As a part of our CIE Irish Heritage Tour, Joe and I took a jaunting car ride through part of the Killarney National Park. We departed from the Brehan Hotel with Ulton and his big girl, Pearl. Our destination was Muckross Friary and the trip was lovely, with Kerry cows, beautiful fields, trees we don't have in the States and... More

We took a horse & buggy tour of the park on the day we arrived. Our driver was Michael & his horse was Robert. If you happen upon Michael, definitely go! He was a wonderful tour guide, very enteraining with his stories & knowledgeable about the area. We thought we would be taking a little tour around a lake, no... More

Our tour included the Ring of Kerry. Great trip around the National Park. Saw mountains, quaint towns and the ocean. True Ireland.

I lived in Ireland for 11 years and I can't believe it has taken me this long to return to the Park. But it won't take us another 11 years to return, we be back next month!

If you like walking or cycling then this is for you. Long routes, short routes whatever your fancy, wherever you start there is always something to see. Try the walk around Brickeen Bridge to Muckross or visit the Torc waterfall. Get a map and away you go!!!

I loved everything, it is a breathtaking place. I took a boat trip around Lough Eane which was relaxing and informative. Great place for cycling too.

Torc waterfall is stunning. The walks are very scenic and best of all it's free! Well worth a visit.

My daughter and I took a jaunting cart (a horse drawn carriage) through the Killarney National Park and saw a castle there too. It's very pretty country and the weather was beautiful.

I enjoyed being driven around the park by horse and learning about the area from locals. We rode to the abbey and the falls

We did the Ring of Kerry followed up by a drive through the park, it was breathtaking!! I will say the roads are narrow and winding but they are well worth it. We had a lot of fun taking dash videos of the passing scenery and tour busses that narrowly made it down the road. I would definitley suggest at... More
