Ring of Kerry is a real must !!! One should definitely experience it !! I would suggest going on organised tour instead of driving on your own. Our tour was organised from the hotel ( riverside hotel killarney ) and it was the best value that I found online on my research. At 24 euro per adult with pick up... More

I started out at around 10 and finished at 4, doing the full ring and the Skelling Ring, also. I stopped a lot! After reading so many reviews, I thought it would take longer to finish than it did. For me, the best part of the drive was the extra jaunt I took over to Valentia and the Skelling Ring.... More

wonderful day trip around some beautiful views and areas that are breathtaking. narrow winding roads that compete with the coach buses, really recommend allowing a wonderful guide to do the driving. we went with the O'Connors and would rate them highly. John, our guide was funny and informative.

Not sure if we enjoyed this soo much because we had an incredible tour guide, Tony from Sceptre Tours, but it was an incredible day with scenery you could only see in Ireland. Well worth the day to tour this, although I would suggest a tour bus because driving this is not for the faint hearted! (Narrow roads, stone walls,... More

We rented a car and drove the Ring of Kerry in March. The roads are narrow and windy. If we were to go in the summer, we'd probably take a bus to avoid the traffic. Great views but prior to Saint Patrick's day, there are not many open places so brings snacks.

This is an attraction that is basically a circle around the peninsula that goes through a few villages and you get to see amazing views. The locales told us this would take us about 4 hours but the roads are very narrow and winding, so even though the locals drive 100kph you really dont want to do that. As a... More

We rented a car in Dublin and drove the Ring of Kerry. Well worth driving it instead of taking the tour bus! This way when you want to stop you do and this way you can take in the true country! This is definitely a must to do!!

We rented bikes for the weekend and biked/hiked/camped around the Ring of Kerry. It was phenomenal. Pack plenty of extra dry clothes - it will probably rain, but the views are spectacular and the folks that you meet along the way will add more memories than anywhere else in the world. Would go back in a heartbeat!

This was the highlight of our stay in Ireland. We went around the Ring of Kerry in our rental car, stopping a few times for photos, and it took about 4 hours total. It was spectacular! Torc Waterfall and mountain walk are a perfect way to end the trip.

Stopped off at a few site seeing places along the way and had a meal at the top of Kerry Mountain called the Best View and they where so right. The meals where lovely, and the staf excellent. Also had a souvenior shop inside to look around. Definately worth a visit.
