Itinerary

If you arrive early enough at your cosy B&B in Killarney (located within walking distance of town). We do recommend you take a bike trip and start exploring the amazing Killarney National Park. Muckross Abbey, Muckross House & Gardens, Torc Waterfall and Ross Castle are all easily accessible by bike – maps will be provided and E-Bikes are available on request if booked in advance (please let us know on booking if you would like an E-Bike). A wonderful meal at a renowned restaurant in Killarney including a bottle of wine, will carry you into the evening.

Today you’ll explore the Killarney National Park in depth  after a hearty breakfast. Drive to Muckross House and Gardens and park your car in the carpark before you walk toward Dinis Cottage. The walk will take you just over an hour. Originally built as a hunting lodge, Dinis Cottage has hosted the likes of Queen Victoria and her cohorts! Today though, it is you who will be served, and you can enjoy tea and scones while overlooking the lake. From Dinis Pier we have organized a boat to bring you the 20-minute journey across Muckross Lake back toward Muckross House. From there you explore the house and the extensive gardens or just wander nearby to Dundag beach for a quick dip if you’re feeling brave!

*If you feel the walk is too much for you, we do offer the option to take the boat on a return trip to Dinis and back at no extra charge.

After all that exploring, a well-deserved respite is in order. Make a quick stop at Celtic Whiskey Bar where you can collect your luxury take-away picnic. Then it’s off to Ireland’s own outdoor rustic peat baths for a dip in the bog (don’t worry, they are pre-heated). You’re first adventure will be climbing into the huge barrels! This experience will completely turn your perception of a bog on its head. Mud baths are popular around the world and lauded as having fantastic health benefits. Filled with vitamins and nutrient rich acids it also has anti-aging effects ensuring your skin will be aglow with its detoxifying and nourishing effects. Its anti-inflammatory properties are ideal to recover from your long hike through the hills.

In line with Covid-19 protocols, only two people at a time can attend ensuring you will have the whole experience to yourselves!

Relax into the day with a luxurious breakfast before heading into Killarney town for a browse around the town. Any last minute shopping can be done today as the majority of shops remain open, even on Sundays. J.M. Reidy’s on Main Street take walk-ins only for lunch and their outdoor seating area is great on a sunny (or any weather) day. Its old world character will charm you to come back again.
