University Hospital Kerry

County Kerry is situated in the South West of Ireland on the Wild Atlantic Way and is one of the most scenic counties in Ireland with spectacular beaches, mountains, rolling hills and countryside. Some of the many attractions include Carrauntoohill, the highest mountain in Ireland at 1,039m, Cummeenoughter Lake at 707m located in the MacGillicuddy Reek mountains, the Ring of Kerry and Skellig Michael which features in the recent Star Wars films. The many beaches offer a wide range of water activities including swimming and surfing with the rivers and lakes being ideal for fishing and rowing.

University Hospital Kerry is located in Tralee, the Capital of Kerry which is proud host of the International Rose of Tralee Festival. Tralee is a cosmopolitan urban area where a positive work life balance is part of everyday life.

University Hospital Kerry is a recognised teaching hospital which provides first class emergency, in-patient, outpatient and day case healthcare services to a population of 147,554 which grows significantly during the summer as Kerry is the holiday destination for people travelling from America, Europe and further afield. University Hospital Kerry is the 3rd largest hospital in the South West Hospital Group with strong links to University College Cork and all the post Graduate Royal Colleges in Ireland.
