Killarney locals are not only patriotic, but highly hospitable when there are more hotel beds in Killarney than anywhere else in Ireland - bar Dublin that is. If that doesn’t have you convinced that Killarney is a top stop for college breaks and tours in Ireland then the fact that it has been voted as Ireland’s number one holiday destination on Trip-advisor might change your mind. Killarney is much more than a hot spot for American tourists however.
If you’re looking for something further afield or to really immerse yourself in renowned Irish culture and scenery then Killarney could be a perfect place to do so. Located in the ring of Kerry, the region boasts Ireland’s largest mountain (or hill depending on what way you look at it). The first movie to ever be filmed in Ireland was made at Killarney which says a lot for the area’s beauty - looking at you film students. If that isn’t enough incentive for you, Irish-German star Michael Fassbender hails from ‘Heaven’s Reflex’. It’s undeniable that there has to be something special about a place that nurtures people like Fassbender. Who knows, you might have the next big thing serve you stew in one of the local eateries.
