Get carried away by County Kerry's enchanting emerald beauty

With the dramatic seascapes along the Wild Atlantic Way, the white-sand beaches of the Ring of Kerry, and the prehistoric ruins in the Dingle Peninsula, there's no shortage of Instagram-worthy sights in County Kerry, so make sure your camera's memory has plenty of space. You can take the kids to the lovely town of Dingle for an encounter with Fungie, the resident bottlenose dolphin. Or, explore the castles of Killarney and swim in the foamy waves of Ventry's beach. There are plenty of County Kerry vacation rentals to accommodate you, no matter what you decide to do on the Emerald Isle.

Things to do

The force is definitely strong with County Kerry

You don't need to go to a galaxy far, far away for an extraordinary holiday. From County Kerry vacation rentals, you can take a boat trip to the stunning island of Skellig Michael, where Luke Skywalker lived in self-imposed exile in the movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Ascend the rock-hewn steps to reach the ruins of an ancient Gaelic Christian monastery, and say hi to puffins that breed there. No less scenic is Killarney National Park, a 26,000-acre Irish paradise of mountains, woods, and lakes, where you'll also find the 15th-century Ross Castle.

Weather

Cover up for County Kerry's cool climes and abundant rainfall

County Kerry enjoys a temperate climate, thanks to the effects of the North Atlantic Current that goes northward past Ireland's west coast. But it's also one of the rainiest regions of Ireland, particularly from November to January. Temperatures during the summer months from June to August can go from a low of 50 degrees to a high of 65. In winter, you can expect the thermometer to fluctuate between 46 and 44 degrees, with January usually seeing the coldest weather. You can do as the locals do and head to the nearest pub, where a pint of Guinness will help keep you warm.

Natural features

No need for lucky charms: resplendent views are guaranteed

With its abundance of majestic natural beauty, it isn't hard to see why the county is referred to as "The Kingdom." Bounded on the north by the River Shannon and on the west by the Atlantic Ocean, it's also home to Mount Brandon and Carrauntoohil, two of Ireland's highest mountains. County Kerry vacation rentals are fantastic jumping-off points for hiking and biking trails in the Ring of Kerry, expeditions to the steep cliffs of Valentia Island, and the woodlands and hills of the Derrycunnihy Wood Nature Reserve, the grazing grounds of Japanese Sika deer and native red deer.
