Top Ten Hikes



So many of our guests ask us for walking route recommendations so to save you time doing the research we’ve put together this handy guide of our top ten hikes. 

From the famous lakes, to the highest peak and vast expanse of the National Park, Killarney has so much to offer hikers and walkers.

The real work is deciding which trail to take!

We want this handy guide to help you pick a route, lace up your boots and get straight out there into the fresh air. 

All of these trails are easily accessible and right on your doorstep from Dan Linehan’s B&B. 

When you’re all walked out we’ll be waiting for you at Dan Linehan’s Bar to serve you a well deserved beverage! 

We hope you enjoy exploring.
