Introducing Castlegregory & Around
Castlegregory (Caislean an Ghriare), which once rivalled Tralee as a busy local centre, is a quiet village, with a highlight being views back to the often snowy hills to the south (a lowlight is the sprawl of philistine holiday homes).
However, things change when you drive up the sandstrewn road along the Rough Point peninsula, the broad spit of land between Tralee Bay and Brandon Bay. Up here, it's a water-sports playground. A prime windsurfing location, the peninsula also offers adrenaline-inducing wave-sailing and kitesurfing, while divers can glimpse pilot whales, orcas, sunfish and dolphins.
