The Lakes Of Killarney

 The three lakes and the mountains that surround them are all within the Killarney National Park. The Lower Lake is nearest the town, it is studded with islands and has Muckross Abbey and Ross Castle on its eastern shore. The Lower Lake is separated from the Middle Lake by the wooded peninsula of Muckross. At the tip of the Muckross Peninsula is the quaint Brickeen Bridge. Dinis Island is further on with its sub-tropical vegetation and views of the 'Meeting of the Waters'. A narrow straight called the Long Range leads to the island studded Upper Lake, which is surrounded by lush vegetation.
