The County Kerry region

Careys is beside the River Inny in the most westerly corner of Europe, a climate where one can experience 4 seasons in one day.

More often than not a you can have light drizzle and it clears and then great sunsets and rainbows can finish the day.

Experience some of the best beaches in Europe and areas where you can see the tallest mountain in Ireland and some spectacular rugged coastlines that dip down to the sea. Many emigrants to the States, Australia, New Zealand and England have roots in Kerry.

The natural scenary and small villages are delightful. A must is a boat trip to the Skeligs if you wish to see where monks from 7th century settled. If fresh fish is what you crave for look no further, you can buy fresh fish or enjoy it in the local restaurants.Tiger Woods favourite golfcourse is to be found in Waterville.


Is a seaside village with supermarkets, pubs and restaurants night club and watersports and fishing.

Has a top links golf course. Excellent views and driving, walking a cycling opportunities. Waterville lake is an excellent visitors destination for fishing walking or exploring.

It hosts the international comedy film festival supported by the Chaplin family.
