We were not part of a tour. We just drove up (plenty of parking is available) and bought tickets. There was a bit of a line (queue) at the ticket office -- maybe a fifteen minute wait. Access to Muckross house is via guided tour. For the traditional farms (which is recommended), you just walk through. Another thing: There are some nice hikes around the adjacent lakes, and hiking costs nothing. There is a boat concession; you could take a boat ride across the lake for about 5 euros and hike back, or I think that the round trip is about 7 euros.
