Killarney National Park

Splendid and enormous

The Killarney National Park extends over 10 000 hectares of varied landscapes ranging from high mountain ranges with thick forests to wild moors and large, peaceful lakes.

The park was created in 1932 and has been listed as a UNESCO biosphere reserve since 1982. The main areas of the park are the McGillycuddy Reeks, the highest mountain range in the country over 1000 metres high, and the three lakes of Killarney, Lough Leane, Muckross Lake and Upper Lake. The park is also home to the largest natural forest in Ireland populated by many unique plant and animal species. Many birds and various deer species are present in the park. The area also attracts a large number of trout and salmon fishermen. Hiking and bike trails are also available.
