The County Kerry region
Kerry, commonly known as "The Kingdom", is located in South West of Ireland in the province of Munster. The fifth largest of Ireland's thirty-two Counties.
The County contains some of Ireland's most magnificent scenery, a combination of high mountain, low rolling hills, lakes, rivers, bog land, rugged coastline and off-shore islands. The country's highest mountains are to be found in Kerry. It contains all but two of the country's dozen peaks in excess of 3,000 ft. including Ireland's highest, Carrantuohill (3,414 ft.). The rugged hills and mountains are generally found in the south and west of the County, with the central area and northern part comprising relatively fertile pasture land.
The County's location in the South-West of the country, where it is influenced by the North Atlantic Gulf Stream gives it a very mild climate with a high level of rainfall - average 66 ins. per year. The mountainous nature of the County contributes to this, while the rainfall level, in turn contributes to the spectacular nature of the changing landscapes. We have the longest coastline of any Irish County, principally because of the three large peninsulas.
Kerry has traditionally been Ireland's premier tourist County, chiefly because of its spectacular physical features. Killarney and its hinterland is probably one of the best known tourist destinations in Europe. The whole South Kerry area, together with the Dingle Peninsula are also very prominent tourist destinations. Many new visitor attractions have been developed in recent years, particularly in the Tralee area, such as The Geraldine Centre, Kerry County Museum, Blennerville Windmill and Tralee Aqua Dome
The Dingle Peninsula / Corca Dhuibhne ia a unique storehouse of Irish cultural heritage. Until recently, the peninsula was remote from the influences of the modern world, and this meant that the language and traditions of the area have survived intact to a greater degree than in most of Ireland.
Dingle (An Daingean), a beautiful and charming fishing port, is the most westerly town in Europe and a most memorable destination. Gaily painted houses and busy streets lead you to the harbour, where you can meet Fungi, a playful bottle-nosed dolphin who cavorts for the enjoyment of everyone.
Maharees or Magharees (Irish: Na Machairí) is a 5 km long ayre located on the northern side of the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland. Fenit Harbour, the main port of County Kerry is sheltered from large Atlantic swells by the Maharees. To the north of the Maharees lie the Magharee Islands or Seven Hogs, the largest of which, Oileán t-Seanaigh, contains remnants of an early Christian monastic settlement, said to have been founded by St. Senan in the 7th century AD. The peninsula is a sandy spit for much of its length, with sand dunes giving way to earth and rocky ground towards the northern end. The sand dunes create a unique ecosystem, home to the rare Natterjack toad which is found locally in significant quantities. Lengthy beaches are found on both sides of the peninsula, which separates Brandon Bay on the western side from Tralee Bay to the east. The Brandon Bay beaches are open to the North Atlantic and often receive long rolling swells, which can provide excellent surf given suitable wind and tide conditions. The peninsula is dotted with campgrounds and caravan parks and contains three hamlets Fahamore Kilshannig and Candiha which are home to local pubs and restaurants popular with visitors to the area. Castlegregory Golf and Fishing club is a nine hole links golf course located at the base of the peninsula, a 5 star PADI certified dive centre is located at the fishing harbour at Scraggane BaySeveral windsurfing and surf schools are also located at the beaches on the Maharees. Maheree Island Tours and Angling is also based at Scraggane Pier. Yachting facilities, a marina and a sheltered harbour are located a few miles east at Fenit

"Gorgeous house with a beautiful beach a short stroll away"
We travel to this area of Kerry most years but have never stayed at a rental property quite like Salone house. It is designed and decorated with flair, with well considered touches that offer a home-f… More
