We loved this - the farm and gardens way more than the actual house the walk through the older set up was fab plus a taste of homemade bread . A winner all right .

I went to Muckross House with my mother and son-in-law in November 2017. We enjoyed the lovely views around the house. Tour of the inside was a bit of a disappointment. But others may find it interesting.

Did not do the tour, but got a brief history lesson from our juanting (horse cart )car driver. We maintained grounds. Enjoyed the rock garden in the back of the house. How fun and a lot of work into a beautiful manicured piece of land.

There is much to see here including a tour of the house and gardens, short walks to longer hikes around the lake, having tea at the distant tea house, or taking a stroll to a nearby waterfall. They offer a cafeteria for snacks and lunch...More
