We (a couple with two young adult daughters) took one of the guided tours of Muckross House in May 2015 and loved it. The house itself is beautiful, and the tour guide was very knowledgeable, although you must absolutely adhere to her instructions about not using a cell phone (I pulled out my cell phone to write myself a note...

We have visited Muckross many times for scenic walks. This time we did the tour of the house which is very reasonable, an hour long and wheelchair accessible. I honestly think this is one of the best tours I have done of a famous house. However grand and beautiful the palace of Versailles is, the information provided in Muckross was... More

What a terrific place to spend time and see this grand old Manor House, its history and the surrounding gardens. This magical place is located in the heart of Killarney National Park and affords a number of other attractions that are worthwhile to see nearby as well! The furnishing, art and decor are going to appeal to anyone with an... More

We went to Muckross House and Gardens on the Sunday afternoon of our visit. A very busy spot. Didn't go into the house as it was a beautiful day and walked around the gorgeous grounds. It was so relaxing and it was free! Horse and carriages in the grounds to hire of you wish. Cafe/restaurant was extremely busy and the... More

We did the tour and it was great! So much interesting history and it's a beautiful place. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the estate and it's history. The cafeteria food was sub-par but the gift shop was great!

Thoroughly enjoyed visiting Muckross House. Lovely historical home set in beautiful gardens. Take a warm top though, it can get very cold, inside the house as well as out.

The views around Muckross House and of the Gardens are breathtaking! If you have time, and maybe a group, take up the drivers for a horse drawn carriage ride around the property. We didn't have time so maybe on the next visit. Definitely walk down by and around the lake. The whole property was a pleasant surprise on our trip.... More

Whether you want to visit a historic building, explore the grounds and gardens, go for a scenic walk along the Killarney Lakes or walk up to Muckross Abbey (or even back to Killarney), experience a jaunting cart or simply browse the shop and have a coffee or a meal, Muckross is a must see. It's one of those "destination" places... More

We were planning on taking a tour inside, but the tour host that was provided tickets made it sound like it wasn't appropriate for anyone younger than 7 years of age and we were with our 1.5 year old. This was all overheard from another conversation she was having. Also, when our daughter let out a small scream she made... More
