Travelers and Activities
Killarney is surrounded by an almost untouched natural paradise that reflects Ireland's soul like hardly any other region of the Green Island. Nature lovers therefore get their money's worth at every step. After all, the network of hundreds of kilometres of hiking trails leads you to fabulous places such as the Torc Waterfall, the breathtaking viewpoint "Ladies View" and the mystical Lough Lake. It is home to another treasure, the island of Ross Island, which is accessible from land, and the castle ruins of the same name. If you want to take it easier after your hike, you can change to a boat after exploring the ruins and enjoy the unique flair of the water. Further worthwhile destinations are the ancient stone circle of Lissyviggen and Innisfallen Island with the famous ruins of the monastery Innisfallen Abbey.

Those who like it a little warmer and more stable in terms of weather, however, move into their apartment in Killarney for the summer months June to August.
Fantasy fans know Killarney and his castle Ross Castle from Wolfgang Hohlbein's novel "Drachenfeuer".
