Map of South West Ireland
Counties of South West Ireland

The largest county in Ireland, nicknamed the Rebel County! Castles and manor houses dot the countryside, the world famous Blarney Castle, allegedly the source of the Irish ability to charm in conversation. It offers a landscape of unparalleled beauty, a coast with centers for sailing, swimming, scuba diving with golf.

Known as the Kingdom for its breathtaking scenery! It is home to the Ring of Kerry skirting the Iveragh Peninsula, fringed by islands scattered offshore & the compact Dingle Peninsula with ancient sites, sandy beaches and glimpses of a hard, unforgiving land. This is a Kingdom where monks built crazy beautiful beehive huts on Skellig Michael and its home to Killarney National Park which harbors the 19th-century Muckross House.

From ancient settlements to medieval splendor, abbeys to castles, County Limerick is home to ancient sites and monuments including King John`s Castle in the City of Limerick and the round towers at Ardpatrick and Dysert. Lough Gur is one of the most important archaeological sites in Ireland, revealing Neolithic life some 5,000 years ago.

Experiences & Adventures

Ireland`s countryside is dotted with castles that range from romantic castles and towers that are in ruins to stately chieftain castles and Irish castle hotels. They are all filled with character and history.

The Emerald Isle of Ireland has some of the most beautiful public and private gardens in the world. We recommend that you take time to `stop and smell the roses` during your journey. Remember – all of Ireland is a garden.

The Heritage Towns of Ireland are towns and villages that offer unique character provided by a combination of architectural styles, often spanning many centuries, which gives them a special feeling for the past.
