I stayed in Killarney for three nights and spent one hour in the park everyday. It is tranquil to watch sunset by the lake and Ross castle for as long as you want.

So much to see & do, allow yourself a few days to visit this area! We hiked to Old Weir Bridge, Meeting of the Waters, Torc Waterfall, Muckross Abbey, took a jaunting car, shopped & had lunch at Muckross House and loved the farm there.
