Map of Portmagee, Ring of Kerry, South Kerry
and Ireland

 

First of all, Portmagee is in County Kerry, Ireland’s most beautful county. Portmagee is the perfect base from which to explore the area’s amazing scenery and character. We are just 10 miles (16 kilometres) off of the famous Ring of Kerry, which as you can see runs right around the Iveragh peninsula. Killarney, and its famed beauty are only just over an hour’s drive away.
