Tour the lakes of killarney

After all the hustle and bustle of the Summer in Killarney, there is no better time to get a guided Tour of the magnificent Lakes of Killarney. Soak in the history and the views as you cruise around the lakes and on certain tours up the Gap of Dunloe. See sights such as Dinis Cottage, Inisfallen Island, Muckross House, O’ Sullivans Cascade, Meeting of the Waters and Lord Brandons Cottage, the scenery you will explore is a truly memorable experience. With the Autumn Sky and Killarneys Jaw-Dropping scenery a Tour of the Lakes is a must this Autumn.

Destination Killarney - Muckross House frontal view

visit muckross house

Muckross House & Gardens are one of Killarney’s most well known landmarks. In the Autumn as the leaves turn their gorgeous golden and red hues it’s like walking through a fairy tale. You can pay to go inside this Victorian style mansion or just be content to admire it from outside and explore the world famous gardens. Autumn is the ideal season to visit Muckross as it is considerably more quiet than the heaving Summer months but the beauty of Muckross is still there to be seen in all it’s glory.
