Closer than you think
So we’ve convinced you that you want to come to the Reeks District? Luckily getting here from the UK, central Europe and the USA is a piece of cake.
The closest airport is Kerry Airport which is a 20-minute drive from Killorglin. It is currently served by flights from Dublin (Aer Lingus Regional) and London Luton, London Stansted, Frankfurt-Hahn, Berlin-Schönefeld, Alicante and Faro (all Ryanair).
Shannon Airport is a two-hour drive from Killorglin. It has year-round flights from a wide range of destinations, including regional airports in the UK, Spain, Portugal, Germany and Poland, as well as Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Toronto.
Also a two-hour drive away, Cork Airport receives flights from the UK, Portugal, Spain, France, Holland, Austria, Germany and Poland.
Finally, Dublin Airport is a four-hour drive away with flights from a plethora of international destinations.
At around 30km wide and 40km long, the Reeks District is big on adventures, but small on space. You can get from Cronin’s Yard, the car park from where most of the summits of Carrauntoohil start, to one of Ireland’s best surfing beaches at Inch in less than an hour’s drive.
While many will hire a car when visiting, others may still want to search the area by public transport – and there’s always the need for a taxi if you decide to try one of our local hostelries of an evening.
