Video: Killarney, Co Kerry

“A perfect mix of scenery and great variety for tourists and locals”



“From the moment we arrived in the town, it was clear why it was shortlisted. The locals are very convincing on the positives associated with Killarney: a perfect mix of scenery such as lakes and mountains, and a great variety of activities for both tourists and locals:
GAA matches in Fitzgerald Stadium, concerts in the INEC, climbing Carrauntoohil or canoeing in the Lakes of Killarney.

“It suits all ages and offers a range of choices regardless of the weather.”
