Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Munster / County Kerry / Killarney / Killarney National Park
Discover Ireland's true colors at Killarney National Park, prized by nature lovers for its lakes, mountain peaks, and oak and yew woodlands. This national park, the first established in Ireland, shelters the country's only native herd of red deer. Protected as a biosphere reserve of international importance, the park encompasses over 10,000 hectares (25,000 acres) with vast sections available for hiking, cycling, boating, and fishing. The park also contains one of the country's foremost stately homes and gardens, noted for its collection of original furnishings and fully restored Victorian glasshouses. Ask your guide to take you on a horse-drawn ride through the park, or take a boat trip on the three interconnected lakes.

We walked 30-40 minutes from our hotel to Ross Castle! It was a lovely walk! Along the way we saw red deer and lots of birds then the best part was to see the historic Ross Castle!

A beautiful spot with many different types of trails to walk, suitable for people with different types of fitness levels. It has a beautiful Torc waterfall to admire and take photos, hilly trails along with the simple trails around and along the lake. There is a cafe/restaurant at the main entrance and another one just inside the park for some delicious hot/iced beverages and a quick bite. Also, a beautiful historic castle with admissions to explore it closer from the inside.
Without a shadow of a doubt, I can honestly say that I experienced some of the most breathtaking views I’ve ever seen in the Killarney National Park. An absolute must see when visiting the area. Novice drivers might find the narrow roads unnerving, and certain areas can be packed with tourists, however other areas are well isolated and dead silent. We unfortunately didn’t see many animals. Visitors are very respectful as we barely saw any litter. I really want to return here soon!
