Ireland at its best!

Ahhh, Kerry the Kingdom...

Well, during spring and summer, Killarney is the seething tourist cauldron that every true traveller dreads. However, outside these busy months, there's lots of cool craic going on as well and the often rainy weather only adds to the atmosphere. In the immediate vicinity, you find beautiful Killarney National Park and gorgeous peninsulas like Beara, Iveragh and Dingle.

If it's the mystical Ireland you're after, the commercialised aspect of Kerry (and indeed the entire country) might disappoint you. But then, when you're here outside the big tourist season, there's still plenty of space for lonely walks amid gloomy spells of rain in hauntingly beautiful vales.

In other words: it's The Island of Legends at its best!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The most diverse and beautiful corner of Ireland!
  • Cons:Tends to be a tad wet...
  • In a nutshell:If you miss it, you haven't been to Ireland!

    Nice B&B, rather like staying in them. Just checking out Killarney, as visited Killarney, in queensland, Australia last week. It was settled by the Irish who came from Killarney, Ireland, and is just as pretty!

    Interested to read the two options for tackling the pass - driving or walking. Last week we cycled over - what an experience!

    Great pages, it is a great part of the country- pity it is so far from Dublin.
