If you’re looking for a tourist map of Kerry with things to see and do plotted out, this should come in handy.
While building out the County Kerry section of our site, we spent a little over a day whipping up a Google Map of Kerry.
It’s filled with everything from castles and family attractions to forests, beaches, walks, often-missed viewpoints and more.
In a nutshell, it’s a handy thing to have if you’re visiting Kerry and you want to find places near you to visit.
Some quick need-to-knows about our Google Map of Kerry with attractions
There’s a handful of nuggets of info to be aware of before you use the map. Take 20 seconds to read the below, first.
1. It’s split into categories
As you can see from the snap above, there’s different colour pointers. Each corresponds to a category; Walks and hikes, beaches, family attractions, viewpoints and ‘main’ attractions, e.g. Killarney National Park. You then simply zoom in on the place you are and find a clatter of places to visit nearby.
2. We’ve done our best to make it accurate
Although we spent countless hours bashing away on creating this map, there’s likely to be some places plotted that are slightly off. This tends to happen when the location within Google Maps has been incorrectly entered, so please do keep that in mind when using it.
3. You need to log in (takes seconds)
We have the Google Map of Kerry below ‘locked’. I know this isn’t ideal, but here’s why (it’s free and takes seconds to access):
