While there step back into the past on Muckross Traditional Farms and visit a very different Ireland – the Ireland of the 1930s and 1940s.

Cardiac Hill/Torc Mountain

There’s never a dull moment on any trip up the steps of Cardiac Hill in Killarney. For those not familiar with this trail, it is a not-so-gentle ascent up the slopes of Torc Mountain, just a few kilometres outside of Killarney town. The steep rise up through hundreds of steps brings great rewards to the walker or trail runner with panoramic vistas throughout the trail. If you need a break en route, you can take your pick of the great views of the Lakes of Killarney, McGillycuddy Reeks and the rest of Killarney National Park.

Killarney Riding Stables

Explore the highlands of Kerry with the majestic McGillycuddy Reeks, Ireland’s greatest mountain range; ride on country lanes, mountain tracks (on one of the few post-to-post trail rides available in Ireland) through forests, over bogs and on some of the beaches at Waterville and on the magnificent 6.4km (4mls) stretch of golden sand at Rossbeigh.
