South West Ireland – Cork and Kerry holidays

Over millennia the Atlantic Ocean has sculpted the South West coast of Ireland into spectacular jagged headlands, sheltered bays and sandy beaches. With over 100 islands scattered off the coastline this area has much to offer.

The south west coast of Cork and Kerry is home to a fascinating array of people, attracted by its wild and isolated beauty and welcoming communities. Here you will find some of the world’s best artisan food producers, discover world famous visual artists and hear inspiring music from internationally renowned Irish musicians. It is a wild landscape that has given rise to resilient Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) cultures and rich ecosystems.

Cork City, one of Europe’s cultural capitals and Ireland’s second largest city, has a unique rebellious nature all of its own. They call it the capital of the rebel county and the locals assert their independence through an intense pride of their excellent restaurants, chic bars, lively pubs, Murphy’s Irish stout and great music.

Kerry, often referred to as “The Kingdom” has a list of much see attractions, such as the famous Ring of Kerry, The Gap of Dunloe and the Skellig Islands. With one of the country’s natural park in it backward, the lively town of Killarney is an excellent spot to experience some of the highlights of what Ireland as to offer.
