Located within the country's oldest national park, Muckross House counts among Europe's foremost Victorian estates. Built in 1843 for artist Henry Arthur Herbert and his wife, the 65-room mansion still contains most of its original furnishings, offering insight into the lifestyle of Victorian nobility. The surrounding gardens, developed in 1861 in anticipation of a visit by Queen Victoria, now contain a modern self-service restaurant and fully restored Victorian glasshouses. Be sure to ask your guide to show you the nearby traditional farms, offering a peek at rural life of the 1930s before electricity swept the countryside.

Very beautiful. The gardens are really taken care of. The flowers are colorful and beautiful during summer. The place and its surroundings is truly quiet and surrounded by nature. Perfect for families with kids and people of all ages. I didn’t take the guided tour because it seemed to me a bit overpriced...
Beautiful place to visit. Could advertise their discount days better as more people would visit. We almost didn't visit one day and then found out it was like half the price when we spoke to the man in the kiosk.
