This is arguably the most beautiful place in Ireland. I was amazed that, even though I've been here many times, I managed to wander and get lost and find parts I'd never found before. I could just spend hours meandering through the park. Wasn't that gone on the cafe this time around though.

So gorgeous. Make sure you make it a point to stop even if it is only for a half a day- you will not regret it.

Spent the day walking through the park and it was a great time. It was quiet, had amazing views, and saw some deer. Everyone should stop by if they can.

We did a jaunting tour in the park up to Ross castle and it was really beautiful. Good walking trails, no cars allowed and great family activity.

Visited here, beautiful walkways and gardens and views. Walked as far as Torc waterfall and got a ride back on the horse and cart. Enjoyable experience and would definitely return. Hopefully with better weather next time, even though it did not ruin the experience.

The national park is like stepping into a beautiful movie set. The views and woods are stunning. From castle ruins to waterfalls, to lake surrounded by mountains, the Killarney National Park is stunning!

This is an amazing place, situated on the outskirts of Killarney and extending for miles. Taking in the ring of Kerry. The views are outstanding, plenty of walks, Mucross abbey is well worth a look, all round, an easy place to spend all day

I went twice. For work and private and each time it was really great. The views are simply beautiful and there's plenty to do. The traditional farms are quite interesting and just taking a bike or walking around nature is amazing. The view you get of the lake and mountains is awesome
