“Panorama of Killarney”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

Drove up to this spot, located in front of the Aghadoe heights hotel. The view is magnificent. Your camera will need a good lens to do it justice; this is a great spot to see the lakes and surrounding areas.
A wander through the graveyard, the picturesque church and the round tower are a must just to enhance the view. Don’t go there if it is dull or misty save it for bright light.

“Lovely”

The graveyard is very peaceful and very well looked after, it was a lovely walk if you like that kind of thing. Also the Round Tower was interesting and very picturesque

A beautiful historical site with the ruins of an old Abbey and Round Tower. It will be my final resting place.
