Being so close to the National Park is what makes The Priory Cottages special.  You would never believe being the middle of Killarney that so much solitude is available by 10 minute drive from the town center.  My favorite hike was from the top of The Gap to the Twomies back to Dinis.  A 360 degree view of almost all of Kerry.  Simply breathtaking!

Walking

Killarney is a haven for walkers of all ages and levels. From an exciting hill walk on the soaring MacGillycuddy Reeks to a pleasant stroll through the world famous National Park, there is something for everyone.

Old Weir Lodge is within a stones throw form the National Park and the start of the Kerry Way walking route - the longest way-marked trail in Ireland, taking in Killarney National Park, mountain passes, and coastal paths. Its circuit of the Iveragh Peninsula is 215k (135 miles). We can arranged personally guided tours of any of these walks

Some suggested walks around Killarney are as follows:



Easy Walks

Aghadoe and Fossa Way

From the medieval monastery on the ridge of Aghadoe overlooking the Killarney Valley, descend Botharín na Marbh (the little road of the dead) before following the Fossa Way into the Cnoc na Rí estate and into Killarney.
