Killarney Falconry

Ireland's landscapes behold the most magnificent fauna, and with Killarney Falconry, you can have a memorable experience with the falcons coming tad closer to you. Oh wait, that would mean having a falcon perched on your arms or shoulders, with you looking in the eye of the stoic bird. Professional guides show you around through a hawk walk, and the birds could be called upon for a brief 'hello'. You could go by yourself or take friends and family along-it turns out that the falcon has got jovial feathers. Move around with hawk-sight, though: a bird might just be planning to make a splendid landing somewhere around.

Lough Leane

Lough Leane (Lake of Learning) is the third lake in Killarney's Long Range. Dotted with over 30 islands, it is best seen from the water. Two waterbus services leave from the jetty by Ross Castle for lake cruises. Glassed over with a running taped commentary, they are not always atmospheric, but do provide breathtaking scenery. These cruises offer taped commentaries in a variety of languages. Be sure to check you have bought tickets for a cruise in the language of your choice. The lake can also be toured using a row or motor boat. Both can be hired at the jetty from one of the many touting boatmen.

Killarney National Park

An expanse of green that seems to embrace the Lough Leane and the Lake Muckross of Killarney, the Killarney National Park lays sprawled over a massive area of 102.89 square kilometer(39.73 square miles). Founded in 1932, it was the first space to be designated a national park in the city. Though started on a smaller estate, the park has grown extensively over the years, and plays host to an incredible assemblage of flora and fauna. A luxuriant canvas of verdant paradise, the park's rolling landscape is delightfully stippled with a melange of massive mountains, jagged cliffs, lush greens, pristine lakes, and gorgeous waterfalls. The park is home to the city's sole remaining native deer, and is a vast haven of chirpy, warbling birds. Draped in loving sheaths of bogland and woodland comprising oak and yew, this viridescent park is as much steeped in history and archaeology as it is in natural beauty. A stirring testament to this fact is the strong existence of pre-Christian remnants like the Inisfallen Abbey and Muckross Abbey, along with other monastic ruins. A dazzling menagerie of tranquillity, nature, history and culture, Killarney National Park is one of Ireland's finest.

Gap of Dunloe

Despite the seemingly never-ending summer stream of travelers on foot, pony and in jaunting car, the Gap of Dunloe remains a spectacular beauty spot. Viewing the Gap during the quiet winter months can be preferable, though it may be difficult to find a long enough dry period to walk. The rewards are great: beautiful mountain lakes, cascading rivers on the mountainsides, and gravity-defying sheep in every visible crevice. As travelers reach the top of the Gap, the lakes spread out in a breath-taking vista. The road then descends into Black Valley and leads to motor boats bound for Killarney across the lakes.

Torc Mountain Walk

This easy four mile (six and a half kilometre) walk to the top of Torc Mountain (1,764ft/525m) is suitable for almost everyone. The trail winds around coniferous woods, heather, and mountain streams. In forested areas, wildlife abounds with birds, rabbits, hares, and even the occasional deer may pass by. Open panoramic vistas provide a top of the world feeling and a breathtaking view of the Lakes, Muckross House Estate, and Ross Castle.

The walk begins at the Torc Waterfall car park.


Carrantoohill (3411ft) is Ireland's tallest peak. Although its height appears pretty tame by world standards, Carrantoohill should never be taken lightly. Even locals would not attempt to make the climb without an experienced guide the first few times. Foolhardy and adventuresome tourists keep the Kerry Mountain Rescue Service busy during the summer months. Weather on the mountain can be quite changeable with sudden mists making visibility impossible. In such conditions it is easy to lose the trail. Expert guides from Cappanalea Outdoor Education Centre offer supervised climbs.
