Viewpoint at Governor's Rock
Governor's Rock, on Ross Island, is particularly prominent when viewed from a boat on the lough. On land, its fenced-in viewing point provides spectacular panoramic views across Lough Leane to the McGillycuddy Reeks to the west and towards Muckross Lake via Brickeen Bridge to the south.
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.
