Ardfert, Co. Kerry

Ardfert (Ard Fhearta in Irish) is an attractive and popular residential location within easy commuting distance of Tralee, which is only 8km (five miles) away. The village's name signifies, according to Sir James Ware, "a wonderful place on an eminence", or as some interpret it, "the hill of miracles." Ardfert has also been considered a corruption of Ard Ert, "the high place of Ert", so called after the 5th century St. Ert, who made the place a bishop's see.
