Killarney National Park
A rugged landscape home to the Lakes of Killarney and the McGillycuddy Reeks Mountain Range, is Ireland’s oldest national park. Take a walk off the beaten path while taking in scenic views of the lakes and mountains. Look out for red deer grazing in the fields or call into the tearooms for a pick-me-up along the way.
The Ring of Kerry
Iveragh Peninsula to give it its correct name, will amaze you with stunning views of the Ring of Kerry, including Kenmare Bay, Dingle Bay and MacGillycuddy Reeks – mystical & unspoilt region of Ireland welcoming tourists for generations. Visit picturesque towns along the way such as Sneem, Waterville and Glenbeigh.
The Dingle Peninsula stretches 30 miles (48 kilometres) into the Atlantic Ocean on the south-west coast on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. Take in top attractions including Ferriter’s Cove, the Gallarus Oratory and the Blasket Centre. Life seems to tick by at a slower pace in the local postcard-ready villages. Admire views over the Slieve Mish Mountains and Mount Brandon – Ireland’s second highest peak. Take the famous Connor Pass on your way back to Killarney.
Muckross House, Gardens & Traditional Farms
Arguably the centre-piece of Killarney National Park, the museum can be accessed through a guided tour to experience the interiors dating back to the 19th century. The house s an ideal base from which to explore the National Park and surrounding landscape.
