Cromane

Cromane is a small rural fishing fishing village in Co Kerry. It is situated 8km west of Killorglin and 6km from Glenbeigh, just 10 minutes off the main Ring of Kerry Road. Cromane is a low lying shingle spit which sits at the western end of Castlemaine Harbour and in 2014 it and the surrounding area were listed as one of the top 50 places in the world as a must see off the beaten track destination. The name Cromane (An Cromán) means hip bone as the spit is shaped like one when looking at it on a map or from the top of a high mountain. Cromane is in the enviable location between the two most scenic and majestic peninsulas in Ireland; Dingle Peninsula to the North and the Iveragh Peninsula extending Westwards. Cromane is one of the few locations where one can view the Brandon Mountain Range, Sliabh Mish Mountains and the McGillycuddy Reeks all at once. Cromane's beach is the nearest to Killarney and the area is well known for its fishing, scenery, flora, fauna and bird watching. Local amenities include a GAA pitch, Catholic Church, post office, community centre and a small selection of shops and pubs.
