You'll have to walk over 1km to get to it but, it is a nice walk overlooking Muckross lake. Same walk for the Old Weir Bridge (see sightseeing). You can also have a soup and a sandwich here.

The Great Southern Hotel has been at the forefront of Killarney's tourism since it opened in 1854. It offers a great setting for both formal and informal dining: -Brownes Bar offers informal dining, a varied menu including vegetarian options. The food is generally quite good and changes often. Wonderful selection of whiskeys from around the world and alcohol-free cocktails. -The Killarney Wine Rooms in the basement offer a great wine tasting experience where you can try wines from some of the best vineyards around the world. -Although the Garden Room Restaurant is a beautiful space, I don't rate the food.

You're really right by the lake here. The surrounding scenery from this hotel is breathtaking, perfect for a drink on the terrace or a light snack in The Lounge or lobby from 11 am. Not especially taken by the food in the Brasserie nor in the Panorama Restaurant though.

There's a long history to this estate, perhaps a little less known than the Muckross Estate. Beautiful old house full of fine furnishings and grandeur. -The Herbert restaurant offers very good food and have recently been awarded 2 AA Rosettes in recognition of culinary excellence. The 5-course dinner menu is great. -The Cellar bar (in the old house cellar) also serves light bites and sandwiches. Good choice for afternoon tea too! (with prosecco if you like!)

Gorgeous view and a nice drive up the mountain. If you're doing the Ring of Kerry, it is just a quick stop at one of the viewing points as you're coming into Killarney from Kenmare. You'll also find a Cafe and bar with rooftop seating from which to enjoy the view and the fresh air!

Old Weir Bridge
Blarney Castle and gardens, home of the famous Blarney Stone, (approx. 1h30min from the cottage) 60 acres of beautifully diverse gardens and a castle from medieval times (the 1400s) where the stone is. Kissing the stone has been an Irish tradition for centuries, it is believed to give you the gift of eloquence or locally known as "the gift of the jab". There can be a long line for the Blarney stone. It can be quite scary and difficult to get into a position to actually kiss the stone so keep that in mind when planning your visit. You have to pay for admission but you can enjoy a whole day there. You can book online or pay at the door. There's a cafe in the state but I personally much prefer to bring a picnic, just always remember to leave no trace! www.blarneycastle.ie

Ross Castle is another treasure within the Killarney National Park. It dates from the 15century and sits by the edge of the lower lake - Lough Leane.-on Ross Island. Not far from town. You can take a guided tour of the part of the interior that has been recently restored, or can simply visit the grounds. If you fancy a walk you can follow one of the trails on the island. The Copper Mines trail – a peaceful 2km looped trail on paved paths. Mining activity in the area dates back over 4,500 years with activities ceasing in the mid 19th Century. Boat trips, the waterbus and kayaking are available from the shore of the lake here. -Killarney Lake Tours for a cruise/ waterbus and/ or a jaunting car trip.+353 (0)6466 32638 www.Killarneylaketours.ie -Outdoor Ireland www.outdoorireland.com
