Great place to spend a couple of hours, especially if you are have an interest in Irish history and are familiar with Daniel O Connell. Just off the ring of Kerry, taking a right in Caherdaniel this is worth a detour. Was worried kids would be bored, but they loved the fairy gardens and house tour. Coffee in courtyard on... 更多
Gives a good insight into the life of Daniel O'Connell, staff were very friendly and admission was reasonable. Surrounding views and house made it a very worthwhile trip.
