Protected as a biosphere reserve of international importance, the park encompasses over 10,000 hectares (25,000 acres) with vast sections available for hiking, cycling, boating, and fishing. The park also contains one of the country's foremost stately homes and gardens, noted for its collection of original furnishings and fully restored Victorian glasshouses.

  • Truly a gorgeous place. Killarney National Park is a fine example of the standards for which national parks worldwide strive to meet. If anything, it exceeds those standards. It is well operated, preserved, interpreted, and maintained. It has breathtaking scenery and a very long, varied, and rich cultural history. It is a jewel in Ireland’s proverbial crown. It is very well worth the visit.
  • One of the most beautiful places on earth to visit... beautiful scenery, always changing with the light and seasons, very friendly and helpful people... been my pleasure to live within an hour of Killarney all my life, never tire of Killarney National park.😃
