The Kingdom
Forming Ireland's southwestern corner, County Kerry encompasses world-renowned landmarks like the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula and features the major city of Killarney at its heart. As a peripheral part of the country, County Kerry supports a thriving traditional Irish culture, including the Irish language, music, and dance. Nearly 5,000 native Irish speakers reside in the area, concentrated in two large Gaeltachts known as Corca Dhuibhne and Uibh Rathach. Many visitors come to enjoy the rugged beauty of Kerry's coastline, lakes, and mountains. Several picturesque walking routes wind their way through the landscape, giving tourists the chance to engage deeply with its untamed nature.
