There are a lot of positive things to say about this attraction so, I won't dwell on the negative. The Gardens and Animal Farm are the reason to visit here. Our Guide was a treasure but, the Muckross House itself is a bitter disappointment. It's so impressive on the OUTSIDE it gives the impression, ' Wow, this is going to be awesome' on the inside but, in reality it was a big zero.
It really needs completely restored, to justify the admission
For the volume of people who go through here , the gate $$$ should justify taking it back to its former splendor . If you've ever seen any of the Queens homes in England, the Biltmore house in North Carolina, the Flagler Mansion in Palm Beach, the Adare Manor or most any palatial mansion in Europe this home falls sadly short. Do the Gardens....
