Fáilte go Cill Airne (Welcome to Killarney)
Length: 1.5 miles | Duration: 45 minutes

Ross Island

Visit Ross Castle on the shores of Loch Lein, Killarney’s ‘Lake of Learning’ as you make your way to Bronze Age copper mines dating back 4,000 years ago. This is one of Killarney’s best known walking trails.
Length: 1 mile | Duration: 20 minutes

Inisfallen

Looking out over the wide expanse of Killarney’s ‘Lake of Learning’ Loch Lein boatman Charlie Fleming deftly drives his boat through the waters towards the island you’re going to visit – Innisfallen, home to monks and scholars in the 11th – 13th centuries AD. Enjoy this refreshing walk as you step ashore and wander through the old monastic ruins, letting your imagination run as wild as the deer that roam the island against the backdrop of Tomies, Purple and Shehy mountains.
Length: 1.5 miles | Duration: 10 minutes

Jaunting Car

All aboard Killarney’s famous Jaunting Car (that’s horse and trap to you and me) and let local guide Michael Bernard O’Donoghue take you on an historic journey along Muckross House, lake and gardens, telling tales of the surrounding lands and scenery. Feel ten feet tall as you ride through the land on one of Killarney’s traditional, 19th-century mode of conveyance.
Length: 2 miles | Duration: 40 minutes

Torc & the Old Kenmare Road

Walk past Torc Waterfall that comes roaring down from the mountain above you. Hike up along a gorgeous walking trail as dappled sun shines through the canopy of trees to greet you as you explore the Old Kenmare Road amongst moorland and heath looking out over Friars Glen.
Length: 1.5 miles | Duration: 50 minutes

Strickeen Mountain

Starting out on an old turf road that slowly and surely climbs towards the summit with gorgeous panoramic views of the Gap of Dunloe, Muckross Lake and the MacGillycuddy Reeks, Ireland’s highest mountain range. It’s hard going but the views are well worth the effort!
