The Muckross House and Gardens are a beautiful part of the Irish countryside. The weather was perfect for a Fall visit with a sunny day and the grounds were green and lush. The history of the Muckross House is preserved here.

We didn't have time to tour the inside of the house, but walking the grounds and gardens was totally enjoyable. The views of the lake and abbey were beautiful. Met many nice locals walking dogs. A step back in time. Queen Victoria visited there.

You will need to provide more information. What hotel are you staying at? Most hotels will arrange horse riding for a small fee. I am unsure about clay pigeon shooting.
