Beautiful Irish Scenery Of County Kerry By Drone
Lonely Planet describes County Kerry as follows;
County Kerry contains some of Ireland’s most iconic scenery: surf-pounded sea cliffs and soft golden strands, emerald green farmland crossed by tumbledown stone walls, mist shrouded bogs and cloud torn mountain peaks.
With one of the country’s finest national parks as its backyard, the lively tourism hub of Killarney spills over with colorful shops, restaurants and pubs loud with spirited trad music. The town is the jumping-off point for Kerry’s two famed loop drives: the larger Ring of Kerry skirts the mountainous, island fringed Iveragh Peninsula.
Dingle Peninsula is like a condensed version of its southern neighbor, with ancient Christian sites, sandy beaches and glimpses of a hard, unforgiving land.
Kerry’s exquisite beauty makes it one of Ireland’s most popular tourist destinations. But if you need to escape from the crowds, there’s always a mountain pass, an isolated cove or an new trail to discover.
