The town of Killorglin is situated in the heart of Kerry, along the Laune River. This lively town located on a hill is best known for one of Ireland's oldest, longest and probably most unusual celebrated festivals - Puck Fair. The fair is held without fail on 10th, 11th and 12th August every year with 12 hours of free family street entertainment. The fair honours an event during Cromwellian Ireland when a stampede of wild goats ran through the town warning the residents of the approach of Cromwell's Army. To celebrate this event a goat is captured and enthroned on a pedestal. The town really celebrates this historical event in style with a number of other events held in the town as well as the capturing of the goat. These additional events include ' The Guinness Busking Competition', Open air concerts and displays of dancing.
Killorglin is still a peaceful setting for a holiday as the area has many quiet roads and wonderful walks to enjoy.
