Killarney

Continuously inhabited since the Neolithic period, Killarney draws visitors with its picturesque natural scenery, fine restaurants, and traditional pubs.
Start off your visit on the 15th (Fri): admire the sheer force of Torc Waterfall and then explore the wealth of natural beauty at Killarney National Park. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the natural beauty at Muckross House, then step into the grandiose world of Ross Castle, and then appreciate the views at Gap of Dunloe.

Plan my Killarney trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Barcelona, Spain to Killarney is an approximately 8.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also fly; or do a combination of car and ferry. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Barcelona to Killarney due to the time zone difference. Prepare for slightly colder weather when traveling from Barcelona in May: high temperatures in Killarney hover around 17°C and lows are around 10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Kenmare.

Known for its wide range of restaurants and traditional pubs, Kenmare sits along two major Irish tourist routes, the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Ring of Kerry Golf Club. Kick off your visit on the 17th (Sun): head outdoors with Ring of Kerry, tee off at Ring of Kerry Golf Club, then stroll the grounds of Templenoe Burial, then take in the exciting artwork at Blackwater Woodturners, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Patrick's Church. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: look for gifts at Kenmare Soap Shop and then appreciate the extensive heritage of Molly Gallivan's Cottage & Traditional Farm.

Traveling by car from Killarney to Kenmare takes an hour. Alternatively, you can take a bus. In May in Kenmare, expect temperatures between 17°C during the day and 10°C at night. On the 18th (Mon), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
