The County Kerry region

Spectacular lakes, mile after mile of coastline, green and yellow chequered hills, breathtaking cliffs, sub-tropical flowers and plants. And last, but not least, some of the warmest most charming people anywhere.

This is a place of marked contrasts – a dramatic coastline, rolling countryside and Ireland’s highest mountain. Kerry offers a glimpse of the real Ireland, a history lesson unfolding before your eyes.

The literature marries ancient myths and legends, lyricism and a deep knowledge of the region’s most important history. It has been an inspiration to writers, artists and musicians for centuries and it is easy why people wax lyrical about this paradise on earth.

Kerry is renowned for its rugged peninsulas, picturesque bays and profusion of subtropical vegetation along its coastline. Whatever your interest, Kerry will surprise you and entertain you with the very best of everything. From shopping and restaurants to the great outdoors, Kerry has the best of everything.

Discover the dramatic abbeys of Muckross, Inisfallen and Ardfert. Explore the romantic castles of Ross, Ballycarberry, Listowel and Carrigafoyle. Visit palatial houses and gardens such as Muckross House, Derrynane House and Glenleam House. Kerry has the largest density of archaeological sites, from the Skelligs Unesco World Heritage site and Staigue Forts of Cahergal and Castlecove on the Ring of Kerry, to Rattoo Round Tower, Gallarus and the heritage towns of Kenmare and Listowel.

Every day you’ll discover more opportunities to enjoy the space, beauty and tranquillity of this very special part of Ireland’s spectacular southwest.

It is easy to understand why Kerry is referred to as the Kingdom, as it is believed to be the closest thing to heaven on hearth.

Waterville Golf Links

Links land is a geological rarity. Less than one percent of all the courses in Ireland and the British Isles are championship links. Waterville is one of these. It is no wonder that the world’s best players test their mettle here. Golf at Waterville is a mystical experience – the beauty of classic links land, surrounded by the sea, yet forever challenged and shaped by the elements. Over 100 years old, Waterville is rated among the top 5 courses in Ireland and the top 20 links courses in the world. Links golf combines sand dunes gorse and native grasses, firm fairways, sod faced bunkers and subtle putting surfaces all intertwined by the ever changing weather. Forget the lob wedge. Think bump and run and creative shot making. Are you ready to walk in the footsteps of Irelands earliest golfers?

Skellig Bay Golf Course

Situated overlooking the magistic Ballinskelligs Bay and set among natural magalithic stonework and indigenous bog deal, there can be few more visually stunning locations for a golf couse than Skellig Bay in Waterville. The course opened for play in Spring 2006 and has already been rated in Irelands “Top 50”. Nestling in the shadows of the towering McGillicuddy Reeks, the golfer has to negotiate the river Fionnglass for the opening and closing holes but it is the stretch from six to sixteen that lives in memory long after the last putt has been sunk. Here the awesome beauty of the Bay hits you full in the face as you play through holes framed by over 8000 yards of ancient “famine” walls. Original standing stones from pre-christian times and a fairy fort all add to an unforgettable round as you experience an unbelievable feeling of another time and place.“Skellig Bay is full of challenging golf holes” says Sunday Independent Golf Correspondent Dermot Gilleece.

The Skellig Experience

In THE SKELLIG EXPERIENCE CENTRE you can experience many aspects of those offshore Skellig islands while remaining on the dry land, in a custom built, stone clad, grass roofed, prize winning building located right on the waterfront beside the Valentia Island bridge at Valentia, County Kerry! Here, through re-creations and models you can study the works and lives of the Skellig monks of the early Christian period, their activities, their endurance and their dedication in gaining a foothold on a tiny, inhospitable, offshore island and creating a community there that survived for some 600 years. In The Skellig Experience’s 80-seat auditorium, a 16-minute audio-visual presentation will take you in the footsteps of those Skellig monks, and wonder at the legacy of architecture that they left behind. In The Skellig Experience’s re-created Skellig sea cliff, with life-size models, you can get to know, by sight and sound, the life and times of the Skellig Monks.

Fishing in Waterville

Waterville is a Game and Sea Anglers paradise. The Lough Currane system includes five Loughs which offer the best Sea Trout fishing in Europe. Boats and/or Ghillies are available details at www.loughcurrane.com . There is also a wealth of other places to fish in the general area for Salmon and Trout such as The Caragh system, The Laune and Killarney's Great Lakes. For Shore anglers, there are many parts of Ballinskelligs Bay which are suitable for rock or surf fishing. In addition to the usual types of fish, Bass are readily taken and this can even be accomplished on a fly, an experience rarely forgotton. A great spot for Bass fishing is from the beach below Fuchsia Lodge or visit one of the many other surf beaches in the bay such as Waterville, Reenroe or Derrynane. The rocks towards hogs head regularly produce specimen Wrasse and Pollack as well as conger eels and Mackerel. These are just a walk away. Superb Deep Sea fishing is available for parties or individuals.

"a really lovely place, in a beautiful setting"

The Ring of Kerry is just wonderful, and Waterville is a great base for visits to different parts of it, including Derrynane House (my ancestral home!) and the stunning Strand there, Skelling Michael, Valentia Island, and much more. So Fuschia Lodge was the perfect place from which to explore this glorious area. But it was also a great place just to sit and relax and admire the views, or to walk to the nearby headland. We didn't get to use the sauna, but the facilities were very good once we got a sun umbrella sorted - musch needed, which was unusual for Co. Kerry! The Smugglers Inn on the N side of Waterville, next to the Golf Course, is a must.
