Very easy walk along the lake

One of the easiest walk in the Killarney National Park. Nevertheless we can have great view of the lake before tackling more interesting hikes.

One is in a different world as one casually wander though the woodland. The Hugh trees must be very old judging by their size and thickness.

The Old Boathouse Trail is a walk we always take when in Killarney (and we've done it many times). On a quiet day, it is lovely to amble down to the boathouse and spend time enjoying the beauty of the lake and the sound of the birds. If it has been raining heavily, its lovely to wade through the water... More

This is a very gentle walk through Muckross Gardens to down by the lake. Some beautiful scenery and the boathouse itself is lovely. It can get flooded in winter after heavy rains but it is very peaceful. I love it.

The kids just love following the trail of numbers. Make sure to get the guide that goes along with the walk. The beach at the end of this walk is so beautiful.
