Known for its Spectacular Scenery, Welcoming Locals and Wild Atlantic Coastline

Find the proverbial ‘pot of gold’ in County Kerry, a land filled with hidden treasures. From the foamy seas and staggering cliffs of the Wild Atlantic Way’s Southern Peninsulas to Killarney National Park’s 26,000 acres of woodlands, mountains, and lakes, its glorious scenery stirs the soul. Meander through magical Muckross House and Gardens. Take a traditional and enchanting jaunting car ride to Ross Castle. Delve into the Ring of Beara for quintessentially local experiences.

Behold the Skellig Islands from afar, or ferry to Skellig Michael—a must for Star Wars fans. Savor seafood chowder in Kenmare and soak up Sneem’s colorful charms. Discover what makes welcoming Dingle a favorite for so many people. Without question, you’ll feel richer for visiting this storied part of Ireland.
