Ross Castle - Killarney

Ross Castle

Ross Castle Ross Castle Review

Part of the Killarney National park, Ross castle is a recently renovated castle, dating back from the 1600's. Formerly an English garrison, it's on the shore of Lake Laune. Very narrow spiral staircases, so be careful. €3.80 admission fee which includes a very good guided tour. It's quite cold & draughty inside. Check out the "murder hole" and the banquet rooms. Will have photos developed soon.

Address: Ross road, Killarney

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars

Ring of Kerry Ring of Kerry Review

If you look at a map of Ireland and see the 2nd peninsula in the south, the Ring of Kerry is just a road around the peninsula encompassing the main towns in the area like Killarney, Caherciveen, Kenmare. Yes, there is some great scenery in some parts of it, but when the Ring road is heavily laden with tour buses, it does spoil the experience - in my most humble opinion.

Address: Kerry Peninsula

Directions: Pick up bus tours in downtown Killarney

What the coach tours show you Ring of Kerry Review

In these areas, you will come across more American and German bus tours than you can shake a stick at. The coach tours usually take around the scenic Ring of Kerry, Gap of Dunloe (just a valley, I think it's a bit overrated) and Ladies View (cant see the atttaction there myself, its a mountain valley and I've seen better)

Muckross House - Killarney

Muckross House

Muckross House Muckross Abbey Review

Muckross House and gardens are interesting but the house's only claim to fame is that Queen Victoria stayed there for a night or two and the house was completely redecorated before her visit. €5 entry. Here's a photo of the house.

Address: Down the Muckross rd
