Killarney National Park

South and west of the town of Killarney in Co. Kerry is an expanse of rugged mountainous country. This includes the McGillycuddy’s Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland which rise to a height of over 1000 metres. At the foot of these mountains nestle the world famous lakes of Killarney. Here where the mountains sweep down to the lake shores, their lower slopes covered in woodlands, lies the Killarney National Park. The distinctive combination of mountains, lakes, woods and waterfalls under ever changing skies gives the area a special scenic beauty.

In addition to taking a walk and enjoying the spectacular scenery, popular Park activities include biking, being driven in a horse-drawn carriage and visiting many archaeological sites.

Our properties 1 The Cable Station and Derrynane Lodge are located only an hour away from the Park. Why not make a trip to Killarney National Park when you stay at one of these incredible properties?
