Living on the shores of Caragh Lake, Ring of Kerry & welcoming the Wild Atlantic Way

When people asked us 18 years ago “Why are you moving to Caragh Lake?” they could not understand trading a bustling social urban town life with the ruggedness and wildness of rural life along the Ring of Kerry. We got it though – we could enjoy the natural etheral beauty of Castlemaine Harbour and Cromane out along the horizon to Dingle Bay capturing the shimmering dunes of Rossbeigh and Inch. We could look out across the harbour to the spine of the Slieve Mish Mountains as they connected with the Brandon Mountains further west along the Dingle Peninsula. We could turn west to enjoy the wooded hills and mountains surrounding the quaint and charming village of Glenbeigh and finally, turn south to feast our eyes on the idyllic tranquillity of Caragh Lake with its majestic backdrop of the Kerry Highlands and MacGillycuddy Reeks.

Being on the Ring of Kerry, we have shared our experiences with so many friends and visitors, whilst always encouraging them and others to slow down and spend more time. With this in mind, we are now thrilled to welcome the Wild Atlantic Way, which has been created and developed to highlight the wonderful communities, destinations and experiences along Ireland’s wild-west coast but also to highlight the hidden gems that have always been here but never quite discovered. We hope, through our blogs, to share our hidden gems with you for as you will discover, Caragh Lake is not just a lake, it is a lake with many untapped treasures…
