Muckross House Gardens & Traditional Farms

The National Park Dromyrourk Killarney


In the centre of the National Park Muckross House looks out onto Muckross Lake. The house was built from 1839 to 1843 and further renovations were carried out in the 1850’s for Queen Victoria’s visit. The Herbert family sold Muckross house in 1899 to Lord Ardilaun of the Guinness family who in turn sold it on to the Bowers Bourn family of California in 1910. The last owners of the house Maud and her husband Arthur Vincent received the house as a wedding present (Not a bad present eh?).
