The 25,000 acre Killarney National Park , adjacent to The Killarney Park Hotel, is an ideal area to explore by horseback. Horse riding treks can be arranged for all levels of riders, from those trying it out for the very first time to the more experienced equine enthusiasts. For guests wanting to experience the beauty of the Killarney National Park with horses but not quite up to riding, there is the option of taking a trip through the park on one of the colourful horse drawn jaunting cars.
Killarney is also a playground for those involved in the racing scene. The Killarney Races provide eight cracking days of racing, set to a backdrop of feverish, non-stop, summertime holiday activity. May, July and August are racing festival months and Killarney Race Course is only a mile from The Killarney Park Hotel . The racecourse provides high quality racing to fulfil the dual role of both family fun day out and a satisfying punter-friendly competition – not to mention the exquisite style and fashion adorned by those vying for the coveted Ladies Day “Best Dressed” title. After a long day at the races relax in comfort and style in one of the finest hotels Kerry has to offer.
