A Garden Visit To Muckross.

 We went to Muckross in Killarney on Sunday  morning.  Muckross House, Gardens and Estate are in Killarney.  Car parking and the estate and gardens are free for everyone to enjoy.  

Queen Victoria once stayed in the big house and it is said she put tourism on the map in the Southwest of Ireland.  It's another place we never tire of visiting for it's beauty and spectacular gardens and scenery:





I met an English sounding lady sat reading a book overlooking the glasshouse and we talked about where the walled productive kitchen gardens would have once been.  Then she told us about a spectacular walk to see the Rhododendrons in all their glory.  A lovely lady, day and gardens and a good time had by all!

  1. Nice set of pictures but they leave the impression that no one else was there! "A Grand Day Out!" as Wallace might have said.

    1. You're on the ball YP. It was about 9.30 on a Sunday morning when the photos were taken. Muckross is a grand estate and belongs to the people of Ireland. I love big country estates, especially their gardens.

    3. A good description of very nasty creatures Debby. They silently inject our flesh with their poison. The midges are a nuisance sometimes too.

  4. It does look lovely there, and such a glorious sunny day too. You are very fortunate to have that almost on your doorstep.

  5. Thanks JayCee. It was a very hot day and well worth a stop off on the way back to West Cork.
