Waterworld – Where The Fun In Water Begins

At the very edge of Europe, as far west as you can go in Ireland, is the breathtaking Dingle Peninsula, once described by National Geographic as “the most beautiful place on earth”. It’s a place of spectacular seascapes and landscapes shaped by the elements, with a wild and rugged coastline of steep cliffs and wide sandy beaches. A place where the mountains roll into the ocean, where the Atlantic hugs the land, you’ll find Brandon bay and the Maharees Peninsula, the Gold coast of the Dingle Peninsula. The Maharees, Castlegregory is the home to Ireland’s oldest family run watersports centre, Waterworld. Waterworld, with her sister company Waterworld Watersports can cater for the watersports enthusiast above and below the water, with dive courses for beginners to instructor levels, daily dive trips around the Maharees islands, Surf camps and surf lessons at Brandon bay, canoeing, paddle boats and the famous water trampoline in sandy bay and the power boat courses run from Scraggane bay. The Atlantic, we Dive it, we Drive it, we Surf it, we live it!

Reasons to Visit Kerry

Introducing County Kerry

Kerry is as close as you’ll get to the mythical Ireland: that Celtic kingdom of misty mountains promised by glossy brochures, Hollywood and our daydreams. Between the county’s snow-capped summits are medieval ruins, glacial lakes, coastal peninsulas, blustery beaches, deserted archipelagos, secluded hamlets, and larger towns where live music sparks up every night.

Most visitors touch down in Killarney. The townsfolk know how to run a mean hotel and serve an Atlantic catch or a rack of Kerry lamb. Instead of municipal gardens there’s a 10, 000-hectare national park, which can be explored by ‘jaunting car’ (pony and trap) and a boat across the lakes. In the nearby Gap of Dunloe, the road winds crazily beneath the Macgillycuddy’s Reeks range, which includes nine of Ireland’s 10 highest peaks.

Tourists often arrive at the coast with the idea that the iconic Ring of Kerry is a ‘place’ they can visit. In fact, it’s a 179km circuit of the Iveragh Peninsula, where the mountains-meet-ocean beauty makes for one of the world’s great road trips. To paraphrase one pub sign, you’ll enjoy Ireland’s best known views… fog permitting. Across a dolphin-inhabited bay, theDingle Peninsula is home to one of the country’s highest concentrations of ancient sites and Mt BrandonIreland’s eighth highest peak.

Such magnificent scenery is, of course, a magnet for buses, but the hordes can be escaped by using back roads and mountain passes. As for the local folk, Kerrymen are famous throughout Ireland for their proud provincialism and country cunning. Just listen to the outrageous yarns told by the ‘jarveys’ who drive Killarney’s jaunting cars.
