Here’s some great things to do during your stay in Kerry over your Summer Staycation:

'Costa del Kerry' Style Beaches

Kerry boasts some of the most picturesque beaches in Ireland and the world! The closest beach to us is the beautiful Banna Beach. Extending many miles with magnificent views, this beach is definitely a walkers paradise with views of mountains by Dingle Peninsula, Kerry Head and Maulin Mountains. There is also Rossbeigh Beach, a 6km long sandy paradise with spectacular views of the Kerry coastline! White Strand, another gem, is a scenic near-white sandy beach located along the stynning Ring of Kerry in Cahersiveen. It is one of the best spots for swimming and water sports in the summer months!

There are endless options in County Kerry for Mountain climbs & hikes, with the fresh, endorphin-filled Summer weather making it an ideal time to have an exhilarating adventure.  Kerry is home to Carrauntoohil and the McGillycuddy’s Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland which rises to a height of over 1000 metres.  

Scenic Sightseeing

From rugged coastlines to charming villages, bustling towns all bursting with history and culture; Kerry has it all for sightseeing. The most popular driving route, is the famous Ring of Kerry, 179km circular route around the Iveragh Peninsula.
