County Kerry is part of the Wild Atlantic Way
County Kerry is part of the 9 county, 2,500 Kilometre coastal route known as the Wild Atlantic Way. On calm Summer days there is no place like it on earth. Beautiful rugged scenery and amazing vistas. On bad weather days the ferocity of the wind, rain and churning seas show you exactly why the western coastline of Ireland is the shape it is.
Along the way you will be treated to amazing vistas unique to Ireland. You may recognize the one above from Star Wars episode 7 and 8.
Skellig Michael is a twin-pinnacled crag 11.6 kilometres west of the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland. The island is named after the archangel Michael, while the word "Skellig" is derived from the Gaelic sceilig, meaning a splinter of stone.
Tourist shops along the route will sell a variety of Irish nic-nacs aimed specifically at the tourist trade. Many of the items you will find will be made by Irish crafters but there is an element of imported mass produced goods on offer too.
The pieces I make are from Irish hardwood trees which are dried and fully processed in my workshops. 100% authentically Irish.
If you have chosen that route you may wish to pick up an Irish handcrafted gift while driving through Kerry. I can arrange a viewing appointment for you or your group. Check out my online store here
