Killarney

Killarney ©
Continuously inhabited since the Neolithic period, Killarney draws visitors with its picturesque natural scenery, fine restaurants, and traditional pubs.
Appreciate the collections at Norman McCloskey Photography and Kerry Bog Village Museum. Get outdoors at Killarney National Park and Torc Waterfall. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Killarney: Uragh Stone Circle (in Tuosist), Tralee (Jane Hilliard Gallery, Kerry County Museum, &more) and Kenmare (St. Patrick's Church, Gleninchaquin Park, &more). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Muckross House, admire the verdant scenery at Gap of Dunloe, see what you can catch with a fishing tour, and hike along The Kerry Way.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Killarney trip itinerary planning site.

Minneapolis, USA to Killarney is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of flight and train. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Minneapolis to Killarney due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Minneapolis in July, with highs in Killarney at 65°F and lows at 56°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Mon) early enough to go by car to Dingle.

Step out of Dingle with an excursion to Castlegregory Golf Links in Castlegregory--about 30 minutes away.
