The town of Killarney, about 90 km northwest of Cork airport, is known for its stunning natural landscape and classic Irish charm. Killarney offers visitors the chance to enjoy many outdoor activities like hiking, canoeing, kayaking, and even swimming in the wild. It is also one of Ireland’s best fishing spots for wild Atlantic salmon and the native Irish brown trout. Killarney National Park is well worth exploring, having on its grounds attractions such as the Victorian-era Muckross House and Gardens and Ross Castle, the ancestral home of the O’Donoghue Clan Chiefs. From there, you can take a short boat trip over to Lough Leane’s luscious Innisfallen Island and discover the ruins of a monastery that dates back to 640 AD.
