HOW CAN YOU BUY KILLARNEY

How can you buy all the stars in the sky?

How can you buy two blue Irish eyes?

How can you buy Killarney?

The park is just by the big Church. Lovely walks by the river and lakes. See the Kerry cows grazing in the fields. Enjoy Macgillicuddies Reekes in the background. If your lucky you might see an emerald green dragonfly.......

Simply, peaceful and very beautiful

OUR IRISH FRIEND

By Killarney's lake, on a lovely summer day, we played for ages with this incredible dog. No one was about just us 2 and Macgillicuddy (our name for him) so called because of the mountains in the distance.
His life ambition was to empty the lake of stones, which he scooped up from the lake bed and brought them to me one by one.
Hope he got home safe - I'm sure he did - we could still hear him barking for ages on our walk back.

    Killarney seems like a perfect spot to explore the Ring of Kerry. I would definitely take the tour bus option!

    Lovely page on Killarney. Photos are beautiful, and scenery so green! But its Ireland- everything is green. Thanks for sharing.

    Joan, I just love this page! I'm looking into places to take our US visitors next spring. They want to go to Ireland for a weekend.

    You have some stunning photographs. I've not been to Killarney [or Ireland for that matter], but your enticing words and pictures sure help to encourage me to go. The hotel/spa look fabulous.

    Sucha great choice of words, "No rain, no rainbow!" My family came from Killarney and I'm saving up for a trip there in the next 2 years. Your pictures are lovely and make me want to visit sooner! Thanks for sharing :)
