Ballinskelligs and Waterville area
The Kerry Cliffs

The sandy beach is in short walking distance and supervised in the season. It offers all kinds of water activities. Waterville has a golf course, while walkers and cyclists can enjoy a number of walking and cycling trails from the house. More about the activities on the next page!

Waterville is 10 mins away and sits between Ballinskelligs Bay and Lough Currane. It is the premier coastal touring centre on the Ring of Kerry and has attracted many famous celebrities over the years, including Charlie Chaplin and his family, still well remembered in the town. All around are lovely beaches and fine walks. There are shops and pubs as well as an excellent choice of restaurants - from budget to fine cuisine - with seafood being a specialty in many of them. Lake Currane is not only a favourite spot for anglers but also well known for Church Island with the ruins of a 6th century oratory.

The Ring of Kerry panoramic route has long been one of the favorite sightseeing tours of Ireland and is leading around the Iveragh Peninsula passing through a succession of magnificent landscapes. The Skellig Ring is part of the Wild Atlantic Way and leads through Ballinskelligs and beautiful mountain scenery further on to the Kerry Cliffs, Portmagee and Valentia Island. The spectacular views past St.Finan's Bay include the Skellig Islands (more on the next page).
