Where is it?
The house is just minutes from Killarney National Park, known worldwide for the beauty of its lakes and mountains, with over 10,000 hectares full of interesting walks, cycles, hill walks etc. as well horse riding, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, photography and wildlife spotting (e.g. wild deer and eagles). For the less active visitor, the area can also be seen by horse and cart, car and tour boats.
Killarney is great for golf with some of the best courses in the country (the Irish Open was held here the last few years).
Within 5 minutes drive of our house you will find Muckross Abbey, an ancient ruin overlooking the lake, and Muckross House, built for Queen Victoria with its extensive gardens. Not far from here is Torc Mountain with its beautiful waterfall. Ten minutes from us is Ross Island with a medieval castle and its 17th century monastery on Inisfallen Island across the lake, along with Europe’s oldest copper mines all ready to explore on the beautiful peninsula. All of these are set in spectacular settings, fantastic in every season.
There is a traditional farm with farmhouses and animals, a petting farm and a wildlife park all nearby.
Killarney is a lively little town which is the beginning and end of the famous Ring of Kerry loop with beautiful towns and spectacular scenery along with historical monuments and great activities including surfing and horse riding on the gorgeous sandy beaches.
(There is so much to explore in this area, we will just stick to what is within a few minutes from our house).
Tourists have flocked to Killarney for centuries on account of the amazing nature and, accordingly, the town has a huge range of bars, cafes, restaurants and hotels offering fine dining, drink and entertainment. For the wet weather there are cosy pubs with great music, a 6 screen cinema, good shopping and many hotel spas and leisure centres open to non-residents. For the kids, there is a lovely indoor playground. The INEC also hosts well known artists for music, comedy and theatre.
Whether you are coming for activity, music and “craic”(Irish for fun, to be found in pubs year round), relaxation, history or nature, Killarney and our beautiful home will not disappoint you. Fiona’s Dad lives nearby and can also act as tour guide while you are here should you wish.
