Shanahill Bridge, Kerry, Ireland

We are on the 561 South coastal road heading towards Dingle. The views are of Castlemaine harbour & the Iveragh Peninsula & behind the house there is easy access to the Slieve Mish mountains. The local beaches such as Inch strand & the historic Minard Castle are 10 minutes drive away and generally there are a great deal of hill walks, water activities & authentic local pubs with live music in our area. Killorglin is our closest small town just 15 minutes drive & is where the Ring of Kerry begins,it is also famous for Puck fair in August. Killarney to the South is just 25 minutes drive away with the National Park, Muckross & Ross Castle. The Lakes & Ladies view is on the dramatic pass through the mountains to the quaint & colourful town of Kenmare. Dingle 20 miles to the West is a pretty harbour town with a hinterness of stunning scenery, islands, ancient monuments, mountains & beaches - & of course there is Fungi the 35 year old dolphin who swims in Dingle bay. You can easily spend a week in this area and make trips to Dingle and beyond[ Dingle is a 30 minutes drive], there are great boat trips around the islands which include dolphin and whale watching trips with knowledgeable sea rangers. The walks around Dingle are extensive and they include beaches such as Binban or the Crystal beach, tidal so do watch the tides, and of course the documented Dingle Way which is all over the Dingle peninsula.
The kerry ring begins 20 minutes away in Killorglin anti clockwise you can take a drive to the exotic gardens in Kells bay shop in Cahersiveen, explore Valentia and Ballinskelligs and possibly take a boat trip to the Skelligs rock, the eight century monastic settlement . Thirty minutes away the clockwise trip of the ring of kerry is via killarney, the lakes , kenmare & Sneem and there you could cut home for an interesting pass route through the Macgillicuddy reeks.
The Beara peninsula begins in kenmare which is 1 hours drive away, from there you can easily go to Castletownbere and even as far as the tip, Allihies, that would be a longish drive but easily doable in a planned day and all stunning and very diverse scenery. Bantry Bay is 40 minutes from Kenmare and can also be a day trip.
Cork city is 1.5 hours away and also a nice day trip, Likewise Blarney Castle is about the same.
There is of course North kerry and coastal areas including Fenit which was the harbour St, Brendan sailed to the Americas from, and the port of many of the hunger ships which left kerry during the famine and further around the coast is Kerry Head and the Well of st. Brigit, healing for the eyes.
Inch beach is five minutes drive away and a stunning-5 miles walk on silky soft sand, with ancient dune formations which archeologists visit world wide, the peaceful beauty of Annascaul lake - is just 15 minutes drive away and in the pretty village Annascaul is the homestead of the hero Tom Crean the Arctic explorer. Along the headland is Minard beach with the remains of a Norman castle. Two miles from home is Caherconree mountain a promontory fort on the scenic pass route to Camp, a spectacular mountain and a safe marked mountain hike- or there are a great deal of walks closer to home in our own Slieve Mish Mountains as well as short walks which take you down to Castlemaine harbour.
There are also reasonably priced guided walks around the Killarney national park on a daily basis and lake trips to Ross Castle, jaunting trips in a trap around the park as well as historical building such as muckross House and the cathedral.
we have not yet mentioned the night life which includes quality traditional music in various pubs and venues in the small towns and rural areas.
