Beautiful, untouched scenary

Breathtaking, scenic views of the National Park at every turn of the narrow road through the forest, bodies of water and hilly surroundings.

Killarney National Park is a wonderful place to go for a hike. No car or bicycle needed as the park starts right at the edge of town. If you're lucky you'll see some deer up close, and if you're not lucky there's the lakes and forest to enjoy.

My husband and I drove through part of the park and the areas we saw were so stunning! Some of the best scenery I've ever witnessed in my life. There are some narrow roads but it was such an adventure. There are many stops you can make along the road with great picture opportunities. I would love to go back... More

Gorgeous vistas, we especially loved visiting the Muckross House and Estate. This Victorian Home is a beautiful example of this time period and well worth the visit.

What can I say about the Killarney National Park that hasn't been said a thousand times more eloquently? It's an absolutely beautiful area which you'll be hard pressed to scratch the surface of in a day, a week or a month. Everything you've ever read is probably true - and more. What can I add? It's simply stunning.

Drive through, stop frequently. Take in the waterfalls, the lakes, the views. This is the Ireland of your imagination.

Travelled through park on way from Cork to Killarney. The drive was beautiful and some brilliant scenery, the best of which was 'Ladies View' and 'Torc Waterfall'.
