Tucked away on the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s leading goldsmith is far from any High Street. But on the remote Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry, Brian de Staic is closer to the Celtic heritage his life’s work embraces. Kerry is not only home to Brian de Staic, but a wide range of beautiful natural sights If you are visiting our store of planning a road trip around Ireland, then Co. Kerry is a must. We have put together a list of the top 5 attractions in Kerry. 

  1. Skellig Michael: Skellig Michael is best known for its core role in two of the Star Wars movies. It is quite difficult to access so we recommend going there when the sun is shining and with appropriate walking gear. You will get the chance to see puffins, rustic housing as well as fantastic scenery.
  2. Dingle: Dingle is a town in Co. Kerry and is the only town that is situated on the Dingle Peninsula on the Atlantic coast. It is home to quiet coastal roads as well as the Brian de Staic shop. Do not forget to pop in and visit us! 
  3. The Ring of Kerry: The Ring of Kerry is a circuit which consists of rural beauty including views on the Iveragh Peninsula, quaint towns, a variety of beaches and the Atlantic coast.  
  4. The Gap of Dunloe: When you drive through the Kerry Hills you will arrive at the Gap of Dunloe, a narrow mountain pass which is most easily passible in horse-pulled cars which can be found in Killarney National Park. It is also a popular hiking and biking route. 
  5. Kerry Cliffs, Portmagee: Ever heard of these? The Cliffs of Moher are more widely known, however, Portmagee’s cliffs offer incredible walks and beautiful views all the way out to Skellig Michael. They are 85m higher than the Cliffs of Moher and are lesser known as tour busses can’t access them.
