Kerry Airport

Airport travel guide

Located in the southwest of Ireland, County Kerry is a part of the historical Munster region. Known for its scenic islands and peninsulas, monasteries, and strong traditions, this is Ireland how many foreign visitors imagine it. These are three of the region’s most interesting destinations:

  • Killarney. A cozy town of about 15,000 inhabitants that punches way above its size when it comes to tourist attractions, Killarney is probably the most visited place in all of Munster. The town itself has plenty of landmarks such as Muckross Abbey and Killarney House and Gardens, but those with a rental car will be glad to learn it’s also a gateway to the Ring of Kerry, one of the most scenic drives in all of Ireland. The drive to Killarney from Kerry Airport takes only about 20 minutes.
  • Cork. Despite its name originally meaning a marsh or a bog in the native Irish language, Cork is both Ireland's second city and one of its liveliest and most interesting destinations. Characterized by scenic architecture and landmarks like the Blackrock Castle Observatory and English Market, it is also home to a busy nightlife and vibing cultural scene. The drive from Kerry Airport takes about 90 minutes.
  • Killarney National Park. Not only the first national park in Ireland but also one of its most scenic nature preserves, this is another local gem. The area is characterized by hills, lakes, wetlands, and oak growths, and a diversity of fauna and flora. The national park is immediately to the south of the town of Killarney.

Kerry is absolutely beautiful ! Weather permitting, it is one of the nicest places you can go. So many beaches to choose from, all with their own uniqueness. Also, kilarney is unreal, the lake is very similar to one of the lakes in the Cumbrian lake district. So much to see within a small distance of travel.
