A day in Killarney

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone, and thank you all again for your itinerary advice back in January for our trip in July. We've decided to forgo Skellig Michael (seasickness, heights) and spend a day exploring Killarney National Park/the Gap of Dunloe, which will also give our driver (my husband) a day off. We're staying at Friar's Glen, near Muckross, for two nights.

I'm wondering how to organize that day, as there seem to be all sorts of options for tours, etc. There are four of us, my husband and I and our two children, son age 15 and daughter age 11. We like to hike (two of us like to bike, too), and I can't see us sitting in a jaunting car for too long unless it is moving at a reasonable clip. We'd also like to visit Ross Castle (some of the tours don't seem to leave time for this) and perhaps Innisfallen Island as well--I think I read about a rowboat rental option? My daughter would probably love the farm at Muckross House, too (we're doing a hawk walk with Killarney Falconry the next morning, before making our way to County Clare).

Any advice for us? Thanks in advance! Anamaria.
