Beautiful lake with Ross Castle right on the shores. We were visiting Ross Castle and it was later in the evening. It was a sunny day and the sun was setting over the lake. We got some great pictures and it was very peaceful.

All of Ireland is beautiful. The whole island is like a continuous garden full of welcoming people. The scenery every way you turn is spectacular. The castle and grounds were spectacular and the lake was pristine.
Loch Leane is the largest of the 3 lakes in Killarney National Park and is surrounded by Macgillycuddy's Reeks, a tranquil and expansive view topped by purple headed mountains.
We entered this area by Jaunting Car (pony and trap) from the town centre.
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.
