“Spectacular scenery although the lake!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

We took our trip to the Killarney area in June and it was spectacular ! The first thing we did was to drive into the Natiobal park and see what was there! It was our first day so we just wanted to get an overview of what was there! We saw signs for mucross house , Ross castle and the torc waterfall! As our days went on we explored the national park ! Mucross house was spetacular! Ross Castle was impressive! We were so impressed by Ireland's prestigious Beauty and very friendly people! The park has many walking paths and for mucross house there is a lot of walking but Ross castle there isn't Much walking! Bring umbrellas because Irish weather changes wih a snap of a finger

“Stunning scenery!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

From our first visit, to our last day in Killarney, we were drawn to the magical forest and stunning lake scenes in Killarney National Park. We had some lovely walks around the lake, Ross Castle, and to the Torc Waterfall. The scenery was always breathtaking. Surely this is the most magical forest in the world... brilliant green, even in December!

“Very good”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Good opportunity for sightseeing. The Castle and the Muckcross Gardens are the best places if you don't have so much time to spend.

Beautiful photo opportunities. The Kilarney Guided Walk with Richard and Rua completed the Muckross House and Lake tour. This was a delightful day.

“Spacious, lot of trails”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

We had fun taking bikes through the park one afternoon, but definitely could've devoted an entire day to it had we had the time. The signage is moderate - could be a bit better, but it's a great place to spend a good-weather day. We biked through to Torc Waterfall and the Muckross House.
