A very interesting tour. The house and furnishings are of another time and in perfect condition. A highlight was to see the bedroom where Queen Victoria and Prince Albert had slept. The guide was wonderful. Well worth doing.

The House & grounds are lovely. The farms were a great insight to farming in years gone by. The setting is exquisite, a real postcard picture! I was particularly impressed with there good facilities for the disabled. In the house they have a lift to bring you to the second floor & to the servants quarter. I have been in... More

we loved the tour of the house. Totally worth the entrance fee. However, the farm was a waste of time although the long walk was nice. Do not do in the rain as the paths were slippery

Muckross House is a lovely old Victorian Mansion set in the heart of Killarney National Park. The guided tour of the house is well worth th effort and takes about an hour. (Note, photgraphy is not permitted).

A visit to Killarney would not be complete with out a visit to the house and gardens, bring strong shoes for walking though out the gardens and arboretum. Yourvwalk should include Tork waterfall and the old abbey. After that you can then enjoy the café on site.

You get a guided tour, interesting but you have to like history. IF not then its not worth your time. The gardens are nice but not like Buchart in Victoria, BC.

Outstanding tour of the house with its (often amazing and ironic) past - try and avoid lunch hours on busy weekends. What a setting!
