A lady in a shop in Killarney suggested that we do not do the whole of the Ring of Kerry as the views are restricted and suggested that a visit to the Dingle Peninsular would offer better scenery.We decided to do the first section from Killarney to Sneem. The road is twisty and tree lined and very pretty. The views... More

My partner organised this trip i and wasn't sure whether sitting in a car all day driving was something i was looking forward too. My mum had just been here and said I should do it. I am so glad i listened to her and my partner as the views were beautiful. There were views of lakes and of the... More

Spent 4 days in Killarney, Ireland. On Monday, we took a tour of the Ring of Kerry and on Wednesday we toured the town and area of Dingle. We can't handle the BIG tour buses, so we hired a tour and taxi service, Killarney Tour and Taxi, THIS is the only way to tour Kerry. They picked us up at... More

Driving the ring of Kerry was certainly worth the experience! The views are just fabulous. But bear in mind that you need time, best more than a day. There is much to see and you might encounter lots of traffic. Driving can be tricky with small roads and big tour buses on the road! We stayed in Ballingskellig and in... More

Beautiful drive around the Ring of Kerry. A must see. You cannot come to Western Ireland and miss this. Plan to spend the day.

Some great scenery, but bare in mind if you want to get the most out of the trip, you'll need a whole day at least (not like us, who needed to head north and had six hours). You'll end up missing lots of bits, so best bet is to take it slowly, visit as much as you can, and enjoy... More

We toured the Ring of Kerry after starting to tour the Ring of Beara based on advice of a local. The Beara wasn't what we were expecting,so we backtracked and went to Ring of Kerry .very glad we did! We started the Ring about 430 in the afternoon. We saw one tour bus and no traffic jams. We were able... More

We considered driving but were put off by the reviews plus the hassle of finding the best sites. We ended up taking a Wolfhound Adventure tour - 12 people and lead by the amazing Dave o'Connor. Saw Kerry and Dingle and Beara peninsulas which were even better than Kerry. Stunning countryside, lots of good accommodation and excellent food. Locals were... More

This tour was ok but if you can only choose this or Dingle / Shea Head, do the Dingle. This is a pretty tour, but it is VERY crowded & loads of large buses. Dingle town is busy but the Shea drive is much narrower & therefore the large buses cannot do this trip. Also in comparison as to beauty,... More
