Muckross Estate is something you must see if you are in Killarney, although it is out of the city, some 2-3 miles from the city center. Take a tour in the house and then walk in the gardens, they are wonderful.
The rhododendrons make the gardens especially beautiful in May, when they are blooming.
There are also some farms that you can visit, if you like animals, especially horses, your place is there.
They also have a great restaurant and a giftshop, which is not cheap, but there are some beautiful things made by local craftsmen, which worth some investment. :)
