What can I say about the Killarney National Park that hasn't been said a thousand times more eloquently? It's an absolutely beautiful area which you'll be hard pressed to scratch the surface of in a day, a week or a month. Everything you've ever read is probably true - and more. What can I add? It's simply stunning.

Drive through, stop frequently. Take in the waterfalls, the lakes, the views. This is the Ireland of your imagination.

Travelled through park on way from Cork to Killarney. The drive was beautiful and some brilliant scenery, the best of which was 'Ladies View' and 'Torc Waterfall'.

It was a great trail with beautiful scenery. Not far from Vancouver, just 20 minutes for the ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay. It's nice to be in a quiet place away from the city.

Breathtaking, awesome, spectacular scenery. We did the Ring of Kerry on a cloudy day, with occasional drizzle, and the peaks sometimes hidden behind cloud. And you know what? It doesn't matter what the weather is like (within reason). Yes a little more sun would not have gone amiss, but the dramatic play of light and shade on the mountains is... More

We had a short trip thru the park. It is a beautiful place to visit. Lots of nice scenery and a lot of Red deer. Just a pleasant way to spend some time on a cool fall day.

Breath-taking views all the way with lakes and lush green forests. We drove and loved the unique views around each bend. You can take a touring car (really a horse and buggy) around the park. There are longer hikes for those who really want to be in the outdoors. You could spend days here or just a few hours.
