Southern Peninsulas

EDGE OF THE WORLD

Memorable experiences in Ireland's far south west

REGION: SOUTH KERRY TO WEST CORK

In Ireland’s beautiful far South West – where the ancient Kingdom of Kerry meets wild West Cork – five great peninsulas with mountainous spines stretch miles out into the ocean. This is great walking country, with long-distance trails and circular routes across the region. Hugging the coast, or crossing Ireland’s highest mountains, breathtaking views unfold at every turn. It’s the furthest west in all Ireland: “next parish Manhattan”, they say here. And there’s a distinctly edge-of-the-world feel to the Southern Peninsulas, as both the mainland and everyday life are left far behind.

You could find yourself paddle-boarding with dolphins, landing on a deserted archipelago once home to Ireland’s greatest born-storytellers, taking a cable car with the ocean crashing below, sailing to a World Heritage Site named in Lonely Planet Best In Travel 2017's top 10 regions to visit, visiting an abandoned copper mine, or star-gazing under Ireland’s darkest skies. Memorable – sometimes life-changing – experiences are ahead.
