Traditionally, this is Ireland's premier tourist destination and is located in the south-west of the country. Known as The Kingdom, Kerry has some of the best leisure facilities and attractions in the country. It is divided into two distinct areas by its terrain - North Kerry has green rolling hills and sandy beaches, while to the south and west is a magnificent rugged mountainous landscape, dotted with lakes and numerous ancient sites.
Visitors to Kerry can enjoy world class golf at Wine Strand, Dingle, Ballybunion, Killarney and Waterville, superb accommodation in the Ballyferrirer area and indeed across the county, excellent watersports, angling, including sea angling, horse riding, cycling and hill walking. Traditional Irish entertainment and music is also to be found in many locations, especially in the Gaeltacht or Irish speaking areas of the county.
Tralee is the county capital, although Killarney has long been one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland. The Rose of Tralee festival takes place here each year at the end of August and is participated in by an international audience. Other significant towns are Dingle, Kenmare, Ballybunion, Cahirciveen, Listowel, Castleisland, Sneem, Farranfore, Killorglin, Waterville and Fenit.
Killarney is a lovely attraction. With its beautiful lakes, a national park and so much to see and do around the town itself, it offers much to entertain all the family. Nearby is the spectacular Dingle peninsula, as is the Ring of Kerry, both of which await discovery.

The route is clearly identified by road signs throughout its length. To properly enjoy the Drive, a half-day should be set aside for the journey.
The Blasket Islands lie off the west coast. They are famous for the literary and linguistic heritage of their former inhabitants. However, these remote islands have been uninhabited now since the 1950s.
