Liked: wonderful drive, beautiful scenery, excellent places to stop for food. Disliked: the tourist buses. Thankfully, there weren't too many.

Took the O'Connor tour and it was quite nice. Once we drove it ourselves, but the tour was a much better way of seeing it.

When visiting this area right now Carrie is an absolute must to do. Gloriously pretty road and a day adventure. It gives one a tremendous appreciation of this region. Many lovely stops along the way with small pubs and restaurants. You can't go wrong unless you're driving into Gale

Done the ring of Kerry by coach and it is one of the most picturesque areas that we saw in Ireland. Changing vistas make this a very nice drive.

This was a lovely way to spend the morning.We stopped in Waterville, which is a halfway point. It was a vacation spot for Charlie Chaplin and his family. They have a statue of him on the waterside of the road. We stopped for lunch (it was okay), and enjoyed the scenery. Lots of people milling about here. We drove back... More

Wow! this drive was fantastic. We were a little anxious before setting out, envisaging tiny narrow roads and buses. There were spectacular views at just about every turn and plenty of places to pull off the road for better looking and photo opportunities.

We did the Kerry Way for an enitre week and not part of one of those tourist groups. But, when just with a rental car. So worth it! So many amazing sites to see and truthfully better than riding on a bus.
