For the active, walking and cycling are the best ways to see Killarney National Park, with bicycle rental available in several spots.
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 visitor with wonderful views of Killarney's spectacular scenery.
If you've got over energetic 10s along, definitely try the magical Gap of Dunloe trip. This involves a boat trip from Ross Castle through the Lower and Middle lakes into the upper lake to Lord Brandon's Cottage. (Boat operators will take bikes on the trip) From here you can either, walk, cycle or take a pony and trap through the 12 kilometres to the Gap of Dunloe to Kate Kearney's Cottage. Alternatively you can walk along the Mass Path and up on to the Old Kenmare Road which will bring you back to Muckross and Killarney. This is very much a trip for seasoned walkers. The trip is also done in reverse with coach transport to Kate Kearney's Cottage, pony and trap through the Gap of Dunloe and boat through the lakes to Ross Castle with coach back to Killarney Town .
