People have been escaping to Killarney for over 250 years. They come for the legendary beauty: the lakes, waterfalls, mountain peaks and spectacular views. And they come for the craic agus ceol: the good times and the banter, the pubs, live music, and easy Irish charm.
Queen Victoria visited and fell in love with it. Poets and songwriters have waxed lyrical about it. It’s known as “the home of the traditional Irish welcome” because this is where Irish tourism began.
When staying in Killarney there are many great hotels, B&B’s and guesthouses to choose from. And no matter where you’ll be in Killarney, the National Park is on your doorstep! Here you’ll find Ireland’s highest mountains that ring three gorgeous glacial lakes. Ireland’s only herd of native red deer roam wild here in ancient woods of oak and yew. Rare white-tailed sea eagles drift overhead.
The Killarney National Park offers easy strolls and challenging hikes. The boat trip across the three lakes is a magical experience. Great places to visit are Muckross House, Ross Castle and Muckross Abbey.
Not to be missed are our private day tours of the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, and Beara Peninsula. You will discover the very best the area has to offer!
