Killarney (Cill Airne in Irish) is the gateway to the Ring of Kerry and has been Ireland's top town for tourism for many years. Granted, Killarney is a very unique and attractive town but is outshone by the surrounding countryside with it's mountains, lakes, woods, coastline and overall beauty which attracts visitors from around the world. You can take a ride though part of this beauty by taking a Jaunting Car, the local form of horse drawn carriage. Always take a raincoat as the weather can be unpredictable. Killarney town has much to interest the tourist, not least, the fine restaurants, gift shops and pubs with their traditional music, of which there are many..
