It was a wet and windy day so indoor activities were sought. The 1 hour tour of the house was informative and interesting. However the attitude of our guide, Patsy, was haughty and condescending. I think she needs to see a video clip of her...More

Especially in the off-season, we love wandering Muckross House and Gardens when we visit Killarney. In summer it can be crowded, but that's to be expected. Well worth a visit and cup of coffee in the cafe.

Spent two hours around the house and beautiful gardens, woodland hills and lakes. Very relaxing. Gets people away from electronic world. Much happier after couple of hours there. Wonderful pictures, stunning views. Clean air and water. Historical house even though we didn't go in.
