Whilst staying at Ballygarry House Hotel and Spa take the short drive to Killarney. Lose yourself in the 25 thousand acres of Killarney National Park and Muckross Estate with its many walking trails. Killarney National Park comprises of the Lakes of Killarney as well as the surrounding woodlands and mountains, McGillycuddy Reeks being the highest mountain range in Ireland.
The most familiar part of the National Park is Muckross House dating back to 1843, a former private residence where you can view the children’s toys, the famous Killarney furniture of the library and drawing room and the famous specially prepared bedroom where Queen Victoria slept during her visit in 1861. The house and gardens were bequeathed by the Bourne Vincent family in 1932 to become the first national park in Ireland.
