Ross Castle is a medieval tower in Killarney National Park. St Mary’s Cathedral, an enormous structure near the town centre, was consecrated in 1855. Torc Waterfall is near the roadside in the National Park. Many pleasant lakeside walks also lead from here. A beautiful but quite precarious road leads through the Gap of Dunloe. The road is popular with walkers and cyclists, and can also be enjoyed on a jaunting cars which set out from a carpark below the gap. The Gap of Dunloe is also a spectacular drive, but should only be attempted during the early morning or late evening, when there is less traffic on this tiny, narrow road. Muckross House and Farms, on the shores of Muckross Lake in the National Park, is a popular place to pass a few hours. On the Muckross Road, take a left at Molly Darcy’s pub to get to the Blue Pool Nature Reserve, where pleasant walks can be enjoyed.
