This place is full of hidden gems and views that can be enjoyed throughout the park. There are sheep in the road and i do wish the drivers for the motor bus coaches slowed down like all the rest of the vehicles in the area....More

Narrow roads with tour buses barreling towards you.... but well worth it as it is a beautiful area of Ireland.

You cannot help but be blown away by the vastness and beauty of Ireland. It just doesn't stop giving as far as scenery and wildness goes. South West Ireland is a hidden treasure.

The road is very scary, narrow and winding!! The views are incredible! You really need more than two days to explore and enjoy the sights. We stayed at the Parknasilla and that was a long way but a beautiful resort!!

A lovely extensive park close to the town centre, leading to Ross Castle and beyond. You can also take Jaunty Car rides through the park to the local lough.

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

I think you can park but at the beginning but need to walk and horse carrages don’t need to be booked
