“An Irish treasure”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Killarney National Park is a true Irish treasure. I can't say enough wonderful things about it. The park is absolutely beautiful. If you like nature, there are stunning mountain views, amazing wildlife, and great walking trails. If history is more your thing, there is Ross Castle and the Muckross House and Gardens to also take in.

Sure, parts of the park fall into your Ring of Kerry tour, but this is a place you need to take in on your own. It is stunning. We visited two of the days we stayed in Killarney and still didn't get a chance to see everything Killarney National Park has to offer.

“Gorgeous”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Hike to the top of Torc waterfall, worth the views. All the sights are beautiful! Free admission to the park but not to all the sights but you can enjoy the outside of the castle and such for free

“Killarney”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

When in Killarney you have to visit the National Park which would include Muckross House and Gardens, Torc Waterfall and a drive to Ladys View and Molls Gap. Fantastic scenery

“Brilliant.”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Despite torrential rains and high winds, we hired an open boat to tour the three lakes and then a jaunting cart to see the whole of the park. Absolutely glorious.
