are spectacular.I love the restaurant, service and staff very friendly. One must take a guided tour of the extensive grounds with one of the many local Jarveys .They always have an interesting tale to tell!!One can easily spend many hours here bring a picnic or treat onself in the restaurant...

Definately worth the waited for a guided tour. We came here on a very rainy day a week after one of the worst storms to hit the area this winter. Unfortunately, one of the twin trees the gardens is centered around had been up rooted and feel on the stone wall causing some damage. This aside, the tour is worth... More
This became a regular hang out place during my week-long stay in Killarney. You can simply rest an take in the view of the area or use it as a starting point of many hikes.
We visited post storm so the gardens and grounds didn't offer us much, the weather wasn't favourable either. The tour of the house was worth the visit. The cafe didn't accept cards for under €20 purchases which was disappointing as we needed warming up after a very cold hour long tour.
The house can only be seen by tour, and it is worth it! Learn the history of the house and its many owners. It gives a glimpse into a different time and how the families coped with tragedy! It is a must visit attraction in Killarney. Don't miss the weavers...beautiful woolens created just for us! I love my scarf, wear... More
