Camp (Irish: An Cam) is a small village near the Slieve Mish Mountains in County Kerry, Ireland, close to the west coast. It is close to the Dingle Way and is a destination for holiday makers. The village has been associated with the Milesians legend,[1] thus the first possible recorded history from the area dates to around 1700 BC.[2] Local rail transport used to include the route along the Tralee and Dingle Light Railway.[2]

Killelton Church, a medieval National Monument, lies 2.5 km (1.6 mi) to the east.
