Muckross House, Killarney, Co. Kerry
Muckross House is one of Killarney's most popular visitor attractions. Completed in 1843 by the Herbert family, it saw extensive works leading up to the 1861 visit of Queen Victoria. In fact, it's believed that the family's later financial insolvency was caused by the massive outlay required to prepare for her visit. It's now owned by the state and forms a principal feature of the Killarney National park. Photographed here on a fine Summer's evening, the architecture of the house can be appreciated against its manicured surroundings.
