Cahersiveen is a Gaelic word that means the “Little Stone Fort of Sive.” It is a town in Ireland that is located on the Iveragh Peninsular. It is known to be one of the single most important stops when touring the Ring of Kerry. The town is surrounded by mountains and is located right next to the bank of the River Feartha. With just over 1000 people in the town, it is the main center and marketplace for the countryside surrounding it.

Stay at one of the few hostels and homestays in and around Cahersiveen. The hostels are quite affordable, and the people running them welcome your stay with true Irish hospitality. Some of the original houses from the village of five, dated from 1815, are still present today. While you cannot stay in them, you can look for hostels nearby. This way, you can pay a visit to the older buildings whenever you want a taste of the town’s rich history.

Cahersiveen was expanded in 1824, after the road from Mountain Stage was completed. A year later, a pier was constructed and the fishing industry in the town began to boom. By 1840, fishing and the railway network worked in tandem to improve the quality of life for the residents of the town. Tourists started pouring in by the 1950s to view the many archaeological sites in and around the town.

One of the best places to experience the history of the town is at the old Royal Irish Constabulary Barracks. This building was constructed in 1875, and it is now a museum and visitor’s center. If you want to explore the local area, try visiting one of the many sand beaches either on foot or on horseback. You can walk among the hills as well, as there are many walking trails near the town. Bicycles are also available for rent if you would prefer to cycle along the many trails.
