The ancient Kingdom of Kerry lies on the very edge of Europe - once believed to be the edge of the world. This far-flung place is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Lively towns with a strong traditional culture combine with some of the world's most beautiful coastline scenery in this unique place.
People flock to Killarney to experience first-hand the legendary beauty of its lakes, waterfalls, mountain peaks and breathtaking views. Relax in the evenings and taste “craic agus ceol,” the good times, the banter, the pubs with live music, and the Irish charm.
The town is on the north-east shore of the largest of the three Lakes of Killarney: Lough Leane, or Lake of Learning , where the medieval monks of Inisfallen recorded the earliest history of Ireland. Killarney offers a variety of experiences - both easy strolls and challenging hikes, trips and tours, bike hires and boat rides. Traditional horse-drawn jaunting cars with their drivers known as “jarveys” wait in the centre of town to take visitors to the National Park.
Killarney is a great base for exploring South West Ireland’s three wild Atlantic peninsulas, Dingle, Beara and Iveragh, as well as the world-famous Ring of Kerry.Read More
