Welcome to Killarney Region

Castles, gardens and lake adventures are among the highlights of a visit to Killarney National Park, immediately south and west of the town. Just beyond, there's rugged scenery including the too-gorgeous-for-words Gap of Dunloe, with its rocky terrain, babbling brooks and alpine lakes. Towering above is Ireland's highest mountain range, Macgillycuddy's Reeks.

Highlights of Ireland

We’re all a little bit Irish come March 17, but if you’re in the market for something more meaningful than a pint of green beer, hop aboard this delightful nine-day adventure to the Emerald Isle. Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry, traditional music in a local pub... seriously, it doesn’t get much more quintessentially Irish than this. We mix the essential sites and time in the villages to really round out the experience. Even if Ireland isn’t the Old Country for you, this trip will make you feel as though you’re back home.


Ireland Hike, Bike & Kayak

Ireland is well known for its rolling green hills – so why not get out there and bike them? On this active trip to the Emerald Isle, you’ll find plenty of adrenaline-filled activities that will get you into remote parts of the country and let you see this popular destination in a different way. Of course, there will still be plenty of chances for whiskey tasting and a pint at the pub as well. Get to know Ireland’s rugged side up close and personal.

Ireland Explorer

For anyone looking to dive into the landscapes and lore of Ireland (all of it) this 13-day introduction to the entire island is just the ticket. From the perfectly charming city of Galway and the celebrated, awesomely lush Ring of Kerry (keep that camera at the ready) to the postcard streetscapes of Dublin and all the centuries-old distilleries, green hills, and local pubs (and Guinness!) you can possibly fit in — Ireland will get deep inside your heart.
