  • All I can say is Wow. Fabulous. Beautiful. So much to see. Camera place for sure. Jaunting cars for hire cycling hires. Or just lovely place to go for an evening walk. Killarney is such a beautiful town. Something there for everyone of all ages! I highly recommend hiring a Bike you see a lot more of National park cycling at your own speed and pace. Plenty to see. For all family even the dog can have a go but Must keep on lead!! Great family day out.

  • This is an amazing resource that shows the far south west of Ireland to its full and most beautiful potential. There are tree species located in this woodland ranging from the original wildwood that grew after the last ice age, to collections introduced from many continents by previous land owners. This allows for a multitude of other flora and fauna to be discovered. This is a much loved park, not only by the Irish who travel to visit this spectacle, but by coach loads of tourists who visit daily. There is a marvellous gift shop, restaurant, sweet shop as well as amazing lakes and so much more to do and see. A visit is required to truly experience this beautiful place, then you'll want to return as one day just isn't long enough to explore this treasure.

  • Beautiful and had an amazing time. I enjoyed Killarney even more than I enjoyed being in Dublin. I suggest renting bikes and riding around the parks which saves a lot of time. There are so many things to do and see. There is castles, muckross house, waterfalls and more. We also did a 3 hour kayaking experience all across the lakes of Killarney national Park and it was absolutely AMAZING. Killarney national Park is amazing with all of it's historical and natural wonders.

  • We had a wonderful time riding though the park, even with a little chill in the air. The baby ducks by the castle we're fun for the kids too. And the portions we drove through with the tour group were majestic and thick. Amazing scenery!

  • Killarney National Park was my favorite part of Ireland. There is beauty everywhere you look. From a million shades of green, to mossy rocks, old Holly trees, wild sheep and horses, and wildflowers everywhere. The drive alone through the mountains and park are worth your time, but be sure to get out at some of the view points to soak in the splendor of all that is Killarney park! I left a piece of my heart here.
