The Tea Room is not a large space. I love this particular place because it's a great starting off place to sit and enjoy a nice cup of tea or at the end of a long day of walking through the park. My daughter and I love to come in September or October and enjoy a cup of hot tea... More

Knockreer House is not accessible for the public. The view from this location is more or less obstructed by trees. So don't bother to go there. The only great looking building I discovered on the estate is Deenagh Lodge Tea Room which was built in 1834.

The house that was rebuild lacks any character, the garden is a mowed area left to go wild. There are neat steps but sadly that is all that remains. The are so many other things you should do rather than go here.

Just inside the gate to Killarney Nat'l Park and across the road from St. Mary's Cathedral, is this lovely thatched roof cottage, now used as a "Tea Room." From our table on the patio we watched the locals and their dogs, the jaunting carts and horses, and chatted with our fellow diners. The cottage is run as a training experience... More

The estate has some wonderful walk routes and its peaceful and quiet. Don't go expecting to see a grand manor house... there is a house, but it's not something you can walk around its not the original which was on the estate.

Fabulous amentiy so close to the town centre. There is a lovely riverside loop for walkers, bikes and horses. Much more pleasnt since the Jarvey horses took to nappies. Great playground and new cycle / walking route to Fossa. Interesting history of the Browne family / Lord Castlerosse etc.

This is a beautiful natural environment, close to the town centre, and very widely used by townspeople. No cars, only horses and bicycles and pedestrians. Luckily it wasn't taken over some years ago by the Golf Club!!!!
