The focal point of the National Park and a major tourist attraction in the area is Muckross House, gardens and farms. Dating from 1843 it is a former private residence where you can view the children’s toys, the famous Killarney furniture of the library & drawing room & the famous specially prepared bedroom where Queen Victoria slept during her visit in 1861.
At Muckross Traditional Farms you will find yourself walking down memory lane, to a time before the advent of electricity when all work was carried out using traditional methods. Meet and chat with the farmers and their wives as they go about their daily work in the houses, on the land, and with the animals. Visitors can also enjoy a complimentary trip aboard the Muckross Vintage Coach which circulates the farm or the tour is also very easy to walk.
Access to Muckross National Park with Muckross House and Traditional Farms are only minutes from our holiday homes. You can enter the park on foot by crossing the road and following the forest path into Muckross and enjoy the beautiful walk by the lakes and gardens to Muckross House. If you don’t feel like walking or its raining, you can go by car and be there in 3 minutes.
