Hotels in Kerry
County Kerry, in the south west of Ireland, is part of Munster, one of the four provinces that make up the country. With its ragged and dramatic coastline, endless emerald green fields, standing stones and mountain summits, Kerry is a paradise for the adventurer but is also an area of the world that can be enjoyed for its natural beauty and welcoming people. Book a Kerry hotel with us and discover the exquisite beauty of one of Ireland's most popular destinations.
Killarney National Park, the first of its kind in Ireland, is 64mi2 of stunning woodlands, mountains, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, bogs and more. The area is perfect for a gentle ramble or a more intense hike. You can also trek on a pony or horse or enjoy a bike ride. There are plenty of places to fish. Perhaps take a boat onto one of the park's three interlocking lakes.
So much of Kerry is close to water and consequently there are numerous activities from boating on rivers and lakes to taking to the sea when surf's up. The beautiful beaches of Inch and Banna, the windswept coastline of Ballybunion and stirring Brandon Bay are just a handful of locations ideal for breaking the waves.
There are over 20 golf courses dotted around the county. The Old Course in Ballybunion which is Ireland's oldest, established in 1893, has the Atlantic Ocean and wonderful green vistas as spectacular backdrops.
Ireland's national sport is Gaelic football and in Kerry GAA, the county has the pastime's most successful team. The Fitzgerald Stadium in Killarney is the home ground of the senior team. To see what all the fuss is about, grab a seat and experience the sport that grips a nation.
