Experience the magic this summer and head to Kerry to explore the stunning coastlines, breathtaking views, spectacular mountain ranges, and panoramic beaches. County Kerry has all you need for the perfect summer staycation right on your doorstep.


Head south this summer and experience the magic of the Kingdom through some of Kerry’s most famous beaches and coastlines.  Take part in activities like surfing, kayaking and fishing, or explore the beautiful coastline of Kerry through boat tours and sea safaris. The Dingle Peninsula is a haven for water sports fans and fishing enthusiasts alike.

Dingle Sea Safari

Kerry is home to the largest mountain range in Ireland the Macgillycuddy’s Reeks, which offer incredible views and is often referred to as the rooftop of Ireland’. Kerry mountain ranges offer challenging climbs and picturesque views.

Carrauntoohil is a climb for experienced climbers and people who want to challenge themselves. For those of us who want to relax and still take in the fresh Kerry air, many walking routes are available. The Kerry Camino walk which runs from Tralee to Dingle is perfect to take in the sea and mountain views of Kerry. 

The hidden gem of Kerry is Glanteenassig Forest Park – a sheltered valley among the Slieve Mish Mountains where the landscape is breathtaking. Off the beaten track, it is an outdoor enthusiasts dreamland with over 450 hectares of woodland, mountains, lakes and peatland to explore.
