Take the SLEA HEAD DRIVE around the coast towards and visit the BEEHIVE HUTS, these round stone built structures would have been inhabited from ancient times to 1200AD. There is also the excellent and informative FAMINE COTTAGE, which gives you glimpse into the struggle to survive in this part of Ireland in the past.

The road offers breathtaking views of countryside and sea. On a clear day you can see out to the SKELLIG ISLANDS which were once a monastic community. But be warned, being able to see the SKELLIGS is suppose to be a warning that bad weather is on its way.


 

THE DINGLE PENINSULA has something for everyone : there's bird watching, riding, hiking, walking, climbing, sailing, history, archaeology, music, art, culture, and some of the most beautiful, spectacular scenery in all of Ireland. The beauty of COUNTY KERRY is said to lie in the unique combination of 'The Mountains and the Sea'. The saying is certainly proved to be true here at KILMALKEDAR.
