General Information on Kerry: The Iveragh Peninsula (Irish: Uíbh Ráthach) is located in County Kerry in Ireland. It is the largest peninsula in southwestern Ireland. A mountain range, the Macgillycuddy's Reeks, lies in the centre of the peninsula. Carrauntoohil, its highest mountain, is also the highest peak in Ireland. Towns on the peninsula include Killorglin, Cahersiveen, Portmagee, Waterville, Caherdaniel, Sneem and Kenmare. The Ring of Kerry, a popular tourist trail, circles the coastline, beginning and ending at Killarney, just east of the peninsula. Valentia Island lies off the northwestern tip of the peninsula. It is connected with the peninsula by a bridge at Portmagee village, but it can also be reached by ferry crossing between Renard Point on the mainland and Knightstown on the island. The Skellig Islands lie about 12 kilometres off the west coast and are known for their monastic buildings and bird life.

The Dingle Peninsula stretches Westward for 50 km (30 miles) from Tralee to Dunquin. the western end of the Peninsula has magnificent coastal scenery and is an Irish speaking district. Many famous festival are held in Kerry each year. Listowel has its Writers Week, Tralee offers the famous Rose Festival, Killorglin the Puck Fair.

Car: Necessary

About 3km away you find a lot of craic at the local pub, Caiteen Baiters, with traditional Irish music on many nights, a beautiful panoramic restaurant with a mini shop, a souvenir’s and a petrol station is about 5 km away. The small town of Cahirciveen you reach in about 20 minutes by car. Tralee, Killarney and the Kerry County Airport can are about an hours drive away. There is lots to do, like go for a trip to the Skellig Rocks on a boat and see the settlement where monks used to live at about A.D. 795, or visit the radio station with its first trans-Atlantic telephone cable, the weather station, the slate quarry on Valentia Island to name but a view things. O’Neill’s restaurant, “The Point” in Reenard, serves wonderful fish fresh from the Atlantic. That is if you do not want to catch it yourself.

Other Activities: Please ask about availability via email or phone, since this makes it easier on me. I would be glad to be of help.

No trip to Kerry is complete without including the panoramic Ring of Kerry drive on the Iveragh Peninsula.

I have to confess that cooperative house owners, who have become dear friends in the meantime, have made it easy for me. The same do lovely guests who keep coming back. * At this point I used to add a year each .....
