Kerry is an incredible place to work and to live. The quality of life, sense of space, affordability and amazing sense of community are only a few reasons why more and more people are choosing to leave city life behind and embrace everything that living in Ireland’s spectacular southwest has to offer.

Choosing to relocate, return home or even open a satellite office in Kerry is choosing to connect with a vibrant and growing community of professionals who are eager to support each other.

The reasons to choose Kerry are endless, but below are some top ones to consider:

01. The Great Outdoors

As the adventure capital of Ireland, Kerry is the gift that keeps on giving. Over 350km of breathtaking coastline, 12 Blue Flag beaches, Ireland’s highest mountain Corrán Tuathail, The Reeks District, 26,000 acres of Killarney National Park are all on your doorstep just waiting to be explored. If health and wellbeing are high on your priority list then Kerry has everything you need to connect with Mother Nature.

A beautiful and safe destination with smaller schools, more affordable childcare, shorter commutes, fresh air and wide-open spaces. Our communities are welcoming and inclusive, making them perfect for raising a family.

03. Accessibility

Kerry is famed for its vast, rural beauty, yet is surprisingly easy to get to. National bus and train services, modern road network and flight connections give residents and visitors to Kerry choice and convenience.

In addition to worldwide flight connections, Kerry Airport also offers seamless connection to the USA and Canada by availing of the US Customs & Border Control pre-clearance service at Dublin Airport.

Home to some of the most innovative and exciting companies in Science, Technology, Engineering, Finance, there is no shortage of opportunities for career development and business growth.
