Muckross House

We visited Muckross House whilst on holiday.


We didn't visit the house itself, but had a nice walk round the grounds:

View across the lake

Mountains in the distance

Rose garden - the scent of roses was wonderful

Arboretum with mountains beyond

Another view of the lake

And another one...


The house itself was originally built for Henry Arthur Herbert and his wife, the water-colourist Mary Balfour Herbert, however it is now in the hands of Killarney National Park.

I've got plenty more to tell about my holiday - think of it as an extended version of the "what I did on my holidays" essay we all did at the beginning of each school year :-)
