Tuosist has much to offer to the tourist who seeks the wild and tamed beauty of South Kerry
It’ss an area, which stretches along 37km (23miles) of the northern coastline of the Beara peninsula.
The Derreen tropical gardens are situated 8 km (5 miles) from Ardgroom. Planted over a hundred years ago by the fifth Lord Landsdowne, the gardens boast a wealth of sub-tropical plants and flowers. You can take one of the planned walks through the glades of eucalyptus, giant blue gums and bamboo, which thrive in the soft Kerry climate, and wonder at 43m (140-ft) giant red Cedars.
The Cloonee lakes, Inchiquin Lake, Uragh Lake and Glenmore Lake are ideal for fly-fishing for salmon, trout and sea trout. Day permits for shore fishing at Inchiquin and Uragh lakes are available from Kenmare angling club – enquire locally. Boats are available for hire at Cloonee Lake as well as for deep sea angling from Kilmacilogue harbour.
Tuosist is part of the ancestral home of the O’Sullivans in Ireland and forms a stage of the Beara-Breifne Way which is based on the historic march of O’Sullivan Beara in 1603.
