Beautiful grounds and sites of the distant mountains. I didn't get the chance to go inside but it was a nice discovery while I was waiting to take a day trip and kill some time.

Big garden in front of the House, a lot of green grass and flowers but nothing special. House was closed, so we weren't inside but it is not big. It is a part of Killarney National Park

These gardens are in a beautiful setting of tranquility and peace right in the middle of a bustling tourist town. There are walks that suit young and old alike and if you want a longer more vigourous trek, you can continue into the Ntaional Park...More
