Situated at the head of Kenmare bay, the town is part of the Ring of Kerry and the Beaara Peninsula. Kenmare is a heritage town dating back to 1678 and its charming atmosphere is portrayed through every streeet and lane with colourful shop fronts, galleries full of art and crafts, cosy cafes, gourmet restaurants and traditional pubs. There is a stone circle in the town and there are many heritage sites in the area, one in particular is the bonane herritage park. The Beara ring starts about 1km out of Kenmare over the suspension bridge.The rugged Beara is shared between counties Kerry and Cork, Gleninchaquin park is an idyllic valley perfectly suitaed for day outings with the entire family, The walk goes around the 140m high waterfall, cascades streams, woodlands and lakes.Dereen Gardens is a nice stop it is a magnificent waterside estate planted aroound 120 years ago, the growth of exotic plants from many parts of the world gives the impression of walking through a tropical jungle.Don't miss out of the Tim Healy pass which takes you in to Castletown bere heaven and on to Dursey, Allhies and eyeries.Make sure to bring your camera, your paint or your fishing rod because you will not see scenery like this anywhere.
There is plenty to do in Kenmare.Star sailing outdoor center offers canoeing, sailing a bouncy castle on the water, paintball, archery and lots more, and if you don't feel like to much activity you can cruise aboard the star of Kenmare and see the may bird and sealife on the Kenmare bay. Kenmare is renound for its lace making and this can be viewed at the lace and design centre. Molly Gallivan's cottage and traditional farm is a nice visit in Bonane and here you can also treat yourself to some delicious chocolate made locally in the Bonane chocolate factory.
