Lakes of Killarney
On the west side of Killarney town, you will find The McGillycuddy's Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland which rise to a height of over 1000 metres. At the foot of these mountains you will find the world famous Lakes of Killarney, part of the amazing Killarney National Park, 25,000 acres that wraps itself around the town.
There are three lakes:
Lough Leane, also known as The Lower Lake
Muckross Lake, also known as The Middle Lake
You can take a leisurely waterbus tour of the Lough Leane, an energetic kayak on the lakes or go to one of many vantage points such as Aghadoe and take stunning pictures where many iconic pictures have been taken and shared around the world.
