Kerry County

Killarney National Park: The first National Park in Ireland, it occupies over 25,000 acres in diverse ecosystems. It has been noted for the famous Lakes of Killarney, McGillycuddy Reeks, and ancient oak woods of Muckross. Muckross House and Abbey, situated in this very park, help to retrace in the ideal setting of Irish history from the 19th-century building.

Ring of Kerry: Beautiful drive taking you around 179km of attractive views that encompass mountain, lake, and Atlantic Ocean. Top stops on route include the Kerry Bog Village Museum, the Skellig Experience, and Waterville—long-standing favorite holiday spot of Charlie Chaplin.

Dingle Peninsula: The beauty of the very varied countryside and archaeological sites gives a fame to the Dingle Peninsula. This is also a very strong bastion of Irish language and culture. The charming little town of Dingle is a virtual haven for musicians and artists, while a drive around Slea Head offers views across to the Blasket Islands and beehive huts once occupied by 6th-century Christian monks.

Skellig Michael. Yes, that’s the name of the remote, rocky outcrop, famous as a location for the Star Wars movies. It also has a world-renowned well-preserved 6th-century monastic settlement on top of its summit. Accessible by boat, weather permitting, it’s a spiritual journey back in time.

Gap of Dunloe: This is nothing else but a narrow pass of the mountains cut through between the MacGillycuddy Reeks and Purple Mountain. The visitors to the gap may walk or cycle through the gap or take a traditional jaunting car ride along the gap to admire the beauty of the countryside in Kerry.

Ross Castle: 15th-century tower house on Lough Leane’s shore within Killarney National Park offering guided tours telling its history related to the legend of O’Donoghue Ross.

The Kerry Way: Ireland’s longest signposted walking trail, over 200 kilometers of way-marked paths through some of Kerry’s most beautiful parts—ideal for those who love to be close to nature.

Valentia Island: Something so much more for its geological importance and as the land on which the first transatlantic cable was successfully laid, Valentia Island combines both historical curiosity and beauty from rare Tetrapod Track footprints to panoramas over Geokaun Mountain.

With warm hospitality from Kerry, it’s a place for every individual, from the most adventurous soul to anyone seeking peace and tranquility.
