OMG….can’t say enough, the grounds are breathtaking…so tranquil and perfectly maintained…and that was just the grounds. The House is grand and is perfectly furnished. The guide was very knowledgeable and articulate; I very much enjoyed my tour of the house and grounds. They took great care of my mother as well who has knee problems; there is a lift in the house, so you won’t miss out on the different floors, but your guide has to take you, as you won’t find it if you are on your own. Later, we went to the bar and had an Irish coffee that was so yummy, so were the biscuits (cookies) that were served with our drink. I had to ask the bartender for a few more they were so good. They were Bewley’s, Lotus caramelized cookies, oh sooo good! …the drink too..lol. Then we headed to the gift shop, it is very small but worth a visit. I purchased some hard candies that came in a glass jar, they were strawberry, root beer and lemon flavored, these too were very good, you can also purchase a number of other things but overall, not impressive as a gift shop and the lady there didn’t speak English very well, so it was a little bit of a challenge when we asked her about some of the things we were purchasing but all-in-all a wonderful day at Muckross House and Gardens.
