Discover Ireland's true colors at Killarney National Park, prized by nature lovers for its lakes, mountain peaks, and oak and yew woodlands.

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.

Killarney National Park reviews
We loved visiting this park. We enjoyed the trip on the jaunting carts. We visited on a lovely sunny day. Plenty of scenery but quite a walk. Also good for a family day out even a picnic more »
Fabulous on a fabulous day with stunning scenery, deer everywhere. Just jaw dropping. One could spend days in different parts of the park. more »
There is green. And then there is Killarney green. So much beautiful nature. Loved our time here - just wish we had more time. We will return one day and explore it more thoroughly. Perfect for those who love the outdoors.
Great place to go for walks. Nature at its best. Full of trees and foliage. Waterfall was so beautiful. So many trails available to go for walking. Definitely worth a visit at least once.
