Killarney

(4.5/5 based on 20,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: nature, parks, sightseeing
Continuously inhabited since the Neolithic period, Killarney draws visitors with its picturesque natural scenery, fine restaurants, and traditional pubs. A major tourist destination for well over two centuries, this ancient town sits in the middle of a vast national park famous for its lakes, waterfalls, dense forests, and towering mountain peaks. Compact and easily explored on foot, Killarney features a network of narrow lanes flanked by souvenir shops and bookstores. The easiest way to experience the local culture and mingle with the natives is by attending a game of Gaelic football, Ireland's national sport and one of Killarney's favorite social events.

Where to stay

Travelers visit Killarney for the national park surrounding it, and there are plenty of places to stay in town that capitalize on the natural beauty of the valley setting. Because of its popularity, Killarney has more hotel beds than any other town or city in Ireland other than Dublin. Stay at a hotel or hostel in the town's center near the bustling corner of Main Street and East Avenue Road, or find a place along the side streets off Main Street for easy access to tourist shops, local pubs, and restaurants. There are plenty of affordable bed and breakfasts or guesthouses just within walking distance from the center, or you can stay outside of town at a scenic farmhouse or luxurious resort.
