This was Ireland's first National Park and came into being
in 1932. The mountainous old red sandstone uplands support large
areas of blanket bog, and the remoteness and relative inaccessibility
of some of these areas aids the continued survival of Ireland's
only remaining wild herd of native Red Deer.
Central to Killarney National Park are its three lakes, all inter-linked
but quite different in their respective characters. The lakes support
a large population of Brown Trout, as well as an annual run of Salmon,
and sport angling has been a popular pastime for generations in
Killarney. See our Fishing Page for more information.
