Muckross House, Killarney Reviews - Write a Review
My family had so much fun visiting Muckross House. We decided to visit on a whim during a drive to another city, and I am so glad we did. The house itself was really beautiful, and the tour guide did a good job bringing it to life. What we really enjoyed was walking the beautiful grounds and visiting the farms on the property. It was nice to get to see house the farmers lived and there were cute little farm animals to see along the way. We all agree this was one of our favorite things we have done in Ireland
House tour was wonderful. Male guide was informative and hilarious. Female guide was informative. The grounds and garden are outstanding. Don't miss the farm tour, it was really special. Nice restaurant too. Regular bus service.
Fantastic place for a trip. The history of this well presented by guides. Surrounding area simply stunning. Well worth visiting.
Kids enjoy the traditional farm - cafe could be better though The traditional farm is quite interesting as it builds from a small to a medium to a large farm with the differences in means very noticeable. It's a nice, scenic walk (bus available) with friendly staff along the way to chat with or answer any questions. Unfortunately it all suffers from what I call "Killarneyitis" - the tendency for most Killarney tourism businesses despite the presence of justifiable passing trade insist on shutting down or trimming back the services and the staff as early as October. I mean Muckross house cafe was teeming with visitors (it was a Sunday afternoon) - service was slow and tables not cleared well enough (due to shortage of staff - those who were there were more than busy). Most of the shelves were empty and the choice of food was limited. The cafe has beautiful surroundings with a fabulous view and various pathways amongst the rock gardens for the kids to explore.
The house comes with a wide open park with excellent views onto the lake and the nearby mountains. The park itself is made of greens only. Make sure to stroll around behind the house and visitor center/café. You will find a hidden garden with little rivers and Mediterranean plants.
