KILLARNEY is embarking on an exciting space odyssey to maintain its position as the country’s premier tourist destination.

The town is boldly going to the great outdoors to showcase its out of this world choice of spectacular attractions and adventure pursuits with people everywhere invited not only to visit but to breathe Killarney and all it has to offer.

The innovative SPACE to initiative has been devised by Killarney Chamber of Tourism and Commerce, in association with Kerry County Council, and it’s a loud and clear shout-out to remind everybody that Ireland’s favourite holiday destination is again open for business in the new normal that is post Covid-19.


“One of Killarney’s most precious and valuable assets is space and we can deliver on offering great outdoor adventures in a manner that simply cannot be matched,” said Chamber President Paul Sherry.

“The campaign is focused on staycations for the summer of 2020 and visitors who will be enjoying day trips in the coming weeks”.

Through the use of stunning drone footage, creative stills, innovative design and the spoken word, the SPACE to the campaign highlights the brilliant range of outdoor activities, scenery, experiences, dining options, places to stay and shops to visit with a traditional Killarney welcome awaiting all.

The new initiative expresses the true value of Killarney as a place to explore, a place to chill, a place live, a place to roam, a place to pause and a place to breathe but, most of all, as a place to visit and a place to enjoy.

The innovative campaign is very much in keeping with Kerry County Council’s Safe Destination programme which has seen numerous local business owners and staff enrolling for a special training programme that equips them with all the skills and knowledge required to ensure visitors safely observe social distancing regulations and etiquette.

The SPACE tocampaign coincides with the launch of an interactive new version of the website, where visitors can get full details on everything they need to know about their upcoming trip to Killarney.
