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.
Visits around the house at Muckross are conducted by tour guides every hour. Guided tours always provide a more intimate experience and I really enjoyed this tour learning about the families who lived here. You can truly appreciate how people who came here were inspired...More

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.

You don’t have to book in advance. going round with a guide is the only way to visit the house. You just turn up pay the entrance fee then you are sent to waiting area. It’s worth checking times to avoid waiting. It might be every hour. That’s how long it takes to go round the house.
We were not part of a tour. We just drove up (plenty of parking is available) and bought tickets. There was a bit of a line (queue) at the ticket office -- maybe a fifteen minute wait. Access to Muckross house is via... More
We were not part of a tour. We just drove up (plenty of parking is available) and bought tickets. There was a bit of a line (queue) at the ticket office -- maybe a fifteen minute wait. Access to Muckross house is via guided tour. For the traditional farms (which is recommended), you just walk through. Another thing: There are some nice hikes around the adjacent lakes, and hiking costs nothing. There is a boat concession; you could take a boat ride across the lake for about 5 euros and hike back, or I think that the round trip is about 7 euros.
