Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Maxing selection of farm houses staged as they would have been 100 or so years ago. With workers ans wives there to answer questions and show you how life was lived.
    Animals in excellent condition, well fed and housed in great facilities. Children can see how different children lived in the different farm houses from tiny to a big farmhouse. There is a small bus to tale those who cant manage the distance or the hillside from one farm to another. Unfortunately the Schoolhouse was closed and the Smithy unmanned this was a big disappointment .

    Very photogenic castle in Killarney National Park. I highly recommend the boat tours that depart from the area! There are restrictions and a cute little cafe outside the castle. Great place to grab a coffee and take a little rest during your time in the park.

    I chose to go the Abbey because I wanted to see the 600+ year old yew tree growing in the courtyard. The tree was amazing and the Abbey itself was very interesting.

    Mega view I bet on a clear day. What we could see between the rapidly moving stormm clouds of Agnes was pretty amazing! For a brief moment we could see islands in the water and stunning rolling hills. Would definitely like to try again on a finer day!!

    Located on the outskirts of Killarney (west of town center). This beautiful, large, serene and impressive Cathedral was built in the mid 19th Cent.in Gothic Revival architecture. Recommended.

    On our visit to Killarney National Park we started with Muckross House and Farms. We bought the combo ticket, and toured the house and gardens first, which were in a pretty setting and good example of a manor house. We then walked to the farm which offered a good representation of the various workings of an Irish farm and the people needed to keep it running. There was a steep walk to the first building, so we took the shuttle, which was easy to access. We enjoyed the animal exhibits, and the staff explaining butter and bread baking were interesting. Ample parking and a gift shop with light food available.

    Took the boat ride over from Ross Castle, which was a great activity in and of itself. The island is so quiet and peaceful. I loved being there. There are trails around the perimeter that we explored a little bit, but didn't want to wander too far and miss our boat back. The ruins themselves are interesting to look at and my daughters had fun walking through and climbing around them. It was especially nice that it was not crowded - we were there with literally one other family of 4, so you really have an intimate experience to explore and reflect.

    We walked by this little church and went inside. Just off the hustle and bustle of the busy street, it offered a peaceful retreat. The inside was tidy and comfortable, the stained glass windows beautiful. It seems to have a long and meaningful history. It’s hard for us Americans to appreciate the centuries old history in Europe, but we understand how important it is.

    We came upon the Franciscan Friary during a self-guided walking tour of Killarney.

    The Franciscan church was opened in 1867, the friary in 1879.

    Our first visit to Killarney saw us stay in apartments overlooking a mural of Monsignor and it encouraged us to do some more research and discover the statue. What a tribute to a wonderful man and cause. It has encouraged me to come home and do some more discovering. What a wonderful example of recognising excellence in mankind to create a statue to this man.

    Graveyards are always fascinating... who was " Joe Bogs who lived so long/ so short a life?"
    So, by their nature evocative and a friendly reminder of our own mortality.
    Aghadoe church and the remains of the round tower " watch over " the final resting place of many of my relatives and a more beautiful final resting place you could not hope for! Quietly in the hills in Aghadoe, overlooking Lough Léin and Ross Island ( with castle) all against he backdrop of " The Reeks" Ireland's tallest mountains, which by international standards , may be small but heir beauty outweighs their size! a wonderful, place of peace. I know I'll probably have the usual limitation of " when did you visit?" ....as if this were place to visit only once, even without my family being interred there!

    As we were parked over at St Mary's Cathedral, we decided to visit Killarney National Park also as it was a fabulous day. We were able to sit in the Park and then also visited the Tea-rooms where we had an ice-cream. All proceeds of the tea-rooms was being donated to Down Syndrome Ireland.
    There was so much space and thankfully not many people. I loved seeing the jaunting cars. A lovely time and space for all the family.
