Strawberry trees and Cromwell

by slate2

Has anyone heard about Cromwell felling the strawberry trees in Killarney?

Re: Strawberry trees and Cromwell

by LawnWood

Seeing as how he plundered his way through Ireland it is not hard to imagine that the Strawberry Trees were felled too.
Cromwell's legacy is estimated to have resulted in the death or exile of up to a third of the Irish population.

Re: Strawberry trees and Cromwell

by vbede

I have not heard about felling any trees but generally from what I have read the reality of Cromwell's campaign in Ireland was propagandized far beyond actual facts on the ground. He certainly did the Catholics no favors but I don't think he approaches the demon many make him out to be. You might tie his legacy to the famine and exodus of the 1840s but as that was nearly 200 years later it's a bit of a stretch. More culpable for the famine and its effects would be the British government and monarchy of the 19th Century.

Travel Tips for Killarney

A secluded waterfall and ancient monastery

by healy_ger

Off the beaten path

Take a fishing boat from Ross castle and row to Inisfallen island to see the ancient ruins of a monastery & on to O'Sullivans cascade. The monastery was built in the 6th century. If you are feeling fit, row on to the next Island beyond Inisfallen and over to the lake shore under the mountain to O'Sullivans cascade. The waterfall can also be reached by land by going to Fossa, taking a left as you leave the village and a further left about 3 km down the road. You'll have to do some trekking to get there, about a 2 Km walk.

Gap of Dunloe

by Herb84

The Gap of Dunloe! Wild and beautiful! and with lots of sheep running around :o) I went there in february and beside my two mates we were all alone! The scenery reminds me of "Lord of the rings"...

To get there we took a taxi from Killarney.

kennedys pet farm

by Anadeas

Kennedys pet farm.
If you have children and you are anywhere near killarney you truly don’t want to miss this place, it is by far the best family day out anywhere in Ireland, It is a working farm, so there are no frills, It cost approx 20 euro for a family of four and that includes a free pony ride for the kids. They have a mother & baby field and the best thing is, you can get into the penn to hold & pet the baby animals, the star attraction at the moment is a baby goat by the of snowboots he is just adorable! , there are wishing wells and climbing frames, slides , swings and tree houses, its all very rustic, kinda like a set for the Waltons, They have huge big barn sheds, one of which is home to an indoor playground, (great idea given the Irish weather situation) another is just full of sand with buckets & spades and lots of toy tractors & trailers . Inside in the playground its normal to see the odd sheep, goat or chicken wandering around. There is a small shop on site and a very nice picnic area, but hold onto your belongings, when we were there one lady had her bag stolen, It was found in the barn a short time later but her sandwiches were missing as well as some chocolate bars, there was a goat seen close to the sceane of the crime and although Im not accussing him, he did have chocolate all over his beard. (This really did happen!) there are a few old busses (all of which are missing wheels) situated in various locations on the farm they are of the vintage varity with tables & chairs inside so if it rains you can have your picnic on board, while the kids take turns in the drivers seat. It is really well equipped for children, and as someone who has 2 little ones, We tend never to last the whole day somewhere, but this was the exception. Bring a picnic the shop is fine for tea & coffee but if you want to spend the day there you will need to bring something to feed the kids on.

a great base to explore the surrounding areas

by globetrott

Killarney is one of the most touristy places in Ireland. Many people choose Killarney as a base to explore the Ring of Kerry and maybe also Dingle-Peninsula.

In Killarney you may find many modern hotels in american-style and I am quite sure that many people, who never dare to explore the area around Killarney will fly home again and think that the city of Killarney is typical irish...

Step OUT into the country-side around Killarney and dare to leave the beaten tourist-paths...
The wilderness AROUND Killarney is a lot more interesting than the few pubs around of your "Best Western Hotels" in downtown of Killarney....
