I agree with dbloke that a climb up Struicin Hill from the Gap of Dunloe is well worthwhile. This would be particularly so for someone, short of time, but with a desire to get at least a flavour of Kerry's finest. The view down across the Hag's Glen to the two highest peaks in Ireland, Carrauntohill and Beenkeeragh, is very rewarding (see photo), as are the other views already mentioned in dblokes comment's. Clearly if time and energy allows the route up this hill opens up the way to the full Eastern Reeks Ridge. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/656/comment/4154/
