Locating Kerry Airport
Gateway to County Kerry and the south-west region of Ireland, Kerry Airport is located in the small town of Farranfore (which is why some locals call it ‘Farranfore Airport’. County Kerry offers a few excellent driving opportunities for tourists, and the airport is the preferred pick-up and drop-off location for hire cars. With help from friendly associates at Europcar, you and your travelling companions will be exploring it yourself in no time.
The airport is accessed by the N23 motorway, which quickly connects to the N22. The single terminal building is located in the north-west quadrant of the airport, with runways to the east and south. As you are driving in from the N22, the turnoff to the Airport Road is clearly marked. Those driving their own vehicle can head to the car parks, which are located either east or south-west of the terminal. If driving courtesy of Europcar, just proceed to the drop-off point, and you’ll be ushered to the Departures Hall.
Passengers arriving at Kerry Airport will find Europcar’s help desk in the main arrivals area. There are many reasons to hire a car at Kerry Airport, but the most compelling is the chance to drive the Ring of Kerry on the Iveragh Peninsula. This is one of the most popular travelled circuits in Ireland, abounding with scenic views, ancient sites and small towns.
One of the most popular stopovers in the region is Killarney town, which can be reached by driving south for about 10 kilometres on the N22. Killarney’s no stranger to tourism, as it serves as launching point for the Ring of Kerry Drive. Alternatively, you can head north to the N21 and follow the signs to Tralee, where the Dingle Peninsula begins.
