We enjoyed doing the walking / hiking around the National Park to the Muskross House and Abbey. The views along the water are amazing. We took a horse and buggy up to the Waterfalls which has tremendous views again.

You could never get board visiting this park as there are several km tracks that can keep you going all day. Great for a jog, picnic, bike ride or scenic walk. Definitely worth a visit all year round.

Beautiful lakes and scenery. Careful driving required during busy tourist season as winding, scenic roads were not built for cars and tourists buses competing for room.

We hired bikes at the hostel in Killarney city centre and rode maybe 15-20 miles around a lake in Killarney National Park. The views are beautiful, and it was a day well spent. Also, the cafe at the Muckross house is a very good stop along the way.

So much to do and see in the National Park in Killarney, you can mix walking with cycling, boating, busing, pony and cart to get to around around the park. Its has many walks, from flat short walks by the lakes too long hilly climbs, or you can boat around the lakes and rivers, to a trip out the islands.... More

The views and countryside were fantastic, a terrific place for the outward bound types, cyclists and walkers. A certain lack of commercialism, gives it a very pleasing feel. a view around every corner and we had a very pleasant and informative trip on the lake.

Great day exploring park in a jaunting cart, included a trip to Ross Castle on the lake. Plenty of walking trails and quaint places to grab a bite.

I rented a bike and took to trails in killarney national park. Everything was well marked, pristine and beautiful. I had the trails to myself or just a few people in the area. Lots of places to pull over and take great shots. No entrance fee to get into park.

runs along lough L eane and contains local historical sites but what I most enjoyed was the moments of solitude once you got into the woods.

Took a jaunty through the park, the kids loved it. In the park you can see the old monastery and just stroll around this beautiful and well kept park.
