Things to do and see in Kerry
Discover the magic of Muckross Traditional Farms which preserves in real life the farming traditions of rural Ireland in the past. Three separate working farms, with a range of farm animals including traditional Kerry cows and farm machinery will help you re-live the past.
Muckross Traditional Farms takes you back to a time before the advent of electricity when all work was carried out using traditional methods. Meet and chat with the farmers as they go about their daily work in the houses, on the land, and with the animals.
Kerry has some of the most beautiful and most challenging golf courses Ireland has to offer. Why not try Mahony’s Point which offers spectacular views of the famous Killarney lakes overlooked by the McGillicuddy Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland.
The final three holes are breathtaking as you play towards the lake with the 18th described as “one of the most memorable holes in golf”, a par three of nearly 200 yards that requires a huge carry across the corner of the lake.
If 18 holes is too much, why not try Ross Golf Course a 9 hole parkland course designed and built inside and around Killarney Racecourse.
