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!
