About this site/Contact


There is no such thing as the definitive guide to Killarney. This site is a one-stop source of information on Killarney Ireland for tourists or for those who are curious about the beauty and history of this famous town and its surrounding country.

The information is collected and refined from a number of sources on the internet, from guide books and my personal experience. Thank you to friends and family who have shared information and tips.

Similarly, please send me your comments, tips, and information. Your contributions and suggestions will help keep the information up-to-date, accurate and helpful for future visitors.

I plan to have a multi-lingual version soon.

I am using the same Wordpress theme as you on a client site, and experienced the same problem that you described at the Wordpress site (your post below).

Could you please tell me how you solved the problem? Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

During my research on the Ark of the Covenant one of the topics of interest was trade by seafaring in the ancient world. The irish have the Melisian legend of ancient seafares from spain invading the island in the 10 century BC and whose travels went into the Crimean in the Black Sea, the levant and Egypt. Could the population from this generation and their travel be the origin of the norh african and spanish genetic links??

It is my Son’s 21st Birthday on 28th May, and he is a big fan of Billy Connolly. It has been his dream to see him in concert. I wondered if trips from England or Wales to Killarney. He will have a problem hiring a car because he won’t be 21 years old until after the concert. Is there anyway that I can arrange this trip for him as a surprise.
Thank you for your help.

Hello from Germany to Killarney.
We hope that you can help us with our request:
We are planning to travel through south ireland. Our flight goes from Frankfrut Hahn to Kerry airport and we stay in Killarney from 22.2 -1.3.09 in a hotel. From march second on we would love to travel with a camper to be as flexible as possible. On the internet we could not find any camper rental in Killarney or Kerry.
Do you know a place where we can rent a camper?

Thank you very much for your support. Warm greetings, Kerstin Michel

Do you have a link to the Trinity College study and associated map referenced in, “The Irish – more Spanish than Celtic?” Specifically, the article states:
“The TCD study produced a map of Europe with contours linking places that are genetically similar. ”
I would be interested in seeing this map and reading the supporting data.

Je cherche l’adresse mail d’une boutique de cadeaux dans Main Street (en face Christy) dans laquelle j’ai acheté un “ourson irlandais avec le trèfle vert” en peluche en Aout 2009. J’aimerai les contacter pour pouvoir encore acheter la même peluche. D’avance merci.

I am looking for the email address of a gift shop on Main Street (opposite Christy) where I bought a “teddy bear with the Irish shamrock green” in August 2009. I would like to contact them to still buy the same cloth. In advance thank you.
Many thanks.

I’m hoping to interview someone about the Killarney Lakes for The Babel Times, a magazine for English learners. I didn’t see a direct contact form, so I’m hoping you could contact me if it would be possible to interview you, by phone or skype.

Thank you very much in advance.
