Walking & Cycling

For the active, walking and cycling are the best ways to see the National Park. There is a network of surfaced tracks in the Muckross, Knockreer and Ross Island areas of the park which are ideal for both cyclists and walkers.

Bicycles can be rented in and around Killarney Town .  We can have it arranged to have your bikes delivered to the 19th Green the evening before and you can take off from here on your tour.  We can also provide you with a packed lunch if required

If you bring your own bike we have a secure bike parking area for your bike.

There are numerous low-level walks as well as some marked circular routes and some nature trails in the Muckross area. In addition there is a mining trail in Ross Island . All routes provide the you with wonderful views of Killarney’s spectacular scenery. Maps and booklets are available at reception.

One of our favorite trips is cycling or walking the Gap of Dunloe put your bike on a boat and take a 13 mile boat Journey back to Ross Castle.
