Muckross House, Farms and Gardens
The visit begins in splendid landscaped grounds, famous for their rhododendrons, azaleas and hydrangeas. The interior of Muckross House, an impressive Victorian manor, will take you back to the 19C, through collections of everyday objects and craftsmen and women who display long-gone arts and crafts. Finally, Muckross Farms on the estate recreate a sort of open-air eco-museum, where authentic rural habitats have been recreated in a dozen or so farmhouses.
