Discover The red sandstone mountains. Ireland

In the south and the southwest of the central plain, red sandstone mountains rise up, stretching up to Kerry County with its Carrantuohill 1,041m high. Lakes and shredded coasts line the region which is one of the most beautiful and most visited in the country. Since the Irish climate is capricious, it is in spring (May to June) and autumn (September to October) that you can enjoy the most sunshine without bumping into the countless tourists who visit the country in the summer.
