“great for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

this place was an excellent day out for families. The day we went was really cheap too, but normally it is a bit more expensive. It would still be worrth it though. The history of the house, the grounds and the farm are all worth exploring. Even if the weather is raining it is still worth a visit.

Muckross house:
It was late in the day when we got to Muckross House. Lovely house and gardens. Well worth a visit. We didn’t get into the house but still enjoyable to walk

“Gorgeous house and grounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Loved the tour, the history and the scenic views. This house has the one of the best gift shops I came across in Ireland which includes items created by their weavers and potters.

“Touring through original decor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Muckross is lovely to tour, as you see how it would have been decorated in the 1800s. They even have original persian rugs that you are allowed to walk upon! An interesting tour and gorgeous home. Unfortunately we didn't have time to take in the gardens or traditional farms, but regardless it was worth the trip!

“Lavish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Decadent house and gardens, well worth visiting.

The tour guide seemed a little bit too focussed on the fact that Queen Victoria spent a couple of nights there.

There were some actors performing as part of the tour, which apparently happens once or twice a year, and that was pretty cool.
