-  Your Guide to County Kerry, Ireland


Kerry Attractions

Kerry has long been Ireland's premier tourist County, chiefly because of its spectacular physical features. Killarney and its hinterland is probably one of the best known tourist destinations in Europe. The whole South Kerry area, together with the Dingle Peninsula are also very prominent tourist destinations. Many new visitor attractions have been developed in recent years, particularly in the Tralee area, such as The Geraldine Centre, Kerry County Museum, Blennerville Windmill, Tralee/Blennerville Steam Train, Kerry Entertainment World, Jungle Jims and Tralee Aqua Dome. Other visitor attractions are being developed in various locations to add to the already well-known places of interest, such as Muckross House, and Muckross Interpretative Centre, Ardfert Cathedral, Gallarus Oratory, the Siamsa Tíre Theatre, the Skellig Experience and the Great Blasket Island Interpretative Centre, Fenit Sea World, Tarbert Bridewell and Heritage Centre, Dingle Marina and Aquarium, and The Barracks, Caherciveen. To the North you have the wonderful beaches of Ballyheigue, Banna and Ballybunion. Listowel offers Racing and festivals such as Writers Week.

The Golf Courses of Kerry are some of the finest with Ballybunion Old Course recognised as the number one course in the world outside America. In close competition with this are Killarney, Waterville, Barrow, as well as ten other courses scattered all over the County.

If golf is not an interest and walking is, a number of excellent walking routes over the most scenic areas are available in the Kerry Way, Slí Chorcha Duibne and many other equally interesting trips.

Depending on the time of the year Kerry is also host to some of Irelands most famous and most enjoyable festivals such as The Rose of Tralee and Killorglins' Puck Fair.
