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.
