Kerry is more than a mere county – it’s a Kingdom
You may have heard of Kerry. Since Queen Victoria visited Killarney over 150 years ago, its mountains, lakes and coasts have been the picture-postcard image of Ireland overseas. And while visitors may argue about their favorite towns, everyone genuflects to the perfection that is the Kerry landscape.
It’s just drop-dead gorgeous.
Where to begin? Killarney National Park, that’s where. Nestling between Killarney and Kenmare, this little pocket harbors the 19th-century Muckross House (where Queen Victoria stayed), Ireland’s highest mountain in Carrauntoohil and the glorious Lough Leane. It’s also privy to a reintroduced population of white-tailed eagles. And all within a patch of land measuring just 15 square miles.
From there, choices unfold like the pages of a fantasy novel. You can let your trip be governed by peninsulas like Dingle or Beara in next door West Cork, or by touring routes such as the Ring of Kerry. You can hit festivals like Puck Fair, presided over by a goat-king, or walk the Kerry Way.
Nobody’s fully sure as to why Kerry is called “The Kingdom”, but the hat certainly fits.
