    Very nice park with picturesque scenery. Highly recommend a carriage ride with Ultan as your driver. He had so much information and an entertaining delivery!

    We parked outside Kate Kearney's cottage about 10am, the car park was full at this time. We then walked in about 4 km before turning back. Its a really easy walk situated in a place that's both stunning and peaceful. We really enjoyed our walk,

    A superb visitor attraction, the house is fascinating with really nice local guides to chat to in each room. Perhaps more signage in the beautiful rooms in the house would also be good. All around there are gorgeous walks including to Torc Waterfall. There is a very nice cafe, it can get somewhat crowded though.

    Waterfall is cute in itself, but its the walks around it that I love. Just go up left of the falls, it can get a bit steep as you go up, keep following the coloured signs for different level of walks. Its a stunning area and great place to spend a few hours.

    What an amazing experience! Geoff was an excellent guide and shared some much information. The hawk, Arizona, was magnificent and really gave us the best experience. I would highly recommend this.

    The day that we went was very wet and foggy - but, despite this one can still see the appeal. The view was lovely (from what can be seen behind the fog!) and there was a very cosy cafe just behind the view point too.

    While staying at the Lyrath Estate, Hawkeye Falconry is right on the premises.
    My husband and I were unable to participate in Falconry, as we had to move on to the next county!. When we return to Kilkenny, that is the first activity on our list!
    What a fabulous time we had with Archery!! Such an experience!
    Hawkeye Falconry staff is unbelievable, so accommodating! John was amazing, patient and so personable!! John made the session exciting and explained everything and safety precautions in detail!! Organized and punctual! John gave us plenty of time to practice and then on to the competitions in which I beat my husband in competition rounds!!
    Great craic!!! If you are in Kilkenny, Hawkeye Falconry is a MUST!! We truly had the best time and one of the best experiences on our holiday in Ireland!! Highly recommended!!!!
    Thank you, Hawkeye Falconry for an unforgettable experience!

    Called in on a Thursday night with the family. Even though I'm from Killarney, it was my first time. Fabulous place. Food was fantastic and the beers was great. The staff were great too. It was quiet when we left but I'll be heading back here again, the next time I'm heading out.

    One of the best Cathedrals in Ireland. Very accessible to all ages. Lovely and calming to visit. It has a cavernous feeling but the space can be used to pray or reflect or whatever you would do in a normal church. Plenty of stained glass and wonderful architecture to enjoy.

    On our visit to Killarney National Park we started with Muckross House and Farms. We bought the combo ticket, and toured the house and gardens first, which were in a pretty setting and good example of a manor house. We then walked to the farm which offered a good representation of the various workings of an Irish farm and the people needed to keep it running. There was a steep walk to the first building, so we took the shuttle, which was easy to access. We enjoyed the animal exhibits, and the staff explaining butter and bread baking were interesting. Ample parking and a gift shop with light food available.
