Ballyheigue is a lovely, scenic coastal village in North Kerry, with miles of the beautiful blue flag beach to enjoy.

 The beach is also suitable for many water-sports, such as windsurfing and kitesurfing.

The castle overlooking the village was built by Colonel James Crosbie in 1810. During the 1990s, the castle grounds were turned into a 9-hole golf course.

The area around Kerry Head is renowned for its sea fishing, rock fishing, and a vast array of birdlife.

There are a number of stunning panoramic walks and cycling routes around Ballyheigue and Kerry Head if you are looking to explore the area further.

Ballyheigue is host to an annual summer festival each July, while a long-held tradition is the Pattern Day held on September 8th, for the feast day of the Birthday of the Virgin Mary.
