I believe this Park extends to some 25,000 acres and the woods, lakes, scenery etc are fantastic. Very busy around Ross Castle but there are many routes to walk, bike or take a horse and cart (jaunts).

We did this as part of the Ring of Kerry so probably did not do the whole park justice. It forms part of the Ring of Kerry drive and you get some fantastic scenery through the park section. It is worth doing your homework on...More

We stayed at a B&B within the Killarney National Park, which enhanced our experience. We had perfect weather all 3 days we were there, including the day we drove the Ring of Kerry which passes through this scenic park. Lots to see and many places...More

Our tour included a ride thru Killarney National Park and we admired the natural beauty. This month of May had not "Spring" yet, so no heather or colors. Love the "Leprechaan crossing" sign. An enjoyable scenic ride.

Drove with a rental car and had no issues with narrow lanes, just be attentive. We did this trip after driving the Ring of Kerry. The weather was sunny and comfortable which greatly enhanced our experience.

If you are planning a driving tour of Ireland be certain to put Killarney National Park on your itinerary. The drive through the Park is beautiful and there are several places to pull off and enjoy the lakes.

You can hire a horse cart and driver who will stop a wait for you in the park. I don’t know how much it costs, but they park downtown and you can negotiate with them.
