The Elizabethan style house was built in mid XIX century. Impressive view from the top of the house. Interesting tour. Beautiful garden and lakes.

You can’t come to Killarney and not visit Muckross House. Went there twice. Friendly guide. Lovely shop. Food at the restaurant superb. Gardens and lakes are beautiful. Jaunting cars too expensive but enjoyable.
