Killarney Tourism & Travel Guide

The very first post I wrote about my time in this wonderful country was titled 'Ireland - 50 Shades of Green, Blue & Beer' - you can find this on my website titled Nomadic Lives (for some insightful reading, I promise); here are some useful links: 7 Travel Lessons from my 1st Independent Excursion - http://nomadiclives.com/travel/7-travel-lessons-1st-independent-excursion/ Ireland - 50 Shades of Green, Blue & Beer - http://nomadiclives.com/travel/ireland/ireland-50-shades-green-blue-beer/ 11 Irish Facts & Myth Busters - http://nomadiclives.com/travel/ireland/11-irish-facts-myth-busters/ Coming back to the point at hand, I believe I managed to capture a lot of what makes Ireland special in that one single title. ...

Ring of Kerry

The Ring of Kerry is one of Europe’s great scenic drives, a circular route around the rim of the Iveragh Peninsula in the extreme southwest of Ireland, through rugged sandstone hills and lush sub-tropical vegetation, with myriad mountain and coastal views. The route overlooks Dingle Bay to the north, the open Atlantic to the west and the sheltered waters of Kenmare Bay to the south. Inland, to the east, are the purple hills known as Macgillycuddy’s Reeks and the Lakes of Killarney. The Gulf Steam ensures a mild, frost-free climate.

The Ring of Kerry

Amongst the top 3 circular drives in Ireland, the Ring of Kerry is the longest & most diverse. Combining jaw-dropping coastal scenery with stretches of land that are simply green and blissful, the 179 km long circuit winds past pristine beaches, distant views of the island-dotted wild Atlantic, medieval ruins, mountains & lakes aplenty. Tour buses navigate this route in an anti-clockwise direction fro Killarney - to avoid getting stuck behind one, navigate the route in a clockwise direction. You can take regular pit-stops at some charming villages like Kenmare, Sneem, Caherdaniel, Waterville, Caherciveen & Killorglin! Between Waterville & Caherciveen is the secluded village of Portmagee, which can be used as a launching pad for a one day excursion to nearby Skellig Michael - one of Ireland's 3 UNESCO World Heritage sites. It is an island 11 kms off the mainland coast, which houses a pre-historic monastic settlement.

About Killarney

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!
