County Kerry Travel Tips & Suggestions

I visited Black Valley on my honeymoon and it is a fantastic place - real magic!!
Killarney's a good base for the Ring of Kerry, however it is the hugest tourist trap I've ever seen. Worse then Disneyworld. I suggest you visit any small town within the country and rub elbows with the farmers to experience the "real" Ireland.
I think that Ballinskelligs is the most beautiful place that I have seen and the people are so nice and friendly lovely place to have a holiday when you get the weather!
Apparently the town can be spelled Cahirciveen, Cahersiveen, or Caherciveen. Take your pick.
Dingle is a small village with 52 pubs!
I love Tralee. It is very cute. A lovely, calm, and quiet town.
The Black Valley, hidden away in a remote valley in Macgillycuddy's Reeks, can be difficult to find but well worth the adventure. Considered part of the Ring of Kerry (though not directly on the Ring of Kerry route), the Black Valley is both breathtakingly scenic and beautifully tranquil; it's the perfect place to get …
Located on the secluded north side of Dingle Peninsula in the Maharees, Castlegregory is a tiny village that is difficult to reach, but worth the journey.

Annascaul, a tiny village on Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland; located halfway between the town of Dingle and the mainland, Annascaul sits on the way to Dingle when driving on the southern part of the peninsula. For a quiet getaway, Annascaul is an excellent destination. For adventurers, the rest of Dingle …
Kenmare, a seaside town on the west coast of Ireland, is nestled between the Beara Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry, in the south of County Kerry. There aren’t as many tourists in town as there are in Killarney, but it still does attract the occasional tour buses loaded with Australian and American tourists. There is a …
County Kerry's Killarney is a popular tourist stop, and in the summer the streets are crowded with tour buses. Finding a place to stay in a Killarney hostel shouldn't be too much of a problem during weeknights, but call ahead to get a bed on the weekend as it can get fairly crowded. Tourism seems to go back decades ago …
The town of Dingle, located on Dingle Peninsula, is a quaint place, but sits in the heart of one of the most scenic places in Ireland. It is best reached by car, but Bus Eireann also runs in the town. The nearest train stations are in Tralee or Killarney, and tour buses don't frequent the roads like they do the Ring of …
