Ballycarbery is a locality in County Kerry, Ireland. The area has the advantage of being close to the Ring of Kerry tourist circuit, a 180km loop that allows you to explore the wild treasures of the region. And Ballycarbery is well worth a visit! It must be said that the spot is best known thanks to its ruined castle, which is very popular with tourists: the Ballycarbery Castle, a building located in the middle of the field, next to cows and sea shores. Simply superb.

Visit Ballycarbery

A wild place, close to Caherciveen.

Ballycarbery is a very sparsely populated area. The area is often deserted, and very appreciated for its wilderness. It must be said that the spot oscillates between greenery, coastline and fascinating ruins.

And for that, you only have to go to the side of its castle! The latter is located in a field facing the ocean. Invaded by vegetation, half collapsed, it offers a breathtaking spectacle. A place full of a dark and fascinating atmosphere that will plunge you into the heart of authentic Ireland!

To complete the visit, don’t miss the Cahergal Stone Fort, a perfectly preserved prehistoric Irish fort from the 7th/VIIIth century. The building has impressive dimensions: 27 metres in diameter, 5 metres thick walls, and heights ranging from 2 to 4 metres! A place that will take you back in time to the Irish Middle Ages!
