Kenmare, County Kerry

Where the Kerry Mountains meet the sea is the heritage town of Kenmare. Situated on the famous Ring of Kerry, Kenmare is called the "jewel in the ring."

Although much of Ireland braces against the off-season rains, Kenmare is located in a place where they frequently have warm winter months.

People always seem to have loved where Kenmare is now.

There are pre-historic ruins dating back four thousand years here and Christians found this area long before St. Patrick's arrival.

Kenmare is the perfect place to explore both the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Berra and it is one hour away from the Kerry airport.
