Kerry

Description

County Kerry, Dingle Peninsula

The southeast of Ireland offers mountains, lakes, a rugged coastline, and is therefore the most popular tourist destination. It’s popular name is Kerry, but the beauty is shared by both county Kerry and country Cork. The region is like a hand with fingers spread, penetrating deep into the Atlantic: Dingle peninsula, Kerry peninsula, Beara Peninsula, Sheeps Head … Apart from a handful very good long distance trails - among them the Kerry Way and the Dingle Way - there are plenty good hillwalking and coast walking opportunities.
