Overview

Situated just outside popular Killarney with its traditional Irish music, pubs and food, and its wide range of shops. 

There are buses into Killarney that stop just outside the site entrance and plenty of local cycle routes. In an excellent location to explore this wonderful area of lakes, mountains and coast including the Dingle peninsula, the Ring of Kerry and the lovely mountain pass over the Gap of Dunloe. Everywhere there is beautiful scenery to enjoy, Irish culture to soak up and high quality outlet shopping. Day trips with local coach operators can be arranged through reception, with pick-up and drop-off at the campsite, which is ideal for motorhomers. Muckross House, one of Ireland's most renowned stately homes, set in the Killarney National Park, is only 5 miles away, with Torc waterfall nearby too.

 

Owned and run by Derry & Nina Brosnan.
