A relatively new service in Killarney, Killarney Shuttle Bus operate all the major attractions in Killarney including Muckross House & Gardens, Muckross Abbey, Torc Waterfall, Ross Castle, The Gap of Dunloe and more, and are very easily accessible departing from Killarney Town Centre.
This service is particularly useful when going on a tour of Muckross House or Ross Castle as the bus will arrive back in plenty of time to collect you and bring you back to town. It is also great for the Gap of Dunloe Tour as you don’t have to worry about taking two cars; you can park your car at Ross Castle to depart by boat through the Lakes to reach Lord Brandon’s Cottage, from there you can make the ascent to the top of the Gap and down the other side to the base at Kate Kearney’s, the Shuttle Bus will pick you up here and drop you back to your car at Ross Castle.
Killarney Shuttle Bus operates 7 days a week and children under 12 go free when accompanied by an adult.
