Snuggled up against Killarney National Park, the town is a perfect jumping-off-point for hiking tours from Killarney. At 102.9 km² (26,000 acres), Killarney is a hiker’s haven. Herds of red deer roam the park’s wilderness, narrow footpaths wind through quiet forests, and in the centre, you’ll find both Ross Castle and Muckross House and Abbey.
Killarney is also a great place to hike, with the highlights being the stunning Gap of Dunloe, the majestic Torc Waterfall, the famous lakes of Killarney and the wildly-named McGillycuddy’s Reeks, which is the highest mountain range in Ireland, rising about 1,000 metres. Despite its close proximity to the bustle of Killarney, the park is a quiet, peaceful place.
It was super..highly recommended..and Wilderness Ireland is to be applauded in their expertise in planning.
