North and South Kerry

The Iveragh Peninsula

The Dingle Peninsula

Scarriff Island

County Kerry Iveragh Peninsula

The name means ‘rough place’ and the island, 5km off Hog’s head on the North side of Kenmare Bay, is almost completely encircled by cliffs and unsurmountable rocks. The monks who built the oratory however decided it was a fine place for solitude and prayer. No sheep however, only goats now.
