Photographer's Note

County Kerry, traditionally known as the 'kingdom', is situated in the extreme south-west of Ireland. Kerry has two contrasting types of terrain - the mountainous south with the Beara, Iveragh and Dingle peninsulas, and the smaller 'plains' area that stretches as far north as the Shannon estuary. Along the coast, sandy bays alternate with cliffs and rocky headlands. You'll also see regions of outstanding scenic beauty, such as the Ring of Kerry.
No trip to Kerry is complete without including the panoramic Ring of Kerry drive on the Iveragh Peninsula. It stretches South West from Killarney for 65km (40 miles) and takes you through the towns of Kenmare, Sneem, Waterville, Cahirciveen, Glenbeigh, and Killorglin.

The Dingle Peninsula stretches Westward for 50 km (30 miles) from Tralee to Dunquin. The western end of the Peninsula has magnificent coastal scenery and is an Irish speaking district. However, scenery is by no means Kerry's only attraction; there are many coastal resorts with excellent angling, great cycling, superb golf courses and a wealth of ancient monuments.
Many famous festival are held in Kerry each year. Listowel has its Writers Week, Tralee offers the famous Rose Festival, Killorglin the Puck Fair.
