Kerry is renowned for being one of the most beautiful places in the world. Located on Ireland’s South-West WildAtlantic Way, with stunning landscapes, rich culture and welcoming people, Kerry is the most visited regional destination for overseas holidaymakers to Ireland. 

The region contains some of Ireland’s most iconic scenery and warm culture, including the Lakes of Killarney, the vibrant and modern town of Tralee, the diverse tapestry of the Dingle Peninsula, the famous Ring of Kerry and the music and scenery stretching the four corners of the county, and let’s not forget the vast array of sandy beaches and historic towns.

UHK is located in Tralee, the capital town of Kerry, and is only 30 minutes or less from
the towns of Killarney, Listowel and Dingle.
