Where you’ll be

Killorglin, County Kerry, Ireland

The lake lies at the foot of the northern lower slopes of the MacGillycuddy's Reeks at the head of the Caragh Valley. It is a wonderfully tranquil location midway between the bustling town of Killorglin to the North East and the charming village of Glenbeigh to the South West. It is an oasis just off the Ring of Kerry and Wild Atlantic Way and is a idyllic gateway to the highlands of Kerry and its magnificent natural experiences. Caragh Lake and River are an angler's delight with wonderful salmon and trout fising. Walking enthusiasts are extremely well catered for with a myriad of nearby loop, linear and beach walks, the famous Kerry Way, and a labyrinth of quaint lakeside, river and wooded trails. Caragh Lake caters for almost all sporting enthusiasts with rock climbing, hill walking, fishing, horse riding, water sports, hunting and all within a most staggering setting of mountain and lake views. The beautiful beach of Rossbeigh is a short 10 min drive away also. Killorglin is also home to some excellent dining options with some very characteristic Irish pubs.
