Ballycarberry Castle Ruins, Co. Kerry

Ballycarberry Castle is about 3k from Cahersiveen. 

The castle stands in ruins and is being taken over by vines.

It was a beautiful and mostly sunny day when we decided to visit.

I would love to visit again to take more pictures when the tide is in.

Exploring old castle ruins is one of the things I really enjoy doing.

 It's a lovely place to visit the roads getting here are really narrow. The ruins are probably not safe for lots of climbing, even though we saw lots of people doing it. Otherwise I highly recommend Ballycarrbery Castle.

  1. Hello,

    I found your blog on Expat Ireland. I just joined and am excited. I am an American woman that wants to work and live in Dublin, Ireland. I'm trying to find a job from here in the states, and was looking for advice, anyone that knows someone that is hiring, etc. I can't wait to move to Dublin. I was there last summer and loved it! Your pictures are wonderful. Seems like you've been on some beautiful adventures. I'm Kahjdc at the expat blodg Ireland site. Would love to hear from you.

    I really appreciate seeing all your wonderful pictures and journeys - and there is a lot nearly in your own backyard everywhere in Ireland....scenic beauty and history at your fingertips.
