Killarney is without doubt the tourist capital of Kerry. Accordingly it is well supplied with hotels, restaurants, shops, pubs and a seemingly inexhaustible supply of jaunting carts to take tourists on trips through the surrounding countryside. Generally, everything is set up to serve mass tourism The countryside surrounding Killarney is however peerless with its romantic combination of lakes and the surrounding Macgillycuddy's Reeks mountains and should not be missed.
Killarney can be reached by road in about 45 mins from the Anchor Caravan Park
Ring of Kerry
The 10 mile Ring of Kerry encircles the Ivereagh Peninsula and can be driven around in a day. It offers spectacular scenery which can be enjoyed without necessarily leaving the car. The evening can be particularly rewarding as the bulk of the tourist traffic will have abated and the lingering Atlantic twilights and sunsets are long, slow and fabulous.
Killarney is the gateway to the Ring of Kerry
