1. Exploring the Killarney National Park by Car

Killarney National Park was the first national park in Ireland. The park encompasses over 102.89 km2 (25,425 acres) of diverse ecology, including the Lakes of Killarney, oak and yew woodlands and mountain peaks. It has Ireland's only native herd of red deer and the most extensive covering of native forest remaining in Ireland. The park is of high ecological value because of the quality, diversity, and extensiveness of many of its habitats and the wide variety of species that they accommodate. Driving through this vast parkland, it is a wonder in itself and takes the number one spot in our list of attractions to visit while staying at Cahernane House Hotel.

While visiting in Killarney, we recommend that you enjoy your stay at this hidden gem to the fullest by spending a few days at the Cahernane House Hotel as well as exploring its vast perimeters. The beauty and serenity found here, are undeniably captivating.
