When planning a trip to Ireland, there are a few sights and sounds that are not to be missed by the wandering tourist: Dublin may host Trinity College, the Book of Kells, and countless sessions of live Irish music, but further south in County Kerry is where you can enjoy a pint of Guinness after a day spent perusing the lush countryside speckled with majestic castles and Celtic ruins.
Flights to Kerry will put you right in the “Kingdom”. Hit the road after your Kerry flight lands and follow the wild and often windswept Ring of Kerry.
If you’re a city dweller, paint the town red in Tralee or Killarney and spend a night hopping from pub to pub dancing to the music of local Irish bands.
Kerry experiences a mid-Atlantic climate, with ocean breezes keeping Ireland cool throughout the year. Regardless of when you book your flight to Killarney, you won’t feel extreme conditions of heat or cold.
Flights to Kerry fill up during the summertime, when the weather in the south of Ireland is on its best behaviour and rain clouds dissipate. The Rose of Tralee Festival draws visitors from all over Ireland, Europe and the USA each August. If you plan to take part in the festivities, be sure to make Kerry flight and hotel arrangements months in advance.
The winter months are low season. The weather in October-March is often rainy and cold. Occasionally there’s snow.
