County Kerry Holiday Cottages
Fall under the magical spell of south-west Ireland with a stay
in a County Kerry cottage. The Ring of Kerry epitomises the essence
of Ireland and a drive around this spectacular peninsula is a must.
Around each corner another scene unfolds, from wind-battered cliffs
to unspoilt beaches stretching as far as the eye can see. Explore
quaint little villages, the heritage town of Kenmare and monuments
like Dromore Castle. Or play on the world-class fairways of the
Ring of Kerry Golf Club, with views to die for!
Equally dazzling is the Dingle Peninsula, where the pace of life
is gentle. Start at Tralee, home to the National Folk Theatre (keen
walkers can also join the Dingle Way here). Highlights on the
peninsula include the port of Dingle, the village of Cloghane and
archaeological sites like the Gallarus Oratory. Climb the Conor
Pass for panoramic views and the chance to spot bottlenose dolphins
frolicking offshore. Stroll along the sands at Inch, browse Celtic
crafts, or sample a pint of the 'black stuff' in a
harbour-side tavern. Off the coast lie the Blasket Islands and
Skellig Rocks, rich in wildlife and historic treasures.
One of Kerry's best-loved towns is Killarney. Hop in a
'jaunting car' and trot around the Killarney National Park,
with its stunning lakes, sub-tropical gardens and historic sites
including Muckross House and Ross Castle. Go climbing, hiking,
cycling or canoeing - and look out for roaming red deer. Then
browse the colourful town, crammed with galleries, inns and
restaurants. Come see for yourself and book a County Kerry cottage!
