Biking through Muckross in Killarney

During a weekend trip to Killarney, some of the students on this trip and I took an amazing bike tour through Killarney National Park. During this tour, I was given the chance to explore Muckross Abbey, see the beautiful Torc Waterfall, and take in the amazing views that Killarney have to offer. This was definitely an adventure that I will never forget!

Muckross Abbey

Muckross Abbey, Kerry, Ireland

While in Killarney National Park, I got to walk through Muckross Abbey. Muckross Abbey is both a modern Irish Graveyard, as well as an old Irish Monastery. This site dates back to the very beginning of Christianity forming in Ireland. The pictures shown here portray a glimpse of the ruins of a Franciscan frairy, as well as graveyard that is still in use to this date!

Torc Waterfall

Torc Waterfall, Kerry, Ireland

While on the Killarney National Park tour, the students and I came across the Torc Waterfall. This amazing waterfall is 70-80 feet high, offering amazing opportunities for tourists to get beautiful pictures of the waterfall, and the area surrounding this spot. Bike riding up to the waterfall also provided me with a spectacular view of Killarney National Park. Even though it took climbing up 100 steps to get to see this view, it was most definitely worth it.
