the park encompass an area with versatile landscape: lakes, garden, a hiking route on the slopes of a mountain/hill and an historical abbey. All of these creates a place where you can spend a few hours or even a couple of days - depending on your time.

I was traveling with my husband and 3 adult children ages 22-24. We rented bikes and rode thru the park. Probably our favorite day in Ireland.

If you don't enjoy this place, I honestly don't know what to tell you. It's probably more a problem with you than the place. Gorgeous views everywhere you look

Couldn't spend as much time to really enjoy due to our schedule, but beautiful. Nice to take an afternoon just to relax and take in some scenery.

I love Killarney. There is so much to see. We enjoyed the tour of Muckross House very much. The hike up to Toric waterfall is a must. Plan on spending a full day there.

Seeing Ross Castle and waling the grounds. Lots of green space and the ferns were beautiful! The canons were unique and fun to see.

I have no words because this place was absolutely the highlight of my entire two week Ireland trip. We rented bikes for two days and went crazy, visiting everything even if it took two hours getting to it on our bikes. The scenery around this place is just break taking. If your into nature, scenery, mountains, waterfalls and everything else... More

We have been to KIllarney National Park a few times, but each time we find something different to appreciate there. This time we got a jaunting car through the park, our children aged 3 and 6 were allowed to sit up front and 'drive' the pony through the park. The guide included little stories for the children as he told... More

Albeit it was raining and the height of the tourist season,the ring of Kerry was pretty good. The park is fantastic and the views (if you can see them) are awesome. The little villages along the way are quaint and picturesque. One problem - 50 seat motor coaches on what is a one car wide road are not welcome here!... More
