Kenmare, Ireland is a haven of tranquillity, gourmet food, superb accommodation and breathtaking scenery in one of the most natural, unspoilt environments in Europe. Cradled in the heart of Kenmare Bay, the picturesque town of Kenmare is the perfect location from which to discover the South West of Ireland, linking the internationally famous Ring of Kerry with the rugged Ring of Beara.
The Ring of Kerry is stunning in its own right, its beaches are some of the finest in Europe. The bounty of Iron Age forts, stone circles, ruins and rugged coasts and the many cultural museums and centres make it a must see for anyone visiting in the area. The Blue Pool Nature Reserve is a hidden gem. The Gap of Dunloe is a once in a lifetime experience, take a jaunting cart. Skellig Michael is a tripp that can be life altering, if you are there on the first boat over and have a quiet time to absorb all of its offerings.
To the north of Kenmare is the Killarney National Park, 10,000 hectares of woodland and magical mountains, with spectacular views of the lakes of Killarney. Angling, shooting, golf, tennis, boating, sailing, surfing, mountaineering, hill climbing, walking, cycling – within this wild and beautiful peninsula, can all be enjoyed.
The unspoiled Ring of Beara lies to the south of Kenmare. Its rugged beauty is beyond compare, traffic is minimal and it abounds with archeological sites and spectacular views.
