Places of Interest in North Kerry

 

Welcome to North Kerry where you can experience the wealthy heritage of this region of the ancient Kingdom of Ciar (from which Kerry derives its name). This formed the material and cultural heritage that survives in the landscape and the society of their many descendants in North Kerry today. This is a varied landscape of ancient deciduous woods, rich pastures, meadows, extensive sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and sea stacks and boglands resonant with lark song and cuckoo calls. This scenic tapestry is further enriched by its amazing survival of medieval architecture in castles, tower houses, abbeys, friaries, churches and holy wells that testify to its vibrant Hiberno-Norman heritage. The culture still echoes in the music, song, poetry, literature, history, folklore, cuisine and sports of the local population.
