    MUCKROSS PARK GARDENS

    by zuriga Updated Mar 13, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These gardens had extraordinary, high rhododenrons in bloom as you can see in this photo. I was amazed at the luxurious nature of these gardens and the beautiful colors which were everywhere.

    Blarney Castle

    by arkryger Written Feb 9, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The next morning we cross over into County Cork, stopping at Blarney Castle for a chance to kiss the Blarney Stone and acquire the gift of gab. It rained off and on, but Erin and I made it to the top-and she kissed it!

  • Gap of Dunloe/Ladies view

    by carolineos Updated Aug 24, 2004

    If you can hire a car or a bike, you should tkae a trip through the Gap of Dunlow, stopping to enjoy the view of the Tomies and Purple mountains on the left and the McGillycuddy Reeks in the right from Ladies view. You can also walk it or get a jaunting cart.

    Atlantic Ocean

    by bluesmama Written May 21, 2004

    The tour took us all the way out to the Atlantic Ocean. I have a thing for the sea. Maybe it is because I'm from Denmark surrounded by the sea everywhere. But there's something so soothing about the sound of the sea and the gulls and the smell of the salty air. It feels like home...

    Kerry Peninsula

    by bluesmama Written May 21, 2004

    The bus tour also took us round the Kerry Peninsula. Saw lots of typical 'country Ireland' with many stone walls. I think the tour is called "the ring of Kerry" Not sure though... (Once again; too long ago)

    Ladies View Macgillycuddy Reeks

    by bluesmama Written May 21, 2004

    Since I can't drive I once again jumped on a bus. This time around Killarney, Dingle and Kerry. Driving back to Killarney we came to this place called Ladies View. Why it is called this I don't know, but I must say it is one of the prettiest places I've seen. The lakes are the Lakes of Killarney.

    Gap of Dunloe

    by healy_ger Written Dec 9, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The gap of Dunloe is well worth a visit. The road runs from Kate Kearneys cottage through to the black valley. On of the trips available includes a bus from the town to Kates, followed by jaunting cart through the gap of Dunloe to Lord Brandons cottage followed by a boat trip through all the lakes back to Ross castle in Killarney. A lot of people walk up the gap, especially at the weekend. A nice pint of Guiness is always waiting for you in Kates!

    Carrantouhill - Irelands highest mountain

    by healy_ger Written Dec 9, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Standing at 1034M (3414 Ft) Carrantouhill is Irelands highest mountain. There is a stunnig view of the surrounding landscape, you can see for miles & miles. It's about a 4 hour hike, be prepared for adverse weather conditions. Unfortunately, when I took the picture below the clouds began to move in. It gets very dangerous if you are not careful!

    Tacky Souvenirs shops

    by littlebush Updated May 28, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well, if youve made it to Killarney then youre either heading to The Ring of Kerry or coming back from it. See my Tralee page for details on the ring of Kerry. Killarney itself hasnt any major must see's. Its full of tourists and therefore full of tacky shops! but theres plenty of pubs to keep you amused! Killarney national park a few miles away has great scenery around the Muckross lakes.

    You can take a jaunty ride through the Gap of Dunloe. No cars are permitted there in summer (though our B&B host took us through when he visited a friend who lives back there!) It is an awesome valley. You won't forget its beauty!

    St mary's Church of Ireland

    by stevemt Written Jun 25, 2014

    A church in the middle of Killarney, that has some very very nice painted - not stain glassed, windows from the mid 1800's

    The windows are worth a visit alone, they are really nice.

    This ancient mountain range is the highest in Ireland. The scenery is ever changing with the weather's moods. The colours can range from bright greens to booding blues & purples.

    This is a famous viewing point on the road to Kenmare/Sneem. You can see the run of the upper lake as it meanders down through the meeting of the waters to Dinis cottage.

    Ross Castle

    Another castle/ruin that will evoke a Celtic atmosphere, not in the least due to its beautiful surroundings.
