  • There is green. And then there is Killarney green. So much beautiful nature. Loved our time here - just wish we had more time. We will return one day and explore it more thoroughly. Perfect for those who love the outdoors.
  • Great place to go for walks. Nature at its best. Full of trees and foliage. Waterfall was so beautiful. So many trails available to go for walking. Definitely worth a visit at least once.
