Beach in County Kerry, Ireland

County Kerry is found in the south west of the Republic of Ireland and is famed for its spectacular rugged scenery and multitude of things to do and see. The greatest attraction of this beautiful area is the long and majestic coastline, which is made up of a series of peninsulas stretching into large bays and gives a wild and untamed feel to the land.

Driving is the best way to get around in this region so car hire in Kerry will help you to see all that the county has to offer, but be sure to also pack your walking boots as the terrain and scenery can make for some fantastic hikes. Explore the area by taking a drive around the Ring of Kerry or the Ring of Beara and take in the stunning scenery. Then head over to Killarney, the main town in the area, where you can marvel at the beautiful lakes and perhaps take a tour of the historic Ross Castle.

If you are a little more active then take a drive across to Macgillycuddy's Reeks, the highest mountain in Ireland and hire a horse and trap or a bike to explore the famed Gap of Dunloe. Another great road trip would be over to the Dingle Peninsula, which has an array of fantastic seafood restaurants as well as the majestic Mount Brandon and also offers you the chance to meet the local celebrity, Fundie the dolphin!
