Undoubtedly, the best way to explore Killarney and its magnificent surroundings is by car. Renting a car allows you to set your own itinerary and take pleasure in the breathtaking landscapes at your own pace. Our car class recommendation for a smooth drive around Killarney would be a compact car such as a Ford Focus. It's perfect for Ireland's narrow roads and easy to park as well.

Transport Hubs

Killarney Train Station

The town’s train station offers connections to major Irish cities like Cork and Dublin. You can rent a car directly from the station, making it a convenient starting point for your journey.

Kerry Airport

Approximately 20 minutes from the town centre, Kerry Airport is the closest airport to Killarney. Car rentals are available from the terminal, offering direct access to the road networks leading to Killarney.

Rules of the Road

Remember that, similar to the UK, in Ireland people drive on the left. However, speed limits are in kilometres per hour, not miles. The speed limit is typically 50km/h in built-up areas, 80km/h on regional roads, and 100km/h on national roads.

Attractions

Killarney is home to many notable attractions. Don't miss out on the Killarney National Park with its tranquil lakes, mesmerising waterfalls, and the historic Muckross House. Challenge yourself with a drive up the Gap of Dunloe or take a more leisurely route around the Ring of Kerry and soak up the breathtaking coastal and mountainous views. For beach lovers, the sandy stretches of Inch Beach and Rossbeigh Beach are just a short scenic drive away.

Parking and Mobility

Car parks in Killarney are aplenty, with options including on-street parking and off-street lots. Some hotels offer free parking for guests, so be sure to check this when booking your accommodation. Traffic can get congested during peak hours, especially during summer, so be prepared for slower-paced driving.

Seasonal Events

From St. Patrick's Day parades in March to Killarney's Christmas festivities in December, there are events all year round. However, the annual Killarney Summer Festival is a unique highlight, featuring horse racing, live music, and family-friendly activities that beautifully showcase local culture.

Climate and Currency

Weather in Killarney is typically Irish; rainy one moment and sunny the next. Be sure to pack accordingly! Also, don’t forget that Euro (€) is the accepted currency in Ireland, unlike the Pound (£) in the UK.

Final Thoughts

With its lush landscapes and warm hospitality, Killarney is a perfect destination for a driving holiday. All you need is a reliable rental car, a bit of planning, and an adventurous spirit to create memories that will last a lifetime.
