Lakeside near Muckross House from where a horse-drawn jaunting car can be hired to take you.
If in the summer, take some insect repellant - the midges are fierce!

According to Leifchild (1855), the Muckross mine was worked with great profit in the 1749-1754 period, but difficulties arose with the European war and it was abandoned. He noted "At the period of their being worked, there was found in great profusion a mineral of a granulated metallic appearance, as hard as stone. Its colour on the surface was dark blue, tending to beautiful pink. As it certainly was not copper ore, and possessed no apparent value, it was rejected as cumbersome rubbish. One man alone, and he a workman, had a suspicion of its worth, and he contrived to get away upwards of twenty tons of this rejected rubbish. It was not long afterwards that it became known to the proprietor of this mine, that this rejected material was an ore of cobalt, a mineral of great value, from which beautiful blue glass and smalt-blue are made."
