Discover Killarney, a vibrant town on the fringes of its namesake national park surrounded by heather-clad highlands in southwestern Ireland. Whether it’s hiking the woodland tracks to the country’s highest mountain Carrauntoohil, plunging into hidden waterfall pools, or kayaking on one of the three pristine lakes, Killarney is a delight for outdoor enthusiasts. Killarney’s location also provides an ideal base to explore the trails of Kerry Way and the scenic Ring of Kerry route nearby. Another popular experience is to cycle through the Gap of Dunloe, a low mountain pass while soaking in the panoramic mountain vistas around. Expect to spot herds of native red deer while hopping between the town’s historical attractions on local jaunting-car rides. Witness traditional Irish farming lifestyle at the stately Muckross House and Farms, and admire the 15th century Ross Castle overlooking Lough Leane. Killarney’s world-class spas let you unwind with a view after golfing, horse racing, and fly fishing sessions.
