When I heard this was one of the most scenic drives in Ireland I had high expectations. Yes, you see beautiful scenery and drive through some interesting towns, but you see that driving around Ireland anyway, so it didn't really seem that special. I did the drive in early Sept and the haze was so strong the views were clouded... More

A 110 mile trip of gorgeous countryside, mountains, seas and valleys. Good food and just a good day of jaunting along Ireland's gorgeous countryside. A must for anyone who goes to Ireland. Seeing is believing.

We had a private tour from Killarney Tours & Taxis and it was a great experience. I will review them separately but the places we saw were beautiful. Little Skelligs (little rocky islands) off the coast, beautiful shorelines and more shades of green than you can count make this day trip a once in a lifetime experience and if you... More

What a beautiful place! On my wish list as a place to visit and it did not disappoint. We were lucky to be on a tour bus as it is a long coastal drive on winding roads but every corner brought another gasp of pleasure. Lots of stops to take photos and again praise to the driver who knew the... More

There is a lot of driving and some on tiny winding roads. It would be best to let someone else do the driving and you sit back and relax and take in the beauty. It is a lot of driving but the Ring of Kerry, which is a 100 mile coastal panoramic drive, is full of seascapes, mountains and brightly... More

This trip is definitely a lot of driving, sometimes on narrow roads. Having said that, I highly recommend it. However, if you do decide to drive it, do yourself a favor and add the Skellig Ring to your trip. It will add on a couple of extra hours but the views are the best we saw in all of Ireland.... More

We enjoyed our Ring of Kerry trip and were especially glad we took a tour bus and let someone else do the driving. It was a long day with many stops for pictures and lunch, etc. but well worth it. Lots of great views but also lots of winding narrow roads. Our bus service did a great job. We used... More

I'm doing same review in ring of kerry and ring of dingle (slea head drive) and I'm giving both 5 stars as I think both are excellent but for different reasons which I hope to explain by giving what I liked best of each drive. Ring of Kerry - saw other reviews saying it's overrated...not sure what they expected but... More

Took a bus tour for this on Deros bus tours. Much better to not drive yourself so you can enjoy everything.

Sunday 21 September, 2014, what a glorious day to drive around the Ring of Kerry! A little fog as we left Killarney but beautiful clear blue skies for the rest of the day and temperatures in the low 20C's. We were spoilt with the weather but rain or shine it is spectacular countryside. Mountains, bogs, lakes, rivers, estuaries, islands, surf,... More
