Rosie's Beach

Killarney County Kerry IE


To get to this little secluded beach you can only cycle, or walk (as this road does not allow cars) the closest parking lot would be Muckross House about 2km away (Please note if you taking this route and plan to park the Muckross House closes in the evening at 8pm on the dot!) .  Continuing on you will leave Muckross House behind you, follow signs for 'Dinis Cottage' and 'The Meetings of the Waters' after a few 100 metres take a left turn to go along the peninsula.

There will be a section on the trail that opens up on your right hand side this is Doo Lough which may be seen over the tall grass! As  you continue on this trail next you will need to look out for a sign of a path (on your left hand side) this will be a path off the beaten track as you'll need to trek through the grass. You will then arrive to a viewing point with a bench once you have picked up the trail follow this woodland path and the lake and shore will starto become more visible! 

 We kindly ask you to only leave your footprints along these trails! We take pride in our National Park and want to keep it free from litter! Please help us by following a principle of leave no trace as you stay in Killarney.
