NORTH KERRY is rich in history and heritage, a land alive in mythology and legend. It’s landscape is scored in the stories of kingdom’s rising and falling; of clan clashes, the spoils and scars of conquests won and lost. It’s here you’ll find a microcosm of the Irish story, from ancient Celtic kings to the testaments to burgeoning Christianity, the towering bastions of medieval power right through to the struggle for independence in more modern times.
For the keen or casual historian the only question is where to visit first. A treasure trove of past relics, from the ancient ogham stones and ring forts to the castles, churches and monasteries of medieval times, all this and a whole lot more awaits.
