One of the things County Kerry is most noted for is The Ring
of Kerry. This is a hundred mile route around the Iveragh
Peninsula, which is one of the world's great scenic drives.
This route, a mixture of rugged mountains, winding valleys
and dramatic seascapes, begins and ends in Killarney.
A great place to pay a visit to is Muckross House,
Killarney. This is an impressive 19th-century manor with a
Portland stone exterior. Here you'll see exhibits of Kerry
folk life, including
ancient forms of harvesting, printing, pottery, weaving and
hand-carved period furniture.
The subtropical gardens and the nature walks offer a fine
example of the beauty and serenity of County Kerry.
Kerry is as rich in history as it is in scenery, and a
whole holiday can easily be spent just exploring this
county of Ireland.
