TWO of Ireland’s lesser-known attractions have been included in a guide of Europe’s top 50 secret places to visit.
The Cromane Peninsula in Co Kerry and Kavanagh’s pub in Glasnevin, Dublin, were chosen as Ireland’s best secret tourist attractions after ‘Lonely Planet’ authors scoured Europe |to find undiscovered |destinations and experiences.
The pub is described as a “cracking little establishment” which is like stepping back in time
The Cromane Peninsula in Kerry is the second Irish destination, included as a detour from the Ring of Kerry.
The book says: “Driving around the Ring of Kerry is an unforgettable experience in itself, but you don’t need to limit yourself to the main route. Hidden off the N70, the Cromane Peninsula is a five-minute drive from both Killorglin and Glenbeigh.
The peninsula’s tiny namesake village sits at the base of a narrow shingle spit, with open fields giving way to spectacular water vistas and multi-hued sunsets.”
Both locations will appear in the new eBook, ‘Secret Europe, 50 truly unforgettable experiences to inspire your next trip’.
