It looks like a fairy-tale! You can walk around lakes, have some refreshment - and breathe fresh air, watch the hills around you.

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.

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

We hired the one outside from national park with his jaunting cart and paid him 10 euro per person for the guided tour in the cart!
