Swimming and trail walking in Killarney.

Hello trip advisor community,

I would like to spend about 7 days swimming and possible some trail walking in Kerry. I do see there is a Leisure Center in Killarney. I'm wondering if anyone knows if there are trails in the area. Since I'm in Ireland for a month I have to be conservative with money. Since I do camp and hike on a regular basis, I wondered if there are hostiles or camp lodges in the area. My trip starts 10/18/13.

Kind regards,

Sheila

There are a number of hostels in the area and Killarney National Park is dotted with trails.

Check here for a range of hostels in the area. I would be inclined to pick those outside the town rather than in the town as they are likely to be less noisy.

The two hostels in Fossa are in a lovely area.

Bean A,

Thank you for all the information. I just spent a week at Acadia Nat'l Park and learned how to read maps and trails, so going through the links will be great.

Enjoy. If the weather stays as warm as it has been this month (it was 18C here today!!) then you are in for a treat. It will be magnificent there.

We're heading down to Killarney from the 26th of this month to the 2nd November. Can't wait.
