The County Kerry region
Kerry is probably the most popular destination in Ireland.The sheer wild beauty of its mountainous terrain and coastline, combined with its fascinating history and archaeology make it a 'must visit' destination. Killarney, with its lakes, castles and surrounding mountains, Dingle, with its quaint harbour and array of small shops, pubs and restaurants and the county town, Tralee. with its internationally famous Rose of Tralee festival, racecourse and numerous shops and pubs are all no more than a 30 min drive from Annie's Cottage.
If you like walking, rambling or climbing, you are bang in the centre of Ireland's premiere mountain scenery with the highest five peaks all within reach for a day's climb (and down again!). There are also the Kerry way and the Dingle Way, two of Europe's most spectacular waymarked walking routes.
And, if you need something for the children to do, there are miles of white sandy beaches with not too many people on them where shells, driftwood, starfish and all manner of other items can be found. Surfing is also an increasingly popular activity on this part of the Dingle Peninsular, with Inch beach (only 5 miles away) a major venue.
Music, craft and culinary festivals frequently populate the calendar and there is rarely a weekend without something of interest happening locally. If the weather is fine, there are numerous outdoor activities to pursue. If not, there is the Aquadrome in Tralee, the climbing centre in Dingle, various indoor Horse riding centres and of course a plethora of pubs and restaurants to visit.
