Caherciveen is located at the tip of the Iveragh peninsula in the Skellig Coastal Region in the south-west of Ireland. Few would disagree that this area, situated between the Kerry Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, is home to some of the most beautiful and dramatic scenery in Ireland.
With a population of only 2,000, Caherciveen is an ideal, safe place for language-learners young and old to mix with local people in a safe and relaxed environment. For the over-18s more than twelve pubs offer plenty by way of live entertainment, traditional Irish music and dancing, and the Caherciveen Celtic Music Festival is a focal point for many in the summer.
The area immediately surrounding Caherciveen is full of archaeological remains from Celtic and prehistoric times. Many picturesque villages such as Waterville and Portmagee are within easy reach of Caherciveen, and the larger towns of Killarney and Tralee are just one hour away. Our excursion programme ensures that students benefit from the variety of landscape, both urban and rural, for which Kerry is famous.
