The scenic beauty of the area provides residents with opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling and exploring nature. Killarney is a popular tourist destination full of spirit, known for its rich cultural heritage. Living in such a place can expose residents to a vibrant cultural scene, including traditional music, dance and festivals. There are also historical sites like Muckross House and Ross Castle, contributing to the town’s historical charm.

Despite its small size, Killarney is well-connected by road and has good transport links. This makes it easy for residents to travel to nearby cities and explore other parts of Ireland.


The Store:

Specsavers in Killarney is a very established store based in the heart of town with plenty of parking nearby and a longstanding team (four members of the team have been in store for over 15 years!). Partnership couldn’t be easier with just one other partner in Optics who has been the sole director of the store for over 17 years. The store has an independent feel to it with a great reputation and excellent maze (customer survey) results. This store also boasts an immaculate interior due to having a re-brand within the last 12 months.

You will have access to a dedicated Hearcare room and the latest state of the art equipment for you and your team. With little competition in the town, the potential really is enormous. Did we also mention that the store only trades Monday to Saturday and closes on Sundays and Bank Holidays?
