We are arriving by train into Farranfore mid April around 5 pm to rent a car and drive to Killarney to pick up another couple that will arrive in Killarney by train around 7 pm. I'm not sure we will make it to the park before it closes but I would like to do something to explore this area! If we make it to the park before closing, is an hour enough time to take a short hike in the Killarney National Park? Any suggestions? The only short walk I found so far was the Torc waterfall.
Would we be better off just strolling the streets of Killarney?
I am 71 years old, am NOT going to drive abroad (I am from the USA) any longer, but would love to spend a couple of days in Kinsale. I have heard it is so beautiful. Is there a bus I could take there from Shannon or Dublin? Where/how would I arrange that?
We will be traveling the Kerry Way in about 2 weeks time.
Starting at Killarney to Black Valley on the first day.
What will be the cheapest way to get from Killarney to Muckross House besides walking that distance :-)? approximated price range?
Thanks in advance
What is a realistic driving time from Doolin to Killarney, Ireland?
Hi! My wife and I are planning a getaway to Ireland, and wondering if it's worth the drive to Killarney on 3-day trip. We are planning to spend one day each in Dublin, Galway, and Killarney, but don't want to spend all day driving. Do you think Killarney is a reasonable drive from Dublin/Galway, or if a long one, still worth it? Any advice is much appreciated!
Hi I am planning to have my hen weekend in Ireland next feb. Been looking at Belfast and Dublin. But have heard that Killarney has a good atmosphere with plenty of bars. Do you think it is suitable for a party of roughly 12 hens or are we better sticking with Belfast or Dublin for the nightlife?
What is the easiest way to get from Killarney to Tralee. We will each have a suitcase?
Going to be in the Southeast of Ireland at end of May and I'm looking for possible White Water Kayaking opportunities near Killarney. Something in the neighborhood of a half day would be good. I won't be bringing my boat over so will need equip. rental as well.
Im flying from Edinburgh to Dublin tomorrow and, instead of staying in the big city first and travelling the countryside later on, Ive decided to do it the other way around this time, so my plan is to go from the Dublin airport to Killarney. I imagine the best way to get there would be by train, right? But in the Dublin airport website it said that there is no railway connection there, so I should take a bus to one of the train stations. Which one should I go to? My flight arrives at about 21hrs, can I still get a train that night to Killarney or would it be easier to just book a night at a hostel in Dublin and travel on the following morning?
I would also like to then go on to Doolin, to see the Cliffs of Mohre. Can I get there by train directly from Killarney or would it be better to be "stationed" in Galway (which Im planning to visit anyway) and make daily trips out?
Thank you very very much in advance for any answers! The VT forum has already been a HUGE help planning my travel so far and as soon as Im somewhere more stable, Ill start writing reviews and "giving back"! Thanks again :)
It may sound cliché, but having some Irish ancestry and hearing this song as a kid made it sound wonderful. Now, I have the opportunity to do so with my family. I am wondering if much is open over the long Christmas weekend or if we would be sufficiently satisfied with the amenities at a nice hotel, local walks and Christmas mass.
Please let me know if 3-4 days worthwhile over Christmas. Due to flight times and days that I can take off, we may do a couple of days in Dublin as well with a rental car and stop by Blarney Castle.

Will be on a tour of Ireland next week and will be spending Wednesday and Thursday nights in Killarney. In case we wind up having to find our own entertainment those nights. . . . - what would be some recommended locations that are not tourist traps but yet have a lively atmosphere. Our group of friends are in the 30's to 40's age bracket if that makes a difference.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions
We will be visiting in May and would like to kwow if there is any transport from Killarney to Dingle besides the daily bus or renting a car(not a good option) We would like to take the bus tour of the Ring of Kerry one day, and then get over to Dingle later on that day if at all possible.

We are planning a trip to Ireland in search of our ancestors. My Great Grandfather Robert Welch (several different versions of spelling have been found)was born in Killarney, Kerry, Ireland about 1840. The IGI file states that he and his parents Janes and Ellen were Roman Catholic. I am looking for further information on them. Does this church have the records if not could you advise as to where we should start. We plan to stay in Ireland about a week, so our time will be short. He married a girl by the name of Margaret O'Connor who was born in Bally-Na-Lackin, Limerick, Ireland and will want to go to that area too. We have a little more information on her than we do in Robert and his family.
Any assistance you can offer will be so greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance.

My Wife and I will be staying in Killarney for a few days this October before going to Dublin. We are trying to decide if we should take the train to Dublin or hire a driver (we won't have a rental car). The driver is more expensive but will include a tour of the Rock of Cashel. How easy is it to get to travel by train from Killarney to Dublin? Is the Rock of Cashel worth a stop off on the way to Dublin,
I'm looking for a swimming pool/jacuzzi open to the public in Killarney. I do know several of the spa complexes have special facilities with herbal saunas and fancy showers, but these cost 25 euros to use, and we don't particularly like saunas. Paying 25 euros/$40/£20 just to use the pool and jacuzzi is way too steep. Any suggestions for a less expensive option? Many thanks.
