This was truly a breathtaking experience and so informative along the way.. We went with Deros Tours and had Michael O'Sullivan as our tour guide. There isn't anything he missed in his narrative. It was a full day with some stops along the way for pictures and a lunch stop at a very nice restaurant.

I visited the Ring of Kerry 25 years ago and it is the same today as I remember it then. Snow-capped, wind-swept hills of rock and grass surrounding valleys with clear lakes. The countryside in this part of Ireland is simply stunning. Driving over a crest of a hill can reveal a quaint village of white houses nestled in the... More

One of Ireland's beautiful sceneries. Didn't spend as long as I'd liked but what I did see was amazing

We were most excited for our day drive along the Ring of Kerry. I had heard it was Ireland at its finest and quite looked forward to it. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate the entire day but we made the most of it anyways. It truly was an all day affair, taking up about 5-6 hours including stopping for lunch.... More

A must see when on the west coast. This place is part of the reason Ireland draws those from all corners of the world

We took one day to complete the trip around the Ring of Kerry. We so wish we had been able to stop at the half-way point and finish up the tour on the second day. There are so many delightful places to stop along the way that we ran out of time. Highly recommend having a hotel stop at the... More

My Fiancée and I drove this scenic road. it took about 3 hours for us, but we stopped several times to take in the scenery and take pictures. My favorite place was the Torque Falls. It was so beautiful and it just so happen to be the place my Fiancée proposed. Very romantic.

We started our trip in the morning when it was raining a bit. During the beginning my husband didn't even realize we had started the true Ring of Kerry because it wasn't all that exciting. Once we reached the shore in the southern areas - the views became much nicer. If we hadn't ventured off on some of the one... More

What a beautiful part of the world. So peaceful and stunning scenery. The cliffs near Port Magee and magical and worth the visit. Drive clockwise to avoid being stuck behind buses. Visit Geokaun Mountain on Valencia Island and you'll get some great views.

Sorry - I know that title sounds sappy, but I loved the Ring of Kerry. This tops the list of my favorite things in Ireland. We were lucky in that the day was clear, cool and sunny. We visited Muckross House in the morning and hit the ring around 11am. The mountains and the ocean made every inch of our... More
