Ross Castle
Ross Castle
Ross Castle (Irish: Caisleán an Rois) is a 15th-century tower house and keep on the edge of Lough Leane. It was built in the late 15th century by local ruling clan the O'Donoghues. The castle is typical of strongholds of Irish chieftains built during the Middle Ages.
Killarney National Park :: V9384

Killarney National Park (Irish: Páirc Náisiúnta Chill Airne), near the town of Killarney, County Kerry, was the first national park in Ireland, created when Muckross Estate was donated to the Irish Free State in 1932.

The park has since been substantially expanded and now encompasses more than 25000 acres of diverse ecology, including the Lakes of Killarney, oak and yew woodlands of international importance, and mountain peaks. It has the only red deer herd on mainland Ireland and the most extensive covering of native forest remaining in Ireland.
