Killarney Wins Ireland’s Best Day Out

Killarney Wins Ireland's Best Day Out

The Irish Times announced Killarney National Park in Co. Kerry as the Best Day Out in Ireland. With over 26,000 acres of mountains, forests, rivers, castles, golfing, walking and swimming deer, this park is one of Ireland’s top visits in Co. Kerry. 

The Best Day Out competition asked Irish Times readers to nominate Ireland’s most impressive visitor attractions and outdoor destinations in Ireland. Over 1,900 entries were received for the competition. 

The final shortlist included “The Antrim Coast”, The Barrow Way in Co. Carlow, the Big Day out in Co. Leitrim and Clare Island Adventures. Killarney National Park is one of Ireland’s most visited attractions and we at Quinlan Ireland highly recommend this as part of your vacation to Ireland.

An amazing culinary vacation in Ireland

 An Amazing Culinary Vacation in Ireland hosted by celebrity chef/cookbook author Margaret M. Johnson. See photos and read how our guests got on on this 5-day fantastic vacation in Ireland.

“Our trip began with five rainbows on the first day of site-seeing.  There could be no better foretelling of the fun and magic we would have all week! Margaret put together a perfect itinerary showcasing the best of Ireland from one coast to the next and everything in between.  We definitely tasted and savored the many flavors of Ireland.  I have a new appreciation for so many wonderful Irish foods—foods we cooked ourselves in class or discovered in food markets or tasted in various restaurants and pubs.  But beyond the magnificent and memorable flavors of Ireland, we visited and saw so many important and beautiful Irish landmarks and historical sites.   Tony, our driver and guide, and Margaret were a perfectly matched team. Tony was chock-full of knowledge, be it flora and fauna or history from the start of time to current events.  Between these two experts, we learned so much about Ireland and what we saw.  We also learned a few jokes and key quotes …  Everything from our coach to hotels was top-notch.  The hotels were luxurious if not also historical and beautiful sites themselves.  I can’t say enough about how perfect this trip was.  Thank you, Margaret, for such amazing journey through Ireland!”  

Thank you!
