The Islands off the coast of Kerry offer remote wildernesses to explore, a UNESCO World Heritage site, tracks of 350 million year old creatures, towering cliffs, sandy beaches, windswept hills and rare flora and fauna; the problem is deciding what to leave out. The islands of Kerry are alive with literary histories. One of the first chronicles of world history was compiled here, the famous Irish King Brian Boru studied on these Islands, and it was on the Blasket Islands that Peig Sayers wrote of her island life. The spectacularly awesome Skelligs are world renowned for their ornithological and archaeological significance, acknowledged by their World Heritage status and the 27,000 pairs of gannets who have made them their home, the second largest colony of such sea birds in the world.Valentia offers a peak into 350 million years of history through the prints of a dinosaur and Innisfallen tells the tale of a 7th century monastery. Come to hear the tales of these fascinating Islands and marvel at their spectacular locations.
