About the location


Rathmore 7.5 miles; Killarney 17 miles.

Ballydesmond is a small vibrant village located in the centre of Sliabh Luachra. Ballydesmond is in the diocese of Kerry but more than half the parish is in County Cork because the river Blackwater separates the two counties and it flows through the parish. The village is well serviced with shops, pubs, a takeaway and a restaurant. Just a few miles down the road is the lively town of Rathmore, known for its wonderful traditional music and culture, and also offers a good selection of shops, along with a few pubs where you are guaranteed the warmest of welcomes to accompany a refreshing drink. Why not visit Rathmore's farmers' market, which is held each Saturday, and pick up some delicious local produce? Only a short drive away is the vibrant city of Killarney, which is bursting with attractions to suit all ages and tastes, along with Killarney's National Park and the stunning Ring of Kerry.
