Ballyduff, meaning “black village”, is a village in North Kerry, located on the hills above the Cashen Bay, where the Feale River meets the Shannon Estuary and the Atlantic Ocean.

Situated close to the village, Rattoo round tower (pictured above) is the only complete round tower in Kerry and dates back to the late 10th century.

Close to the tower, the ruins of a 15th-century church mark the spot of an Augustinian abbey, which was founded in 1200 and burnt to the ground in the 1600s.

The North Kerry Museum, overlooking the Cashen River, houses numerous exhibits, from Mesolithic and Neolithic periods to the Bronze Age, Iron Age, the Vikings, and more modern exhibits.
