Lakes of Killarney

The Lakes of Killarney are a scenic attraction located in Killarney National Park near Killarney, County Kerry, in Ireland. They consist of three lakes:

Lough Leane (from Irish Loch Léin, meaning 'lake of learning') is the largest and northernmost of the three lakes. Leane is dotted with small forested islands, including Innisfallen Island, which holds the remains of the ruined Innisfallen Abbey.

Muckross Lake, also known as Middle Lake or Torc Lake, Muckross is just south of Lough Leane. The two are separated by a small peninsula, crossed by a stone arched bridge called Brickeen Bridge.

Upper Lake is the smallest of the three lakes, and the southernmost. It is separated from the others by a winding channel some 4 km (2.5 mi) long. The entrance to the channel requires passengers to disembark and portage around a shallow rapids traversable by the empty tourboat.
