Muckross Traditional Farms
Ranked #19 of 111 things to do in Killarney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 14, 2012

The depiction of three different types of Irish farms from the 1930s left a lasting impression. The costumed hostesses described the farm family's lives, answered questions, and demonstrated a home skill or prepared a daily staple of the era. Free samples were included.

This tour truly took me back to a different time.

Going to Killarney with many years and never knew this fine attracion existed and I visit muckross itself three and four times a year.
This is a great place to bring children , but also my husband and I really enjoyed it. The houses are fantastic a real step back in time. We were there on the bank holiday weekend and there was a group of Harpists in the main houses, the music from these young children was fantastic. The smell of turf and the bread baking in the pot over the fire was amazing. you can hop on and off the bus that takes you to each house if you dont want to walk as the weather was lovely when we were there we walked and the scenery is amazing, you can watch the farmer ploughing with the horses. I would imagine in the summer a great place for a picnic and there are more animals as well. We had a great day and there is a playground in a wooded area great for kids maybe over 5. After visiting the farm we then went over to muckross gardens for another fine walk. a magical day in Muckross.

The farms were quite unique. You can explore each farmhouse and chat with the farmers about how life used to be. Plenty of animals to look at, as well as home cooked bread to taste. We were there on a sunny autumn day which made the walk up and around the hill really enjoyable. The kids enjoyed the small animals shed with sheep, lambs and puppies (one of which chewed their mum's scarf)
