The Province of Munster region

Kerry is situated in the South West Region of Ireland. It is widely known as an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Kerry faces the Atlantic Ocean and, typically for an Eastern-Atlantic coastal region, features many peninsulas and inlets, principally the Dingle Peninsula, the Iveragh Peninsula, and the Beara Peninsula. The county is bounded on the west by the Atlantic Ocean and on the north by the River Shannon. Kerry is one of the most mountainous regions of Ireland and contains two of its three highest mountains, Carrauntoohil, part of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks range, and Mount Brandon, part of the Slieve Mish range. Just off the coast are a number of islands, including the Blasket Islands.

Kerry's climate is influenced by the relatively warm waters of the Gulf Stream and by the prevailing southwestern winds from the Atlantic. They say that "Kerry has little climate but gets a lot of weather". This is quite true in fact. Overall the climate (temperature, sunshine and humidity) vary little here over the year. The Gulf Stream which comes up from the Gulf of Mexico washes the shores of Kerry with warm waters. Some people here swim in the sea all year round as the temperature varies little, reaching a low of about 8 degrees Celsius in March to a high of 16 degrees in August. Mind you, a winter swim here is one way of getting a real appreciation of Irish Coffee (made from coffee, boiling water and Irish whiskey - topped with fresh cream).

This mild climate has a huge effect on the landscape of Kerry - everything and everywhere seems to be green. The fact that we rarely get severe frost and little or no snow means that many plants grow unchecked all year round. An excellent example of this marvellous growth can be seen in the Killarney oakwood where every rock and every stone seems to be covered in mosses, lichen and liverworts of every description. Another example of our mild climate can be seen at Glanleam Gardens on Valentia Island. Here sub-tropical plants thrive thousands of miles from their origin.Due to very mountainous terrain, Kerry experinces a high than average amount of rain.


Our holiday home is situated on the Muckross Road beside the famous Lakes of Killarney and the Killarney National Park and Muckross House. Only a mile approx from the centre of Killarney town and next door to the Irish National Events Centre.We are all very proud of our vibrant "little" town and the incredibly beautiful surrounding countryside which makes Killarney a very special place indeed.

Killarney (Irish: Cill Airne, meaning "church of sloes") is a town in County Kerry, southwestern Ireland. The town is located north of the MacGillicuddy Reeks, on the northeastern shore of the Lough Lein/Leane which are part of Killarney National Park.Home to many of the most famous beauty spots in Ireland to include Lakes of Killarney, Torc Waterfall, Ross Castle, Gap of Dunloe, Muckross House & Traditional Farms to name but a few.

It is always great to hear our guests enjoy their visit to our property and I am delighted to hear we rated above some of the other places you stayed on your travels in Ireland.

Once again, thank you for being excellent house guests, it was a pleasure to have met you all and if you ever get back to Ireland again, we would be delighted to welcome you back to Blarney House.

Dear Marianne, Bill, Annie, William, Margaret and Debbie,

It is with great delight I read your extensive review of your recent stay with us in Killarney. I am just so touched you took the time to sit down and post such a detailed and descriptive account of your visit to our home and the Killarney/Dingle region. It was lovely to have met you all and to sit down with you to chat. I felt like we had known each other for years and your own description of Sandpoint inspired me to do some research on America's most beautiful small town. We have a lot in common with natural lakes and beauty in Killarney & Sandpoint both.

I was also very interested to follow your wonderful blog on your travels around Ireland with your witty accounts of your travels and fantastic images of Killarney, Dingle, Valentia, Galway etc......I told two friends of mine about your blog and they along with others on both sides of the ocean were all following it too!

Again, I thank you all most sincerely, it was a great pleasure to have met you all and I know we will keep in touch, Marianne your penmanship skills on your blog, Facebook and your book keep us all entertained, and we look forward to the next chapter of your fascinating tales. I will be honored and look forward to having you back anytime to Killarney ,

Kindest Regards & Best Wishes to all of you,
