The town of Killarney is situated in the south-west of Ireland, on the border of Killarney National Park. Distances from the main cities are as follows:
Dublin: 333km (200 miles); Cork: 83km (50 miles); Galway: 250km (150 miles).
Killarney has direct rail links to Dublin and Cork, while Kerry Regional Airport is situated 5km (9 miles) from the town.
When travelling to Muckross, from Killarney town centre, take the main Kenmare road (N71) for a distance of approximately 6km (3.6 miles). The only vehicle access is via the large entrance gate located on the right, a short distance beyond the Muckross Park Hotel. This provides direct access to both Muckross House and the Reception of Muckross Traditional Farms.
You can also gain access on foot, by bicycle, or by jaunting car, at other entrances along the same road (N71). These entrances, most of which are closer to Killarney town, are signposted.
