Incredibly beautiful area where one view is better than the last- Have visited here several times but never fail to be awed by the scenery. There are so many activities and places to see that we keep coming back.

Nice to walk in a beautiful park, only 10 minutes away from my hotel. The statue of Mgr Hugh O'Flaherty (The Vatican Pimpernel) is just outside the park entrance.and is an inspirational piece of sculpture.

We took a horse carriage to go around the national park. We have children so we thought this would be a great experience for them as well as saving their little legs from walking too long. It was great and would have been too big...More
