Really beautiful and unique. Great combination of history and nature. The Muckross house tour is a bit dry for younger kids but very interesting for 10+. Also, Ross Castle is on the other side of the park from Torc Falls and the Muckross attractions, so budget your time accordingly.

My husband and two children aged 12 and 10, hired bikes to cycle around the national park. We were all carefully kitted out with cycle helmets and made to measure bikes, my ladies bike had a wonderful gel saddle. We cycled to Ross Castle where we locked up the bikes with lock provided and then on to Muckross and Torc.... More

Get a horse carriage trip if you are on a short stay and walk it if you are there for a week, beautiful views all over the lakes and mountains the Jarveys are well informed and will give you a history of the places.

Make time for this, you'll probably need a full day to take it all in, superb walking! The lakes are beautiful as is the nearby Torc Waterfall, peace and tranquillity in abundance :)

The Killarney National Park is a wonderful place with lakes, mountains, woods, a house, an abbey, a waterfall! Stay in Killarney and take several days to do all the different things. We camped for 9 days and spent a lot of time exploring and dog walking here, never seen the dog so happy! Parking is free and you can also... More

Peaceful, pleasant, just loads of outdoor space/green/views . . . You can walk, get around in horse and carriages, or ride bicycles.

We didn't see much of the National Park, since only a small portion was part of our tour. The part we saw was absolutely beautiful! I will definitely return to this site if I am ever lucky enough to return to Ireland!

A fantastic place to relax, to walk, to sit and think, to listen to the silence .... Well worth a visit.

Great hike! Trails are not as clearly marked and confusing. Trail maps were not much help either. In spite of these shortcomings, well worth the trip.
