Lovely house and gardens in the National Park. Nice tea rooms and beautiful views. The park is a joy to explore specially on a good day. Bring the kids they will enjoy it.

This is one the highlights of our tour of Ireland. You can walk at Muckross House and Gardens or you can take Patrick (driver) and Sally (Patrick;s horse) for a ride around the estate to the waterfalls.

Had a really lovely day here yesterday. The sun shone down on us and the well card for gardens looked amazing. All the staff were very friendly. Intriguing garden trails, good value restaurant, great crafts also on sale. parking was easy. We did not visit the house but will the next time should we return to Ireland.

Muckross House is very interesting and provides a window into another age. Do give the farms a visit also. and try the fire-baked soda bread with lashings of country butter - delicious. The views are majestic - lake, mountain and forest. Truly Beuaty's Home.

The house was nice and the gardens were in good shape for early April. The best part of this was our tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and pointed out some really interesting items in the house. Some of the wood inlaid tables and carved furniture were amazing.
