Visitor Attractions

Kerry has traditionally been Ireland's premier tourist County, chiefly because of its spectacular physical features. Killarney and its hinterland is probably one of the best known tourist destinations in Europe. The whole South Kerry area, together with the Dingle Peninsula are also very prominent tourist destinations. Many new visitor attractions have been developed in recent years, particularly in the Tralee area, such as The Geraldine Centre, Kerry County Museum, Blennerville Windmill , Tralee Aqua Dome and Wetlands Centre

Other visitor attractions are being developed in various locations to add to the already well-known places of interest, such as Muckross House, and Muckross Interpretative Centre, Ardfert Cathedral, Gallarus Oratory, the Siamsa Tíre Theatre, the Skellig Experience and the Great Blasket Island Interpretative Centre,Tarbert Bridewell and Heritage Centre, Dingle Marina and Aquarium, and The Barracks, Caherciveen.
