THINGS TO SEE & DO
Killarney - the vibrant town with plenty to see and do all year round – is especially magical during the month of December.
With Christmas parades, festive events and plenty of nature trails to get you out and about, Killarney has a range of activities to suit all needs and is guaranteed to have something for everyone this Christmas season.
Hiking - Cardiac Hill & Torc Mountain
With its winding path and spectacular views, Cardiac Hill is defiantly worth a ramble. Not for the faint hearted, the trail is highly recommended if you are looking for a challenge, while your hard work will be rewarded with amazing views of the lakes when you reach the top.
If you want to do a longer hike, try Torc Mountain. Your journey to reach the top of Torc will allow you to take in breath-taking views of the famous Torc Waterfall and lakes along the way.
Walking Trails - Gap of Dunloe
The Gap of Dunloe – a quick drive from Killarney –is a must see. Stretching 11km through the Black Valley, you can walk, cycle or climb through the wondrous views of the natural beauty.
Killarney National Park
Spanning 26,000 acres, and one of the biggest areas of natural beauty in Ireland, Killarney National Park offers plenty of trails to keep you out and about.
A great place to start exploring is the Muckross Estate, just outside Killarney Town. Walks include visits to the beautiful formal gardens and historic buildings of the Muckross Demesne. You may even be lucky enough to spot some Red Deer along the way!
