Gather Your Tent, Put On Your Rugsack And Head Off To County Kerry

Take a tour of Kerry’s inspirational coastline and stunning national parks. For anyone that loves the great outdoors, Kerry is a dream destination. This charming county has it all, with truly sublime scenery, exceptionally friendly locals, internationally renowned spas, gorgeous little villages and excellent restaurants and sensational pubs. 

Kerry’s exceptional coastline is a series of peninsulas that open out into larger bays and give a totally unique feeling to the county, with craggy hills that tumble down into the choppy ocean below, and a remote, untouched aspect to the land. 

A drive around the Ring of Kerry or the Ring of Beara, which crosses the border into Cork, is an unforgettable way to experience the best that this awe-inspiring landscape has to offer. 

But if all that feels like too much hard work, then head to one of the utterly lovely villages like Sneem, Kenmare or Dingle and wile your afternoons away eating fresh seafood, drinking creamy pints and listening to some utterly authentic traditional music.

But before you head off make sure you have packed your wellies and wet-gear, your fleeces, beanies or woolly hats if camping outside of July and August. Then there is the fleecy campfire blanket , torches, plates, bowl, cup, cutlery and washing up basin.

Then there is a sharp knife, camping stove, matches (Whatever you do don`t forget them). While you are packing throw in your first aid kit, eco shampoo and body wash, hairbrush … maybe ….., your towel, a kitchen roll, baby wipes, citronella candles, picnic blanket for when the sun shines, yoga mat (for folks like Morris at least) kelly kettle, deck of cards, pass the pigs, books of course and swimming gear if camping on the coast.

As you might expect, there's lots of water sports especially windsurfing. There's fishing (coarse and for brown trout) diving, golf, and good walking and cycling. We are on The Dingle Way.

Many of the restaurants and pubs close by offer excellent food at all price levels. Some have Irish music in the evening and all have "the craic". There is good shopping in Tralee and Dingle. CastleGregory (1mile) has a well stocked general store with cash dispenser and a few other shops.

There's so much to do that you may run out of time before you get through even half of it.

The peninsula is dominated by the range of mountains that form its spine, running from the Slieve Mish range to Mount Brandon, Ireland's second highest peak.

These Skellig islands are world-famous, each in its own right: Skellig Michael is known throughout the world of archaeology as the site of a well-preserved monastic outpost of the Early Christian period – now designated a World Heritage Site; Small Skellig is equally renowned in matters of ornithology.
