  • Recommended in any case. We're through by car. It was a mega experience. The roads are just relatively narrow, retaining nerves and driving slowly. But the absolute hammer and one must!!!! in Killarney

  • Wonderful hikes around the Muckross Lake, the Governor's rock and especially TORC mountain from where you enjoy a great panorama.
