    Tucked on to the south western corner of Ireland, and with a coastline so crinkly that even fjord designers would be jealous, County Kerry is perhaps one of the most popular and picturesque of any of the Irish counties. Kerry has every reason to be a well-loved destination for visitors, with interesting features and stunning scenery, much of it to be found off the main tourist routes, where travellers can experience some of the finest views, foods and fun that Ireland has to offer.

    Bordered only by County Limerick in the east and County Cork to the south east, with a long North Atlantic coastline, Kerry's proximity to the Gulf Stream ensures that the county enjoys an unusually mild climate.

    Things to do in County Kerry
    The northern extremities of Kerry include the small ferry port at Tarbert, where travellers can take a shortcut across the estuary of the River Shannon over into County Clare.

    The Ring of Kerry (or Iveragh Peninsula, to give it its correct name) is perhaps the most famous tourist trail anywhere in the country, stretching over a 110 mile circuitous route, with some of the finest beaches, Iron Age forts and ancient monasteries to be found anywhere in Ireland. To the east, on the inland aspect of the Peninsular, lie the splendidly-named mountain range of MacGillycuddy's Reeks, and the beautiful Lakes of Killarney.

    On a slightly smaller scale, to the north of Iveragh, the magical Dingle Peninsula is a more discrete gem for visitors who want to explore beyond the attractions of the Ring of Kerry route. Windsurf at the appropriately windswept Bantry Bay, visit the amazing and ancient Gallarus Oratory, or swim with Fungi the Dolphin in Dingle Harbour.

    In the far south of Kerry, the Beara Peninsula is half shared with the neighbouring county of Cork, giving way to a more genteel and tamed natural environment, and countryside aspect.

    Top Destinations

    DingleThe pretty town of Dingle is reached by crossing the Conor Pass, the highest mountain pass in Ireland, and the narrow and weaving road really gives you the feeling that you are squeezing through the slender gap to reach the bustling but homely port nestling beyond.

    Gallarus Oratory – One of the most famous landmarks on the Dingle Peninsula, and situated close to four storey tower of Gallarus Castle, the Oratory is an astonishing, exquisite little building, constructed out of carefully-laid stone to resemble an upturned boat. Although there is some confusion as to the age of the structure, ranging from the 6th to the 12th century, there is no doubting the beauty of this well preserved chapel. The Oratory is also architecturally significant, as it represents a transition in design, between the beehive huts of the earlier period and the later rectangular churches with which we are now more familiar.

    The Skellig Islands – Halfway round the Ring of Kerry, from Valentia, the most westerly harbour in Europe, the triangular peaks of the two Skellig Islands are a tantalising sight, with steep, jagged rocks surrounded by the crashing waves. Little Skellig is a bird sanctuary, particularly noted for its population of Northern Gannets, and human landing is not permitted. However, visitors are allowed on the neighbouring island of Great Skellig (also known as Skellig Michael); boat trips take travellers over to explore the rock and to climb up to the ancient monastic site at the summit. From the tiny landing stage a road leads to Christ's Saddle, the only patch of green on this otherwise inhospitable rocky island. From here, walkers can make their way along the path which leads to the arched stone remains of St Finian's Abbey, where, amongst the ruins lie six complete drystone beehive huts, which have miraculously managed to survive for centuries despite the often harsh conditions and frequently foul coastal weather.

    MacGillycuddy's Reeks – Fabulously named after a local clan chief who once owned the land, and stretching imposingly over twelve miles of County Kerry, inland from the Iveragh Peninsula, and close to the lakes of Killarney, this noted mountain range includes the highest peak in Ireland, Corrán Tuathail. The area offers a varied selection of walks and climbing options to visitors throughout the year.

    The Kerry Way – One of the best ways of exploring the finest that Kerry has to offer is by taking the popular 200km signposted walking trail, which runs from the busy town of Killarney, through to the wilderness of the Black Valley, and crosses a wide variety of terrain, over and around much of the Ring of Kerry.
