Killarney + June + rain = an insane amount of mosquitos. You don’t believe us? Check out our Youtube video for a shot of Marc covered in mosquitoes.
Needless to say, these two hikes were not very pleasant. It was raining, incredibly hot and humid and the bugs were terrible. At the end of the hike, we had more water in our rain gear from sweating than we did on the outside. We headed to the Killarney shop and purchased some much needed bug nets. These were a life saver! If you don’t mind getting wet, we would suggest wearing a bug net shirt instead of dousing yourself in bug spray or covering yourself in layers.
Here is a link to the bug jackets we purchased. We have not tested any other brand because this one worked perfectly.
