County Kerry

County Kerry (Contae Chiarraí – origin disputed) (pop. 140,000), one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland, calls itself  “The Kingdom”.  The county has  remarkable  mountain landscapes and a heavily indented Atlantic coastline, noted for its scenic peninsulas and islands.  The Irish Gaelic language is still spoken in rural Gaeltacht areas, and old traditions of music, song, dance and storytelling are alive and well.
