Kenmare is a small town situated in one of Ireland’s most beautiful counties; Kerry. The Irish name for Kenmare is ‘An Neidín’ meaning ‘the little nest’ which is quite an appropriate name for the gorgeous town as it is nestled on the seashore at the foot of the Cork and Kerry mountains.

Interestingly, one of the largest Bronze Age (2200-500 B.C.) stone circles in south-west Ireland is a stone-throw away from Kenmare. Its amazing construction consists of 15 stones, circling a boulder dolmen.
