Killarney National Park Reviews
The drive through Killarney National Park is a constantly unfolding vista of stunning beauty. Ladies View is spectacular but best enjoyed from a roadside stop about 100 metre further up the road... more »
Make sure that you are not just driving through to "do" the Ring of Kerry. This park deserves at least a full day. more »
Truly a gorgeous place. Killarney National Park is a fine example of the standards for which national parks worldwide strive to meet. If anything, it exceeds those standards. It is well operated, preserved, interpreted, and maintained. It has breathtaking scenery and a very long, varied, and rich cultural history. It is a jewel in Ireland’s proverbial crown. It is very well worth the visit.
One of the most beautiful places on earth to visit... beautiful scenery, always changing with the light and seasons, very friendly and helpful people... been my pleasure to live within an hour of Killarney all my life, never tire of Killarney National park.😃
