Situated in Killarney National Park, Muckross House and Gardens are among the most popular of Irish visitor attractions.

Queen Victoria paid a visit here, to the Herbert family, in 1861. The House was later owned, in turn, by Lord Ardilaun (of the Guinness family) and by the Bourn Vincents. Today, many of the rooms in this magnificent mansion have been restored to their original Victorian splendour.

Between the months of April and July, Muckross Gardens are spectacularly adorned with the red and pink flowers of mature Rhododendrons. Other garden features include a Sunken Garden, a Rock Garden and a Stream Garden. An Arboretum, containing many trees from the Southern Hemisphere, was established here in 1972.

Muckross Traditional Farms are situated adjacent to Muckross House. These working farms recreate and portray the traditional farming methods, and way of life, of a typical local, rural community of the 1930s.

The Walled Garden Centre incorporates the Garden Restaurant, Mucros Craft Shop and the three Mucros Craft Workshops. The Garden Restaurant offers excellent menu choices, while Mucros Craft Shop offers an extensive range of quality giftware. Handcrafted items from Mucros Pottery, Mucros Weaving and Mucros Conservation Bookbinding are also on sale here.
