      Seabirds gather in enormous numbers to breed on the cliffs. Look out for choughs, nightjars and osprey too. Scoters — black sea ducks which look a little like moorhens — love the Kerry coastal waters and flock in massive numbers, up to 10, at a time off Rossbeigh Strand. There is a restaurant in front of it. Rowing[ edit ] There are six active rowing clubs in the town, who share a common history in Ireland's oldest surviving regatta, the Killarney Regatta, which is held annually on the first or second Sunday in July. The oak woods are survivors of the great forest that once covered the whole of Ireland.

      Cuckoos, swifts and swallows are a sign that the weather is changing. The view is absolutely breath-taking. The club has a strong youth side and adult side and competes regularly. The club purchased their own ground in and have invested in their facilities since then.

      Size: 41 square miles square kilometers Did You Know? Other species worthy of note include the Pine marten, a rare and secretive predator that has become more widespread in the National Park in recent times, particularly since the release of additional animals into the National Park. The Killarney fern Trichomanes speciosum is only found in the park.
