The views are amazing. The drive is a bit dangerous with the narrow roads but absolutely worth it. Take your time and drive cautiously. Stop at the gift shop -the Irish sweaters are beautiful. The ice cream is delicious.

Lovely place. Nice boat ride with lots of information from the captain. Wish there was a place to rent a canoe. The trees were just about to leaf out. Walked around the trails. Lovely day

We rented bikes and rode through the park - stunning and relaxing! I highly suggest renting bike and taking some time to explore the grounds.

My Mom and I took a pony and trap ride for an hour through the beautiful Killarney National Park! Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly and the views were spectacular. We had about 15 minutes to explore the Ross Castle and grounds and enjoyed the green trees and majestic lake!

Killarney National Park has something for everyone. Great bike trails, jaunty rides, Torc Waterfall, Ross Castle, Muckross House and so much more! Lots to enjoy and so accessible from City Center!

Lots of choices for walks in and around the park. Many birds to view along with the lake area and views of the old castle were stunning.

It is full of things to do and see wildlife abounds and great walks along the Kerry way and up the various mountains that are part of the national Park. Also you can take boat trip's onto the lakes.

Lovely views however roads quite windy - you can get caught up behind some cyclists and they are hard to get by, but be patient, it is worth going slowly for the views

What a wonderful day in the Park. The Muckross House is breathtaking as well as the grounds there. We drove through the park and the mountains and lakes were amazing. The weather was beautiful about 60 and Sunny all day. We visited the Ross Castle but did not go in. The grounds around the castle were very nice as well... More
