Ireland is renowned for its green, green landscapes, lovely villages and wild cliffs and seas. In south-west Ireland, on the Iveragh Peninsula you get all of this and more. Known as the Ring of Kerry, this famous tourist drive sums up Ireland in one scenic go-around. The main road is about 112 miles long but you’ll want to take lots of diversions. (If you drive round without stopping it takes about four hours.) There are old monasteries and pagan standing stones (Ogham stones), lakes, national park, beaches and sea.
