Killarney

Continuously inhabited since the Neolithic period, Killarney draws visitors with its picturesque natural scenery, fine restaurants, and traditional pubs.
Start off your visit on the 30th (Thu): admire the verdant scenery at Black Valley, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Irish Whiskey Experience, then get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and finally admire the landmark architecture of St. Mary's Cathedral. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 31st (Fri): browse the exhibits of Peter Cox Photography Gallery, bet on a winner at Killarney Races, then explore the activities along Lough Leane, and finally cast your line with a fishing tour.

To find photos and tourist information, read our Killarney vacation planner.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Killarney. In July, plan for daily highs up to 21°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Sat) early enough to go by car to Dingle.

Dingle

Located on Ireland's western coastline, Dingle sits between scenic mountains and the Atlantic Ocean.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Dingle Marina and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Harry Clarke Stained Glass Windows, get engrossed in the history at Músaem Chorca Dhuibhne, contemplate the waterfront views at Lough Anascaul, and don't miss a visit to The Dillon Gallery Paintings by Honora O'Neill.

To find traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Dingle day trip planner.

Drive from Killarney to Dingle in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus; or do a combination of train and bus. Expect a daytime high around 20°C in August, and nighttime lows around 14°C.

Emerald Isle
Gentle green hills, Guinness, leprechauns, and friendly folks characterize this small isle of a country. From the busy big city of Dublin to cozy countryside, the emerald isle harbors a varied natural landscape and is steeped in tradition. Visitors can immerse themselves in the native Irish language by visiting a Gaeltacht, or Irish-speaking region of the country, where traditional culture thrives. The Irish are known for being open and welcoming: from the moment you land to the moment you leave, you'll be greeted with "cead mile failte"--a hundred thousand welcomes.
