Kerry College is Ireland’s first integrated provider of Further Education and Training. We offer clear routes to employment, third level, and apprenticeship. With five campuses to choose from and up to 180 courses across the board, there is something for everybody.

Study, learn, explore, and unlock your potential at campus locations that are connected to the local communities with instructors, teachers, tutors, and support staff that keep you focused, on-track, and happy.

Prospective learners may complete their chosen Further Education and Training course at one of our five campus locations:

Our Clash Road Campus has a long and storied history of achievement in further education and training in County Kerry. Located on the Killarney side of Tralee town at Clash Road, just beyond the railway gates – learners can chose from a number of full-time courses for progression and employment here. The state-of-the-art Kerry College of Beauty is located on this campus also, playing host to our nationally renowned Beauty Therapy course with award-winning instructors and teachers.
