The best part about Killarney National Park, outside of it's abundant natural beauty of course, is the existence of charming horse-drawn buggies! A mode of transport long extinct in most parts of the world, it can be experienced in abundance while exploring the National Park! Dominated primarily by its three lakes - Lough Leane, Muckross Lake & the Upper Lake, the National Park is more than 10000 hectares of pure relentless natural beauty. Reserve at least one whole day to explore at leisure!
Killarney is another of those dainty little Irish towns that have sadly succumbed to the tide of tourism. Mobbed in the summers, Killarney is best visited in late spring. Killarney at best, is used as a base-camp for a visit to the Killarney National Park. Attractions within the town are limited to the majestic St. Mary's Cathedral and the countless trad pubs on its tiny streets. Some notable names are O'Connor's and Tatler Jack's! O'Connor's in particular is one of Ireland's most renowned pubs, known primarily for its brilliant daily evening entertainment sessions & its relentless craic!
