My friend and I were truly blessed to find Paul Brown as a RING OF KERRY private tour escort. Paul was, first of all, very reasonable in cost. His taxi is new and very comfortable. BUT what you really pay for is his charm, hospitality and his knowledge of just about everything in the area. He knows all the non-touristy... More

We were fortunate to have hired a car and driver to take us around southern Ireland including the RoK. There are many large tour buses and tourists trying navigate their way through the very winding narrow roads. Renting cars can be very expensive and having to concentrate on driving is the last thing we wanted to do. Gene O'Sullivan of... More

If you enjoy and appreciate the beauty of nature this is a must see drive (as is all of coastal Ireland) The mountains the lakes, the beaches!!!!! The beginning our day was hampered by fog, but cleared in the afternoon. Stopped to view Caragh Lake after taking a long, winding, dirt, one car road to the top. Would have been... More

If you love the beauty of nature you will LOVE the Ring of Kerry....from gorgeous bridges, vistas, seashores, mountains, valleys...just more beautiful at every turn. The roads could be a bit treacherous at times because of constant 'S' turns, but everyone was very considerate...it's just a challenge combined with us driving on and shifting on the opposite side that we...

This is an amazing-do not miss-drive in Ireland. The high mountain views of the Iveragh Peninsula are not to be missed. There are many overlooks to stop at to enjoy the cliff views over the water.

The Ring of Kerry is a fantastic drive. I am glad we opted to rent a car and drive it ourselves vs a tour bus. The roads are narrow and bumpy with lots of curves and hills, but being in our own car, we could stop and see what we wanted for as long as we wanted. The "tourist" stops,... More

This route through the coastal and mountainous regions of county Kerry is incredible. You'll enjoy scenic overlooks and coastal plains that are unlike anything you can see in the states. The trip can be a bit long, but there are plenty of places (shops, cafes, petrol stations) along the way to grab a bite, take photos etc.

Went over to Kerry and stayed in a rental cottage in Caherdaniel. This part of Ireland is amazingly beautiful. Creeks,Coves,sandy beaches and vista's out to the Atlantic to take your breath away. Drove the ring with its wild mountainous ranges,quaint villages,pubs and abandoned houses with turret towers. Great place to bike,walk and swim. As for the people.......adorable and welcoming. If...

While staying in Killarney, my wife and I rented bicycles from O'Sullivans (15 euro a bike) and went to Torq, Muckgross House, Meeting if the Waters to name a few. It was a great time and highly recommended. Don't go to Killarney without seeing these sites.

It's a long drive about 3 hrs to complete the whole ring. We stopped at different points along the way. Scenery is magnificent and the weather is almost always comfortable if you travel in july.
