What people say

"I’m sure it’s no surprise that the Muckross House is located on Muckross Road–who would have thought? The Muckross House is a Victorian Mansion that was built in 1843 for Henry Arthur Herbert & his wife. With sixty-five rooms, it’s surprising that the tour only takes about 30 to 45 minutes."
"The historic house and gardens are a cool and impressive tour. There is also a farm that I highly recommend visiting. It offers a glimpse into the lives of the Irish in the 1930's-1940's. Don't forget to stop by the "petting zoo" to see the animals they raise on the farm!"
"Muckross House was built in 1843 by Henry Arthur Herbert and his wife, Mary. It was designed by Scottish architect, William Burn, and is a stunning example of the Tudor style."
