Renowned for its Georgian architecture, Westport sits in the shadows of Croagh Patrick, considered the holiest mountain in Ireland.
Explore hidden gems such as Atlantic Drive on Achill Island and Sky Rd. Visiting Kayaking & Canoeing and Strandhill Beach will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Westport side-trips: The Warren Way Walk (in Enniscrone), Lowry's Sweater & Gift Shop (in Clifden) and Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Garden (in Kylemore). It doesn't end there: examine the collection at National Museum of Ireland - Country Life and grab your bike and head to The Great Western Greenway.

Continuously inhabited since the Neolithic period, Killarney draws visitors with its picturesque natural scenery, fine restaurants, and traditional pubs.
Escape the urban bustle at Garinish Island and Gap of Dunloe. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Inchydoney Beach and Molly Gallivan's Cottage & Traditional Farm. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Killarney: St. Anne's Church (in Cork), Charles Fort (in Kinsale) and Rock of Cashel (in Cashel). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Ladies' View, take in the dramatic scenery at Torc Waterfall, view the masterpieces at The Gallery 21 Fine Art Photography, and get outside with Ring of Kerry.
