We were lucky with the weather, but this is a must see regardless. Whether you see it with a private tour or group your, make sure you spare an hour or two whilst in the Killarney to visit the park.

This is a lovely part of the country and worth a visits. As this was a driving holiday the country side was a prominent part of our trip. Good to visit in summer.

We took a trip on a jaunting car in Killarney's famous National Park. It was friendly and great fun. The trip takes an hour including 20 minutes at Ross Castle. It cost us €40, worth it for a lovely experience!

Took a trip from Killarney by jaunty cart to the National park and the lakes. Great scenery and beautiful lakes, there is an opportunity to take a boat trip onto the lake and see some of the islands. Well worth a visit

I really enjoyed the cart ride though the park. Our driver was very informative and humorous. The ride was beautiful and we saw wildlife as we went through. I would recommend taking the ride.
