Killarney is a vibrant little town surrounded by breathtaking and ever-changing beautiful landscapes.
The three main lakes of Killarney occupy a broad valley stretching south between the mountains. The three lakes and the
mountains that surround them are all within the Killarney National Park. The Lower Lake is nearest to the town, it is studded
with islands and has Muckross Abbey and Ross Castle on its eastern shore.

Muckross House and Gardens
Situated in Killarney National Park, Muckross House and Gardens are among the most
popular of Irish visitor attractions.
Muckross Traditional Farms are situated adjacent to Muckross House. These working
farms recreate and portray the traditional farming methods, and way of life, of a typical
local, rural community of the 1930s.
The Dingle Peninsula
There is no other landscape in western Europe with the density and variety of archaeological monuments as the Dingle Peninsula.
Because of the peninsula's remote location, and lack of specialized agriculture, there is a remarkable preservation of
over 2,000 monuments. Spectacular mountains, long sandy beaches and the staggering splinter-slatted mass of rocks that
defines the extraordinary coast at Slea Head. The Dingle Peninsula is also associated with the film industry. Ryan's Daughter
was filmed here, as were parts of Far and Away, which starred Tom Cruise.
A 15th Century Castle, which has been restored and has guided tours located on the
shores of Lough Lein.
The Gap of Dunloe
A beautiful glacial valley in the Macgillacuddy Reeks mountain range, which dominate the
skyline of Killarney. You can tour the Gap of Dunloe, by horseback or pony and trap
through the Gap, and then by boat across the Killarney lake to Ross Castle.
