“Time To Chill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

Everything about Muckross is delightful. The view from the gardens in front of the house is stunning. It is pleasant to sit and relax and enjoy the Mountains. The gardens alone would make your visit worth while. They weave their own cloth and throw their own pots. There is a viewing porch where visitors can watch the pots and cloth they buy being made. They have a farm for the children and a good restaurant where you can have a snack or a meal served throughout the day.

We had a very well explained tour of Muckross House. It's a nice visit to see how the wealthy lived in bygone days.

“Just imagine....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

This is a place to visit and just imagine you might of lived here. Or visited for a 'season' taking the boats out as the mist rose over the lake. Or maybe a trip to the falls to watch the wildlife. If you are able, you really MUST take a walk to the old abby located about a mile away down a dirt road. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. Real piece of history. Lots of trails to walk. You can even walk to town (or bring bikes and ride there!).
