The Kingdom of Kerry - Top 5 Attractions 

Facing the broad Atlantic ocean, majestic Kerry is a place of breathtaking scenery where you’ll be enchanted by the wealth of nature’s treasures; from heritage centres to Ireland’s two highest mountains ‘Carrantoohil’ and ‘Mount Brandon’ and Ireland’s highest pass ‘The Conor Pass’. 

Kerry is a place for lovers of all the good things in life; from the Lake District surrounding Killarney National Park, to the spectacular scenic drives on the Dingle and Ring of Kerry peninsulas. North Kerry, genius in literature, theatre, music, art and storytelling is also the proud home to Ireland’s National Folk Theatre. And of course, the true Irish culture is alive in the Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) areas of Kerry, where traditional Irish music, dance and song come to life. 

Things to Do

1. Ring of Kerry

For many people around the world, the Ring of Kerry drive encapsulates their image of Ireland. The spectacular scenery, dramatic coastline, colourful towns and villages and ancient archaeological treasures have been featured in postcards, film, poetry and song. Each twist and turn on the road will reveal new sights - windswept cliffs, breathtaking scenery, spectacular lakes, rich flora and fauna, green and yellow chequered hills and unspoilt beaches.

2. The Dingle Peninsula

Peace and tranquility are synonymous with the Dingle Peninsula. Life moves at an unhurried pace, but the local people are quick to offer you the opportunity to share their unique culture and heritage. 

An Daingean (Dingle), a beautiful and charming fishing port, is the most westerly town in Europe and a most memorable destination. Gaily painted houses and busy streets lead you to the harbour, where you can meet Fungi, a playful bottle-nosed dolphin who cavorts for the enjoyment of everyone.

3. The Gap of Dunloe

A breathtaking gap between Purple Mountain faces - horizontal plates of sheer rock that tilt down toward green and watery abundance - the Gap of Dunloe is a jewel set within the highest mountain range in Ireland. A river runs through the gap, with grassy banks for sitting, and picturesque bridges to cross. This is a place to walk, fingers intertwined with your lover's hand, or to be wheeled in a carriage drawn by Klidesdale horses.

4. Muckross House

Situated in Killarney National Park, Muckross House and Gardens are among the most popular of Irish visitor attractions. Today, many of the rooms in this magnificent mansion have been restored to their original Victorian splendour. Between the months of April and July, Muckross Gardens are spectacularly adorned with the red and pink flowers of mature Rhododendrons. An Arboretum, containing many trees from the Southern Hemisphere, was established here in 1972. 

Muckross Traditional Farms are situated adjacent to Muckross House. These working farms recreate and portray the traditional farming methods, and way of life, of a typical local, rural community of the 1930s. 

5. Golf

With an unspoilt landscape and an ideal climate Kerry boasts some of the best golf courses in the world, from the great 18 hole championship parkland courses such as Killarney and the Ring of Kerry to the internationally renowned links courses such as Ballybunion, Ceann Sibéal (Dingle), Waterville, Tralee and Dooks. There are many other exceptional courses equally worthy of a visit, offering exceptional value to the visitor and some pleasant surprises.
