Search for this box in Killarney's National Park, north of Lough Leane (one of the three lakes of Killarney) in Ballydowney, in a peaceful spot, with a stunning great view of the lakes and mountains, you might even pass a Native Red Irish Deer or a Sika deer in your travels.
The park is a really beautiful place for hiking, walking and bicycling, as well as boat trips and horse riding !

Get yourself to O'Sullivans, 'Killarney Riding Stables', ( see www.horsevacationireland.com) 1 miles west of Killarney Town on N72 'Ring of Kerry' Road to Killorglin (the next town).
Its a large red brick building located on your right hand side. You may park here to find the "Killarney/Wolfmoon Letterbox".
Get a map/pamphlet from the stables and follow their route into the National Park, along their horse trails. When in the initial woodland of Bellview woods, you will see a green hill ahead, with a golf course on your rignt hand side. Walk all the ways to the top to where you will reach a gate, on either side of the gateway there are big old trees, one on the left and two on the right. the oldest tree on the right hold the "Killarney/Wolfmoon Letterbox". Look for a hollow near the base, on the north side (When facing the lake it is on the back side of the tree! ) you will see three rocks placed across the hollow and inside you will find the prize! (You can always do this on Horseback, the 1 hour Trail will take you right by it.)
