We stayed in Killarney for three days and decided we would return at the first opportunity.  Our camp site was just a mile from the bustling town centre with its music filled pubs and restaurants and two miles in the opposite direction was Killarney National Park, 26,000 acres of lakes, mountains, woods and parkland, crisscrossed by walkways and cycle paths.  The area was stunningly beautiful, especially when the sun was shining.
