    County Kerry Warnings and Dangers

    Not exactly a danger, unless you are hiking and completley unprepared, but as you can imagine the weather here can change in an instant! The higher you go into the mountains, the wetter it gets and the closer you are to the coast the windier it gets!!! This will not spoil your trip, but will add to the scenery and atmosphere! Honestly, a place you...

  • Driving

    DRIVING.Remember to think RURAL, in Kerry. It makes for a different sort of driving.Look out for things like:- Sheep and wild mountain goats that are frequently found walking along (or across) the road.Slow moving tractors and farm machinery that may be around that sharp bend.Allow time for the same long, slow vehicle to cross the road, if it...

  • Be on time!

    If you take a Bus Eireann tour of the Ring of Kerry, or in fact any other, make sure that you come back to your coach by the agreed time. The trips are long and the driver has no time to waste waiting for latecomers. On my first trip, two of the tourists, one of them American, were left behind already in Macroom, our first stop. One managed to...

  • Food and Cash Can Sometimes be Hard to...

    Arriving in Dingle on the Monday of a Bank Holiday weekend last August, we encountered some unexpected problems. We chose a restaurant for lunch, ordered and then noticed on the menu that credit cards ( not even laser cards ) were not accepted. My husband went to the ATM up the street but it was out of order. Same thing for every ATM in town and...

  • Refrain from shouting at the driver

    We rented a car for our trip. We're Americans, and therefore not used to driving on the left. Take the time to practice a little (if possible) before leaving the parking lot. The passenger should remind themselves that the roads might be a little narrower then you're used to and that the driver isn't trying to drive into the bushes or scrape the...

  • Don't give up!

    If you start driving the Ring of Kerry in a clockwise direction, beginning at Kenmare, don't give up! The road is very narrow and wind-y, but the views are gorgeous. And the road gets much better once you're on the northern part of the peninsula. I sat with someone on the airplane who gave up halfway along the southern part of the Ring and...

    Tralee is a friendly town with a buzzing nightlife scene and good live music venues. The people are friendly and if you are travelling on your own you won't be on your own for long. Obviously like any place Tralee has it's fair share of crime but in general it's a safe place. Good place to start is the Brogue Inn on Rock street. They have...

Tralee originally formed part of the ancient kingdom of 'Ciar' which dates from the first century. By the 12th. century Tralee had grown as a fortified town and was the seat of the Earls of Desmond.

  • Connor Pass, Dingle.

    Connor Pass, Dingle. Do not even consider driving up that way on a bad day. First of all you are not going to see anything, anyway, and secondly the road is very narrow and in places has a sheer drop down the mountain on one side with a towering wall of rock on the other. Highly recommended on a fine day, though.

    CO. KERRYWatch out for Kerry drivers ;-) If they overtake you with 90 mph on a very narrow street you sometimes think your final day has come ;-)
