A wonderful collection of quirky characters, colourful stories and lesser-known sites that captures the spirit of Kerry.

This book now out of print our last copy.

The magnetism of Kerry lies as much in its people as its landscape. 'Hidden Kerry' takes you on the less-travelled paths of the kingdom and is peopled with a varied cast of characters with colourful stories. Open the covers and lose yourself in the story of Lord Kenmare's forgotten mansion, which hosted royal visits until it was consumed by fire in 1913. An amazing edifice of towers, marble and art, it was reduced to a pile of ashes in hours.

You will also meet vibrant characters, such as Lily of the Valley: Lily van Ooost, the Flemish artist who made her home in the Black Valley where she embarked on wildly creative textile projects, including knitting a jumper for Dublin's Halfpenny Bridge. As well as this 'Hidden Kerry' will tell you where to find the county's unknown natural beauty spots concealed just minutes off the beaten track.
