We went hiking in Killarney National Park, it was so green and vibrant. We loved it! Pick up a picnic lunch and go for a long walk!

The man on the jaunting car was very informative and made the trip more interesting. It is such a lovely relaxing, quiet place with amazing views, there are stop off points, a cafe, lovely lake, and places to walk. Would stay longer if we went again and maybe take a picnic or stop off at the cafe. It is a... More

Weather wasn't pleasant but enjoyed the park all the same, lovely tracks even when pushing a buggy. Was ideally located across the road from hotel.

Absolutely stunning scenery and a place to take relaxed walks, travel by horse and trap or just sit and admire the views. It does need good weather or equipped for walking in the rain.

Didn't like the smelly horses, which are all around the national park. We chose not to use them for travel but we're asked every where we went if we wNted a ride. Shops very dated town needs some updating. Loved the pubs and restaurants food is always good and very good value.

This national park features really beautiful landscapes and stunning nature. Furthermore the Muckross House and it´s garden was absolutely worth visiting!

The trail is well marked and not crowded (in May). The trail rambles through green woods, open meadows, hills, and highlands. Both Ross Castle and Muckross House are well worth a visit.
