A couple of weeks ago I brought you the first part of my amazing trip to Ireland where I talked about Belfast and Dublin.  This time I thought I would move to the countryside and share with you my love for Kerry.

To me, Kerry truly is a magical region in Ireland, from  its lakes to its mountains to its quaint towns.  There is just so much to see and do here and I absolutely love it!

If I had to name my favorite town in Kerry, it would have to be Kenmare.  When you think of a quintessentially quaint town in Ireland, Kenmare ticks all the boxes.  Not to mention that in such a small town there are so many amazing restaurants and pubs.  Aside from Kenmare, there are other great towns too like Killarney and Sneem.

There are also beautiful bodies of water in the Kerry region like Caragh Lake and the Lakes of Killarney.

As well as beautiful sites to see such as the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, and Ring of Beara.  You could spend the days going on the different hiking trails, taking a boat out on the lake, and exploring the amazing history and culture of Kerry.

Another reason why I love Ireland…the hydrangeas, which are my favorite flower.  I have never seen such beautiful blooms before and they seem to really flourish in Kerry.
