While on your holiday in Killarney why not to take a road trip to see most stunning sceneries, golden sand beaches and various amount of Heritage sites.

You may be on an organised trip with a coach tour company or perhaps traveling with your family or as an individual looking to explore and discover the real Ireland. In any case a warm, comfortable bed and excellent food awaits you after your daily travels.
Walking, hiking, cycling and boat trips on the lakes are some of the best ways to see this wonderful area.
Official trails that you can take, range from low-level parkland walks taking only an hour or so, through to the more adventurous treks that can take up to 9 days to complete. Some of the trails are what’s known as ‘loop walks’. These will take you from your start point, through spectacular scenery and back to your starting point again, without ever double-backing on yourself. With several to choose from, they can take anywhere from half an hour up to four hours. There really is something for everyone.
The Wild Atlantic Way is the world’s longest coastal touring routes. It stretches along the West coast of Ireland, along cliff tops and sandy beaches and it could be argued that the Kerry section is the most scenic of all. Whether you’re driving or decide to walk part of the route, you’ll be bowled over by the outstanding beauty of the landscape here.
Another two famous trails are the Kerry Way & Dingle Way.
