Killarney Mini Guide

Many tourists visit Killarney and use rental cars because of its proximity to the Ring of Kerry which is one of the most famous scenic drives in all of Ireland. You really should take the chance to see the amazing countryside of Ireland as there is nothing quite like it anywhere else in the world.

Killarney itself is a very pretty town which was awarded the title of the best kept town in Ireland twice, the last time being in 2011. There is plenty of greenery around and people keep their gardens in immaculate condition.

Apart from its natural highlights, the town has a 2,200 seat concert venue called INEC which, every week hosts shows, concerts and more, so if you get that famous and frequent Irish weather, just head to INEC to be entertained in the dry.

To get to Killarney you drive along the national primary route which is known as the N22. If you are coming from the west you take the N72 and the N71 comes from Bantry in the south.

Although all of these routes are served by trains you will find having a car gives you the flexibility to see places which are not near to the train stations themselves. With our unlimited mileage offer you can do a full tour of Ireland taking in all the major cities including Dublin, Cork and Limerick.
