County Kerry

County Kerry epitomises the picture-postcard image of southern Ireland. The untouched natural beauty of the place is portrayed in its mountains, beaches and lakes, providing a wonderful holiday location for your cottage in Ireland; to see an extensive selection of accommodation please take a look at our cottages in County Kerry.

This Celtic kingdom is filled with snow-capped mountain summits, glacial lakes, medieval ruins, deserted archipelagos, secluded hamlets, blustery but beautiful beaches, and towns where traditional live music can be heard.

Kerry is one of Ireland''s most mountainous regions and is the location for both Carrauntoohil and Mount Brandon, two of the three highest mountains in the country. Its Atlantic-facing coastline boasts numerous dramatic peninsulas and inlets, and islands such as the World Heritage Site of Skellig Michael, with its cliffside medieval monastery, just across the dolphin-dotted bay.

This gem in the south west of Ireland is home to Killarney, one of the country''s most famous tourist hotspots; a colourful town with a good choice of galleries, independent shops, museums, cafes and restaurants. Take the local guided tours or hop onto one of the traditional jaunting cars - pony and traps driven by ''Jarveys'' full of outrageous yarns.

Close by is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty known as the Lakes of Killarney and the 10,000-hectare Killarney National Park forming the heart of its attraction for visitors. Explore by foot or by boat all that the vast and awe-inspiring national park has to offer.

The area''s climate is surprisingly mild thanks to a part of the Gulf Stream known as the North Atlantic Current flowing nearby, and subtropical plants thrive in the area. This can make a dramatic contrast to the snow-capped peaks which sit majestically on the horizon.

Its outlying position has meant that Kerry has escaped outside cultural influences over the decades, making it a haven for those interested in experiencing a taste of the real Ireland, from the traditional language, friendly people and food to local music and dance.

The area is a walkers'' and cyclists'' paradise, boasting the world-famous walking routes of the Kerry, Dingle and Beara Ways and the Iveragh Peninsula’s iconic 179-mile Ring of Kerry route for cyclists and tourists alike.

In north Kerry there’s great surfing along the Atlantic coast and the Tralee Bay Wetlands Centre is the perfect spot for marine and wildlife.
