We had a great time hiking some of the trails in the park. Took the path up to the Torc waterfall, stopping to watch the red deer enjoying an afternoon meal in the fields. The weather wasn't cooperating the day we visited, but wouldn't have...More

This is a national park and has great scenery. The mountain topography is quite different from most of Ireland. I didn't do any hiking but would appear to offer a variety of hikes from easy to very challenging.

We visited for a day to walk around the middle lake. Just lovely - it's about 10km, and there 's a nice cafe half way round. The path is good. Parking is free! Recommend - head up the road to the look out for a...More

On our drive of The Ring of Kerry. Wish we had more time to spend here. Torc Falls was a nice place to stop and take a short hike. We went up the 125 steps as well.

Definitely recommend this park! You can get as involved as you want with hiking, biking, horse drawn tours or even boat rides on the lakes. The Torc waterfall was amazing! Definitely worth the hike up the "hill" for the breathtaking views of the Irish countryside!

We toured from the Killarney train station through Killarney National Park to Ross Castle by pony and trap. Not only was riding in the pony drawn cart a fun mode of transportation, we were off our feet and able to relax as we rode along.

Unfortunately if you don't want tourist trap routes, don't go to Killarney. We were warned that it would be busy with tourists everywhere, and it was. At the end of the day we were tourists too. However, it did not take away... More

The area is still populated ( very sparsely), and the tracks are meant for locals who reside in the area. The tracks are not meant for regular traffic. The tracks would not stand up to more than they currently experience... More

Hi, we didn't walk to Torc I'm afraid, we drove out. It is a distance out of town and we had kids with us which restricted us from walking......but it would be about 1.5 hours walk from Killarney town centre if that helps... More
