Highly recommend a walk or bike trip through the park. The park is clean, beautiful, historic and offers so much to see by walking, biking or jaunting car. There are many trails. We spent an afternoon walking to Muckross Abbey, Muckross House and Torc Waterfall...More

Breathtaking. Could spend a week walking there but we saw a lot in 3 hours. Weather was not great but still beautiful. Ladies View is spectacular.

We were here in early October and the weather was perfect - we did part of our walk in tee shirts. We stayed in Kenmare, which is much nicer than Killarney. Killarney was very touristy and full of tour buses - even in October. We...More

Amazing even in the rain! Worth the trip even if the weather is miserable. Highly recommend driving the Ring of Kerry through the park.

Worth the visit! We took a jaunting carriage ride into the park. It was a great guided tour as our "driver" was a lot of fun. We stopped at Ross Castle for a brief stop before being driven back to our hotel.

The park was beautiful a nice way to spend a few hours walking around. If you are driving be careful. The roads are narrow and buses have the right of way.

This was at the end of The Ring of Kerry and one of the most beautiful parts. And artist who painted scenes set up sales there and we were able to buy pictures for extremely reasonable prices.

Unfortunately if you don't want tourist trap routes, don't go to Killarney. We were warned that it would be busy with tourists everywhere, and it was. At the end of the day we were tourists too. However, it did not take away... More

The area is still populated ( very sparsely), and the tracks are meant for locals who reside in the area. The tracks are not meant for regular traffic. The tracks would not stand up to more than they currently experience... More

Hi, we didn't walk to Torc I'm afraid, we drove out. It is a distance out of town and we had kids with us which restricted us from walking......but it would be about 1.5 hours walk from Killarney town centre if that helps... More
