Locally known as "The Kingdom," County Kerry is one of Ireland's most popular tourist destinations, both for its stunning topography and world famous golf courses. With three peninsulas jetting out into the Atlantic Ocean, County Kerry is also one of the most mountainous areas of Ireland. The Ring of Kerry, a 120-mile circuit around the Iveragh Peninsula in south Kerry, is the most famous route for sightseeing in Kerry. It passes through the towns of Killarney, Killorglin, Glenbeigh, Caherciveen, Waterville, Sneed and Kenmare. Just off the coast are a number of islands, including Skellig Michael, a World Heritage site. On the Dingle Peninsula, you'll find the harbor town of Dingle, which is loaded with great pubs, restaurants and shops.
Many consider County Kerry Ireland's best spot for golf, especially links courses. Thirty-six hole Ballybunion, where tour players love to stop at on their way to the British Open, might be the most famous, but it's hardly the last option. Arnold Palmer's Tralee Golf Club, Waterville Golf Links, Kenmare and Sneem are also outstanding and memorable choices.
