AS ANY bookworm will tell you, choosing the perfect perch will always enhance your reading experience. And Laura Murphy, Firies, couldn’t have found a more apt spot for enjoying her first read of the Killarney Magazine than a rock on scenic Lough Lein.

As she leafed through this free, glossy publication – Killarney’s first premium tourism guide – Laura felt at one with her surroundings, which are beautifully captured in its pages.

Laura and her twin sister Sarah launched the new Killarney Magazine last week in a photoshoot with Sally MacMonagle and it has certainly proved a double-whammy success itself, appealing to both locals and visitors alike.

The team at Killarney Advertiser is delighted to present readers in Killarney and from across the globe with this collection of top-class features and eye-catching photographs.

A riveting read, this glossy, free magazine showcases our town to dazzling effect and is a page-turningly good read, sharing as it does sought-after insider knowledge and hidden gems. “We noticed that there was no premium visitor magazine that captured the uniqueness of the our beautiful town. It is very much of Killarney featuring local writers, photographers and designers. Feedback has been amazing since we published last week,” said Aidan Quirke, business development manager of Killarney Advertiser and Killarney Magazine. “We are planning for next season’s publication already.”

Killarney Magazine offers a trip back in time thanks to illuminating pieces that history buffs will enjoy (for instance, Breda Joy’s wonderful overview of the history of Muckross House).

But it is also something that will help you keep your finger on the pulse with insider tips and information on making the most of a visit to Killarney.

We hope we will also tempt you to veer off the beaten track to make your experience of our town and it surrounds your very own.

An excellent resource for the traveller and a handy reference guide for local residents, Killarney Magazine emerged from a pool of local talent and it features leading writers from what is a world-renowned literary and cultural hotbed.

The magazine, designed by Damien Switzer, has been distributed throughout Killarney, including hotels, the tourist office and a host of visitor attractions. You can also check out its website at

While Killarney made it through to the last five, in the end it was Waterford City which claimed the overall title of Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021.

While the city was the unanimous choice of the judging panel it had to beat off stiff competition from Killarney and three other shortlisted locations: Clonakilty, Co Cork, Galway city and the village of Glaslough in Co Monaghan.

Among the things which impressed the judges about Waterford were its beautiful buildings, its liveability, its pedestrian friendly public space, its weather, and its easy access to the Comeragh Mountains and the Copper Coast.

The Chair of the judging panel Conor Goodman congratulated Killarney on its fine showing in the competition.

“Given the level of entries and the extremely high standard of those entries, making it into the Best 5 Places to Live in Ireland really is a wonderful achievement which I’m sure everyone in Killarney and Kerry is really proud of. We were delighted with the level of interest in the competition and would like to thank everyone who nominated a place or who engaged with us on it.”

The Irish Times Best Place to Live in Ireland contest, which is supported by Randox Health, began in June.

In total 470 locations were nominated by more than 2,400 people from all 32 counties for the title of ‘Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021’.
