Killarney National Park lies at the foot of Macgillycuddy’s Reeks, Ireland’s highest mountain range, and home to Ireland’s highest peak, Carrauntoohil, which dominates the skyline at 1,038 metres. This mountain range has made Killarney a popular holiday destination for walking and hiking enthusiasts, with the town also being the start and end of the 200km+ Kerry Way Walk.
