Kerry is more than a mere county – it’s a Kingdom...

Right out on the edge of Europe, where Ireland’s highest mountains dip down into the wild Atlantic Ocean, is the ancient Kingdom of Kerry. This is the furthest west you can go in all of Ireland. “Next parish, Manhattan” they say here. And it’s partly this far-flung feel – away from the rest of the world in Ireland’s beautiful South West corner – that makes it so appealing. There’s good food, fine pubs, easy banter and live music to be found right across Kerry in lively towns and tiny settlements. And while visitors may argue about their favourite towns, everyone genuflects to the perfection that is the Kerry landscape.

It’s just drop-dead gorgeous.
