Muckross Abbey

Do & See

The ancient Kingdom of Kerry lies on the very edge of Europe - once believed to be the edge of the world, “Next parish, Manhattan” is a local phrase. This far-flung place is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Lively towns with a strong traditional culture combine with some of the world's most beautiful coastline scenery in this unique place.
