The old graveyard beyond Caherdaniel beach

Walking

  • there are a number of fine longer and shorter marked walks in the area! Enjoy the scenic walks to the historic Derrynane National Parks and to the wonderful sandy beaches. Explore the old graveyard on a little peninsula off the beach. Walk on portions of the famous Kerry Way either along the coast in the direction of Waterville (and take the taxi back) or to the Staigue Fort: This iron age fort lies in quiet countryside and should not be missed! The drystone walls are 30 mtrs in diameter, 4 mtrs thick and 5 mtrs high! An intriguing system of diagonal runs of steps is leading to the top of the wall.

The Skelligs

Sight Seeing

  • A boat trip to the Skelligs UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must on your holidays in County Kerry! These craggy islands rise dramatically from the ocean 15 kms off the western coast. Little Skellig is a bird reserve, with nearly 20 thousand gannets nesting here each year. The larger Skellig Michael with its cliffs rising over 200 mtrs above the sea once was the westernmost outpost of Christianity in Europe. The monastic settlement consists of two oratories, six beehive huts, church and graveyard, which can all be reached on over 600 steps cut into the rocks. John O'Shea of Skellig Tours has the local islands in his blood. He departs daily for the Skelligs from Derrynane Harbour, weather permitting.
    The Ring of Kerry is a scenic drive around the Iveragh Peninsula. Its 179km-long, circular route takes touches rugged and verdant coastal landscapes and rural seaside villages. Popular points include The Skellig Drive (from Waterville to Portmagee), the Gap of Dunloe and Muckross House (near Killarney), Ross Castle, Lough Leane, and Ladies View (a panoramic viewpoint), are all located within Killarney National Park.
