Travel Guide to holidays in... Ballinskelligs, County Kerry, Ireland

Ballinskelligs, meaning 'Homestead of the Rocks', is a village in County Kerry, Ireland. It is situated near to Knightstown, Waterville, Chapeltown, Portmagee, Valentia Island, and Cahersiveen and is one of over sixty towns and villages in County Kerry in which Go2 has cottages or holidays lets available.

Ballinskelligs gets its name from the 'rocks' of Skellig Michael and Little Skellig, an ancient monastic colony off the coast nearby. The town has a beach, as well as the remains of a castle and priory. Follow the links to find holiday cottages and lets available in this area on Go2, or view the surrounding area on the map below.

County Kerry sits in the south west of Ireland, to the north west of County Cork, and facing out towards the Atlantic Ocean. It takes its name from the pre-Gaelic tribe who once lived there. The most westery point in the whole of Ireland, in the Dingle Peninsula, is part of the county, as is the Killarney National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty, which has made Killarney one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland.

Kerry is a very scenic county, with lakes, mountains, and the Atlantic coast, with much to interest the visitor. Walking routes in the county include the Dingle Way, the Beara Way and the Kerry Way, and the area is popular with cyclists too, especially the Ring of Kerry.
