County Kerry General Information

County Kerry is home to picture-postcard Ireland: the Ireland of hyper-stylized television adverts and Riverdance dreams. If you want Celtic charm, this is the place to be. The fifth-largest county in the Republic of Ireland is 4,746 km2 of snowy summits, limpid lakes, windswept peninsulas, desolate coasts, ancient ruins and tidy, hospitable hamlets. Put it all together and County Kerry is a magical corner of Ireland.

Though the county town of Kerry is Tralee (and a fine county town at that), the undeniable pulse point is Killarney. Easily one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland, the town of 14,000 people is a gateway to Lough Leane, Muckross Lake and Upper Lough, otherwise known as the Lakes of Killarney, and Carrauntoohil, the most prominent peak in the country. The natural gems on Killarney’s doorstep all reside within spectacular Killarney National Park. A foremost UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the park contains vast woodlands, boglands, and vivid endemic fauna and flora. Specific points of interest to include on a visit range from Ross Castle to Muckross Abbey, Muckross House and Gardens to O'Sullivan's Cascade. Skellig Michael, a UNESCO World Heritage 7th century monastic complex 12 km off the coast of County Kerry, is another must-see attraction in this pre-eminent enclave of the Emerald Isle.
