Ring of Kerry Red Deer
Red Deer can be found in many parts of the Ring of Kerry but the main herds can be found in the Muckross / Torc area near Killarney. Large numbers can also be easily seen in Knockreer Estate opposite the Killarney Cathedral. We like the Muckross / Torc area along with Mangerton Mountain and the Old Kenmare road, they are in a more natural environment in the lowlands but also in mountainous areas in a more natural environment. The second week in October is around the time the annual “Deer Rut” takes place and there are some great spots to observe and for photography.
