Kells beach is near to so many special locations. The Kerry Way is nearby and there is a major cycle path planned for 2016.

Water sports are available not too far away and hillwalking options are too numnerous to list here.


For sightseeing enthusiasts there is an abundance of options within a few miles and right across the Iveragh Peninsula.

We can advise on most local facilities to ensure that you make the most of your stay at Kells Beach Camping.

Pods offer hassle free camping and prove to be equally popular with couples, families and groups alike.

A camping Pod is an easy alternative to tents while retaining all the ambiance of the "Camping Holiday".

The Pod presents a fresh approach to the traditional camping experience. The Pod is wonderfully enigmatic.

It is many things to many people.

It has real presence but does not impose, beautiful in its simplicity.

Time in a Pod is both restful and energising.

Our Pods are an eco-friendly, sustainable alternative to camping and are designed to be comfortable and robust.

The Pod provides privacy, security and comfort.

The Pod contains a Futon, bedding and towels.

Futons offer a comfortable night's sleep and in a pod the experience is better still.

The size of the pod gives everyone their own space.

You can let the morning rays fill the pod and wake you to the amazing views from the pod.

Parents can sleep easily knowing the their children are safe and comfortable.

All facilities are just metres from the pods.
