Local Attractions


In his song “The boys of Barr Na Sraide” Sigerson Clifford describes Cahersiveen as “The Town that Climbs the Mountain and Looks upon the Sea.” The town lies at the foot of Bentee Mountain on the Fertha River and overlooks Valentia Harbour. It is the main centre for the Western end of the Ring of Kerry and is an ideal location for exploring the rugged coast of the SouthWest of Ireland. Cahersiveen has a superb yachting Marina and and harbor and has a reputation for some of the best deep sea angling in Europe. Tha area is of great importance and interest to antiquarians and historians as it boasts many ancient sites including the ruins of the 15th century Ballycarbery castle and the two dry stone forts (Lacanabuaile and Cahergall) which date back to 800 A.D. In the town itself, the Old Barracks Heritage Court is a unique building of Schloss design which was completed in 1875.
