Fantastic lake and plenty to explore including Ross Castle. We used a boat tour company to go out on the lake. So much to see if you have the time

My review covers the 3 lakes, Lough Leane, Muckross Lake and Upper Lake (only Lough Leane was available to review). Anyhow, there are areas to pull over and park along Ross Road to actually stop and visit each of the lakes. They are gorgeous (as...More
