Kerry is a county in the south-western part of Ireland. For this county of approximately 140,000 inhabitants, tourism is the mainstay of the economy with agriculture coming in at a close second.
Kerry has a milder climate than most parts of Northern Europe. It records some of the maximum amounts of rainfall in Ireland, especially in the mountainous terrain. Summers are the best time to visit with the average temperature at 17°C.
Kerry is the country’s premier tourist attraction largely because of its scenery. It has a varied topography with ten of the highest peaks in the country and rolling plains in the interiors. It has the longest coastline amongst all the counties in Ireland; the coast is along the several peninsulas jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean.
