The Muckross House is quite a beautiful building. But more importantly, the grounds are fantastic. The building is on a lake and several beautiful acres. Take a horse and buggy ride around the grounds or a boat ride in the lake. Most spectacular is the hike around the lake to Torc mountain. You can hike to Torc waterfall which is really beautiful. We also followed the red trail and hiked up the mountain. Be warned this hike is not for everyone. It was quite strenuous at points - but well worth it with some fantastic views of Kilarney. Avoid the cafe if you can as the food is nothing special.
