Points of Interest On Our Doorstep
The Wilds of the Atlantic Ocean
In Killarney and along the coastline of Kerry there are a number of inviting and endearing points of interest that whet the appetite. Discovering UNESCO Heritage sites, stunning scenery and the echoes of time past are all part of your holiday in Kerry. Rugged coastlines, cascading waves, golden sandy beaches – all at your fingertips and a short drive away. We’re part of the Wild Atlantic Way, the longest coastline touring route in the world. And you have plenty of choice of beach retreats to get away from it all, from Ballybunion to Kenmare, so go on, get sand between the toes and simply recharge those batteries duriing your Killarney hotel break.
Take a trip along the longest scenic driving route in the world which encompasses the whole west coast of Kerry. The Kerry stage of the Wild Atlantic Way is nearly 450km long and winds through twists and turns from Kenmare to Tarbert. Savour the awe inspiring views as the savage waves of the Atlantic buffet the coastline. The key gems on the route are the world famous Slea Head, the Blasket Islands and the Iveragh Peninsula which encompasses Portmagee and Skellig Michael, where the gripping finale of "Star Wars - The Force Awakens" was filmed.
Take it as it comes, and be amazed at the sheer beauty around you. Seize the day and let us help you create those memories that you will remember forever. Remember that in Kerry, your best dreams will happen when you’re awake.
