Did the house and farm tour and loved both. The house tour takes approximately 1 hour and the guide was excellent. lovely cafe and stunning gardens. The farm tour can involve walking but they call a small bus to take anyone a bit more feeble up to the farms and back. The farm visits were like stepping back in time.... More

Muckross house is a credit to the local business group. To take this stately home after 30 years of neglect and create the wonder that it is is incredible. The house is full of history and wonderful pieces. The guide was thoroughly knowledgeable and considerate. The grounds were fantastic also. I know the background to having no photography but I...

Our guide Paula made our visit most enjoyable with her knowledge and sense of humor. The house and history are quite interesting and the grounds most enjoyable to stroll. I recommend a visit here while in Killarney.

My partner and I have visited Muckross House and Gardens on the two occasions we have stayed in Killarney. It is a lovely walk around the grounds especially on a sunny day. As you approach Muckross House the view of Muckross House is stunning and coupled with the passing jaunting cars you feel you have stepped back in time. The... More

Muckross House and Gardens is ideal for a family day out in Killarney. You only pay for the House if you want the Tour, otherwise most of the Gardens and Park is free to enjoy. There are a multitude of walks around the lakes for kids to explore, from Governers rock, to the Copper Mines in the Park. Great place... More
