Muckross House and Gardens are a beautiful attraction and well worth the visit - we walked from Killarney to the House - along the lake and through the woods to the garden itself - it was a magnificent experience - highly recommended.

I wish i could remember our tour guide's name - but she was an absolute darling. You could tell that she truly found her work interesting and was so well spoken and professional. I would've loved someone with her tone and character to teach me when i was in school! The house itself was impressive, the history was also very... More

My son and his family live nearby, so we're regular visitors. My grandsons love it - especially the rock gardens, where they make 'camps'

The old stately home is really quite wonderful. It's full of history and romance. The gardens are also wonderful. Beautiful roses. We took a carriage ride out to the estate which made the experience that much more spectacular. A must on your drive through Killarney.

This was a very interesting tour and a beautiful house. You could really learn how life was way back when for the wealthy. The only problem was the tour guide did not want to answer any questions and she rushed us through each room. It was very annoying as she kept insisting that we "come along." I was not the... More

What an incredible house we got the grand tour so much there to see and the guide was very insightful and answered any questions I had without a second thought. We then visited the farm which was like stepping back in time the kids would love it. Great time and good memories.

This house and gardens were beautiful. The house tour was super. The guide was friendly and very knowledgable. The gardens are spacious and you could wander for hours. Again this was part of our Heritage Pass. The cafeteria was lovely and had a great selection of food. The shop was great and sold a variety of woolens and knitted items.

Muckross House and Gardens is so beautiful especially on a sunny day. I didn't go into the house itself but there's so much to do that it's not even necessary. I'm more of an outdoors type of girl and usually find that I forget what the inside of these places look like. There are lots of walks you can do... More

We spent 4 hours here: 1 hour for the tour of the House, 1 hour for the gardens and at the cafe, and another 2 hours at Muckross Farms. Good place to visit especially with a family, as young children will love the farm animals at Muckross Farms. If you are traveling around Ireland it is recommended to get the... More
