Co. Kerry Has It All !!!!

I love County Kerry, what else can I say, I feel that it is the heart of Ireland, because it has it all. If you just visited County Kerry, I think that you would have seen what Ireland is all about.

The Irish People, the Scenery, the Wild Ocean, the mountain ranges, the Traditional Irish Music, the Ancient Ruins, the Gaelic Culture, the original Language, the Irish Cottages, the seaports, fishing villages, the Best Pubs....and on and on.

The Dingle Countryside.

Dingle Peninsula is the best of Co. Kerry. Perhaps others would differ with me, but Dingle is special. If I went to the Dingle area alone, I would be still very happy and content.

Slea Head Drive and Beach, The Blasket Islands and it's amazing recent history, Brandon Head, Conor Pass, Anascaul, Ventry, Dunquin, Ballyferriter. And of course, Dingle Town and all her wonderful Pubs and Restaurants.

Ring of Kerry.

The Ring of Kerry is very scenic and lovely...but I personally favor the Dingle Ring more.

Ventia Island, Skellig Rocks are special, and also Gap of Dunloe. Killarney is a little too touristy for me, but many like it. Muckross Farms should be fun for most as the Kerry Bog.

    A page to remember, esp. before another trip to Ireland. Dingle and the archaeological tour sound great. And all those lovely pubs with live music!

    Thanks for visiting my page. It looks like you had a wonderful time. Clearly, we should have given Dingle more time. I'll have to make a point of it next trip.

    More excellent photos -- I really like the one of Slea Head / Bally David -- captures the soul of Ireland.

    I agree, one of the most enjoyable of Irish counties - in my limited knowledge!! Sign me up for O'Flaherty's and a Guinness!!
