Relive the past with a guided tour of Muckross House, a magnificent Victorian Mansion where the elegantly furnished rooms portray the lifestyles of the landed gentry. See the National Park and the Lakes of Killarney by traditional jaunting car from here. Nearby witness the lifestyles and farming traditions of a rural working community in the 1930s carrying out their daily tasks.
Within Killarney National Park, there are Bronze Age copper mines, the monastic site of Innisfallen, the fifteenth century tower house known as Ross Castle, the Franciscan Friary of Muckross Abbey of the same period, estate mansions and picturesque cottages.
Situated in south-west Ireland, close to the most westerly point in Europe, the National Park includes over 10,000 hectares of mountain, woodland, waterways, parks and gardens.
Muckross House is one of Ireland's most popular visitor attractions. This magnificent Victorian Mansion was built in 1843 and forms the centrepiece of the equally renowned Killarney National Park. The elegantly furnished family rooms in the upper floors and the spartan service quarters in the basement clearly depict the 'upstairs-downstairs' divide of that era.
