The principal town in this parish is Farranfore (Irish: An Fearann Fuar, meaning "the cold land"). The town is situated on the N22 road approximately midway between Tralee and Killarney. Farranfore came into existence as a turnpike; a gate at the cross-roads in the village marking the boundary of the lands of the Earls of Kenmare.
Farranfore is notable for its nearby airport, known as Kerry Airport and there is a railway station also, see picture above.
