Beautiful grounds, gift shop, eatery. No fee, good parking, who needs more? We were there on a beautiful day and lots of families we're enjoying the grounds. Wish I could have spent more time in the gift shop, it was very good.

Was lucky to go there on a sunny day. We walked through Killarney National Park all the way up to Muckross house. The scenery is absolutely amazing, with a great view of the lake. Could spend hours there, very relaxing..
