Vacation rentals in Munster
In the Irish province of Munster you will find countless vacation rentals in the cities and smaller towns from where you can reach the local shops, pubs and restaurants within walking distance. From the vacation rental near the coast you can walk very well to the beach. Even more idyllic is your stay in a country chalet that leaves nothing to be desired in terms of facilities and comfort.Enjoy the hospitality of your holiday home
In Ireland, especially in the west of the island, guests are warmly welcomed in the vacation rental with a pre-heated open fireplace, breakfast and sometimes a full fridge. Many accommodations have their own garden, which is not fenced, but framed by the typical hip-high stone walls. So you can enjoy from the garden the view of wide landscapes or the sea without restrictions.

Location and orientation
Munster is the southernmost province of Ireland, consisting of the counties of Cork, Clare, Limerick, Kerry, Waterford and Tipperary, and is situated on the Iveragh Peninsula. Nearest airports are Cork, Kerry and Shannon.Dreamlike landscapes remain in memory
Munster is scenically characterised by green meadows, narrow coastal roads and wide sandy beaches with a surprisingly warm sea. The Killarney National Park is also located in the Irish province, which has more than a hundred square kilometres of three lakes, a lush green landscape, waterfalls, mosses, lichens and ferns as well as large oak forests.
The region used to be divided into three kingdoms: Desmond, Ormond and Thomond. The name of the province Munster derives from the Celtic goddess Muma.
Top travel tips
Castle ruins and whole castles can be seen in large quantities in Munster. The Blarney Castle in the village of the same name, about nine kilometres away from Cork, is a particularly worth seeing building. The castle, which was still made of wood in the 10th century and replaced by a stone building in the 13th century, was once the residence of King Dermot McCarthy. Today the keep of the building is still preserved, where the "Stone of Eloquence", a large castle garden, a druid circle, a wishing staircase and the witch's cave are located.2. Visit the charming coastal village
Be sure to visit the village of Dingle, which National Geographic says is the most beautiful place in the world. The centre is dotted with colourful houses, small shops and beautiful pubs. Visit the beach and the dolphin, considered the most famous inhabitant. And don't forget the camera when you visit the nearby Cloghar Cliffs.3. Art in the most famous gallery
The Catherine Hammond Gallery in West Cork is considered one of the hottest art galleries in the region. The exhibition shows changing exhibitions of Irish artists who have already made a name for themselves regionally and nationally.
