County Kerry cottages

Find your next escape in the ‘kingdom’ of County Kerry in our large range of holiday homes in the area. We offer a very diverse range of holiday cottages across Kerry, from holiday homes by the beach, to dog-friendly cottages and some of the best countryside views in the whole country.   

County Kerry, traditionally known as the 'kingdom', is situated in south-west Ireland. Kerry has two contrasting landscapes - the mountainous south with the Beara, Iveragh and Dingle peninsulas, and the smaller 'plains' area that stretches as far north as the Shannon estuary. Along the coast, sandy bays alternate with cliffs and rocky headlands. 

The drive from Tralee to Brandon is spectacular and in the Brandon Art Gallery, the beauty of Kerry's scenery is captured in a collection of stunning oil paintings. From Brandon, you can walk over the Conor Pass to Dingle - or simply climb Mount Brandon to experience raw beauty at its best. However, scenery is by no means Kerry's only attraction there are many coastal resorts with excellent angling, great cycling, superb golf courses and a wealth of ancient monuments. 

North Kerry is a very pleasant, undulating lowland stretching from the hill region of South Kerry northwards to the Shannon estuary  North Kerry has a varied coastline with fine cliff scenery at Kerry Head and Ballybunion.  Inland there is a strip of limestone land which contains a number of caves and underground streams as yet not properly explored.  Proceeding eastwards the change from limestone to shale rock gives rise to a more elevated tract stretching over the borders of Limerick and Cork.  These moors and boglands seldom rise over 1000 feet.  Near Tralee they are known as the Stacks and Glanarudddery mountains.   

South Kerry possesses some of the finest and best-known scenery in the country, with the famous Lakes of Killarney, Ireland's highest mountain, Carrantuohill, the dramatic Gap of Dunloe, the passes of Ballaghisheen, Ballaghabeama, Coomakista, Moll's Gap and the Tim Healy Pass; the National Parks at Killarney and Derrynane; the fascinating Skelligs; the little known 'Highlands' of Glencar; the many places of archaeological and historical interest, highlighted by the world-renowned Ring of Kerry. On the southern side of the Ring is the beautiful Kenmare valley with its picturesque town.  

The facilities available to the fisherman, golfer, motorist, mountain-climber, bather, cyclist are unrivalled.  Islands off the peninsula contain some of the most important sea-bird colonies in Europe.  They hold what may be the largest concentration of storm petrels and gannets in the world and Ireland's greatest colony of Manx shearwaters.   

Entertainment in the area is varied and suited to most tastes - anything from the serenity of a ballet performance to the informality and gaiety of a traditional singing pub  The hospitality and friendliness of the people can be experienced during one of the area's many festivals.   

County Kerry really does have all the ingredients to ensure a truly enjoyable and memorable holiday, so browse through our selection of County Kerry cottages today and get excited for your trip to this wonderful area.
