Castlegregory is a village in County Kerry, Ireland. It is situated on the north side of the Dingle Peninsula, halfway between Tralee and Dingle. In the 2011 Census Castlegregory had a population of 243.Castlegregory was named after a castle built by Gregory Hoare in the 16th century. It is the capital of Lettragh, the northern side of the Dingle Peninsula, whose population is now a quarter of what it was before the Great Irish Famine, and it remains the only place in the area which resembles a real village.GeographyThe village is located at the foot of a sandy peninsula called the Maharees separating Brandon Bay to the west from Tralee Bay on the east. Off the peninsula are a number small islands, called the Seven Hoggs, or the Maharee Islands. A small fishing harbour is located at Fahamore on Scraggane Bay, about 5 km outside the village at the tip of the Maharees peninsula. The village is surrounded by the mountains of the Dingle peninsula and overlooked directly by Beenoskee and Stradbally Mountains. To the west is Brandon Mountain. Castlegregory is also the name of the parish which includes most of the north east area of the Dingle Peninsula. The village is renowned as a tourist destination as it is near to spectacular beaches located on the Maharees peninsula. Castlegregory Golf and Fishing club, a nine-hole links golf course is also located nearby, to the west of the village on the shores of Lough Gill, a freshwater lake.
