We took the boat from Ross Castle to Lord Brandons Lodge. The view is amazing and the boat driver was really informative and witty. Great experience!

Gorgeous lake, peaceful and quiet, lovely views of the rolling hills/mountains around. Lots of mosquitos and you'll have to perch on a rock or bring a folding chair if you want to sit and rest for a while. Definitely a must-visit in Killarney.

Fantastic lake and plenty to explore including Ross Castle. We used a boat tour company to go out on the lake. So much to see if you have the time
