Killarney town is surrounded by Killarney National Park and a series of mountain ranges which combine geometrical profiles, dramatic contrasts and beautiful colours.
After a walk, you can enjoy its peaceful and friendly atmosphere, and the kindness and hospitality of the local people.
Water running from streams, rivers, waterfalls and lakes along to The Wild Atlantic Ocean; woodlands with native and ancient trees covered in moss; wild flowers, ferns, heather and bracken; deer, wild goats, white-tailed eagles, foxes; remains of dwellings built by earlier inhabitants thousands of years ago will cause you to pause.
Walking in this scenery will enhance the positive side of your personality and you will be filled with a sense of well-being.
The journey through The Gap of Dunloe showcases the grey and purple majesty of Purple Mountain and the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, which contrasts with Mangerton Plateau and the dramatic mountain passes around Horses Glen.
There is the vibrant magic and prevalent green of summer in the valleys and woodlands of Killarney National Park, which transforms into a rich tapestry of differing shades of golden browns as summer turns to autumn over the mountains of Co. Kerry.
