Discover for yourself the magic of Muckross with something to appeal to everyone of all ages.

The world renowned 19th century Victorian mansion is situated amidst the spectacular scenery of Killarney National Park. The house stands close to the shores of Muckross Lake, one of Killarney’s three lakes.

Meet the bean a tí’s (women of the house) and watch the farmers as they work in the fields. Children will just love the farm petting area, playground, picnic area and bouncy cottage! Visitor can also enjoy a free trip on the Muckross coach.

Enjoy casual dining in the Garden Restaurant, conservatory and garden terrace with breath taking views of Torc Mountain and Killarney’s famous National Park.
