July 08  " Many Thanks. O'Driscoll's B&B . was unanimously voted the best B&B, best breakfast and most welcoming hostess by the three of us - and not just on our trip to Ireland but everywhere we have been. We also loved the village of Glin. Hope to see you again some day."

From the middle of the 19th century and the visit of Queen Victoria, Killarney has become the mecca of Irish Tourism. Poets and painters, writers and songsters, have never really fully described the varied beauty of the perfect blend of mountain and island-studded lakes, shores and glens. 'Beauty's Home' is an apt description.

In North Kerry, Listowel is a designated Literary Heritage Town. A town rich in writers and playwrights such as John B. Keane, Bryan McMahon and many others. Visit the Arts and Heritage Centre in the former St. John's Church of Ireland church, the Writer's Well and the new "SEANACHAI" Kerry Literary Cultural Centre and Writers' Museum. Enjoy the Riverside Park beside the River Feale.

A busy town full of interesting buildings and visitors attractions, Tralee has much to keep both young and old busy for hours and hours - the Aqua Dome, the museums and the Geraldine Experience, the restored steam train, the Blennerville Windmill, Siamsa Tire. Tralee is also the Gateway to the Dingle Peninsula.
Dingle Peninsula

The northernmost of Kerry's two great peninsulas; it is also the westernmost place in Europe. It is amazingly diverse as to geography and character.

  • The mountains that backbone the peninsula from Sliabh Mish to Brandon are punctuated with megaliths.
  • The breathtaking Connor Pass is the highest mountain pass in Ireland.
  • The coastline is dotted with beautiful sandy beaches and aquatic and sub-aquatic sports.
  • The area north and west of Dingle town is full of ancient sites
  • Dingle Oceanworld provides fun and education for children and adults alike
The Ring of Kerry

A magnificent marriage of mountain, forest, blanket bog, lake river and sea-coast.

Lapped by the gentle waters of the Gulf Stream, it enjoys mild winters and is home to a sub-tropical vegetation rare at this latitude. The mountains are, of course, Ireland's biggest, the MacGillicuddy Reeks.

  • Kenmare was Ireland's first planned town
  • Sneem has won national awards for its neatness
  • Cahersiveen was the birthplace of Daniel O'Connell, who won 'Catholic emancipation' for his people. Visit the museum at Derryane House
  • The area is rich in archeology: wedge tombs, forts, standing stones with Ogham inscriptions and stone circles abound'
  • Boat trips are available to the Skelligs, where St Fionan founded a monastic settlement in the 6th century, and Valentia Island, famous for its tropical flora and fauna.
