The Ring of Kerry is a amazing route passing through some of the most beautiful scenery is southern Ireland. The route is circular and around 110 miles (180km) in distance. It passes through Killarney with its lovely National Park alongside Lough Leane, around Iveragh Peninsula, passing through Kenmare, Sneem, Waterville, Cahersiveen and Killorglin.  

Along the way there are beautiful views - particularly at Ladies View in Killarney National Park; castles, forts and historic houses including Derrynane House, home of Daniel O'Connor; the impressive glacial valley of Gap of Dunloe; St Mary's Cathedral in Killarney; Skellig Michael - a sheer rocky island in the Atlantic which housed a monastery and now a nature reserve; Torc Waterfall and Ogham stones which contain carvings of the Old Irish language.

If you prefer a slower pace and want to walk or cycle through this part of the world, The Kerry Way follows almost the same route but on quieter roads. 

Practical Info

Best seen by private car or organized tour, start from Killarney and drive the circular route of 110 miles (180km) in a day, or longer if you have time. In summer, the narrow roads get crowded and there is little room to pass at some points so all the buses travel anti-clockwise and it recommended that car travel in the opposite direction, clockwise.
