Nice tour inside the house

We had a good tour guide who made a nice tour in German. Wandering around the park is nice but taking the tour is really worth it.

Muckross house is a beautiful old house on a picturesque lake with perfectly maintained grounds and gardens. We didn't partake of the horse drawn carriage trips but we did enjoy a beautiful walk around the grounds. Well worth a visit

Muckross House was a gift of William Bourne (Filoli), CA to his daughter Maude upon her marriage. It is fairly well preserved and the tour guide was knowledgable. Of note, is the enormous set of antlers belonging to an extinct species of deer, found preserved in peat and mounted in the dining room. One can see the indigenous Red Deer... More

Glad we were able to catch the tour just starting! Beautiful historical house and spectacular grounds. The views from this house alone are worth the admission!

I have been here numerous times and I still never get bored of viewing the house and seeing how people lived long ago. Well worth the visit.

We called in here on our way through and definitely will be back to explore again. You can visit the gardens/land of the house for free although there is a charge for the house and possibly some of the gardens. No charge for parking either ! Great idea to hire a bike or take a horse and trap ride around.... More
