Some Information about County Kerry
Parts of County Kerry belong to the internationally recognised “Kerry Dark Sky Reserve” with no light polution but millions of stars in clear nights and are also a section of the “Wild Atlantic Way”. The South-West coast offers a unique landscape with lots of activities to undertake. Walking the coastal trails, hiking the Kerry Way across the Kerry Mountains, cycling on quiet country lanes, swimming at safe sandy beaches with excellent water quality, water sports like surfing, sailing, diving, fishing off the cliffs, deep sea angling from chartered boats with experienced skippers, lake or river fishing, golfing on beautifully kept links and courses, horse trekking through the country side and over sandy beaches or exploring the many cultural sites of the ancient Celts. More highlights are a boat trip to the Skellig Rocks with the ancient monestry on Skellig Michael and the seabird sanctuary on Little Skellig or a visit to the first transatlantic telephone cable Station in Cahersiveen, the weather station, the slate mine, the Fogher Cliffs or Cromwell Point lighthouse on Valantia Island and oodles more.
Optionally you may just as well listen to Irish music in the many authentic Irish pubs, chat to the friendly locals or simply inhale the smell of the Atlantic Ocean.
