It is a few years since we visited this special part of Ireland with its combination of friendly people and the spectacular scenery of the Killarney National Park.  Having taken the ferry across to Ireland our first night will be at a hotel close to the port.  The next day we make our way to Killarney via Middleton where we have a guided tour of the Jameson distillery and sample some of their whiskey, of course.  When we arrive in Killarney you will see that the The Lake Hotel is in beautiful grounds on the lake shore offering lovely lake views. We will see some of the best scenery the area has to offer with a full day excursion taking us around the beautiful Ring of Kerry with an Irish guide telling us all about the history and folklore of the region.  We will also visit Muckross House, gardens and traditional farms with a guided tour of the house on arrival.  No visit to Killarney would be complete without a ride on a jaunting cart with lively quips from your Irish jarvey and we do this before a lake cruise.  We will also hope to experience Ireland’s traditional music, song and dance when we see a live performance of the acclaimed show “The Celtic Steps” at Killarney Racecourse. Our last night will be spent at Ferrycarrig Hotel, just a short drive from Rosslare.  After an early breakfast we depart for the port and our return crossing to Pembroke and then on to Sussex.  

The Lake Hotel has been owned and run by the same family for over 100 years.  The hotel has a special location on the shores of Killarney Lower Lake & National Park.. The hotel has 2 AA Rosettes for the quality of its food and Head Chef, Noel Enright, won the award of “Head Chef of the Year” at the Irish Hotel Awards in 2019. The hotel has Fitness Centre with steam room, sauna, gymn and outdoor hot tub.

Ferrycarrig Hotel is also a family owned hotel.  This 4 star hotel has views over the River Slaney estuary and has 2 AA Rosettes for the quality of its restaurant food.  Its location, not too far from Rosslare, makes it an ideal hotel for our first and last nights in Ireland.
