Visiting Killarney Town


Killarney is a town in southwest Ireland. It is one of Ireland's leading tourist destinations because of the abundant lake and mountain scenery in Killarney National Park. It is also situated on the Ring of Kerry scenic drive.
Killarney has been entertaining visitors and tourists for over two hundred and fifty years. Its beautiful peaks such as Crohane, Tomies, Torc, and Mangerton date way back to prehistoric times when the ice melted after the ice age. There are many tales and legends concerning the town which draw in tourists.
It has charming architecture and style reminisent of the late ninteenth century. Since the council banned gaudy plastic shop signs in the 1980s, there has been a strong competitive streak among shop keepers to put on an attractive face, with old style signs, window boxes, and stained-glass doors.
The town has many narrow lanes which are sometimes hard to navigate but bring about opportunities to stumble upon new adventures. Many restaurants and craft shops are hidden down these lanes and it is well worth the effort to explore.
