We have recently visited this attraction [Traditional Farms only] together with our kids. The weather was a bit pale, however the site is equipped by a transport van which made the 1st part of our visit easy. Eventually we strolled along the winding paths of this complex and viewed a number of attractions. Unfortunately the performances were scarce and in... More

Loved the tour...but, due to restoration (totally understand), it was brief and a bit boring. However, the grounds were amazing!!! And the Muckross Farm IS A MUST!

We visited Muckross House on Heritage Day and admission was €1 each. Fantastic experience, the house itself is kept in such brilliant condition and a credit to Killarney. The tour guide was so informative, she gave us such a large amount of information. I would definitely recommend a visit to Muckross House to anyone visiting Killarney.

Staff was so friendly. we went on the horse and trap ride that brought us around the abbey. Our guide person waited for us to go look around and take some images. He even let my special needs son sit with his dad at the front of the cart and help with the reins. He loved this. we went on... More

We only visited the house as our visit was at the end of the day. Each tour is guided with a very informative tour guide and takes approximately 1 hour. Very enjoyable. The gardens looked superb but unfortunately didn't have time to stay. Would estimate allow a good 4 hours to visit the whole estate.

We took a jaunting cab into the park to got the house efficiently as we had limited time. Your cab will stop and let you wander the grounds. Much of then oust was shut off as they were doing window refurbishment while the weather was good, which was a disappointment but makes sense. You can still get into the Mucross... More

The Muckross area has so much to offer for all ages and it is predominantly free. A perfect family place to see history, fabulous lakes and enjoy a pint or two at the Jarvey's Rest. Biking, horse drawn carriage ride and walking paths throughout. You need more than a day to see all.

The set up of the farms is beautiful, going from smaller farms to richer bigger farms and it really feels like you have gone back in time. its a lovely walk with the option of a bus. Its a very enjoyable day out and a great experience. On the day we went one of the houses was closed which was... More

Since it was already halfway in the afternoon, we decided to only limit ourselves to the 2 km hike along the farms. It's a pleasant walk, 3 of the houses are of real interest, with very friendly guides to give some explanation and answer questions. A bit pricey for what you get to see (but Ireland is expensive in general).
