Visit the famous Muckross House and gardens, the nineteenth century Victorian mansion. Muckross House was built for Henry Arthur Herbert and his wife, the water-colourist Mary Balfour Herbert. This was actually the fourth house that successive generations of the Herbert family had occupied at Muckross over a period of almost two hundred years. William Burn, the well-known Scottish architect, was responsible for its design. Building commenced in 1839 and was completed in 1843.

    “The spa at Aghadoe Heights Hotel & Spa (listed above) is awesome. Go there on a rainy day and warm up in their thermal spa - they've got multiple steam baths, saunas, showers and heated lounge chairs. It's around 20- 25 Euro for a day pass and worth it. If you book a treatment you can use the spa all day.”
