Derrynane/Caherdaniel

 

 

Derrynane ActivitesCaherdaniel is a small coastal village situated half way around the Ring of Kerry. A great place to stop on the Ring of Kerry to explore the magnificent beaches and try out some of the sea sports on offer. One mile from Caherdaniel you have Derrynane Beach, one of the most Beautiful and cleanest Beaches in the World. Here you can explore one of the 3 Beaches and an old Abbey.

 

A little over 2km to the west of Caherdaniel lies Derrynane House which was built in 1702 and is now on a 120 hectare national park. A huge figure in Irish history, Daniel O'Connell once resided here. During a time when Ireland was governed by the British, O'Connell succesfully campaigned for the lifting of anti-Catholic laws that were empoverishing the country. Derrynane House is open to the public with exhibits relating to the fascinating story of O'Connell.
