    Over 60 acres of garden full of rare and exotic plants and mature woodlands, as well as native wildlife including Sika deer, Irish hares, red squirrels and otters. There are also incredible views to be had of Kilmakilloge Harbour and the Caha Mountains. There are a variety of walks around the garden, each taking half an hour to an hour.

    This privately owned 200-year-old cottage and farm are in Releigh, a village about 10 mins drive from Kenmare. The farm and cottage were once owned and worked by the widow Molly Gallivan, who supported her seven children through not just farming but running a Sibheen, or old Irish speakeasy. They are now a living museum to her life as well other aspects of the area's history. There is a cafe and gift shop onsite.

    One of the most amazing old libraries in all of Europe - it really is like something from Harry Potter! It is also home to the famous illuminated manuscript the Book of Kells, which is on permanent display. Guided tours by students are available and well worth doing.

    Really good tour and a very informative guide. This will not disappoint!

    The cathedral is a majestic building. Its location is perfect, right on the river. It is walking distance from Eyre Square in the centre of Galway.

    The Vintage Kitchen

    The atmosphere is fun, the music is great- you can bring your own for the waiters to put on, and the food is delicious. The menu is varied enough to appeal to all. Exceptional service.

    Hidden away in a beautiful rural location about 15 minutes drive out of Kenmare, the Strawberry Field is a delightful cafe specializing in delectable pancakes - with a wide variety of both savoury and sweet toppings. Plenty of vegetarian options, and gluten-free alternatives are available on request.

    Award-winning restaurant with an emphasis on freshly prepared seasonal, local, organic, and wild food, including the restaurant's own hand-reared pork. A good range of dishes, although nothing too adventerous and an equally good range of wines and local craft beers to match.

    StoneCutters is located in a historic stone cottage on the coast just out of Doolin and is a true family restaurant in the best sense of the term. There is a special children's menu as well as toys and even an outdoor play area. The 'grown-ups' menu is a perfect balance of traditional Irish comfort food and slightly more adventurous choices, so that there is something fo everyone. Outdoor seating for sunny days and excellent value for money.

    A quaint rural style cafe with a small but well-thought out menu that should have something for everyone's taste. All meals are available as a half-portion if you're not that hungry or can't choose between a couple of options!

    Walk along Salthill Promenade

    Salthill Promenade is just over a mile long on the edge of Galway Bay in Salthill. It's a beautiful beach and you can look across the bay the mountains of the Burren and County Clare.

    Must do the Ballycotton Cliff Walk

    Start from Balllycotton. Beautiful scenery, fairly flat and not too physically challenging. Usually you will see seals and lots of birds.

    Don't miss Atlantic Drive on Achill Island

    The drive to achill island is one of the most scenic and picturesque drives I Know. The deserted village offers haunting views of years ago, well worth a day trip.

    Visit St. John the Evangelist Church

    This is a great free few hours. Truly awesome architecture. The grounds are well kept we you're welcome to look around at leisure. Beautiful statues and paintings inside.

    Visit National Botanic Gardens

    This is a beautiful place just outside the city centre of Dublin. It has lovely sculptures located around the grounds and you can often see squirrels running about the grounds. A nice escape without spending any money.

    A town as payment

    The modern town of Kenmare was laid out by the English surveyor, Sir William Petty in 1670. He had been given the area by Oliver Cromwell as part of his payment for the job of mapping Ireland.

    Attractive old-style shops

    There is great shopping in Killarney, and the shops are particularly lovely looking as there is a ban on the usual tacky plastic shop signs, so they are decorated with old fashioned hand-painted signs and colourful window boxes.

    The traditional Irish music capital of the world

    Doolin is widely regarded as the world's epicenter of traditional Irish music. There are three pubs in the village (McGann’s,O’Connors and McDermott’s) that have nightly live music all year round from both local and visiting performers.
