Kenmare is located 24km from Parknasilla and is a haven of tranquillity offering a wide range of activities from shopping & golfing to trekking & eating.
A charming little town of some 2000 people dating from 1670, Kenmare is one of Ireland’s few planned towns. Surrounded by both the coastal drives of the Ring of Kerry and Ring of Beara, Kenmare is blessed with such an idyllic location. The town is listed as a Heritage Town and its many quaint pubs and coffee shops are traditional with brightly coloured facades that just make you want to relax and browse.
Few places offer as much as Kenmare. That may be one of the reasons Forbes has selected Kenmare as one of the Top Ten Places in the World to Retire To.
