Mangerton Mountain just skirts the Killarney national park and is an area where it would be quite common to find Ireland’s native red deer. This day trip starts at 9.30, will give you breathtaking views and take your breath away literally. The views from the track leading to the Devils Punchbowl looking over to the MacGillycuddy Reeks and below to Lough Leane and over Killarney are unsurpassed. We take the main track or the Horses Glen depending on conditions. Min 3 people, needs to be pre-booked well in advance and is weather dependent..
