Killarney and Muckross

On Easter Sunday, we explored Killarney before heading on our way to Cork.  Our first and major stop was Killarney National Park.  We planned on walking around and checking out the Muckross Estate but first we came upon the Muckross Abbey.

After enjoying the abbey, we explored the grounds and lake before walking over to the Muckross Estate.  While we didn’t go in and explore, we did enjoy the gift shop where I found the most wonderful wool hat and scarf (which I desperately needed after leaving my scarf at the hotel).

On our way out of the park, we stopped to explore Torc Waterfall.IMG_5367

After leaving the park, we headed to County Cork.  With the weather turning more traditionally Irish (i.e. rainy) we spent the afternoon in our hotel, enjoying afternoon tea and naps.  It was a great day Smile
