If neighbouring County Clare seems peaceful itís because all the tourists are crowding into Kerry. The hub of all this activity is the town of Killarney, which is probably second only to Dublin in the amount of tourist accommodation on offer. Over the years the town has geared itself totally towards tourism, and in summer it is packed. Itís a pleasant base if you can stand the crowds, but the county is big enough to offer enough spectacular scenery for everyone. On the southwest tip of Ireland the coastline is punctuated by a series of peninsulas sticking out into the Atlantic. The famous Ring of Kerry is a circuit of the Iveragh Peninsula, the most southerly in the County.

It is breathtaking on a clear day, but it is worth taking time out and exploring the quieter interior landscape too. A boat trip from the Iveragh Peninsula to the Skellig Islands, if weather permits, offers a spectacular insight into an ancient monastic settlement in the most inhospitable terrain imaginable. Less touristy and even more beautiful than the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula hosts an extraordinary array of ancient monuments amongst a stunning background.
