Causeway is a village in North Kerry, from the Irish “An Tóchar”, meaning “the causeway”.

The village was founded by on an ancient Celtic roadway which originated in the neighbouring parish of Ballyheigue and was said to have ended in Tara, County Meath, the seat of the High-Kings of Ireland.

When the Lusitania was sank in May 1915 off the coast of Ireland, three of the bodies washed up on the shore around Causeway.

A hidden gem along the Wild Atlantic Way is Meenogahane Pier, with a beautiful coastline and an abundance of wildlife in the area.

Swimming and kayaking are popular pastimes at the pier during the year.
