There's so much to do here, you must explore this whole area. We stumbled upon some horseback riding (short and long tours available), the Torc Waterfall is here (with sightings of four leaf clovers), scenic hike and much more!

Just so much to see and do. Biked from Kate Kearney to Lord Brandon then boat trip to Ross's castle. Just fantastic. And such great guides for boat trip history and geography course in best possible environs. Ask for Ducs.

Well worth a drive around or even better hire a horse and cart. Spectacular views. Wildlife is amazing. Plenty of stops for photo opportunities. Bring a picnic, go walking or cycling. Beautiful place. Ireland at it's best.

My wife and I took the Big Red Bus tour and it stopped several times in the park. Torc Falls was very scenic and the grounds at the Muckross house were beautiful.

Absolutely spectacular drive and scenery between Kenmare and Killarney - tunnels through the rock in the mountains, Moll's Gap, Ladies View and the Upper Lake. We had been warned about endless queues of tour buses but actually found those warnings to be exaggerated. However, Killarney town was often one big traffic jam. but if you make use of the ring...

This is as good as it gets for a National Park. A lot to do both outdoors and indoors -- hiking, wildlife, waterfall, gorgeous scenery, peaceful lakes, a castle, a manor house, sculptured gardens. Killarney town is touristy, but fun and you'll find some great restaurants.

From the time we drove into the park till we left, the views were fantastic. Plenty of places to stop and look around and take pictures. Torc waterfalls are amazing.

What I saw of the park was very pretty, but too many people and tour buses for my liking. Liked the fact that it looked like a fairy forest in places. I'm sure there's a lot more to see, but it felt to be that unless you're able to invest the time, you're not going to see the best stuff.
