Rich in history, architecture, and beauty, Killarney, Ireland appears on vacation guides and maps as a favorite tourist destination. With horse drawn carriage rides showcasing Killarney’s National Park, shops beautifully displaying wares, and ancient history pervading lovely architecture, lucky travelers can certainly choose many attractions. St. Mary’s Cathedral Church, located approximately half a mile from the town’s center, emanates comfort and peace and should appear on any traveler’s itinerary.

St. Mary’s Catholic Church’s construction started in 1842, but owning to the 1848 Great Famine, the cathedral did not reach completion until 1855. Unfortunately, the original interior has little remnants. However, the cathedral still holds history that captures entrants’ mind and fascination, and the church does not require an admission fee and encourages visitors to attend mass.

Conveniently located in Killarney’s center, a stay at the Scott’s Hotel opens numerous possibilities for tourists to eat, shop, and experience Irish life. Not only does Scott’s middle location give easy access to many featured sights, but also the hotel costs only $84 a night.

Travelers should exercise caution, however, when they decide to dine out. Often times, hotels’ and restaurants’ morning breakfast items appear normal and ordinary. Many restaurants or hotels offer porridge, bacon, sausage, ham, eggs (normally poached, but chefs take requests), coffee, milk, and juice.

Nevertheless, the similarities stop there, and sometimes tourists find their beverages taste unusual. Although coffee tastes extremely strong and bitter and juices have an astringent and sour flavor, still restaurants and hotels offer many unique drink choices for visitors. Moreover, many visitors remark that the food dishes have an almost tough texture with a peppery flavor.

Since Killarney locates close to a lake, fish appears on a restaurant menu quite often, usually Wild Atlantic Salmon and Brown Trout. If travelers do not wish to challenge their taste buds (or their bravery), then at least three different pizza chains operate in Killarney.

Food aside, visitors can explore this delightful town with numerous beautiful sights, lively citizens, and several shops. Unlike many dull and boring locations, Killarney, Ireland truly permeates with a sense of exhilaration and excitement.

A travel opportunity to a truly wonderful place as Killarney should immediately excite any travelers and encourage them to pack their suitcases!.
