People have been escaping to Killarney – in the ancient Kingdom of Kerry – for over 250 years. They come for the legendary beauty: the lakes, waterfalls, mountain peaks and heart stopping views. And they come for the craic agus ceol: the good times and the banter, the pubs, live music, and easy Irish charm. It’s known as “the home of the traditional Irish welcome”, because this is where Irish tourism began.
Family Owned and Run
Killarney has been in the business of tourism since the 1700s. It is a medium sized town with a population of approximately 12,000 people and the majority of local businesses are family owned as they have been for generations. When an exciting event like Ireland BikeFest Killarney roars into town, everyone rolls out the welcome mat to ensure our guests have much fun and adventure.
Killarney has some of the best scenic and outdoor activities to suit the whole family.
