Muckross House. Queen Victoria stayed here for two nights. She had a wing to herself and put Killarney firmly on the tourist map.. it's the most popular destination in Ireland.
Jaunting carts, you have to pay for the privilege of riding in one but the carparks and walks and grounds are free for everyone to use.
You can pay for a guided tour round the house. We did last year. It's very Upstairs and Downstairs/ Downton Abbey.
