Be sure to visit the national forest and the castle located on the lake. It is only a very short distance from town so you have to have a very good excuse to skip over this attraction. What we did is take a horse and carriage from the center of town to the castle and you get the advantage of... More

This is a huge park with lots to do, whether you tour Mock Ross Castle or hiking along the trails. There are large herds of deer here, but don't bring your rifle because they are protected. It is around the town of Killarney so there are plenty of hotels, shopping and restaurants. Great place for a vacation.

This beautiful park is a must when you find yourself in Killarney. 3 walking trails, all of them happen to pass through woods, with no one around but high trees and distant wild animal calls.

The deer were rutting when we walked here which was amazing to hear. There is a large lake with boat trips on it, also a lovely river walk. A quaint little cafe and toilets.

Loved the peace in the National Park & the return to a wonderful Hotel. As it was the rutting season we sat out & heard the bellowing & it was both magical & a bit scary, would not have liked to have been in the Park when darkness fell! Nothing we truly can say we disliked!

We took a horse and buggy ride around the park. It stops at the castle and takes in other areas of the park. The buggy drivers are very entertaining as well. Well worth the 13 euros.
