We drove the Ring of Kerry in bright sunshine and by motorbike and were very disappointed. The roads are broad and most of the times very straight or just a few curves, out of the total of 200km, only about 30km at the tip of the peninsula are really enjoyable for the ride and the view. Also the towns are... More

This is a must do for anyone visiting Southern Ireland. Best done by coach so you can concentrate on the views and benefit from the additional height you get from a coach. The scenery was breathtaking and we were fortunate enough to have a sunny day. The guide was most informative and we discovered what an interesting part of the... More

Sometimes expectations exceed experience and this was one of them. If I had to pick between Ring of Kerry and Dingle, I would go with Dingle. Ring of Kerry is pretty, but I don't know if my husband and I have seen so many gorgeous coastlines that are expectations were too high, but it left us wanting.

Definitely recommend, allows you to see a lot in one day, even though there is a lot of time spent in the bus!

The guide was amazing. He knew so much about the area and the history. He was amusing. He was a great driver. The views were amazing. The demo of the sheepdogs was a lot of fun.

We were lucky to have the same guide who accompanied us on our trip around the Dingle Peninsula. He was so full of interesting tales of the area. His knowledge was astounding. We had stops for photo shoots and visited a village constructed to show how people lived in years gone by as well as the Red Fox Inn next... More

We traveled a small section the ring of Kerry due to time constraint from Killarney to Kenmare. Undoubtedly one of the most spectacular rides in Ireland Saw two rainbows on the way that were stunning! Open vistas, waterfalls near the roads, and sheep and deer along the roadway. Take advantage of the pull offs and get out if your car... More

We elected to drive the Ring of Kerry and were glad we did. We took our time and stopped whenever it was appropriate and elected to go early in the morning and drive counterclockwise as recommended by a few locals to avoid the tour bus traffic. It was a great recommendation. There are breathtaking views on all sides--the cliffs, the... More

After we booked the locals said not to take tour but go see Dingle, now we wish we had. The driver didn't talk while driving other than to tell us he was stopping. He could have told us more about the region etc. the stops were organized and timed well,

Drove the ring of kerry in a few hours I think about 7 or 8, not in a hurry stopping every so often, there are lots of places to pull in, lots of the roads are quite narrow, which I loved, you can also leave the ring of kerry to go see little attractions just a few kms off the... More
