Despite a rainy day, we very much enjoyed visiting Muckross House. The tour of the home was interesting and full of historic details. The house is well situated and has what I am certain are beautiful gardens later in the spring. There is a new visitor center with a shop and cafe on the grounds.

Full of history, the guides are knowledgable. It was raining very hard on the day we went so didn't explore gardens but there is a nice tea room!

Again this place in the autumn, with all the various colours of the leaves, still on the trees, and gardens, which were well kept, but not in full bloom, at that, time of the year, was still, a photographers dream.

An old mansion built in a valley with beautiful views of mountains and a loch (lake). In my opinion, one of the most scenic places in Ireland. They offer public tours. Similar to Biltmore House in Ashville, NC but smaller.
