I took a mile walk in the woods, along the lake. When I returned on the trail, the Ross Castle was lit up. It was surreal.

It is incredibly beautiful and safe. I did not get to see any of the red deer that I heard about but the castle inside and the views of the trails are incredible. There were swans and the leafs changing colors were some of the best!! I recommend highly going in the fall - October was just outside of tourist... More

Amazing location, and I did it via a Jaunting Car tour. Terrific and my guide was fantastic. Had plenty of time to visit Ross Castle, the Abbey and Muckross House, stunning scenery, a photographers dream.

Killarney National Park is an easy hike, but it has beautiful views of the mountains at some points and lush green trees at other points. The red deer are very tame there, but I still kept my distance.

You really need a car, as to not have to take a tour, but the area is amazing. There are plenty of things to do that do not cost much/any money. The area is so nice that just walking and looking can fill a day.

Some of the best scenery Ireland has to offer. Even on a misty Winter's day it's breathtaking. Make sure the camera batteries are charged!
