Muckross House is Kerry's premier tourist destination. Queen Victoria paid a visit here, to the Herbert family, in 1861. The House was later owned, in turn, by Lord Ardilaun (of the Guinness family) and by the Bourn Vincents.
Muckross House is home to many fine gardens and shrubbery. One such area is the perfectly manicured rose gardens. The Gardens at Muckross House are renowned world-wide for their beauty.

Take some time out and enjoy a traditional Irish Coffee while overlooking the Lakes of Killarney. If you have enough Irish Coffee, Larry the Leprechaun may join you for one.
Ross Castle and outer defences were built by the O'Donoghue Ross Chieftains during the 15th century. The barracks alongside dates from the mid 18th century.
A very popular activity on the lakes of Killarney is to take an open boat be it for a leisurely tour, or it is also known as a mecca for the fishing enthusiasts.
