Derrymore (Doire Mór in Irish) is a rural district of County Kerry in south-west Ireland. It lies between the Slieve Mish mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, some 11 km (7 mi) west of Tralee on the Dingle peninsula. A sandy beach known as Derrymore Strand is quite popular with locals and tourists alike, especially during the summer months. Derrymore Island, situated to the east of Derrymore Strand, is a nature reserve supporting many rare plant communities and is an important high-tide roosting area for shore birds.
The name Derrymore is an anglicization of the Irish doire mór, meaning "great oak grove".
