Beautifull scenery

Beautifull drive along the ring of kerry. I would surely recommend this to other tourists. We had rent a car so we stopped all the time and took lovely fotos

How anyone can rate this scenic drive as poor, or terrible is beyond me. Even with grey skies and light rain at the beginning turning to sunny intervals later, the scenery was spectacular. Yes, in places the road is narrow, steep and twisting, but driving with care it can be navigated easily enough, even in a long wheelbase seven seater,... More

Very beautiful scenery that took my breath away in places. But you can't be troubled by careening along incredibly skinny two way, roads with steep cliffs in a full sized coach bus. Tour Guide had us rolling with laughter at his puns, ditties, tales and singing along to a number of pub tunes. Though I was by myself, I was... More

As a non-driver we took the opportunity to book a tour of Kerry via O'Connors; and what an excellent trip it was; a wonderful experience of a hidden spectacle. The beauty is beyond belief even though the weather remained damp, windy and wet for most opart of the day. Our driver, knowledgeable Mick, cheered us all with his witty anicdotes... More

Prepare for a long drive. Take your time to explore some of the places along the road. We had only one day, but managed to see a lot, but not everything. There many very narrow winding roads. Our highlights: Rossbeigh beach Waterville Derrtname/Caherdaniel beach restaurants in Kenmare

We travelled by car. We stopped to see the sheep and the dog trials at Kells then spent most of our day on Valentia Island at the grotto, tetrapod, and Geokaun (Fogher Cliffs). We stopped at other viewpoints along the way. The roads are very narrow on Valentia Island but the sites were beautiful, especially the cliffs.

I'd heard that the Ring of Kerry was the most beautiful scenery in Ireland. It's pretty, but not as spectacular as some other coastal areas. We just drove through without stopping and perhaps if we'd spent more time, we would have appreciated it more. If you go, maybe plan to stop for lunch or a bit of shop browsing along... More

What a great trip. Spectacular scenery. Take your time, enjoy the views and just breath.... Be careful while driving on the narrow roads.

A wonderful way to see the true nature of Ireland. The countryside is right out of a picture book or calendar. The mountains, the coastline, the fields, all are equally beautiful.

The Ring is a circular tour of just over 110 miles using the N70, N71 and N72 roads starting and finishing in Killarney. As mentioned elsewhere, coaches use an anti clockwise route around the ring and the best way to avoid them is to start early and head anti clockwise. However the first half of the route from Killarney to... More
