We really, really enjoyed this tour of the house and gardens, and especially the farm. So many interesting and beautiful photo opportunities, and a pair of sweet donkeys that just could not get enough attention. Highly recommend this beautiful place!

It's good to have a morning walk to visit the Muckross House and the garden alone, with families and with children. The garden yard is big with nice grown grass which is a good place for young childen to run and to play ball games....More

We will be there in August. Are the gardens worth visiting at that time of year? What would be in bloom? Thank you!

Aloha, I see that the guided house tours are about an hour long, but can you please tell me when and how often the tours are given; e.g. every hour on the half hour or every hour at the top of the hour, etc.?
