WALKING, HIKING & MOUNTAIN CLIMBING
To experience Kerry at its finest, it’s best to explore it on foot. Hikers and outdoors enthusiasts will relish the sheer variety of landscapes that are just waiting to be discovered. During your trip to Killarney, take some time to wander through its 26,000-acre National Park, beautiful lakes, ancient Oakland forests, and nearby golden “Blue Flag” beaches. Killarney and its surrounding areas offer a variety of scenic walks to suit all levels – from short strolls to stretch the legs to week-long treks to immerse yourself in the scenery. Those seeking a challenge may be enticed by the higher level hill walks on old coach roads and bridle paths, or even the 3000 feet + summits of the renowned MacGillicuddy Reeks. Should you wish to learn from an experienced local guide or adventure solo, Killarney has plenty of options for you to enjoy.
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.
