Twenty Four Hours in Killarney

Twenty Four Hours in Killarney
National Park and Gap of Dunloe
Time to get the boat out, near Ross Castle.

Spent twenty four very enjoyable hours in Killarney in midweek. Stayed overnight in the very stylish Randles Court (my review here) and the main visits were to Ross Castle and the Gap of Dunloe. Transport options are improving all the time in the area, a bonus for those travelling without a car. 

There is a new shuttle bus service with two routes. One serves the Muckross area, including Muckross House and Torc Waterfall while the other goes west towards Fossa and into the start of the Gap. Check their Facebook page here for more details. There is also a hop on hop off Big Red Bus that is up and running. It covers five different locations around the area.

Of course, the jarveys are still going strong as is the water bus service on the lakes. More info at the Tourist Office.

After a walk or ride through the gap,
treat yourself at the lovely new
Heather Restaurant by Moriarity's.
I did and I loved every bite!
