“Walk back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Brilliant for a good walk. History is amazing and if you haggle with the jaunting car drivers and get them down to €30 go for it. Farm walk is worth it if you have kids or you are a big kid.

“Lovely Views and wildlife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Muckross House & Abbey are both beautiful.
Torc Waterfall is nice but a little underwhelming.

Definitely recommend going horse riding in the national park, we managed to get up close to some amazing red deer.

“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

A lovely part of the world. May be things are a little on the high side as regards prices. There great entertainment including traditional irish music. Plenty of walks and also horse and cart through the national.

“Beautiful place, magical surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Killarney lakes are beautifully located in county Kerry, Ireland. You can drive around the lakes by car, and get out at several places to do short or long hikes. If you like, you can hire a carriage. The woods are magical, with moss hanging from branches and lush, tropical looking vegetation and flowers. It is busy though, so I preferred to walk to avaoid the crowds on the roads and near main attractions. I spent one day, but could have easily stayed a few more days to explore the different areas on foot. The town is busy too, with night life, restaurants and shops, a nice place to stay for exploring the park if you like the hustle and bustle.

“As they say 40 shades of green”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Peaceful and beautiful. Take the time to explore the wonder of this park. If you use the Killarney Shuttle Bus you can get off at Torc waterfall, Muckross House and Gardens or the Abbey. We walked around each of these areas and loved it. Right outside the park by the abbey is Molly Darcy's Pub so if you get thirsty from the walk, you can stop.
