Holiday rentals and lettings in County Kerry
County Kerry is simply amazing! It is home to Ireland's most iconic scenery, with surf-pounded sea cliffs and soft golden strands, emerald-green farmland interlaced by stone walls, mist-shrouded bogs and rugged mountain peaks. Find a holiday rental in one of the region’s charming towns such as Killarney or Kenmare, or opt for one of the many picturesque coastal villages such as Portmagee and Kells, the latter which affords ridiculous views over the beautiful Dingle bay and Blasket Islands.Tradition and modern lettings in memorable locations
Rent a traditional stone-walled Irish rental nestled between mountains on one side, and the sea on the other, then sit out on the patio or garden and take in the unique views of this mysterious land. Or go for a bright, modern property fitted with all modern conveniences to ensure your comfort, such as underfloor heating and a sauna. Or if there are just two of you, opt for one of the many cozy, urban lettings in towns like Killarney, finished to the highest of standards.

The area and getting around
Most people fly to Kerry via Shannon or Kerry Airport, both which link to major cities across Europe. Kerry is a county that constitutes the south-west of Ireland and which houses Ireland’s most rugged coastline and highest mountains. Right in the middle is Killarney, the most popular town to visit in the county, full to the brim with bars, restaurants, and a fascinating history and culture.The myriad villages of County Kerry
Explore the wonderful village of the ancient land! Caherdaniel offers its lucky visitors colourful houses and deep waterways, white beaches and clear crystal waters. Ballinskelligs is the ideal village to immerse yourself in the traditional Irish culture, where Gaelic is the predominant language. Beaufort is home to over 100 historic attractions, most notably Old Dunloe Castle and Corr Castle. These are just three of oh so many to explore and discover at your own leisure.
Travellers and activities
Carrauntoohil, the highest point in the country, is the number one choice for hikers in Kerry. It is a strenuous but highly rewarding 4 to 6 hour climb up to its 1,039 metre peak. To get off the beaten track, step away from the famous peaks and you’ll find wild, rough lands, and a glorious scenery of lakes, glens, and ancient oak woodlands. Step even further away and you’ll reach the coast, where the sea has smashed the land apart; the hills end abruptly in spectacular cliffs hundreds of metres high, and the coves and islands combine with the gentle pace of life and famous Irish hospitality to provide a truly monumental experience.Kerry for surfers
Kerry is Ireland's secret surf kingdom, with endless stretches of wild, sandy beaches and brilliant Atlantic breaks. Try your hand at surfing on the remarkable Inch beach. One of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in Ireland, surfing here will be an experience you will treasure until the end of times. Beginners can sign up for once-off surf lesson at Offshore Surf School.
