Here are OUR TOP THINGS TO DO IN KERRY THIS SUMMER | DAY 1 ITINERARY


Killarney National Park

Killarney National Park

  • An ideal paradise for lovers and families alike.
  • Secluded hidden lakes, beaches, enchanting waterfalls and mesmerising sunsets.
  • Breathtaking scenery with over 25,000 acres of woodland, waterfalls and vistas abound.
  • See all of our favourite picks in Killarney National Park below:
Ross Castle

1. Ross Castle

Sits on the edge of Lough Leane, built in the 15th century.

Just a stone’s throw from Killarney town, the trip to the castle is best taken by Jaunting Cart.

The castle is open for tours throughout the season and boat trips are available to Inisfallen Island from the castle too.

2. Lough Leane

The largest of the three lakes of Killarney.
Locals and tourists alike pause and catch their breath at its unique natural beauty. 

Muckross Abbey Cycling Route

3. Muckross Abbey

An old Irish Monastery situated in the middle of the national park.

Founded in 1448 as a Franciscan friary, its most striking feature is a central courtyard, which contains a large yew tree and is surrounded by a vaulted cloister

Torc Waterfall

4. Torc Waterfall

A cascade waterfall at 20 metres high, 110 metres long, A short walk of approx 200 metres brings you to the waterfall. From that point steps lead to another viewing point at a higher altitude that provides a view over the Middle Lake.

Ladies View

5. Ladies View

Gap of Dunloe, Purple Mountain and the MacGillycuddy Reeks can be seen from Ladies View, an amazing viewing spot – ideal for a romantic snap!

Meeting of the Waters

6. Meeting of the Waters

Where all three of Killarney’s glorious lakes merge together. Most definitely one of the best hidden gems in Killarney. The area is so beautiful, echoing peace and tranquillity in a world of its own.

The Killarney National Park definitely wouldn't be the same without our beloved wildlife. 

You will rarely see them alone, their herd is always somewhere nearby. Who wants to be alone anyway? Tag your "herd" in the comments, and let your friends know they are not alone. 😎

Thank you so much vwphilips for tagging us and sharing!

Be sure to tag us in your Kerry Adventures! theofficialkerryapp or use the hashtag #discoverthekingdom

Hello everyone!  I haven’t posted in a while, as I’ve slowed down a little with only over a week until baby is due. 

I will be having a little break from painting while I settle into my new routine, but expect I’ll be back up and running in no time. 

In the meantime I’m still taking commissions but won’t be giving a set completion date for the time being. 

I’d like to say thank you very much to everyone who has supported me on this little venture, and who’ve ordered commissions over the past few months. I’ve really enjoyed seeing so many wonderful doggies, and even getting to meet many of them in person! It’s been an absolute joy. ❤️ 

Over the next few weeks I’ll share some of my favourite paintings, and as always feel free to get in touch if you have any queries about commissions & prices 🐾 Thanks again☺️
