The Dingle Peninsula region

County Kerry (Irish: Contae Ciarraí) is a county in the south west of Ireland, in the Munster province of the Republic of Ireland, informally referred to as The Kingdom. It has an area of 4,746 km² (1,832 sq mi), and is bordered by County Limerick to the east and by County Cork to the south-east. The county town is Tralee.

One of Ireland's most famous towns, Killarney, is located in Kerry. The county has two national parks, the Killarney Lakes and Dingle Peninsula. The tip of the Dingle Peninsula is the most westernly point in mainland Ireland.

Kerry, on the south-west of Ireland, faces the Atlantic Ocean and typical of the Atlantic coast, features many peninsulas and inlets, principally the Dingle Peninsula, the Iveragh Peninsula, and the Beara Peninsula, shared with neighbouring County Cork. The county is bordered on the west by the Atlantic Ocean and on the north by the River Shannon.

The Ring of Kerry on the Iveragh Peninsula is a popular route for tourists and cyclists. The pedestrian version is the scenic Kerry Way which follows ancient paths generally higher than that adopted by the Ring of Kerry

Kerry contains two of the three highest mountains in Ireland, Carrauntoohill, part of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks range and Mount Brandon, part of the Slieve Mish range.

The Lakes of Killarney in the centre of the county are a scenic tourist attraction.

Just off Kerry's coast are a number of islands, including the Blasket Islands, Valentia Island and the Skelligs. Skellig Michael is a World Heritage Site, famous for the medieval monastery clinging to the island's cliffs.

Kerry contains the extreme west point of Ireland Dunmore Head on the Dingle Peninsula, or including islands, Tearaght Island, part of the Blaskets. The most westerly inhabited area of Ireland is Dunquin, on the Dingle Peninsula.The North Atlantic Current, part of the Gulf Stream, flows north by Kerry and the west coast of Ireland, resulting in milder temperatures than would otherwise be expected at the 52 North latitude. This means that subtropical plants such as the strawberry tree and tree ferns, not normally found in Northern Europe, thrive in the area. There are a number of gardens in the county, open to visitors.

Because of the mountainous area and the prevailing south-westerly winds, Kerry is among the regions with the higheIn the 15th Century, the majority of the area now known as County Kerry was part of the County Desmond, the west Munster seat of the Earl of Desmond, a branch of the Hiberno-Norman Fitzgerald family, known as the Geraldines.

In 1580, during the Second Desmond Rebellion, one of the most infamous massacres of the Sixteenth Century, the Siege of Smerwick, took place at Dún an Óir near Ard na Caithne (Smerwick) at the tip of the Dingle Peninsula. The 600-strong Italian, Spanish and Irish papal invasion force of James Fitzmaurice Fitzgerald was besieged by the English forces and massacred.

In 1588 when the fleet of the Spanish Armada in Ireland were returning to Spain during stormy weather, many of their ships sought shelter at the Blasket Islands and some were wrecked

st rainfall in Ireland. As a region on the extremity of Ireland, culture of Kerry was less susceptible to outside influences and is principally associated with Irish traditional music, song and dance.



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.The Dingle area is a stronghold of the ancient tradition of "hunting the wren", which takes place on St Stephen's Day, December 26th. Groups of wrenboys (who can be of either gender) dressed in straw suits or disguised in fancy dress, parade through Dingle town and adjacent villlages to the accompaniment of musicians and a hobby horse.Visitors to Dingle Town and surrounding coastal villages will be in no doubt that these are fishing communities. Although the fishing industry has seen much chnge and decline in recent years, it has left an imprint on the area.

There are so many things to see, to do, to explore, to experience on the Dingle Peninsula . . . from almost 2,000 archaeological sites, to more walking than you could fit into a year, to Fungie, a bottlenose dolphin who's been living at the mouth of Dingle Harbour since 1984, to a day spent on the Blasket Islands.


From Inch the main road to Dingle can be rejoined at Lougher and thence to lovely village Annascaul (Abhainn an Scáil), or the coast road can be followed westward from Inch, via Red Cliff, to reach Annascaul after a journey of 8km (5 miles). The mountains here will tempt many to make a long stay, and for the walker there is a particularly good route via Annascaul Lake over the hills of the Beenoskee group to Stradbally and Castlegregory.

This is the birthplace of Jerome Connor, the famous sculptor and Tom Crean, the Antarctic explorer.

"Absolutely Wonderful Stay"

We stayed in this beautiful apartment in May , myself , my husband and our four year old daughter. Fantastic views , close to a fabulous beach which our daughter loved. Only 5 mins walk from the villiage of Annascaul with an array of pubs , restaurants and small shops. The apartment was like home away from home and it had everything we could want. The owners were really nice and gave us tips on what to do and see in the area , the lovely lady owner also had a basket of fresh scones waiting for us when we arrived. Definitely Irish hospitality at its Best. We had such a great time we have booked another week in September.

"Simply wonderful hospitality!"

Recently stayed at Annagap cottage with my husband and sister and we all enjoyed our stay immensely! The cottage was excellent value for money, immaculately clean, extremely comfortable and the owners were the kindest and friendliest people we could have ever wished to meet! Although we were a little nervous of renting a cottage which was situated in the owners own grounds our fears were completely dispelled the moment we met Margaret and John. Nothing was too much trouble for them! Although a car is needed to enjoy the surrounding area, the town is a very short walk away, (approx 5mins) which is great if you fancy a drink in the evening (provided you have the energy after a days touring around this beautiful part of the country!) The cottage is ideally situated for exploring Kerry and it is such a home away from home with everything you could possibly need for your holiday. No need to keep searching the internet for that special place, you just found it!
