about a 15 min drive from house. dont really recommend the waterboats unless with small children. definately recommend a boat or kayak trip from here. lovely walks to the old copper mines from ross castle, bicycle friendly.

Ross Castle is another treasure within the Killarney National Park. It dates from the 15century and sits by the edge of the lower lake - Lough Leane.-on Ross Island. Not far from town. You can take a guided tour of the part of the interior that has been recently restored, or can simply visit the grounds. If you fancy a walk you can follow one of the trails on the island. The Copper Mines trail – a peaceful 2km looped trail on paved paths. Mining activity in the area dates back over 4,500 years with activities ceasing in the mid 19th Century. Boat trips, the waterbus and kayaking are available from the shore of the lake here. -Killarney Lake Tours for a cruise/ waterbus and/ or a jaunting car trip.+353 (0)6466 32638 www.Killarneylaketours.ie -Outdoor Ireland www.outdoorireland.com

Take a nice early walk or jog to Ross Castle which perches in an inlet of Lough Leane. It is likely that the Irish chieftain O’Donoghue Mór built it in the fifteenth century. Legend has it that O’Donoghue still slumbers under the waters of the lake. Every seven years, on the first morning of May, he rises on his magnificent white horse. If you manage to catch a glimpse of him you will enjoy good fortune for the rest of your life.
