Kerry airport serves the county of Kerry which is located at the very south eastern point of Ireland. The County of Kerry is a magical place and is often referred to as The Kingdom'. It benefits from the moderate climate which Gulf Stream brings and is a wonderful place to visit, really at any time of the year. One of the main attractions in Kerry is the Ring of Kerry, which is an extremely scenic tourist trail which covers about 170 kms, in a circular route, hence the name ring. There are some beautiful sights to be seen and culturally, it is very interesting, since this is rural Ireland at its very best and at its most scenic.
There are some great walks to be had along the ring, or if you are feeling adventurous, you could do the whole thing by bike. This is a great way to see people and sights that you would simply miss if you whizzed past in a car! One of the other main attractions is the area which has the Lakes of Killarney. These are 3 lakes, near the town of Killarney, which are very scenic and quite atmospheric. A very relaxing place to spend some time and just soak up the peace and tranquility of this entire locality. Killarney is also a fabulous place to visit. It is home to not just the Lakes, but also Killarney National Park, as well as Muckross House, which is a historic building, completed in 1843 and was formerly a mansion but is now under the management of the state. It gives an excellent insight into how the Irish aristocracy lived in the 19th Century. The Black Valley is also worth a visit. This is a very remote area in the Macgillycuddy's Reeks area of Kerry and is like stepping back in time. Indeed you may feel like you are in a time warp and it is also very peaceful and relaxed. Ross Castle is another must see' this was a tower/castle, which was built in the 15th Century and today has been completely restored and is a very imposing building, with a great collection of antique furniture, much of which dates back to the 18th and 19th Centuries. While you are in Kerry, you must also make time to stop, do nothing and sit in a pub or bar, just soaking up the music and the ambience and having some great food. This really is a lovely part of the world and to enjoy it to its full potential, you have to be prepared to stop rushing, to simply unwind and take joy in what you see and meet the locals and hear their tales. The food is great here and the proximity to the sea means that there are some great seafood dishes available, many of which are very modern slants on classic dishes. But all are usually extremely delicious. So just simply chill out and go with the flow: you will be so glad you came! Who flies to Kerry?
