County Kerry contains some of Ireland's most iconic scenery. Kerry has soft golden strands, surf-pounded sea cliffs, emerald-green farmland crisscrossed by tumbledown stone walls, cloud-torn mountain peaks, and mist-shrouded bogs.
With one of Ireland's finest national parks as its backyard, the lively tourism hub of Killarney spills over with colourful shops, pubs, and restaurants. Kerry's two famed loop drives: the larger Ring of Kerry skirts the mountainous Iveragh Peninsula. The more compact Dingle Peninsula is like a condensed version with ancient prehistoric ring forts, sandy beaches, beehive huts, and glimpses of a hard, unforgiving land. Kerry is perfect for an escape from the crowds. There's always a mountain pass, an isolated cove or an hiddden trail to discover.
