Killarney, Ireland shops, streets, pubs and restaurants



Killarney, Ireland, in County Kerry, is a beautiful place to visit for at least three big reasons. First of all, because it’s in Ireland, then there is the town itself, which is quite charming, and it’s famous for the lakes and lush natural beauty all around it, part of the Killarney National Park.
So perhaps the main reason the visitors come here is for the natural beauty of the lakes and the famous ride around the peninsula called the Ring of Kerry, but here you will see that the town itself is also a great reason to come and stay and spend some time.

More than a dozen of the pubs and restaurants feature Irish music on a daily basis, such as Scruffy’s Bar.
Killarney is the most popular town in the country for visitors, outside of Dublin, and in this program you will see why.
Killarney is in County Kerry, just about three hours from Dublin by car or train.
It’s a fairly small town with just three main streets, and it’s about 800 meters from one end to the other. Population is just 15,000 people, and yet there’s plenty to see and do. The streets are filled with really good shops, and some excellent restaurants, and a lot of pubs with food, conversation drinks and music.
Another special feature of the town is that most of the shops and restaurants are family-owned rather than being part of a big chain, and the typical big high fancy stores that you see all over the world. These shops have their own unique character and the people who work there are friendly.
Our visit happened in the month of May, which is considerably less-crowded in the summer. Perhaps one of the only problems about Killarney is that it’s too popular, and it could get a little congested if you’re here in the peak season of June and July. And yet the weather in the summer is really quite lovely. That’s what brings people here. Ireland does not usually get very hot. Of course you’re going to have some rain, the most famous element of Irish weather. That’s what keeps it green, keeps the streets clean.
Killarney does have nice wide sidewalks in the downtown area, with trees and some benches, and the shops each seem to be unique. It’s not like going to a big shopping mall with a diverse mix of shops, restaurants and pubs.
Cars drive down the street, so this section is not a pedestrian zone, but with this layout, it’s easy to take a comfortable stroll.
Some other Irish towns have a pedestrian zone, such as in Galway, and Kinsale, and parts of Dublin, but most towns don’t.
Around the corner you’ll get to Plunkett Street, which is a little different – its more narrow, it’s one lane, and you see people are just strolling in the road. Occasionally it is reserved just for pedestrians. It’s much more friendly to people out strolling. Hardly any cars come down Plunkett and when they do, they’ll drive slowly, so it’s very safe.
At the end Plunkett merges into College Street, which is also a very nice retail neighborhood. Being so pedestrian friendly, it supports a nice range of shops and restaurants, and there are even some AirB&Bs that you could rent here.
We’re going to drop in on a handful of restaurants and talk to the owners and workers, and get a feeling for the food and the place.

  1. Denis. I am from Killarney. I saw your video from 1995 about my town. I'm glad you like it and made it back. It's sad to see the difference the coronavirus is having, for now. I live in Dublin. I saw my father and 2 nephews in your video now.

  2. Hats off to you Dennis, I am Irish and I can not overstate how interesting and informative your guide videos are, better than those offerings from our TV producers. Thank you!

  3. We absolutely love Killarney!!!! My husband and I were in Ireland in late June, early July 2015 for our life time dream trip!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️🇺🇸
