Killarney is one of the most beautiful areas in Ireland and is a big part of the reason that Irish people voted Co Kerry Ireland’s favourite domestic holiday destination.

Killarney is famous for its stunning views of unspoiled natural beauty spots including hills, forests, wildlife and lakes – including the Gap of Dunloe and Ladies View at the Lakes of Killarney. More on the Lakes of Killarney

    My favorite place is still the southern coast of Cork. The Driscolls are from Baltimore and Skibereen and I long to go back again.

    What about Castle Main in Ireland? It’s in County Kerry also, does it rank on the list of places to visit?

    Killarney was one of our favorite stops in Ireland. We loved Muckross! It was beautiful. The people of Ireland are the best and we hope to visit again.

    Killarney and the surrounding area is some of the most beautiful places in the world, it’s no wonder they made the list. I have been there several times and would go back in a heartbeat!

    I have been to Killarney and Galway both, and loved them. My dream is to return to Ireland again someday. I have been homesick for it ever since I returned to the States.
