Welcome to Kerry

The Kingdom of Kerry...Kerry means the "people of Ciar" which was the name of the pre-Gaelic tribe who lived in part of the present county. We are located In the South West region of Ireland which is also part of the province of Munster.

Travelling to Kerry...has never been easier. Only 1 hour from Cork City and Shannon Airport and 3 hours from Dublin, Kerry is easily accessible. With a modern road network in place and train and bus services daily. Better still fly direct to Kerry County Airport, with flights arriving from Frankfurt Hahn (Germany), Luton and Stansted (England), Dublin, Faro (Portugal) and Alicante (Spain).

Accommodation in Kerry...is of the highest standard in Europe, with a huge choice of hotels, b & b's, guesthouses, self-catering, hostels and camping

Dining out in the Kingdom...is a treat. With everything from award winning restaurants, rustic cafes, the dependable takeaway and the traditional Irish Pub.

The playground of Ireland...is how we are known. Never a more true word said ! With the Killarney National Park for family walks and cycles, the mountains, the sea and the picturesque roads for the more adventurous. A wealth of indoor activities to see you through the odd rain shower and a multitude of town centre shops and shopping arcades.

So come and discover Kerry...we await you with a warm smile and a  Cead míle fàilte.
