The very best thing by far about travelling in Ireland is the warmth and welcome you'll get from the Irish people.
With genuine curiosity we'll ask you where you're from, where you're going, who are your 'people'; where are they from.......it's something built into our genes; we'll find those 6 degrees of separation regardless of how long it takes and in the meantime we'll have a few drinks just to make it sociable!
And in Killarney there's plenty of places for solo travellers to enjoy the local craic, like Reidy's
pub with regular music and great atmosphere,The Grand, who manage to squeeze in Trad music by the door, a band in the bar and a nightclub at the back! Or simply try one of the many other traditional pubs in town like Murphys or Linehans.
We also have some of the best festivals and events outside of Dublin like Puck Fair
in nearby Killorglin, it's one of the oldest fairs in Ireland, no one knows quite how old but there's references dating back to the 1700's.
Other major events are the Gathering
in March; a traditional music festival held over 4 days. Ring of Kerry cycle
race in July each year which is a 175km race involving thousands of participants. BikeFest in June, Rally of the Lakes in August, Christmas in Killarney and many more.
If it's solitude and reflection you're after there are 10,000km of national park on our doorstep and hiring a bicycle and taking a trip around the lakes can take up an hour or all day depending on how fit and reflective you really feel!
Ireland is one of the safest and friendliest places to travel if you're on your own and The Heights Hotel the perfect base. We'll make sure you get that warm welcome and are happy to help with any ongoing travel plans you might have.
And to top it all off The Heights won't charge you a single supplement for travelling alone.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
