WALKING, HIKING & MOUNTAIN CLIMBING
If you really want to explore Kerry, then there’s no better way to do it than by foot. From short walking breaks that stretch your legs to week-long treks to witness the scenery, there really is a walking route for everyone. With 26,000 Acres of National Park surrounded by Kerry's wonderful landscapes and wilderness and miles of nearby golden "blue flag" beaches there are few places elsewhere on this earth that can offer the outdoor enthusiast such wonderful choice within such an intimate and hospitable location. It is said that "in Killarney, you will find a different walking route for every day in the year". At any time of year, with or without guides, walkers can choose from low level parkland walks around beautiful lakes and through some of Ireland's oldest Oakwoods, to higher level hill walks on old coach roads and bridle paths, or for the more adventurous, take on the 3000 feet + summits of the iconic MacGillicuddy Reeks.
BOATING & FISHING
Boat trips on the lake can be arranged (min 24 hours notice) from the private pier at The Europe Hotel & Resort, catering for groups of up to 12 people per boat. Kayaking can be arranged from the banks of the River Laune at The Dunloe with an experienced guide to lead the way. A fun filled activity for all the family. At Ard na Sidhe Country House complimentary boating & fishing on Caragh Lake is available. For the more adventurous angler, try your luck deep sea angling in Kenmare or Dingle Bays.
Complimentary Horse Riding is available on the grounds of The Europe Hotel & Resort and The Dunloe for guests staying at the hotels.
Trekking through the National Park is also available at Killarney Riding Stables
