I was there in the early spring/late winter on a semi-rainy day and it was still lovely to take in the views of the park. It is expansive so you may want to have a vehicle to get to different areas, but there are also...More

After a lucky spell of warm and sunny weather down south, the weather made a turn for the worse and this put a literal dampener on our time there. If you're passionate about Irish history and culture, it's worth spending a few days in the...More

Killarney NP is a varied landscape of mountains, lakes, waterfaal and rivers. A classic glacial landscape. Lots of sites to visit

Even in the wind and rain there were stunning views and great photo opportunities. Impressive. It’s the largest national park in Ireland. Must see!!

Must see. So big you just can't get it all in but So worth the time. Now that Killarney House and Gardens is open for history and amazing views, this easily could be only area you have to visit if you want peace tranquility.

Have been to the Killarney National Park on many vacations and it is never disappointing. Always paths to explore that we haven't seen before. No need to do the jaunting carts if you'd like a walk in the woods, but the carts are always a...More

Beautiful. It has ample free parking, spotless toilets, lovely restaurant and amazing views. Thoroughly enjoyed our ramble in this park. There is a hike to the Torc Waterfall, but if you are unable to walk that far you can still see it after you leave...More

I visited the visitors centre at Killarney National Park. It opened only last year and is fantastic. I highly recommend it. It is interactive, interesting and informative. Cannot recommend it enough. I will definitely be coming back with my teenagers.

The jaunty carts and drivers are a cruel way to view the park. The way the drivers treat their horses is beyond disgusting. They push the horses to pull ignorant tourists for miles up hills and mountains that are way... More

We went on a hop-on hopp-off tour bus so we didn’t have a lot of time at the waterfall. We were told that if we “climbed the steps” we would miss our ride back. So unfortunately didn’t get to see the top of the waterfall but... More
