A day full of love is almost upon us and there are few better places to spend it than in Killarney. We hope yours is filled with the reddest roses, delicious food and of course lots of love. Today we will be showing you our itinerary for the perfect Valentine’s Day in Killarney.

1. Boat Tour of the Lakes of Killarney

 Start your day off on the Lakes of Killarney. Set upon the spectacular backdrop of the glorious MacGillycuddy Reeks, it is exceptionally idyllic, and one of the most romantic places to visit in Killarney on Valentine’s Day.  Guided boat tours of the lakes are available and you will be taken across the Lakes of Killarney and up the Gap of Dunloe if you so wish. Take in the breathtaking scenery as you learn about the history of the many islands sitting on the Lake.

3. Jaunting Car ride through the National Park

Once you and your loved one arrive back at Ross castle you should take a horse-drawn carriage from Ross Castle back to Killarney town while taking in the sights of the National Park. Enjoy yourselves as you sit back and listen to the Jarvey’s many tales and who knows you may learn a few things from them. It will be a nice slow romantic trip back.
