Ireland Panoramic Photo

So this is how tourists go sightseeing in Killarney. You get in the horse drawn carts and take a quick ride through some traffic to get to the park. It eventually leads to Muckross House, where the property is much like a park in itself.

There is a guided tour of the huge house and what you see is in pretty good shape. It takes a while to go through several floors and see the whole thing. The photo in the upper-right corner shows the "Queen's Fire Escape". Whatever queen it was, was terrified of fire and they built her a fire escape before she visited. P.S. All the preparations for the queen's visit helped to ruin the owner's financially. At least you can tour now and take pictures there (but not inside).

These photos were taken in 2004.
