Located right on the Kerry Way and two miles from the Ring of Kerry, Barralach is a hill-walker’s paradise. Its own 10 acres and the thousands of surrounding acres of open hillsides provide pasture for flocks of mountain sheep and lambs. It is close to the mid-point between the great golf courses of Killarney, Tralee, Waterville and Ballybunion and is only 10 minutes from Dooks 18-hole links course. It overlooks the salmon and trout lakes and rivers of the Caragh system. The great Atlantic surfing strand of Rossbeigh and the quieter beaches of Dooks are close by. The fine restaurants and pubs of Killorglin and Glenbeigh, on the Ring of Kerry, are easily reached. Our brochure will guide you to the best eateries, and to superb and memorable activities such as horse riding on Rossbeigh strand or in Killarney National Park, visits to the Skellig and Blasket Islands, outings with the Dingle dolphin or magnificent walks on the Kerry Way.

Other Activities: mountain biking, photography; landscape painting; bog vegetation lichens & natural springs; hundreds of acres for young and old.

Geology, showing dramatic effects of the Ice Ages in the shaping of the landscape all around us and the deposit of erratic boulders.

History including the Kerry Bog Village, the astonishing 350 million year-old tetrapod tracks, Gallarus Oratory and many Mass Rocks.
