Start and Finish
Established in 1932 to protect one of Ireland’s most precious natural habitats, Killarney National Park boasts wild, rugged summits of the country’s highest mountains, beautiful sylvan landscapes of ancient woodland, a spectacular waterfall and serenely quiet lakes. Just 5km south of Killarney Town on the famous Ring of Kerry, the Muckross Lake Loop has an optional trip to the Torc Waterfall Loop, but both see you starting and finishing at the delightful Muckross House and visits to the beautiful formal gardens and historic buildings of the Muckross Demesne.
