Enjoy the views - We took the jaunting car from Muckross House to the Toric Waterfall & really enjoyed the ride. Pull off to take pictures at the "Ladies View" gap. Just watch out for the buses if you are driving from Killarney to Kenmare in the afternoon. We almost got smashed several times.

Absolutely beautiful place. Lots to do.. Great for family day out. There is little beach, nice waterfall, brilliant for picnic. Would be fantastic when the weather is good.

We rented bikes and enjoyed cycling round the lake. We got a bit lost at the end, coming out on to a busy main road, so we retraced our path and caught a boat back with the bikes to Muckross House.

The trails to walk and bike are in abundance. Great hike up to a waterfall or tour the palatial house on the grounds. There are also horse buggy rides if people aren't up to transporting themselves or boat rides all around the vast lake.

We took a horse and buggy ride through the National Park. I highly recommend this. We had a lovely driver named Jack with his horse Nancy. The driver was most entertaining and informative. The grounds are well kept with great hiking trails. We did not get a chance to take the tour inside Ross Castle but the castle was most... More

We took this tour with The Big Red Bus Tour, Killarney. A lovely sunny day showing us the best of the views to be enjoyed. The guide was very well informed and humorous making it a very jolly trip. They also allowed plenty of photo stops. The fare covered 2 days so we joined them the following day to stop... More

If you are pressed for time, you can rent a bike and enjoy a great deal of this part in the day, as I did. It is a very picturesque place with lots of wild berries!

Such a beautiful place, the scenery is amazing. The Ross Castle Tour is excellent and good value for money. Jaunting carts for hire in and around the park, are an ideal way of seeing more than you would on foot.
