Killarney City Guide

Killarney is known as the gateway to the county or 'kingdom' of Kerry. The biggest attraction of the town is its beautiful surroundings of green, lush forest, lakes and high mountain peaks. Killarney itself is a popular destination throughout the year, thanks to the 19th-century architecture, narrow cobbled streets and lively pubs. Stroll the cobblestone streets and discover 19th-century architecture and beautiful trails in this Irish town known for its pub culture, hospitality and mystical mountains.

Killarney is situated in the southwest of Ireland and is surrounded by Killarney National Park. The town is the starting point of the famous tourist route, the Ring of Kerry. This 177 kilometre route offers include forests, waterfalls and beautiful, unspoilt coastline.

Explore the narrow streets of Killarney where you will find cafes and craft shops. Visit the 19th century landmarks, such as St Mary's Cathedral and Muckross House. You can explore the town on foot; just make sure you have a pair of comfy shoes.

Killarney has a long tradition of hosting guests and boasts numerous hotels and bed and breakfasts. Strong competition between establishments means you can be assured of high quality service. Visit one of the many venues and check out the local live music, or just join the locals and make the most of the lively nightlife, especially at the weekends. If you're looking for something more sedate, you'd better go on a weekday.

From outrageous St. Patrick's Day celebrations until Christmas festivities: throughout the year there are plenty of events happening all over Killarney. In July and August it gets especially crowded in the town.

Feeling a little outdoorsy? Follow the routes out of town to get to the three lakes of Killarney and the mountain peaks of the national park. Killarney is located on the shores of Lough Leane, so why not rent a boat or hike around the lake and enjoy the beautiful mountain panorama – everything than be reached easily, and cheaply, by foot.
