It consists of supermarkets and small pubs, and Kerrykeel Motors and Donegal Creameries PLC. Kerrykeel is also in close vicinity to the popular tourist area of Portsalon, and serves as the gateway to the Fanad peninsula.
In 2013, Kerrykeel was mistakenly named the 'Crime Capital Of Ireland' after a computer glitch at the Central Statistics Office. With a population of just over 400 people, Kerrykeel was said to have an increase in sexual assaults, burglaries and theft. Later the CSO stated that Kerrykeel was mixed up with Kevin Street in Dublin. The error was later rectified.
