At Kerry Airport we are committed to continuous route development, to provide direct access into Kerry for visitors worldwide.

With daily access to Dublin Airport with Aer Lingus Regional, passengers can connect worldwide from Kerry Airport.

Kerry Airport is situated in the South West of Ireland, and after Dublin (capital) this region is the most visited for holidaymakers in Ireland, as noted by Failte Ireland, the region attracts 26% of all holiday makers after Dublin, which attracts 37%. However, it is widely recognised that many visitors spend a relatively short time in Dublin.

Kerry is a leader in tourism with 1.3 million overseas visitors spending €337 million in the county in 2017, and in the same year Kerry accounted for 14% of overseas visitors to Ireland. Currently 27% of all U.K. visitors to Ireland will stay in the South West region.
