  • This was one of the top places of our visit to Ireland. We got to see a waterfall, take a carriage ride, see Muckross House, hiked around, and we got to meet a bunch of wonderful people enjoying the outdoors with us. This was a great location and great for people of all ages! It's so much fun to go explore and you can make it as cheap or expensive as you want too. It was free to go in, but you could pay for the carriage rides (worth it!) and could pay for the treats they had for sale around the park.
  • A walk at the national park could be liberating to one's thoughts. It involves a lot of walking so make sure you have the entire day to admire its sprawling beauty. Highlights would include the ross castle, the governor's rock, the library point and the mining trail. Take some time to sit down by the lake side and just contemplate. Observe nature take its course and observe the interaction of other visitors. Nothing is more real than that kind of experience. Make sure to bring your camera and snap lots of pictures.
  • This is a mandatory place for anyone who can get here. I suggest a bicycle or car. Bring your camera! I wish I had more time to spend here. Such a tranquil place. You can also hire a horsie ride from the town and that's a pretty good trip.
  • This is one of the top spots in the entire country to visit. Beautiful scenery, stunning views, lakes, trees, nature... Great for relaxing, walking, cycling; for singles or families - this place cannot be missed. Whether you live in Ireland or coming from abroad - this spot should be #1 on your visit list. Cannot recommend enough.
  • Beautiful park. Park your car at the muckross house and walk around the place. Don't miss the other scenic spots around
