We drove through the park in a small/medium SUV. The road winds up the mountains and encompasses hairpin turns with tour buses either in front of you or coming at you. This requires some careful, fairly tense driving -- not for the faint-hearted driver or...More

Spent a day exploring the beautiful national park with its snow-capped mountains, mirror lakes, dramatic waterfalls and moss-covered trees. Visiting in February meant the roads were not busy and it was easy to pull in off the road to admire the scenery. Surpassed all my...More
We have visited Killarney National Park many times over the past 10 years. This weekend we decided to do the tour of Muckross House. Definitely worthwhile. The tour was both informative and interesting. We had a fantastic tour guide Patsy. Would definitely recommend this tour.
While we were there we had a lovely walk from our hotel in town to Mucross House in the park which was very enjoyable and took us through some scenic wooded area with lake views. Round trip was approx. 12k.
We were in Killarney for 2 nights and had 2 long walks in the National Park. It was really nice and so well kept. The weather was not great but it did not matter as the scenery was spectacular. Definately to be repeated.
Absolutely amazing, I would recommend everyone visits here, it is absolutely amazing, I would recommend coming to Killarney via Mushreamore / Millstreet instead of the main road and you come in with a view of the lakes and mountains directly in front of you and...More

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 beyond their capabilites. The horses are fit to drop. The drivers don't care if they kill their horses, they will just get another one. Drive yourself if you can't do the walking, don't give money to cruel men who exploit the horses and the tourists.

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 it was pretty down at the lower sections. If I ever get a chance to go again, I would love to trek to the top. It wasn’t very crowded and that was in the middle of the day.
