Transports in Kerry

Flying to Kerry

Kerry has an airport in Farranfore, located between Killarney and Tralee and about one and a half hours drive from Cork and Limerick cities. Bus services are available directly from the Airport to Tralee, Killarney and Limerick, and the nearest train station is within 10 minutes.
You can fly from Dublin, London Stansted & Luton, Frankfurt-Hahn and Manchester. The closest international airport is Shannon in Co. Clare.

Getting around

Bus is probably the cheapest and easiest way to travel around if you don't have a car. You can plan your trip and buy your tickets online at Bus Éireann. The railway is another option, especially to connect with Cork, Limerick or Dublin. Check the Iarnród Éireann website for details and buying tickets. If you are driving, make sure to pay a visit to the well-known Ring of Kerry ( N70 road), which circles the Iveragh Peninsula.

Travel to the islands

Valencia Island is linked to the mainland by a bridge. It’s a small place, but you might know its name from meteorological reports. To go to the Skelligs or the Blaskets, however, you’ll need to take a boat.
Be prepared to experience rough sea – it is actually advised to contact the boatman about conditions in the morning of your trip. From May to September they are several companies operating boa trips to the Skelligs from Waterville, Valencia Island, Ballinskelligs and Portmagee. Costs are usually between 35 and 40€.

Blasket Islands Dún Chaoin Ferry Co operates a daily Ferry to the Blaskets from Easter to October. They also provide an Eco Marine Adventure Tour, which is a 3 hour guided boat tour around the Blasket Islands Archipelago.
