Lough Leane :: V9388

Situated within the Killarney National Park, Lough Leane is largest and northernmost of the three lakes of Killarney LinkExternal link. Covering an area of approximately 4700 acres, it is also the largest freshwater lake in the region. The lake is in a low valley, 66 feet above sea level; the River Laune drains Lough Leane to the north-west towards Killorglin and into Dingle Bay.

Killarney National Park :: V9384

Killarney National Park (Irish: Páirc Náisiúnta Chill Airne), near the town of Killarney, County Kerry, was the first national park in Ireland, created when Muckross Estate was donated to the Irish Free State in 1932.

The park has since been substantially expanded and now encompasses more than 25000 acres of diverse ecology, including the Lakes of Killarney, oak and yew woodlands of international importance, and mountain peaks. It has the only red deer herd on mainland Ireland and the most extensive covering of native forest remaining in Ireland.
