Muckross house and gardens are beautiful and worth 2-3 hours at least. We took a fascinating one hour tour of the house and then strolled around the grounds. The lake and sky were a gorgeous shade of blue. We hiked up to the nearby waterfall too where I fell in while taking a picture of my son (yep, dopey American).

We only had one wet day during our 6 days in Ireland, and chose to see Muckross House. Patsy, our Guide, was very knowledgeable and interesting, with a good deal of Irish humour thrown in - a memorable visit!

This is one of the best houses to visit in Ireland. The building is in great condition and well worth a visit.

We were a family of five and wanted to do the jaunting car first around the gardens and waterfall. That was the best experience and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting! The man we had was so knowledgable and extremely funny and had us laughing the whole was round. Our daughter got to steer the horse which was her... More

well worth a stop and the 9 Euro entry fee. The house tours are all guided and Patsy was very well spoken and knowledgeable. It took just under an hour and then we revisited the wool shop for a more leisurely look around. The grounds are magnificent and you could easily spend a long time walking around, playing or enjoying... More

Really enjoyed my visit here with my fiancée!!Beautiful surroundings, beautiful house and beautiful gardens!!The tour of the house was really interesting!! Really beautiful furniture and paintings inside!! There's a popular pet farm outside but we didn't have time. This can be bought as a joint or separate ticket. Lovely restaurant and gift shop on the grounds.
