You can also visit Cork to explore its thriving food scene. Killarney National Park, which boasts plenty of scenic trails for hiking and walking, is great for those who wish to enjoy some outdoor recreational activities. If you wish to explore the countryside, booking a cottage may be ideal as it allows you to be closer to nature. Check out the best cottage-style Airbnbs in Ireland.
