The Blasket Islands are a group of intriguing islands off the west coast of Ireland which were inhabited by a completely Irish-speaking natives until 1953. No longer inhabited, the islands are unspoiled and the beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world.
A number of books have been written about these fascinating islands and include famous Irish authors such as Peig Sayers: ‘Peig’ and Thomás Ó Criomhthain: ‘The Islandman’.
The Dingle Peninsula is the most northern point of the key peninsulas in County Kerry at Dunmore Head but is considered the most westerly point in Ireland and possibly Europe too. It is known as “Corca Dhuibhne” in the Irish language which means “tribe of Duibhne”, the residence of the area. The entire area is steeped is history, mythology and Irish culture.
The town of Dingle sits on the Atlantic coast of Ireland and is very close to Tralee and Killarney. It is situated in a “Gaelacht” which means it is an Irish speaking region for a traditional vacation in Ireland.
Killarney (Cill Airne in Irish) is a vibrant town in the heart of county Kerry Ireland. It’s also the Gateway to the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula, taking a private Irish guided tour gives you the freedom to explore this unique lively place situated in Killarney National Park. Features include: Muckross House, Lady’s View, Torc Waterfall, Ross Castle and much more. Enjoy Killarney at your own pace and take your time at each location with your Irish personal driver.
Another place of interest in Kerry is Slea Head, which has one of the most requested sightseeing destinations and film settings, Dunquinn Beach. Movie enthusiasts will be able to walk in the foot steps of film stars and see exactly where the legendary movie, Ryan’s Daughter, was captured. Your personal Irish chauffeur can show you the spectacular views nearby but none so impressive as the views overlooking the Blasket Islands.
The famine cottages are located in Slea Head and are an incredible example of traditional Irish construction techniques from the early 19th century. They were constructed using mud and stone and usually consisted of two rooms and a loft or mezzanine. The mezzanine was accessed using a ladder. Today the famine cottages are used for working sheepdog performances which are truly entertaining for everyone on a family vacation in Ireland.
Also on Slea Head is the promontory fort (1,000 BC approx), Dun Beag Fort. Although its exact build date is unknown, it is thought to have been built around the same time as blockhouse forts in Scotland in the Iron age and is resident to the remarkable Bee Hive Huts.
While visiting Kerry, a trip to the Gap of Dunloe is highly recommended. The Gap of Dunloe is also known as the gap of the common land, here the roads are narrow so the traditional jaunting cars (horse and buggy) would be perfect! It takes you through the mountains, beautiful lakes and valleys of Kerry. At the summit of the mountain, a light lunch is highly recommended at the Lord Mount Brandon’s Cottage.
