An Astonishing Mecca For Tourists
Killarney’s successful link with tourism and its world wide reputation as a destination of outstanding beauty dates back to the mid 1700’s. Since then, visitors have flocked to this vibrant and attractive hub of Kerry and the small village has blossomed into the thriving town of Killarney as we now know it.
With the MacGillicuddy Reeks mountain range as a backdrop and the beautiful lakes at the core, Killarney truly is a dream visitor destination. Named as "Ireland's Best Day Out", in June 2015 by The Irish Times, the 25,000 acres of National Park awaits you, to explore by foot, bicycle, horse back, jaunting car or kayak. Hundreds of quaint shops to browse through, world class theatre entertainment, championship golf courses, an endless choice of pubs and restaurants and a bustling nightlife all contribute to the excitement and uniqueness that is Killarney.
Killarney town and its surrounding region is home to Muckross House and Gardens, Muckross Abbey, Ross Castle, St. Mary’s Cathedral, Torc Waterfall, the Gap of Dunloe, Killarney Golf and Fishing Club, and is the key gateway to the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way. Our valued guests can access all of this from the door step at one of the finest 5 Star hotels Killarney has to offer.
