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.
Wilderness Ireland wins our vote for the best tour company we have traveled with. The guides are outstanding, their itineraries great and accommodations are very good. We have traveled extensively over the past 40 years - all seven continents and more than 80 countries. We think Ireland is fabulous and thank everyone at Wilderness Ireland for such a wonderful trip
