Guided Killarney National Park Walking Tour
"Meet your guide at 11am outside O'Sheas Funeral Home opposite St. Marys Cathedral for a two hour walk of Killarney National Park. This can be extended to a longer walk if desired.The cathedral was designed by Augustus Welby Pugin who came over to and building commenced in 1842. During the great famine the unfinished building was used as a shelter for starving people who came in from the countryside. The lovely thatched cottage Deenagh Lodge which once served as a gate lodge is now a popular tea r a new age travel as the railway first opened in Killarney in 1853. Sika deer were introduced to the area from Wicklow in 1865 and there is now a good number of them. The native red deer are a bigger attraction they came close to extinction but thankfully there now is a good size herd in the National Park.The year 1969 was an exciting one as Charles De Gaulle spent nearl but the love scene was done in the National Park. Not surprising as the scenery speaks for itself.All the local guides have a great love of their home place so you can be guaranteed an informative tour."""

Killarney NP 3

But with sights like these it didn't matter too much.
The town of Killarney is really nice too - lots of good pubs and good beer. A good time to be had around every corner.

Killarney NP 2

The weather was rather horrible when I was there - it was still early spring and it rained, hailed and snowed all the time while I was walking around
