Killarney has about 50 pubs offering all types of entertainment so its easy to find a place to suit your tastes and mingle easily with the ‘locals’. It’s no wonder that this little town in the south-west of Ireland is one of the top destinations in the country!
The town lies adjacent to the boundary of the National Park on its north-eastern edge. The spectacular scenery of the area, particularly the lakes, has been the basis of Killarney’s tourism industry for at least 200 years.
Other popular attractions in the area include Muckross House, a magnificent Victorian mansion and gardens set beneath the impressive backdrop of Torc and Mangerton Mountains.
The prime attraction for sightseeing is the world renowned Ring of Kerry, with Killarney regarded as the ideal starting point. The Ring is a 179-km-long circular tourist route that is best travelled clockwise from Killarney.
