We did a long and slow drive through the ROK. Though it rained occasionally, but it was worth it. We saw very nice and lovely views. It is definitely not to be missed if you are in this area. Tours are done by some bus companies as well, but we highly recommend hiring a car. Don't bother too much about... More

After reading all the fantastic reviews I was really looking forward to the Ring of Kerry . Unfortunately it was a rainy day, and the views were not that good. It's also a LONG drive, and stressful if your not used to the narrow roads and driving on the opposite side. If I had to do it over, I would... More

Be prepared for a long drive! This took an entire day, with various stops throughout to enjoy the views. Which were stunning! Every time you turned a corner you encountered a new view that was better than the one before. We passed plenty of touring coaches on our journey however we decided to brave it alone. We drove our car... More

The Ring of Kerry is a popular day trip. It is a 179 kilometer long circular tourist route in County Derry in southwest Ireland. Drivers are rewarded with a multitude of scenic views. It is important to know that several of the roads are very narrow and without shoulders, making oncoming traffic with large vehicles an anxious experience. This vacation... More

We did the whole ring and it was nice drive and we saw some nice places and views but it was nothing spectacular. The highlight for me was what is known as the 'Ladies View' which was truly beautiful. A great tip our Irish relatives gave us was to do the ring backwards, that way you avoid being stuck behind...

We started the Ring of Kerry in Kenmare and ended up in Dingle Bay. It was amazing to watch the beautful landscape including fuchsia shrubs, This was really wild wild west. Next time we try to hike over the hills.

Beautiful drive along the coast of Ireland. The only downside to visitors is that the drive time is a bit longer that we were lead to believe.

This is one of those things you are told you have to do and unfortunately, we only got to do part but what we saw, we really liked. Great views of water, mountains, forests and cliffs and some neat little towns throughout. It is definitely something that could take the better part of the day if you take your time... More

This was the last part of Ireland we had not toured and we had certainly saved some of the very best scenery until last. Took most of the day doing the ROK stopping off at several spots for walks/refreshments and just admiring the views. Some really stunning areas of natural beauty and so so worth doing.

There were 4 of us (2 couples) and we had a rental car (Audi A6) which was great around the twist and turns of the Ring of Kerry. We drove counter-clockwise, which was fine with us and we had no problems at all. The 3 hour or so drive is well worth the time spent. There is plenty to see... More
