Killarney, Ireland

Travel to Killarney

Killarney is a town in County Kerry in southwest Ireland. It has a resident population of 14,504 (as of 2016) but in summer they're outnumbered by tourists, because this is one of the most scenic areas of Ireland, firmly on the tourist circuit for over 150 years. Its lakes command great views of Ireland's highest mountains, and the landscape is protected as Killarney National Park. It's the usual starting point for the Ring of Kerry, the 214 km circuit along the coast of Iveragh Peninsula.

Killarney in Irish is Cill Airne, "church of sloes" or blackthorns. The origin of this is obscure, but other suggested derivations are even more obscure, so sloes it is.
