County Kerry probably lays claim to the most spectacular and most visited county in Ireland. The two northernmost of Ireland's "toes" are the Dingle and Iveragh peninsulas, and it is here that you will find Ireland's busies tourist routes.
The Dingle peninsula is rugged and beautiful, its narrow width dominated by the majestic Slieve Mish mountains and the Atlantic Ocean on all sides. One of the most beautiful views in Ireland can be found at the Conor Pass, a narrow mountain road between Tralee and Dingle. Dingle itself is a wonderful visitor town - an important Irish fishing harbour that was made famous in the early 1960's by the filming of "Ryans Daughter". The southern coast road from Dingle to Killarney is also spectacular and the beach at Inch is one of Ireland's best.
The Iveragh peninsula features the famous "Ring of Kerry" trail a circular route from Killarney through Killorglin, Caherciveen and into Waterville on the western coast. The southern coast road returns to Killarney via Sneem and over the mountains via spectacular Moll's Gap and into Killarney via Ladies View and Torc waterfall with outstanding views over the Lakes of Killarney.
Known as "the Kingdom", Kerry is also home to three of Ireland's most famous links courses: Ballybunion, Tralee and Waterville. There are several other fine links and parkland courses in the county.
