Ireland offers huge choice for your motorhome holiday. If you are looking for idyllic and picturesque scenery, this beautiful country provides you with vast choice. With so many wonderful locations to choose from, it can be difficult to decide on the route to take.
One fantastic and popular location is the South Kerry Coastline. Kerry boasts mountains, lakes and an Atlantic coastline and is quite simply one of the most scenic Irish locations. It manages to combine the rugged grandeur of Scotland, the mild climate of North West France and the beautiful beaches of the Algarve.
When you take this favoured tourist trail some of the most exquisite coastal scenery opens up before you. It offers long stretches of sand, secluded coves and a host of distant islands just waiting to be explored. Kerry offers two beaches that prove extremely popular. Derrynane can be found close to Catherdaniel and consists of white sand and rock pools. When the tide goes out you can take a stroll over to the atmospheric ruins of the abbey. Derrynane House offers easy and ample parking, a museum and restaurant.
If you head further up the coast, you will discover Rossbeigh Beach which stretches out for three miles towards the Dingle Peninsula. The mountains and village of Glenbeigh provide a stunning backdrop and a walk along the sand and back along the dunes offers sensational views and peaceful solitude to enjoy the glorious sunset.
You can indulge in exploration of the waters with the regular boat trips that run from several County Kerry points. You can set sail to the islands of Skellig Michael, Valentia and Great Blasket. Skellig Michael was made a World Heritage Site in 1996 and is simply steeped in rich history. It has been described as having “exceptional universal value” and part of the up and coming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens was shot at Skellig Michael in 2014. Every year there are 13 tour operators in total granted a boat license which ensures every tourist has the opportunity to visit this incredible island.
The South Kerry Coastline offers many local campsites to set up temporary residence in your motorhome. County Kerry is bounded on the west by the Atlantic Ocean and on the north by the River Shannon. With its many peninsulas and inlets and impressive mountain range it is one of the most visually striking locations in the country. Due to its milder temperatures, it offers a unique environment for subtropical plants such as the strawberry tree to thrive. This stunning location proves to be a success time and time again as it has a multitude of benefits to offer every travelling holidaymaker.
