County Kerry, is located in south-western region of Ireland. Kerry is well known globally for its beautiful and rugged landscape and scenery. Popular points include Muckross House (near Killarney), Staigue stone fort and Derrynane House, home of Daniel O'Connell (The liberator). Just south of Killarney, Ross Castle, Lough Leane and Ladies View (a panoramic viewpoint), all located within Killarney National Park, are major attractions located along the Ring of Kerry.

A more complete list of major attractions along the Ring of Kerry includes: Gap of Dunloe, Bog Village, Rossbeigh Beach, Cahersiveen Heritage Centre, Derrynane House, Skellig Experience, Staigue Fort, Moll's Gap, Ladies View, Torc Waterfall, Muckross House, The Blue Pool, Ross Castle, Ogham Stones, Muckross Abbey, Franciscan Friary, O'Connell Memorial Church, Skellig Michael, Beehive Cells and the Stone Pillars marking an important grave.

There is also an established walking path named The Kerry Way, which takes its own route, and a signposted Ring of Kerry cycling path which uses older quieter roads where possible. The Kerry Way roughly follows the scenic driving route of the Ring of Kerry. Kerry can cater for all kinds of sporting activity and is home to some of Ireland's best golf courses which include Ballybunion and Waterville. Kerry is steeped in tradition and folklore and there is always a warm Cead Mile Failte for all our visitors.
