County Kerry

Official achievement authored by JimG008.

County Kerry is renowned the world over for its beautiful scenery, including Ireland's highest mountain Carrantuohill (1,040 metres 3,414 feet) the Lakes of Killarney, its beautiful sandy beaches, cliffs and rocky headlands. No trip to Kerry is complete without including the panoramic Ring of Kerry drive on the Iveragh Peninsula. It stretches South West from Killarney for 65km (40 miles) and takes you through the towns of Kenmare, Sneem, Waterville, Cahersiveen, Glenbeigh, and Killorglin.

Castles, Ogham & Stone Circles, Fairy stories and traditions of olden times all to be found in Kerry!

If ancient monuments interest you, there are plenty of stone circles in Kerry, with the most spectacular in Uragh near Lough Inchiquin. The main stone is over three meters high and there’s also a famine cottage to visit nearby. Like today’s headstones, Ogham (the first form of Irish writing) stones marked burial sites and graves with information about the deceased. To see some impressively preserved inscriptions, you’ll find the eight Dunloe Ogham Stones between Beaufort Village and the Gap of Dunloe. From rugged cliffs to ancient monuments, UNESCO heritage sites to sweeping beaches and national parks, County Kerry has plenty to offer.

Known for its outstanding beauty, and one of the few places you can hear Irish spoken as a first language, drive the Ring of Kerry and stop off in its many historic towns and villages for a true experience of Ireland, its people and its culture.
