About

Wonderful gardens with a lake and mountain view. The place where you could picture many movies being made.

The gardens are lovely, but the house is only of interest if antiques and period pieces are your thing. Being an afficionado of modern architecture myself, it didn't do anything for me. But others enjoyed it.

We didn't realise how big this place was so did arrived until 1pm, however we should have definitely gone earlier morning as there is so much to do and see.
The house was nice, however there weren't much by way of people telling you much about it, it was self guided and the leaflet had only a small amount of information. The lady in the kitchen nearer the end of the tour was lovely though and provided some information.
We didn't get to see the fill gardens just a small rock garden near the restaurant. We skipped the restaurant as there was a fairly large queue and no seating free so I would definitely suggest brining a picnic.
When we first arrive at the house entrance there were some Januting car drivers right there. One approached us to ask if we want to go up to the waterfall, we initially stated we might later, he asked again and I advised we had no cash to which he offered to take us to the Abbey that had an atm or we could use Revolut. So we reluctantly agreed. While the man was pleasant and we had thought about going on one anyway it did take our time away from the farm which was our main reason to visit. Also being put on the spot we forgot to confirm the price beforehand, it turned out to be €60 for a short journey up to the waterfall and back the same way. It was myself, my mother and young daughter and on reflection I feel this was a little expensive, the journey while the views were pretty was brief and we actually felt a bit sorry for the horse also as she seemed tired and hot.
The last visit was to the farm and it did not disappoint!! We just wish we had more time there.
We will return again for the farm and gardens and walking to see the views, armed with a picnic and the ability to decline the jaunting car drivers perseverance for custom 🙃

We did a walk through the house to see all the wonder in the rooms. After we toured the house, we walked through the gardens. Good time of the year to do this since so many flowers were in bloom.

The House itself is impressive but the Gardens certainly stole the show , the tulips in full bloom. With green green grass & a lake , it's picture perfect.

There are a few attractions close by so worth a trip to Killarney National Park & its surrounds including Ross Castle , Muckross Abbey , Torc Waterfall.

The Muckross House is also in very good condition & the fire escape especially built for the Queen is still there , guess it adds to the attraction.

There is a restaurant close by & plenty of parking

We loved the Muckross House. We had a self tour, but there were a number of guides on hand to answer questions about the house. Gardens were beautiful too.

Absolutely fantastic, the weather was glorious and the gatedns were out of this world.
Fabulous colours and trees etc, all free to explore and roam. Great cafe and facilities on site with lots of walks. Couldn't believe we had to pay Nothing at all. Well worth a visit.

Interesting tour through this old manor house and gardens. Inexpensive entry. Did the on/off bus to get there and to visit other local venues.
