Killarney is one of Ireland’s most beautiful heritage and tourist spots, famed in song and story.

Killarney means ‘Church of the Blackthorn,’ and nobody is quite sure why! Immaculately kept, it was voted Ireland’s tidiest large town in 2007, 2010, 2011, and 2013, and won the overall Tidiest Town award in 2011. Killarney was first made popular by Queen Victoria who visited Killarney in 1861 staying at Muckross House. We are all very proud of our vibrant ‘little’ town and the incredibly beautiful surrounding countryside which makes Killarney a very special place indeed. Brim full of history, heritage, activities, and world class hospitality. Killarney is populated with enthusiastic and welcoming people.
