Muckross House

Ashford Chairs

 

Unmissable if you venture near Kerry or Killarney.

 

Winter or summer.

 

Outdoors and on your bike or in your carriage along lakeshore path or through the estate and its mature exotically planted gardens, backdrop to many a wedding photo.

 

Inside, exploring this beautifully restored Victorian mansion. A scaled down experience of the palace at Versailles without much of the gold leaf and extravagance but without the huge crowds and queues.

 

Located just outside Killarney, along the Kenmare road, all within the  beautiful  Killarney National Park.

 

From the upstairs elegance creature comforts of the gentry to the household kitchens, dairy and craftsmens’s workshops, you can happily while away a pleasant afternoon exploring another world. And at certain times of the year you can watch some of these skilled people weaving, making pottery and bookbinding.

 

And you will be spoiled for choice for luxury 5 star hotels to stay nearby including
