Groupon’s Guide To Co. Kerry
Boasting a varied range of land formations, Co. Kerry counts as one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in entire Ireland. Mountains, peninsulas, islands, a dramatic coastline, a host of lakes and the 179km-long Ring of Kerry turn this county into a paradise for globetrotters with a penchant for outdoor leisure.
The dramatic view of Skellig Michael, renowned for its medieval monastery built on cliffs, is a sight not to miss out once in Kerry. On top of this World Heritage Site, travellers can explore the Killarney National Park with its interlinked lakes and unique wildlife, the seemingly otherworldly Mount Brandon on Dingle Peninsula and the Torc Mountain with its scenic Torc Waterfall.
Kerry is also home to some of the clearest skies, offering picturesque views of the Milky Way that everyone should see at least once in their life. Southwest Kerry was named one of only three gold tier International Dark Sky Reserves on Earth earlier this year, alongside The Grand Canyon and The African Savannah.
