Holiday Home Killarney

Killarney Outlet Centre

Arlington Heights Holiday Home is situated in an residential area near the bus and train station in Killarney, and within 5-7 Minutes walking time to shopping centre, pubs, restaurants, shops and movieplex. While staying at Arlington Heights House you do not necessarily need a car, as most sights are in walking distance or can be reached with a bicycle (to rent nearby), or by regular bus transport. Kerry Airport is merely 20 minutes away.
Muckross Lake
The richness of vegetation around Killarney comes as a surprise to many. The national park does not only host three beautiful lakes but is also home to immensily tall trees and impenetrable rhododendron groves. The park is of particular interest to botanists because of the many patches of virgin oak, which once covered most of Ireland. There are many short and long walks along which to explore the magnificent, romantic landscape with the Kerry mountains as a backdrop. Tourists can also enjoy the park by bicycle, on horseback and with horse-drawn vehicles, the so-called "jaunting cars". There are more excellent sport and leisure facilities in the nearer and wider surroundings, including golfing and angling. The Southwest of Ireland including west Cork, Dingle and the Ring of Kerry can easily be explored on day trips with your own car or on regular bus tours.
Muckross Abbey
Muckross Abbey, House and Gardens are 4 km away. The franciscan abbey, typical of the 15th century with gothic windows was destroyed by Cromwell's soldiers in 1652; the peaceful ruins are half-hidden amid oaks, sycamores and ash trees. A graveyard with many old graves is just outside the abbey. Nearby is Muckross House, a neo-gothic mansion and well tended gardens which can both be visited.

On the banks of the lower lake "Lough Leane", near the town and dating from around 1500 is romantic Ross Castle. While being there you might take a boat trip across the lake to see some of the more than thirty islands in the lake. Most popular is Innisfallen Island, with the remains of two little chapels dating from the 7th century.

The road towards Moll's gap passes 60-foot Torc waterfall, the upper lake and Ladies View, a vantage point from which to survey the lakes.
Gap of Dunloe Kerry
The Gap of Dunloe is a shadowy and rocky pass between MacGillycuddy's Reeks and the Purple mountain leading into the remote Black Valley, and which can be explored on foot, with a jaunting car or with a bicycle.

Mountain walkers have a variety of longer and shorter hikes to choose from. The routes to Purple Mountain, Mangerton Mountain and Torc Mountain are especially rewarding. Ireland's longest walking trail, the 220km long Kerry Way also starts and ends in Killarney. Last not least there is Carrauntuohil, with 1039 mtrs. Ireland's highest mountain. The most popular trail starts in Cronin's Yard, just half an hour drive from Killarney.
