Location information for Killarney

Car rental Killarney


Kerry is a county in the very southwest of Ireland. It is known for its rugged landscape and the Ring of Kerry which runs through it. Killarney is the main tourist resort, which is often the starting point for the route over the Iveragh peninsula. The best way to do the Ring of Kerry is with a rental car, but please, take our advice: go counter clockwise, because most people (and tour buses too) go clockwise. The Killarney National Park is just south of the city. Killarney is a lively town with cozy pubs and good restaurants. That is why many Irish and British spend a weekend there.


Killarney has a population of 15,000.


Killarney lies in the southwest of Ireland in a diverse landscape of mountains, forests and lakes. Southwest of the city is the highest point in Ireland, Mount Carrantuohill (1040 m).


Tourism is Killarney's most important source of income. Furthermore, there is some industry. For example, the German manufacturer Liebherr develops and manufactures container cranes here. When the national government in Dublin was decentralized, Killarney got the Ministry of Arts, Culture and Tourism. Previously, the Ministry of Justice had already been transferred to Killarney.


Kerry Airport (in Irish: Aerfort Chiarraí) is located thirteen kilometers north of Killarney. The airport is easily accessible by rental car. First take the N22 and then the N23; the airport is right next to the road.
The bigger Cork Airport is only half an hour away by rental car when you follow the N22 northeast.

Public Transport

There is no public transport in Killarney. There are bus connections to other places in Ireland. Many people go on a ride called Jaunting Cars (horse and carriage); it's not cheap, but a lot of fun.

Traffic and Parking

During summer Killarney is a busy town and finding a parking space is very difficult then. Fortunately, most hotels have ample parking facilities. You can also park your car at the train station. A rental car is ideal for making excursions. Except for the Ring of Kerry, the roads in this part of Ireland are not busy at all and you will not have any trouble finding your way.


There is a huge range of accommodations in Killarney. Except for Dublin, Killarney has by far the largest number of hotels in Ireland. There is also a big variety, from top class five star hotels to small and simple bed and breakfasts and youth hostels. Killarney is a very popular tourist destination. We therefore recommend you to book your accommodation well in advance, especially if you want to visit County Kerry in summer.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
