Welcome to Kerry

The Kingdom of Kerry...Kerry means the "people of Ciar", the name of the pre-Gaelic tribe who lived in parts of the county. County Kerry is in southwest Ireland and is part of Munster province.

Travelling to Kerry has never been easier. With a modern road network in place and daily train and bus services. 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). It's 1 hour from Cork Airport and Shannon Airport and 3 hours from Dublin Airport. It's easy to get here. 

  

Accommodation in Kerry...is of the highest standard in Europe, with a huge choice of hotelsb & b'sguesthousesself-cateringhostels 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.

Top 10 to Do and See in : North Kerry Region, Tralee Region, Castleisland & East Kerry Region, The Dingle Peninsula Region, Mid-Kerry Region, Glenbeigh Region, Killarney Region, Ring of Kerry (North) Region, Ring of Kerry (South) Region and Kenmare Region.
