Brings you the best marine ecotourism experiences in Europe

Emerald-green farmland sliding down to surf-pounded sea cliffs, long golden beaches, colourful villages, mountain peaks…welcome to county Kerry! With its dramatic scenery, including the world-renowned Lakes of Killarney, or the Beara and Dingle peninsulas, you will surely want to stay here for as long as you can.

Located in South-Western Ireland, and part of the Wild Atlantic Way, county Kerry offers everything for the tourist in search of adventure: it is great for walking or cycling, with many long-distance trails and circular routes across the region, deep-sea diving, surfing and angling...and breath taking for marine wildlife watching.

At Killarney National Park, you can visit the 19th-century Muckross House (where Queen Victoria stayed), Ireland’s highest mountain in Carrauntoohil and the glorious Lough Leane. You can also attempt to sight the population of white-tailed eagles!

The Dingle peninsula, where the most famous local is a bottlenose dolphin, with its staggering coastline and its off-shore Blasket Islands, has been called “the most beautiful place on earth” by National Geographic.
