South Kerry offers much to the outdoor enthusiast, being within walking distance of the Kerry Way and just an hour's drive from Carrantouhill which at 1041m is Ireland's highest peak (only 44m lower than Snowdon!). Cycle routes criss-cross South Kerry and there is ample opportunity for horse-riding.

Golfers are well-served with the internationally renowned Waterville links and Skelligs Bay golf courses a ten-minute drive away.

The Atlantic coastline offers spectacular rugged cliffs and outstanding beaches. Surfers enjoy empty breaks and regular swells, whilst anglers have ample opportunity to indulge thanks to local boat trips at sea, and on the stunning Lough Currane.

Nearby we have a fantastic riding school specialising in childrens lessons, beach treks and lessons for beginner and experienced riders. These horses graze at Carey's from time to time.

Examples of Kerry's many and diverse archeological remains from the pre-Christian Ogham stones, through the mysterious ring forts to Great Famine-era farmhouses and churches.

The Skellig Island monastery is an awe-inspiring day trip on a fine day Valentia Island and Port Magee are charming departure points. The area is well served by traditional pubs year-round, and good quality restaurants in the summer period, when you will be able to find live music most nights.

Seasonal attractions include The Cahirciveen Celtic Music Festival and Killorglin's legendary Puck Fair that traces its roots back to pre-Christian times.

Migratory birds often use this part of Ireland as the last or first land mass before the Americas and make welcome additions to an exciting and diverse array of wildlife that includes deer, sea eagles, whales and dolphins.
