We visited on a very rainy day so had the place to ourselves. We parked at the Abbey and walked up to the Muckross House from there. I don't know that I'd recommend it for everyone if the weather is bad, but we were prepared...More
The Muckross Abbey inside the Killarney National Park is a historic treasure. We passed it on our Jaunting Car trip and heard the history and the ghost lore about the Abbey. The grave yard holds famous Irish poets

The ruin is setup to be safely explored, and the views from the top are great.

you can walk there from town (about 10 km) or take a cab. Killarney is full of em and they are reasonably priced and helpful. You can also rent bikes or hire a Jarvey (a two wheeled horse-drawn cart) they are also reasonably priced and the drivers are locals who usually drive the carts as a side job. They are informative and stop at all the important places in the park.
