Top 5 things to see in Kerry | County Kerry

Dingle Peninsula stretches 30 miles (48 kilometres) into the Atlantic Ocean from Ireland’s south-west coast. Once cited as ‘the most beautiful place on earth’ by the National Geographic. The Dingle Peninsula has some of the most spectacular mountain and coastal scenery in Ireland. It attracts climbers, walkers and trekkers from all over the world but still remains quiet and largely unspoilt.

The Skellig Rocks, Skellig Michael and Little Skellig, are towering sea crags rising from the Atlantic Ocean just off the coast in County Kerry. Its here where a group of Ascetic monks set up a monastery between the 6 and 8 centuries and in the 19th Century 2 lighthouses were also built on Skellig Michaelm it is also one of Ireland’s most important sites for breeding seabirds both in terms of size of colonies and diversity of species. Skellig Michael is a magical place described by George Bernard Shaw, following a visit in 1910, as ‘incredible, impossible, mad place’ as ‘part of our dream world’.

Muckross House and Gardens represent the focal point of Killarney National Park. This is Ireland’s oldest National Park and it includes the world famous Lakes of Killarney, as well as the mountains the McGillycuddy’s Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland and woodlands that surround them. The combination of mountains, lakes, woods and waterfalls gives the area a special scenic beauty. The house itself is a late 19th century mansion with all the furnishings and artefacts of the period, it’s a must see when visiting the Park.

Kenmare Town is cradled in the heart of Kenmare Bay, the picturesque town is one of Ireland’s most idyllic destinations. It’s a great location for touring the South West of Ireland linking the world famous Ring of Kerry with the Ring of Beara. A visit to Kenmare leaves lasting memories with its colorful shop fronts, unrivaled range of restaurants and stunning scenery.

The Gap of Dunloe is one of the most stunningly beautiful parts of County Kerry and indeed Ireland. Stretching through the MacGuillicuddy Reeks mountain range, this beautiful glacial valley simply must be experienced to be appreciated. The walk through the Gap of Dunloe is spectacular with views that are breathtaking.
