The league was formed in 1971 with eight teams competing in its first season. Its founding members included Tralee Dynamos and Killarney Athletic, both of whom had previously played in the Limerick Desmond League. Other founding members included St Brendan's Park. Tralee Dynamos were the inaugural champions and subsequently became the leagues most successful team.
The KDL purchased Mounthawk Park in Tralee in the mid–1990s. It now serves as both the headquarters of the league and as home ground for the Kerry League representative teams. Several KDL clubs, especially those in the greater Tralee area, also use Mounthawk Park as their home pitch. In August 2015 a new all-weather pitch was opened at Mounthawk Park by Martin O'Neill and John Delaney.
A senior Kerry League representative team regularly competes in the Oscar Traynor Trophy, playing against teams representing other leagues. In recent seasons they have also competed in the League of Ireland Cup. In 2016 a Kerry League U17 team will play in the League of Ireland U17 Division.  Kerry now have both U17 & U19 teams competing in both the SSE Airtricity National U17 & U19 respectively.
