Kerry is home to the highest mountains in the country, some of the largest forests, and also features an important cultural history, which is particularly significant to the locals, meaning the area is a highly recommended place to visit. The largest town in Kerry and the most convenient place to begin your tour of the area is Killarney, located near the shores of Lough Leane, the largest lake in the region. Before leaving, make sure you fit in a visit to Ross Castle, found just a short drive south-west of the town centre, on the shores of the lake. Built in the 15th century, the castle is in superb condition and offers an insight into how the wealthy chieftains of the area once lived.
Follow the tourist route south-west of the town, which will soon have you driving through Killarney National Park, the oldest national park in Ireland. This is the largest native forest in the whole country and is home to plenty of rare animals such as Red Deer, as well as vast species of birdlife. As you follow the Ring of Kerry, you will come across a great number of historical sites, including the ruins of ancient forts, castles and abbeys, as well as charming towns and villages.
