Kerry has a rich tradition in the areas of archaeology, history and antiquities. The Local Studies & Archives section acts as a resource centre for the very many and varied inquiries in this field.

A comprehensive collection of books, tapes, prints and audio visual material has been built up over the years and is added to on a regular basis.

Kerry newspapers are available for consultation on microfilm and are extensively used for research purposes.

If you are planning a trip to Kerry in the near future then you will probably need a vehicle to get around as Kerry is not easily explored by public transport. We can recommend this cheap car hire Kerry Airport option courtesy of the good people at Car Hire Comparison.

Kerry Airport has seen some significant growth in the last decade or so which means more flight options. Make sure to check out all the connections available to get the easiest and most affordable route.
