When you are anywhere near Dinnis Cottage on the Muckross Lake loop walk, this slight diversion off route to the Old Weir bridge is worth it, particulary after a period of heavy rain.

If visiting this lovely National Park make sure that you you vist this lovely old bridge located at the 'meeting of the waters' where the 3 lakes converge. Only reached by foot or on a bicycle this is a great place on a fine day.

Stayed at Old Weir Lodge for two nights in March 2016. I was lucky to get a room on the first floor facing the road. Its nice and small yet very comfortable for a short family vacation.

Definitely a 'must do walk' around the Lakes of Killarney to check out the views and scenery from here.

The room was spotless and very well appointed. Breakfast abundant and well presented. A short walk to town, excellent location. A real gem!

Like walking back in time. Follow the path on the left just before the bridge ahead of the Dinis cottage. Not a difficult hike.

Dinis Cottage is well signposted but this has only one signpost off the track, which is easily missed. Good photo opportunity, expecially on a clear day.

Old Weir Bridge is located close to the Dinis Cottage and Tea House, off of the Kerry Ring, about 2 km south of Torc Waterfall. You will see signs for the Old Weir Bridge and Dinis Cottage and there will be a small parking lot where you can park. From the parking lot you must go on foot for about... More
