We explored the abbey both at night and in the day light. What a fantastic place. Great first day in Ireland. Climb around, get lost in it.

We enjoyed our time at the Muckross Abbey. We parked at the small parking area and chose to walk to the abbey rather than take the carriage ride. The walk is easy and pleasant although I feel the horse and carriage owners need to do...More

Guided tour was interesting. Had real access to the house unlike some tours where everything is cordoned off. Enjoyable experience and worth doing for all ages

We didn't do the tour, but enjoyed a brief stop for the views and a nice little walk. Trails for families and would have spent more time here if we could have!

Short walk from the parking area. This was a really cool place to visit and walk around and stretch the legs. There was no charge for parking and no charge to walk around. We spend about a hour total here. I recommend this if you...More

It is a ruin, that has been stabilized and even roofed in areas. One feels like an archeologist (ala Indiana Jones) when wandering these grounds. The Ewe tree in the center is beautiful. If in Killarney you do yourself a disservice not stopping to look...More

One can imagine a band of monks in the abbey hundreds of years ago living their lives of faith in this intricately designed abby near a large lake. Much of this abbey is still in great condition and you can explore the main level and...More
