A beautiful cycle, and fairly easy, taking you from Killarney to the Muckross area, passing many famous sights including Muckross house, Muckross abbey, the meeting of the waters, the old weir bridge and Dinis cottage.
You’ll do a loop of the middle(or Muckross) lake, and finish up at Torc waterfall. Suitable for all levels of fitness, you’ll cover around 20 kms.
The Gap of Dunloe.
A more difficult trip, but very rewarding. It’s around 50 kms from Killarney, through the Gap of Dunloe and back by Muckross, or vice versa, so all of the above may be seen also.
The Gap, created by a slow moving glacier around two million years ago is a ten kilometre path through the Macgillicuddy reeks, with five little lakes, narrow stone bridges and mountains rising either side of you.
If the weather is good, this is one of the nicest things to do in Killarney.
The Ring of Kerry.
The ring of Kerry is a 180 km route around the Iveragh peninsula, so it’s best to give yourself three to five days to do this at your leisure. There are many little towns and villages around the ring, so food and a place to stay are never too far away.
You’ll see the best of everything Kerry has to offer, with mountains, lakes, rivers and wild Atlantic coastline surrounding you. The Skellig rocks, Valentia island, the beaches at Rossbeigh and Kells, and far too many delights to be listed here.
